Characters: Tiny Toon Adventures
Here is a listing of the characters featured in the Warner Bros. series Tiny Toon Adventures.

Buster Bunny

The male cohost of the show. Looney Tunes counterpart: Bugs Bunny (more specifically the calm, cool and level-headed part of his personality). Voiced by Charlie Adler until the end of Season 3 and the TV specials, when John Kassir replaced him.

Tropes:

Babs Bunny

The female cohost of the show. Looney Tunes counterparts: Bugs Bunny again (particularly the Bugs Bunny that dresses in drag to trick his enemies, and represents the manic and zany part of his personality), and Honey from the Bosko cartoons. (See also "The Original Looney Tunes" below.)

(Note: To avoid confusion, Lola Bunny didn't exist yet when this show was on the air, so Babs is not modeled after that character, which means Lola is possibly modeled after Babs.) Note that both Babs and Buster apply the Pink Girl, Blue Boy trope directly.) Voiced by Tress MacNeille.

Tropes:

Plucky Duck

Looney Tunes counterpart: Daffy Duck. Voiced by Joe Alaskey.

Tropes:

Ham(p)ton J. Pig

Looney Tunes counterpart: Porky Pig. Voiced by Don Messick.

Dizzy Devil

Looney Tunes counterpart: The Tasmanian Devil. Voiced by Maurice LaMarche.

  • Alliterative Name
  • Big Eater
  • The Big Guy
  • Characterization Marches On: In the pilot, he's actually introduced as an antagonistic character. He eventually grows into the more friendly party animal that he's better known as.
  • Chick Magnet/Interspecies Romance: When he's not acting like his adult counterpart, Dizzy is usually in the company of hot, human teenage girls who are crazy about him.
  • Extreme Omnivore: To the point where the male characters often play a game with Dizzy called "Will Dizzy Eat It?"
  • Kavorka Man: Could count as this, though it is stated in the show that the main reason he is so popular with the ladies is not because of his looks, but in that the ladies always have a great, fun time when they're with him.
  • Nice Hat: His beanie.
  • Wild Card: Even the friendlier "party animal" Dizzy had his antagonistic moments, usually when he let his temper or appetite get the better of him (or when he got the homework assignment "eat a bunny").

Montana Max

Looney Tunes counterpart: Yosemite Sam. Voiced by Danny Cooksey.

Tropes:

Elmyra Duff

Looney Tunes counterpart: Elmer Fudd. Voiced by Cree Summer.

Tropes:

Fifi la Fume

Looney Tunes counterpart: Pepe Le Pew. Voiced by Kath Soucie.

Tropes:

Shirley McLoon

Looney Tunes counterpart: Melissa Duck. Voiced by Gail Matthius.

Tropes:
  • American Accents: Valley Girl. Justified, as her voice actress played a Valley girl before (though when Gail Matthius played Valley Girl Vicki on Saturday Night Live, it didn't sound as high as it does here. Whether Matthius perfected her Valley Girl voice between her short time on SNL and when she was hired to do TTA or her voice was pitched up after recording her lines isn't known).
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Do NOT make her angry. Seriously, don't.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Though actually a very smart one.
  • Granola Girl
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal
  • Interspecies Romance: A loon in a love triangle with a chicken and a duck.
  • Levitating Lotus Position: She does this as part of her psychic powers.
  • New-Age Retro Hippie
  • Nonmammalian Hair
  • Pink Means Feminine
  • Psychic Powers: Has psychic/mystical powers. When she gets angry, it's like a scene out of Carrie (in fact, there was an episode where she went berserk at a prom like in the climax of that work, albeit toned down for the younger crowd [the pig's blood dumped on her was actually fruit punch and she only ended up flooding the gym instead of killing everyone]. Observing this, Babs even namedrops the film for Parental Bonus purposes).
  • Seldom Seen Species: Not many loons in fiction. And she looks like a duck.
  • Shout-Out: To actress Shirley MacLaine; by the time this series launched, she had become notorious for her professed beliefs in reincarnation, UFOs, and various New Age phenomena. (The two Shirleys actually meet in one short.)
  • Species Surname
  • Spell My Name with an S: Some think her name is Shirley THE Loon. Including the programmers of the Tiny Toons videogame.
  • Trickster: As Plucky finds out in "Never Too Late To Loon".

