The zany Looney Tunes spin-off is back in Tiny Toon Adventures Crazy Crew Rescues! containing seventeen hilarious episodes (Eps. 67-82) on two discs. The Steven Spielberg produced animated series introduced many new characters such as Buster Bunny, Babs Bunny, Pucky Duck, Hamton J. Pig, Elmyra Duff, Montana Max, and many others, to whole new generation in the early 1990s. The series was set at Acme Acres, where the characters were enrolled at Acme Looniversity with the occasional cameo appearance by veteran Looney Tunes characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd and others.
I was a big fan of the Tiny Toon Adventures when I was growing up. I couldn't wait for school to get out so I could run home and watch the newest episode that aired at 4 o'clock in the afternoons. The characters were energetic and at times rude (especially Babs), in which I absolutely loved.
Thanks to Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, I can now relive my childhood by watching the newest DVD release, Tiny Toon Adventures Crazy Crew Rescues!, which I received free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
The episodes on the two discs are:
1. Pledge Day
2. Going Places
3. Elephant Issues
4. Hog-Wild Hamton
5. Playtime Toons
6. Toon Physics
7. Acme Cable TV
8. Buster and Babs Go Hawaiian
9. Henny Youngman Day
10. Love Disconnection
11. Kon Ducki
12. Sepulveda Boulevard
13. Take Elmyra Please
15. New Class Day
16. Fox Trot
17. What Makes Toons Tick
I'm pleasantly surprised to find the controversial episode Elephant Issue that was never reaired in the United States because the third segment, One Beer, involves Buster, Plucky, and Hamton becoming intoxicated. Also in this volume is the episode Buster and Babs Go Hawaiian, which was written by three fans (Renee Carter, Sarah Cleef and Amy Crosby) and they appear in animated form during the episode. My favorite episode is Acme Cable TV, which pokes fun of many television series and ends with the Buster and Babs literally becoming couch potatoes.
The picture quality is similar to the previous releases as the episodes haven't been remastered. I'm not complaining too much as I'm just glad to have the series on DVD. I do wish that Vol. 3 had special features!
Overall, I enjoyed rewatching each 'laugh out loud' episode from the Tiny Toon Adventures Crazy Crew Rescues!, available in stores January 8th!
