It’s time for the Animanicast: Discussing Tiny Toon Adventures- The Looney Beginning

Join your hosts Joey, Nathan and Kelly in the “Animanicast!” A podcast dedicated to Animaniacs! Today Joey, Nathan and Kelly talk about the first episode of Tiny Toon Adventures, “The Looney Beginning” and give it a water tower rating. Then some more emails are shared from our annual segment “Rob Paulsen is One of the Nicest People on Earth.”

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and the Brain, or Freakazoid! Today, your hosts talk about the premiere episode of Tiny Toon Adventures- The Looney Beginning. The three reflect upon their first exposure to Tiny Toons, talk about the premiere episode, and then share some more stories about Rob Paulsen from our listeners!

The Looney Beginning

An animator is having trouble coming up with a new cartoon show. He creates Buster and Babs, but as soon as they jump off the page he realizes that he must be working too hard, and leaves. It’s then up to Buster and Babs to hire the actors, write the scripts, and find some villains. One villain, Montana Max, steals the scripts and decides to make the show all about him! It’s up to Buster and Babs to save the day with some help from classic Looney Tunes characters like Bugs Bunny!

Rob Paulsen Stories

Additional stories are shared from about Rob Paulsen from our listeners. We will read additional stories in the next few weeks. Got a story to share? Send it to [email protected].
