* AlasPoorScrappy: Watching Elmyra cry is either this or the MostAnnoyingSound.
* {{Anvilicious}}:
** Given its era, the show often tried to give {{A|nAesop}}esops, which often as not wound up {{Anvilicious}}. [[GreenAesop Pro-environment aesops]] were common ("Whale's Tales", the Toxic Revenger shorts, etc.). There was also an episode about why meat-eating is bad that leaned towards parody with an end-cap gag that involves the characters declaring their new-found adherence to vegetarianism and tucking into a veggie tray, only to have the vegetables scream in horror and run away, and an episode about the fur industry that was played a bit more straight. "One Beer" openly parodied these Aesops.
** "One Beer" reportedly angered a number of parents and censors who believed the episode, which was designed to poke fun at moral of the story episodes, was in fact making fun of drunk driving. As a result of these complaints it was pulled from syndication for some time, at least until it appeared on the season three DVD set and aired uncut and uncensored on TheHub, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network (Latin America).
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: This was the first cartoon in ''ages'' to use a fully orchestrated score for every episode, just like in the good ol' days.
* BaseBreaker:
** Fifi. Half the fandom loves her and views her as the show's EnsembleDarkhorse. The other half are sick of her ''because'' of the half that loves her, feeling as if she steals the attention away from the show's memorable humor and writing, as well as a vast portion of the main cast in a vast majority of fanworks, in addition to most of said fanworks falling under a FandomSpecificPlot usually involving her being paired with someone.
** Furball, albeit it to a lesser extent than Fifi. He's the second most popular character in fanworks, mostly thanks to being the FanPreferredCouple with Fifi, and as a result tends to get caught in the crossfire of the above Fifi wars.
* CrazyAwesome: Gogo Dodo and Babs. Buster can show signs of this as well: how else can you describe hitching a ride ''on a meteor'' just to make sure he wasn't late for school?
* CrossoverShip: There's a surprising amount of [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Tails]] X Fifi art and {{Fan Fic}}s on the net. One could argue that there's more of it than Fifi X Hamton, Fifi's ''canon pairing''.
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Julie Bruin, who only appeared in one episode but is quite popular.
** Despite her recent BaseBreaker status, Fifi is again the more popular character. She appears infrequently in episodes and only has 4 shorts of her own, but is by far the most popular character with the fandom, for [[MsFanservice obvious]] [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench reasons]], and many fans wish that she had a bigger role. Being a RidiculouslyCuteCritter and a [[TheWoobie sympathetic character]] also helps. This is probably also why she got cameos in ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''.
*** Lampshaded in the special ''Night Ghoulery".
---> '''World's Biggest Fan''': And when is Fifi going to get her own series?
* FanPreferredCouple: In canon, Fifi and Hamton are love interests. Looking at fanon, you would hardly know this, as most usually pair Fifi up with Furrball, and to a lesser extent, Calamity. Reasons for this vary, but the common reasons seem to be because Fifi and Hamton fell victim to PairTheSpares, being the third odd one out of their respective power trios, and not having anywhere ''near'' as much relationship screen time as Buster and Babs, or even Plucky and Shirley. Similarly, TTA didn't have a Penelope [[note]]The name of the cat Pepe usually chased in his shorts[[/note]] {{Expy}}, and both Furrball and Calamity filled that role for Fifi ''once'', so fans quickly latched on to it. As said, Furrball is generally more popular thanks to being a cat like Penelope, but Calamity is still more common than Hamton is.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment:
** In the two 1994 prime-time specials, WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain make cameo appearances: both of them in scenes prominently featuring Elmyra, shown as being among Elmyra's caged pets in the Spring Break special, and in the Night Ghoulery special. Four years later, [[WesternAnimation/PinkyElmyraAndTheBrain Pinky, The Brain, and Elmyra would be together as part of a show that no one likes or wants to remember]] (and what's worse is that it got a DVD release).
** In one episode, Max claims, "There are laws to protect the rich, you know!" Then when you look at how some of the richest corporations and biggest banks have gotten away with some of the greatest financial fraud in history in recent years and it's as if he's right.
* GeniusBonus: Only older viewers or those big on pop culture trivia or game shows 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.)
* HilariousInHindsight:
** "Fields of Honey" featured Babs upset that she doesn't have a female role model for her in the Looney Tunes universe. [[Film/SpaceJam Fast forward to 1996, and you have Lola Bunny]], who was created to be a [[AffirmativeActionGirl female character made to be a role model for girls]] ([[BaseBreaker for better or worse]]).
** In ''Hollywood Plucky'', a shark spat out Plucky citing he is a vegetarian. A vegetarian shark? [[WesternAnimation/FindingNemo Surely that'll never happen]] [[SarcasmMode in a million years]].
** A bunny named Buster? [[WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}} Doesn't THAT sound familiar?]]
** Compare Plucky Duck to [[Manga/SoulEater a certain other egomaniac who jumps into danger if it brings fame and fortune.]] The best part is, [[Creator/TMSEntertainment TMS]] had a part in both shows. Hell, the entire show in general becomes this once you watch ''Anime/SoulEater.''
