This is a list of recurring characters from the cartoon series Tiny Toon Adventures, an American animated television series which aired from 1990 to 1993. The show's central characters are mostly various forms of anthropomorphic animals, each one based on a different Looney Tunes character (with the exception of Arnold the Pit Bull and Mary Melody). In the series, the characters attend a school called Acme Looniversity, set in the cartoon community of Acme Acres.

Contents

Buster Bunny

Buster Bunny (voiced by Charlie Adler, later by John Kassir) is the main character of the show along with Babs Bunny. Buster is a young, blue and white male rabbit with a red shirt and white gloves. On several instances in the show, Buster has indicated that Bugs Bunny is his mentor. In the last episode, It's a Wonderful Tiny Toon Christmas Special, Babs states that Buster is indeed her boyfriend. Charlie Adler was Buster's voice actor until the end of season 3, when he was replaced by John Kassir.

Babs Bunny

Babs Bunny (voiced by Tress MacNeille) is a young, pink and white female rabbit with a yellow blouse, a purple skirt, and purple bows ribbons near the tips of her ears. Energetic and random, she is the more ridiculous side of the duo when compared to Buster's cool, more controlled self. One of her trademark abilities is her ease for performing impersonations of celebrities or of her friends (during the feature It's a Wonderful Tiny Toons Christmas Special for instance, she appears as Cher). A recurring joke within the series involves Babs and Buster each stating their names, and then saying "No relation!" in unison. Her mentor is Lola Bunny

Plucky Duck

Plucky Duck (voiced by Joe Alaskey at his "normal" age, Nathan Ruegger as a baby) is a young, green male duck in a white tank top. He is portrayed as greedy and egotistical (much like his Looney Tunes counterpart and idol, Daffy Duck), often engaging in various schemes with the goal of personal glory. Plucky is friends with Hamton J. Pig and Buster Bunny (although he frequently annoys Buster).

Hamton J. Pig

Hamton J. Pig (voiced by Don Messick) is a young, pink male pig with blue overalls. Based on Porky Pig, Hamton's role in the series is as a straight man, often against Plucky's antic. Hamton is also shown as being obsessed with cleanliness, as well as being an over-eater.

Elmyra Duff

Elmyra Duff (voiced by Cree Summer) is a redheaded girl. She wears a blue blouse, a white skirt, black Mary Janes over white socks and a blue bow with a skull at the center. Based on Elmer Fudd, and basically bearing the reverse of the letter's last name as her own, she is one of the few human characters in the series. Like the animal characters, she attends Acme Looniversity where she also serves as the nurse to the point of sometimes duplicating herself like in The Acme Bowl where two Elmyras are skipping happily carrying injured players off the football field in the game against Perfecto Prep. Elmyra is obsessed with having animals as pets,and will chase them or trap them in order to take them to her house, where she locks them in cages, only taking them out to squeeze them or play with them as if they were dolls, with death being the implied result of her affection (one episode depicts a massive pet cemetery in her backyard). The fate of Elmyra's pets is well known to all; for this reason, her appearances are often preceded by a stampede of fleeing animals, amongst which cast regulars can also be seen trying to escape. After the stampede often comes a happily skipping Elmyra.

Another trademark of the character is her ignorance; she is unaware that her affection is in fact a form of torture, even when confronted by the zombies of former pets come from the grave to exact revenge; in her mind, she is a dedicated, loving pet enthusiast whose pets tend to die quickly in her care. Thus, she is more of a polar opposite of Elmer Fudd; while he hunts animals, but can never kill them, Elmyra loves them, but often kills them in the process. She is also shown to have a crush on Montana Max, doting on him lovingly and thoroughly enjoying every moment in his presence, despite his insistence that she leave him alone.

Montana Max

Montana Max (voiced by Danny Cooksey), often nicknamed "Monty," is a young, brown-haired boy. Based on Yosemite Sam, he is bad-tempered, loud-mouthed, money-hungry tycoon. Like Elmyra, he is a human and attends Acme Looniversity. He is portrayed as a very wealthy character, living by himself in a mansion and not having any friends.

Fifi La Fume

Fifi La Fume (voiced by Kath Soucie) is a young, purple and white female skunk with a pink bowed ribbon in her hair. She speaks with a French accent. Based on Pepe Le Pew, she shares his character trait of seeking affection, only to find the object of her affection repulsed by her scent. She lives in a striped Cadillac in a junkyard.

