Added DiffLines:

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: While the [[UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis Genesis]] and [[UsefulNotes/SegaMasterSystem Master System]] [[VideoGame/TazManiaSega games by]] Creator/{{Sega}} are considered good, or at least passable, the UsefulNotes/GameGear version is an atrocious wreck. The graphics are hideous and the controls are sluggish and awkward, which only adds to the FakeDifficulty that's already present.[[note]]The first level involves outrunning a boulder and requires absolute perfection and ends with a LeapOfFaith, while the second requires you to know the exact route through a runaway mine cart level or else you'll hit a dead-end and die.[[/note]] The only boss in the game is a serious case of GuideDangIt[[note]]You have to jump up and hit hanging icicles with your spin attack, which for some reason causes fire to shoot out from the floor[[/note]], and the sound and music...well, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BISQ1A4VFxg just have a listen for yourself]].


* HilariousInHindsight: The show is known for many reasons, including its use of NoFourthWall {{Running Gag}}s implying that the characters are really acting it out behind the scenes. Come late 2016, in which the trait of constantly BreakingTheFourthWall has influenced ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan''.

Added DiffLines:

* GeniusBonus: Wendell T. Wolf is the last Tasmanian wolf (or thylacine) which went extinct in the 1930's. Ever since they were declared extinct, there have been reported sightings in both Tasmania and mainland Australia.

* TheyJustDidntCare: Taz' relatives all [[FurryConfusion speak perfect English]] ''[[CulturalTranslation with American accents]]''. And his mother's car is left-hand drive.
** In fact, Bushwacker Bob, his Mum, Constance, and Mr. Thickly are the ''only'' characters with Australian accents.
** Kiwis don't live in Australia. They live in New Zealand. And compare Wendell to what he's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thylacine based on]]
** Tasmania is actually one of the few places in Australia that doesn't have any deserts. Its got a climate almost exactly like England, right down to its rolling green fields and lots and lots of trees. The Tasmania seen in this cartoon on the other hand is simply [[LandDownUnder the outback]], complete with barren rocks and [[AllDesertsHaveCacti cacti]]. Didn't know better, or knew but didn't care? Probably a bit of both.
*** In the opening sequence, Taz stands in front of a depiction of Uluru (Ayers Rock), a famous Australian landmark.

* NightmareFuel: Happens when Molly adopts an adorable kitten. It may seem nice, but to Taz and the viewers, especially to this troper, the cat becomes dangerously homicidal and evil. Even its eyes look very evil when he's in evil mode.

** Axl seems really...devoted to Bull, and really acts with jealousy when the latter hangs out with Taz in "Hypnotazed."