Furrball

Looney Tunes counterpart: Sylvester (although he also shares traits with Penelope Pussycat). Voiced by Frank Welker when voiced at all, except for one episode when Rob Paulsen voiced him instead.

Tropes:

Sweetie Pie

Looney Tunes counterpart: Tweety Pie, specifically with the nastier attitude he had in his earliest appearances. Voiced by Candi Milo.

Tropes:


Calamity Coyote

Looney Tunes counterpart: Wile E. Coyote.

Tropes:

Little Beeper

Looney Tunes counterpart: Road Runner.

Tropes:
  • Jerkass: He has run over Calamity with a truck for no reason many times (often straight after another painful experience). Even worse is in "A Piece of Mind" — in a flashback, it's hinted that Beeper and Calamity are actually adoptive brothers. Yikes...
  • Super Speed












Fowlmouth

Looney Tunes counterpart: Foghorn Leghorn. Voiced by Rob Paulsen.

Tropes:


Concord Condor

Looney Tunes counterpart: Beaky Buzzard.

Tropes:





Gogo Dodo

Looney Tunes counterpart: The Dodo from "Porky in Wackyland", who is apparently his father.

Tropes:
  • Black Bead Eyes: As a tribute to the original Dodo bird, he's the only recurring character to have them.
  • Catch Phrase: "Cuckoo! Cuckoo!" Doubled with his job as the cuckoo bird in every clock on the show — no matter if said clock is an actual cuckoo clock or not.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Quoth the Series Bible: "Gogo operates by his own set of rules, which means no rules."
  • Demoted to Extra: It seems like he was originally intended to be a principal character; he gets a fair bit of attention in the Series Bible, he's one of the characters to be mentioned in the theme song, and he plays fairly large roles in the Origin Episode and several episodes early in Season One ("Her Wacky Highness", "Sawdust and Toonsil", etc.). In later episodes he's a very minor character.
  • Last of His Kind: Referred to as the last of the Dodos in a couple of episodes, though usually only in passing.
  • The Mad Hatter: And how! The theme song says it best:
    "And Gogo is INSANE!"
  • Pungeon Master: Usually visual puns — most of his wacky stunts that aren't completely random or nonsensical are pun-based.
  • Reality Warper: More so than any other Tiny Toon.

Li'l Sneezer

Looney Tunes counterpart: Sniffles. Also voiced by Kath Soucie.

Tropes:

Byron Basset

Looney Tunes counterpart: Sam the Sheepdog.

Mary Melody

Looney Tunes counterpart: None, though she looks like a modern take (read: less offensive take) on So White from the Censored 11 cartoon, Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs

Tropes:

Marcia the Martian

Looney Tunes counterpart: Marvin the Martian.

Lightning Rodriguez

Looney Tunes counterpart: Speedy Gonzales.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He only makes two brief appearances on the show (one being a still shot).

Arnold the Pitbull

Julie Bruin

The Flea Family (Mama, Papa, Itchy and Flio)

Roderick Rat

Rhubella Rat

Margot Mallard

Sphinxy

The Original Looney Tunes

Bosko The Talk Ink Kid and his girlfriend Honey, as well as Foxy and Roxy and Goopy Geer. These guys were the original stars for the Warner Bros. cartoon studio in the early 30's, and after that time were abandoned and drifted into cartoon limbo for decades...until they were brought back for the episodes "Fields of Honey" and "Two-Tone Town", respectively.

  • Art Evolution: The characters (sans Goopy Geer) look nothing like they did in their original appearances, looking more like a combination of the 1930s rubberhose style with the '40s pears and spheres style, and with Bosko and Honey getting their species changed into dog-like designs. Although there's a good reason for this — Bosko and Honey were originally caricatures of old time ministrel black people, and Foxy and Roxy were shameless copies of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Goopy was never an ersatz of any character (not even of Goofy; that character first appeared a month after Goopy Geer made his debut) so he only recieved a mild redesign.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Both of the episodes they respectively appear in.
  • Poorly Disguised Pilot: Both episodes are clear forerunners to the Tiny Toons' Spiritual Successor, Animaniacs. The characters' redesigns are even suspiciously similar to those of Yakko, Wakko and Dot.