Shirley "The Loon" MacLoon

Shirley the Loon (voiced by Gail Matthius) is a white loon who wears a pink shirt and has long gold hairdo which is curled at the front and a large pink ribbon. She is friends with Fifi and Babs, with whom she completes Acme Loonerversity's trio of cheerleaders. She speaks with a Valley Girl accent and shows psychic powers, such as mind reading and telekinesis and is occasionally accompanied by her purple aura form, which sometimes has a mind of her own. Her name is sometimes given as Shirley MacLoon, a takeoff of Shirley MacLaine. She is also based on Melissa Duck and had a speaking only appearance in the Animaniacs episode, "Meet Minerva".

Furrball

Furrball (voiced by Frank Welker) is a young, blue male cat with a hole on his right ear and a bandage on his tail. Furrball is usually depicted as living in a cardboard box in an alleyway, although other times he is shown as one of Elmyra's pets and briefly had a home with Mary Melody. He is less anthropomorphic in nature than the other animal characters, generally walking on all fours and almost always a mute, except for typical cat sounds. He is based on Penelope Pussycat and Sylvester. In one of these speaking roles (Cinemaniacs), he was voiced by Rob Paulsen in a mockup of Leonard McCoy from Star Trek.

Dizzy Devil

Dizzy Devil (voiced by Maurice LaMarche) is a young, purple male Tasmanian Devil with a yellow beanie, as well as one pink eye and one green eye. He is based on Taz. Like Taz, Dizzy spins around in circles and eats constantly; also like Taz, his speech is generally monosyllabic or composed of random noises. Dizzy is also adored and sometimes accompanied by a trio of young ladies, who often make the other guys, even Montana Max, go crazy.

Gogo Dodo

Gogo Dodo (voiced by Frank Welker) is a young, green male dodo with blue shoes, and a pink and purple umbrella sticking out from the top of his head. Unlike the other characters who attend Acme Looniversity, Gogo is shown to live in a bizarre separate world called Wackyland. During one of the series episodes, in which a roadshow owner kidnaps several Wackyland creatures to attract a better audience, Dodo explains that he and his fellow inhabits weaken and can even fade from existence entirely if they are out of Wackyland for too long. According to series writer Paul Dini, Gogo is one of two Tiny Toon Adventures cast who were direct relatives of one of the Looney Tunes characters; in this case, Gogo was the son of the original dodo from the 1938 Looney Tunes cartoon Porky in Wackyland.[citation needed]

Sweetie

Sweetie (voiced by Candi Milo) is a young, pink female canary with a light blue bowed ribbon in her hair. She is based on the older version of Tweety Bird, and is regularly pursued by Furrball as Tweety is pursued by Sylvester. Sweetie's pink coloring, devious grin, and mean-spirited personality seem to be a throwback to Tweety's early appearances.

Li'l Sneezer

Li'l Sneezer (voiced by Kath Soucie), based on the classic animated mouse Sniffles from the Looney Tunes shorts, is a young, gray male mouse who wears a diaper. Sneezer is shown to be talkative, as well as allergic to many objects. His allergies trigger exaggerated, explosive, gale-forced sneezes capable of seriously damaging or destroying buildings as Elmyra had the misfortune of finding out.

Calamity Coyote

Calamity Coyote (voiced by Frank Welker) is a young, gray male coyote with pink high tops. He is based on Wile E. Coyote. Calamity never speaks, instead communicating through noises and through signs which he pulls out from behind his back. Calamity is also shown to be scientifically proficient, constructing random devices for the other characters. He also pursues Little Beeper unsuccessfully. Like Wile E. Coyote, Calamity's devices also frequently malfunction, although not nearly as frequent as his mentor and some were actually successes where Wile E. Coyote has far fewer to his name. He is also slightly less antagonistic toward Beeper, prefering to work on is various inventions than chasing after the yound roadrunner.

Little Beeper

Little Beeper(voiced by Frank Welker) is a young roadrunner with red and orange feathers and gray sneakers. Much like his Looney Tunes counterpart, Road Runner, Beeper spends most of his time outrunning and dodging the efforts put into capturing him by Calamity Coyote.

Arnold the Pit Bull

Arnold the Pit Bull (voiced by Rob Paulsen) is a white, muscular, male pit bull with a pair of black sunglasses, parodying Arnold Schwarzenegger. He is one of the few characters who does not attend Acme Looniversity. Arnold is shown as having various jobs, including lifeguard, doorman, zoo-keeper, security guard, bouncer, and gym owner. His love interest is another white musclular pit bull interestingly named "Arnolda".

Bookworm

Bookworm is a green male worm with large glasses. He is based on the bookworm companion of Sniffles. He works at the Acme Looniversity library and is shown to be well-read, as well as proficient on the computer. In some scenes, he is pursued by Sweetie. Bookworm does not speak.

