Tiny Toon Adventures

Another 90's(well technically December 89) classic, who else agrees?

I was all over this show in my early childhood days! Always watched it whenever it was on. My parents got me so many merchandise of this show. I had the bedsheets and pajamas. I had a tape of How I Spent My Summer Vacation and would watch it all the time whether on VHS or on TV, though I never appreciate why they couldn't just air it as a movie as opposed to splitting each part as a regular half-hour episode (I always viewed it as a movie).

I had so much fun with the video games like Buster Busts Loose and Wacky Sports Challenge. Me and my brother put hours into the latter.

I'll always love Tiny Toons and am looking forward to the new series.

I think I was way too young for Tiny Toons, because I remember loving it so much yet I don't remember anything about it. I only recognize the characters and the theme song but that's it.

I really do love the movie, I think it deserved a theatrical release.

Most of the show is great with the exception of few environmental/save the whales/cute animals type episodes.

I mostly remember it due to my older brother being a fna of it when he was a kid and recording some episodes on VHS and also owning the How I Spent My Vacation movie. I was a little too young to watch it when it aired on TV. I have more memories of playing the Acme ALL Stars Sports game for the Mega Drive, the NES Tiny Toons game and the SNES Buster Busts Loose game. Honestly, all of those games are pretty damn fun. Buster Busts Loose is a sentimental favourite. One of the best licensed games of all time.

The episodes I remember the most are those about smoking, the fancy restaurant they go to, Thirteen Something where Babs enters a soap opera, Promise Her Anything where Buster invites Babs to the prom and ofc the How I Spent My Vacation movie. I must have watched it 25 times or something.

I remember loving the tv series and movie as well as reading some comics when I was 7 or 8.

I got the mega drive game Buster’s Hidden Treasure and played it a lot in my pre-teens, though I never beat it. Couldn’t get through all the factory levels.

I didn't know there were comics.

Yes! There was an italian magazine called Bunny Band published in 1992-1995 that contained comics, puzzles and other activity pages. The stories were mostly about Tiny Toon (as far as I can remember) but also about "older" Warner Bros. characters like Bugs Bunny and Duffy Duck. I'm sure the comics pages came from some american publication and I think similar magazines existed all across the Europe as well.

I would have been a little too young at the time to remember that. I was born in 1990 after all.

That does sound like the Sesame Street magazine I used to read when I was a kid, though. It was kind of like that as well.

Yeah, never saw the comics, but not surprised, anything with even some popularity would get a comic back then.
