* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Everything that this show laid the groundwork for (lush animation, orchestral score, sophisticated writing) would be not only repeated but improved upon with StevenSpielberg's next cartoon ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. ''TTA'', while it had plenty of [[ParentalBonus jokes for grown ups]], was still, first and foremost, a children's show and is considered to be tame compared to it's successor. Ironically, ''Tiny Toons'' had [[PeripheryDemographic a dedicated college-aged fanbase]] when it aired, while the more "adult" ''Animaniacs'' was mostly popular with kids.

** Elmyra. Most fans didn't like her appearance, [[MostAnnoyingSound voice]], personality and especially the way she treated the more well-liked characters. But apparently, some of the network higher ups [[SpotlightStealingSquad couldn't get enough of her]], [[ExecutiveMeddling pressuring the writers to give her more screen time]] and even a couple of [[PoorlyDisguisedPilot Poorly Disguised Pilots]] about her out-of-nowhere family and, years later, shoehorning her into ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' at [[WriterRevolt the objection of everyone involved]].

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: A strange example in that everything that this show laid the groundwork for (lush animation, orchestral score, sophisticated writing) would be done twice as well with StevenSpielberg's next cartoon ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. ''TTA'', while it had plenty of [[ParentalBonus jokes for grown ups]], was still, first and foremost, a children's show and is considered to be tame compared to it's successor.
** Though it should be noted that when it first aired it was very popular with college students despite being a "kids show" where as Animaniacs was more liked by children than adults.

** Averted; the NES, SNES, UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis, and Gameboy games were fairly decent efforts. Specifically, ''Buster Busts Loose'' for the Super Nintendo is considered by many to be an example of a good licensed game. It should come as no surprise, since the game was developed and produced by Konami. The PS2 game by Creator/{{Treasure}} is also decent, but was sadly never officially released and can only be played on a emulator, and the GBA game by them is also good, and [[NintendoHard challenging]].

(Although if you're familiar with the story of how the band was named, you can see it's entirely possible that the cartoon may have indirectly inspired the name.)

* OneSceneWonder:
** Julie Bruin. She is memorable for [[{{Gainaxing}} perhaps unwholesome]] reasons, as well as being a spoof of her voice actor, Julie Brown.
** Bimbette Skunk from [[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventuresHowISpentMyVacation the movie]], for some [[MsFanservice similar unwholesome reasons]]. Most {{Fanon}} usually has her as Fifi's [[EvilCounterpart Perfecto counterpart]], though later interpretations have been increasingly turning her into Fifi's [[FriendlyRivalry Friendly Rival]]. Despite the fact that she only showed up near the end of the movie to ask for Johnny's autograph [[spoiler: which serves as the catalyst to Fifi's RageBreakingPoint towards him]].

* DesignatedMonkey: Fifi, despite being the show's EnsembleDarkhorse, to the point some theorized she got this status thanks to how popular with the fans she was, what with the writers not being afraid to issue {{Take That}}s to the show's more obsessive fans. Still, even if she didn't get this status due to being popular and the writers pulling a WriterRevolt at it, there's still the fact that her shorts often ended with her in tears where the object she was chasing got away, while Pepe was usually along the lines of "Eh, there are other fish in the sea" when Penelope got away, and the infamous episode where she got captured by [[TheScrappy Elmyra]], and it's still easy to see why she gets this status regardless.

* GeniusBonus: Only older viewers or those big on pop culture trivia will know what Hamton's referencing in "Kon Ducki" when he says, [[NonSequiturThud "I'll take Charley Weaver to block!"]] This is a reference to Cliff Arquette, a regular on ''Series/TheHollywoodSquares'' who appeared in character as Charley Weaver, a character he played on ''Series/TheTonightShow'' and other shows of the era.

(At that time, it was still believed the majority of the original run of ''Squares'' was [[MissingEpisode wiped by NBC]]; thankfully, in 2002, someone uncovered a bunch of episodes in storage that were forgotten somehow.)

* JerkSue: Elmyra. Granted she doesn't know that what she's doing is wrong, but she rarely experiences any karma for it.