Byron Basset

Byron Basset (voiced by Frank Welker) is a brown, black and white male basset hound, generally portrayed as being slow and lazy. One sight gag involves him turning around: to do so, he pulls his head and tail inside the folds of his body, and out the other side. Byron is sometimes shown to be one of Elmyra's pets as well.

Concord Condor

Concord Condor (voiced by Rob Paulsen) is a young, purple male condor. He attends Acme Looniversity and lives in Acme Acres. He is based on Beaky Buzzard. Concord Condor is shown to be shy and dimwitted, often ending sentences in "nope nope nope nope" or "yup yup yup yup". He lives at Acme Zoo, where he spends most of his time relaxing in his nest and watching TV.

Fowlmouth

Fowlmouth (voiced by Rob Paulsen) is a young, white male rooster with a blue, short-sleeved shirt. He is based on Foghorn Leghorn. Fowlmouth is shown to have a short temper. In his first appearance, he was shown to swear when angered, but other appearances show him using euphemisms instead, likely due to Buster's efforts to train him out of swearing in his premiere episode.

Barky Marky

Barky Marky (voiced by Frank Welker) is a young, brown and tan male dog. He is based on the Looney Tunes character Marc Antony. Barky Marky is portrayed as a typical canine who loves to play fetch as well as various other sports and activities. Even though Barky starred in his very own short entitled Go Fetch with Elmyra Duff, as well as making many cameo appearances on other episodes, appearing in the special Tiny Toon Adventures: Spring Break Special and the movie Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation, Barky Marky was still referenced and mocked for his lack of appearances on the Saturday Night Live spoof Weekday Afternoon Live. When Buster Bunny is reading the news out loud from the viewers complaining about him not being in enough episodes, Babs Bunny, posing as a Tiny Toons casting director, asks "Who's Barky Marky?"

Mary Melody

Mary Melody (voiced by Cree Summer) is a young, female, African-American human. Her name is a parody of Merrie Melodies. As with the other human characters in the series, she attends Acme Looniversity. Melody sometimes hangs out with Babs, Shirley and Fifi. Mary has a sweet disposition with almost everybody and is also a bit more realistic about her surroundings than her human counterparts. She also prefers to blend in to her surroundings and with her peers rather than kick them out like Montana Max or squeeze them to death like Elmyra Duff (also voiced by Cree Summer). Mary lives in an apartment building in the city of Acme Acres.

Roderick and Rubella are rivals of Buster Bunny and Babs Bunny, and voiced by Charles Adler and Tress MacNeille respectively, who also voice Buster and Babs. They are portrayed as snooty, rich brats who believe they are above everyone else, but always get outdone and outsmarted by the bunny duo. Sometimes Rubella's name is spelled "Rhubella".

Danforth and Margo Mallard

Danforth and Margo Mallard, like Roderick and Rubella Rat, are minor characters and students of Perfecto Prep. Danforth Mallard and Roderick Rat are roommates, and both are members of Perfecto Prep's Sports Teams.

He attends Acme Looniversity and lives in the swamps and backwoods with his kin folk. He is roughly based on the character Lonnie from the movie Deliverance.

Witch Sandy

Witch Sandy is a witch based on Witch Hazel, and had a one-time appearance on the show in a parody of Hansel and Gretel. She lived in a house made out of carrot cake and drew the attention of Buster and Babs. She tried to use the two in a recipe like Hazel, turning Babs into a real rabbit and summoning her cutlery to try and kill Buster, but she got turned into a goldfish. Sandy wears a cute disguise, but she is actually as hideous looking as Hazel. Unlike Hazel, she is more straight-forward terrifying than her Looney Tunes counterpart.

Lightning Rodriguez

Lightning Rodriguez is a rejected mouse character based on Speedy Gonzalez. He actually made 2 appearances on the show; one was in The Acme Bowl, where he is seen singing with the other 'Tiny Toons' around a campfire at night before playing against Perfecto Prep.

Chewcudda was a parody of Chewbacca, except he is a bull and not a wookie like Chewbacca. He is based on the Looney Tunes character Toro the bull from Bully for Bugs.

The Wackyland Rubber Band

The Wackyland Rubber Band is what the name implies, a band of animorphic rubber bands that are residents of Wackyland. Capable of shaping themselves into various instruments from drums to horns, this lively quartet can play almost anything and is usually featured in large or important events, such as the halftime show of the football game in The Acme Bowl or the source of the music at the junior prom in Prom-ise Her Anything.
