* The ''infamous'' DownerEnding to "Out of Odor": after spending the whole cartoon being chased by Elmyra, Fifi ends up being caught by her. Naturally, she whips out her tail, hoping her trusty StinkySkunk status will save her from Elmyra's infamously rough "loving"... except that Elmyra's caught a cold from getting soaked in water earlier, so she's immune to Fifi's stench. A happy Elmyra promptly drags Fifi off to her home. That's it, the end. The ''most'' fan-loved character loses to the ''least'' fan-loved character, in a classic TheBadGuyWins cartoon ending. It only gets worse if you're aware that the writers actually didn't like Fifi very much, so they enjoyed putting her through the wringer.

* From "Rock 'N' Roar":
** While looking for his soccer ball, Buster finds an egg that hatches into a dinosaur, which he names "Rover" and [[DomesticatedDinosaurs decides to keep as a pet]]. After unsuccessfully trying to feed him vegetables, Buster finds out that Rover is a T-Rex which mostly eats smaller mammals. Since he has no meat byproducts, [[FaceDeathWithDignity he willingly lets Rover eat him]] and says, "Good night, son.". Fortunately, Rover has a change of heart and agrees to let Buster feed him vegetables.
** Near the end of the episode, Buster returns to the cave where he found Rover's egg. When Rover roars, he opens a door leading to a prehistoric paradise where his brothers and sisters live. Wanting to protect Rover from Montana Max, Buster tells Rover that's where he belongs. Rover wants to stay with Buster, but Buster tells him that if he does, Monty will hunt him for the rest of his life. Afterwards, the two say good-bye to each other.

** It was bad enough that Acme Acres had gotten taken over by Montana Max, but the show itself was taken over by Plucky, who basically made it nothing more than [[ItsAllAboutMe shameless self-promoting]]. He made all the rest of the cast his personal [[ButtMonkey butt monkeys]], going especially hard on Babs. Plucky had always been a {{Jerkass}}, but he TookALevelInJerkass with the way he sadistically victimizes Babs every few seconds for no reason other than his own amusement, completely unprovoked. The sad thing is that Babs had none of her spunky bravado and was completely submissive about the abuse she goes through.

** Just Buster feeling crushed about the above, the one person he cared about more than anyone running from him in fear. All he wanted was for Babs to at least be spared from all the misery, but that hope was dashed. He was downright horrified how Babs' life turned out without him.

* In "It's a Wonderful Cartoon Show", a depressed Buster was contemplating suicide by tossing himself off the film reel. All because he felt he made a mess of things. Then when the mysterious White Rabbit showed him a Tiny Toons where he never existed...

** In the theater, Buster finds Babs watching some old cartoon clips while wishing she could co-host with someone who actually cares about her. Buster then encounters her and tries to remind her of who he is, of who they are, that they're the stars of Tiny Toons. But instead...

*When you think about it, the tale of One Eyed Jack in "The Horror Of Slumber Party Mountain". Basically, One Eyed Jack was born deformed and treated like garbage, hit by a car and taxedermied into an even uglier "freak". Even if "One Eyed Jack" turned out to be Elmyra in a costume in the end, just imagine if there's still a real One Eyed Jack out there and if there is, he's without a doubt the biggest {{Woobie}} in the series. Even moreso than Furball because at least Furball is friends with the main gang whereas poor Jack grew up without a single friend. Ouch.

* "Night of the Living Pets" begins with Elmyra looking through a photo album of all the (good?) times she had with her now-deceased pets. Even though she was obviously the cause of their deaths, the poor thing looks like she was about to burst into tears any minute.