** The joke about Roseanne Barr singing the national anthem is referenced when Fifi declared that "It's not over until the fat lady sings" Nowadays, [[http://www.today.com/popculture/roseanne-barr-shows-drastic-weight-loss-2D79506026 Roseanne lost a tremendous amount of weight.]]
** In "Animaniacs!", Dizzy's cartoon is titled "Dizzy Eat World!" Then the band Music/JimmyEatWorld was formed. (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.
* TheProblemWithLicensedGames:
** 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]].
** Played straight with the later games by Warthog and Terraglyph, however, such as ''Plucky's Big Adventure'' and ''The Great Beanstalk''.
* TheScrappy:
** Elmyra is ''very'' widely disliked among fans for her appearance, [[MostAnnoyingSound voice]], personality and especially the way she abused the more popular characters. The real [[KickTheDog kicker]] was that, for whatever reasons, the network higher ups [[SpotlightStealingSquad couldn't get enough of her]], [[ExecutiveMeddling pressuring the writers to give her more screen time]], including a couple of [[PoorlyDisguisedPilot Poorly Disguised Pilots]] about her out-of-nowhere family, all the way up to [[WesternAnimation/PinkyElmyraAndTheBrain shoehorning her]] into ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' at [[WriterRevolt the behest of everyone involved]] years after ''Tiny Toons'' ended.
** A meta, non-character example would be Creator/KennedyCartoons, one of the studios that produced animation for the series. They actually got ''fired'' because their [[OffModel animation was not up to par]], and fans still brand the Kennedy-animated episodes of ''TTA'' as bad episodes animation-wise. Not that it doesn't have its fans, however. Kennedy Cartoons is still slightly better than Creator/EncoreCartoons.
* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Everything that this show laid the groundwork for (lush animation, orchestral score, sophisticated writing) would be not only repeated but improved upon with Creator/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.
* StrangledByTheRedString:
** Fifi and Hamton's entire reason for being together in the show relies purely on PairTheSpares, being the third 'odd-one-out' of their respective {{Power Trio}}s. Their relationship started by Hamton nervously asking Fifi to the prom despite never showing interest in her before the episode, and [[AssPull "revealing"]] he secretly had a crush on her, which again came completely out of the blue. Also, after the prom episode, the pairing was only very seldom referenced again in the form of the occasional brief gag or vague reference. This, among other reasons, is why many people [[FanPreferredCouple prefer pairing her up with Furrball or Calamity.]] In the Supertoons episode, Decoy (Hamton) was smitten with Scentanna (Fifi) and waved to her. She responded by zapping him with a blast of magic that turned him to stone. This was one of two times Fifi ever rejected someone (the other being Johnny Pew).
** Plucky and Shirley also qualify to a lesser extent, though it's a bit more understandable as [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/people/ruegger2.html Shirley was specifically created to be a female counterpart and love interest to Plucky]], and their relationship was revisited throughout the series more than Hamton and Fifi were. Still, their largely incompatible personalities and the general one-sidedness of Plucky's attraction to Shirley means that during the few times they're truly 'together' onscreen, they seem more like [[DesignatedLoveInterest Designated Love Interests]] than anything else.
* TakeThatScrappy: Elmyra getting chased by zombies in "Night of the Living Pets."
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks:
** Voice acting-wise, this is what happened with the voices of the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes' characters in the Venezuelan Spanish dub, since it was the first time they were voiced by non-Mexican voice actors. The controversy was ''so bad'', that WB decided to exclude anything related from them from being dubbed in Venezuelan Spanish and dubbing them in Mexico since then, regardless how much they have to pay for the dub.[[note]]Dubbing in Mexico is normally more expensive than dubbing in South American countries, due of the quality of Mexican dubs.[[/note]]
** Voice acting-wise in English-speaking countries, there are those who feel that the show went downhill when John Kassir voiced Buster Bunny after Charlie Adler quit (even though the episodes Kassir was in were the last new ones to be made before ''Animaniacs'' premiered).
* UnintentionallySympathetic: In "Prom-ise Her Anything", Montana Max is being legitimately stalked by Elmyra, who wants him to go to the prom with her. He does not have feelings for her, and does not even want to go to the dance. But because Max is the DesignatedVillain he is shown as being in the wrong for rejecting Elmyra.
* VindicatedByHistory: This show was often overlooked in favor of the other WB cartoons back in its time. It even got unfavorable reviews because it was a watered-down version of the classic Looney Tunes cartoons (though not as much as ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'') Despite this, the show was popular at the time, scoring a surprisingly large number of fans in the college set, but when it was discontinued and replaced with ''Animaniacs'' the latter series came to overshadow it, causing it to disappear into obscurity for a time...until cable channels and [=DVDs=] brought it back to prominence. Now a days, it's considered one of the very few ''true'' successors to the Looney Tunes shorts of old, and still has a quite a big fandom that's trying to get new episodes being made again.
* TheWoobie:
** Furrball, who alternates between being homeless and one of Elmyra's pets. There are times where he's Mary Melody's pet.
** Also Fifi, who lives in a junkyard and is usually lonely and upset because of all the boys running from her.
*** It arguably gets worse when you realize that [[RealitySubtext the writers often abused her because they hated how popular she was]].
