Sort of Tiny Toons Season 2 coming to DVD

    Except it's missing an episode

    Now, I find this just obstinate. The episode was banned because it was sarcastic and it would suppoedly harm kids... but who the heck are they fooling? There is no one under the age of 25 that would buy this DVD collection. I'm sure they can manage the parody of uber heavy handedness... no one complained when Babs sang "Me so Bunny."

    But it's better than nothing. Betchya there's no special features, though.

    Went to look it up. I remember getting volume 1 & 2. There saying on Wikipedia that there will be a volume 3 in early 2013. (for the U.S.)

    There was a banned episode. I think in either season 3 or 4. Where the characters drank beer and was trying to show kids how bad it is to drink it.

    I posted the official statement from TV shows on DVD. It even says that particular episode that was banned will not be on the set. Hopefully there will be a LOT of angry letters so we can get the episode back. It's hardly a great episode, and the parody of heavy handedness is so subtle that it almost looks played for straight, and it's a lot less flamboyant than certain episode of Captain Planet. The tongue is clearly in cheek with the melodrama in One Beer, but you kinda have to know they were being sarcastic to find any entertainment value in it.

    But then again, we're losing the episode "Why Can't Dizzy Read?" which means we'll miss Babs Bunny's random Bill Cosby impersonation.

    Personally, I'd rather they left out Playtime Toons. That was a very juvenile and almost diabetic episode. Mainly because Danny Cooksey apparently hated always playing a bad guy, so they wrote 2 episodes where he wasn't. One good (My Date with Elmyra), and this meh one. But it is fun to point out all the background references to TMNT toys...

    I don't believe that they're that great, especially with companies like Shout and even to some extent Mill Creek, but the fact they actually listened to the fans for a change makes them all right, I guess. Better than Disney's only 2 seasons of The Tick with episodes missing and syndication cuts.

    I remember that episode (assuming it's the one where Dizzy prefers to watch TV instead of read), but don't remember the banned episode (which we now know is included). Was it by chance included on The Plucky Duck Show (I doubt it, sinc eit's not about Plucky)?
  7. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    The entire episode is banned. If you're talking about One Beer, it's always somewhere on Youtube if you can't wait.

    Cracked actually mentioned it in this article
  8. minor muppetz Well-Known Member

    I was referring to "Why Dizzy Can't Read". Assuming the whole episode was banned after only one airing, I find it odd that I remember the Dizzy one but not the beer one.

    Actually, the episode was played at least twice. See that Teletoon logo on the bottom.
  10. muppetfan24/7 Well-Known Member

    Now that you mention that FrackleFan2012, I did recognize that logo at the bottom of the screen. Also, Bug Bunny's voice I believe was taken over by Joe Alaskey right after Mel Blanc was gone. Thank you for posting!
  11. FrackleFan2012 Well-Known Member

    Actually, Jeff Bergman provided the voice of Bugs Bunny in that episode.
    Joe Alaskey did Bugs in Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time. Tweety's High-Flying Adventure, Looney Tunes: Back in Action, Hare and Loathing in Las Vegas, Daffy Duck for President, Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal, and Looney Tunes: Cartoon Conductor.
    Billy West voiced Bugs in Space Jam and Bah Humduck! A Looney Tunes Christmas and Greg Burson did him in some episodes of Tiny Toons, and the theatrical shorts, Carrotblanca and From Hare to Eternity.
    Now, Jeff Bergman voices Bugs and Daffy in The Looney Tunes Show on Cartoon Network.
  12. muppetfan24/7 Well-Known Member

    Oh yeah! Sorry I posted the wrong voice actor of Bugs Bunny. Oops! Now I understand, but he is sort of close to Mel'sd Bugs and I am so glad he keeps in character I guess.
  13. FrackleFan2012 Well-Known Member

    I hope they don't exclude the Toons from the Crypt episode for the Tiny Toon Adventures Volume 4 DVD in the future.

    I don't think that's gonna be a problem. I'm sure they got letters in varying degrees of politeness to frustration about Elephant Issues, and wouldn't want to skip a banned episode again.

    Of course, I hope we get a volume 4.
  15. D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Why can't we have a little consistency with the voice actors?
  16. minor muppetz Well-Known Member

    Because as Mark Evanier once said on his blog, Warner Bros. doesn't want to have to pay too much for the same voice actor (since Mel Blanc kept asking for bigger raises throughout the last decade of his life), and also because no two WB executives can agree on who can best match Mel Blanc's voices.

    I'm surprised to see that Jeff Bergman is currently voicing Bugs and others on The Looney Tunes Show, since WB fired him for claiming to be "the next Mel Blanc" when he initially took over. I've seen speculation on the old Golden Age Cartoons forum that WB might have actually believed him and fired him before he could keep asking for bigger raises like Blanc did.

    Then again, June Foray has consistiently been Granny for many decades (even if she didn't voice Granny in "It's Nice to Have a Mouse Around the House" or "Corn on the Cop").
  17. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Not quite. June once stated she had to go back and audition for Granny in Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries, especially since they wanted a Bea Benaderet type voice, even though she wasn't used all that much. Eventually she did get the role, but she kinda had to put up a fight for it.
  18. minor muppetz Well-Known Member

    I read that that one was only banned by Fox. Nickelodeon aired it years later.

    I rcently read that The Tiny Toon Adventures Spring Break Special was only broadcast once. I didn't see that or the other hour-long special Night Ghoulry. I wonder if either of those will make it to DVD if we get another volume (if not in their own single-disc releases).
  19. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Here's something. Not a DVD release, but an actual AIR DATE!

    October 27th on Saturday Morning on the CW, they're going to rerun Tiny Toons: Night Ghoulery.

    I am NOT making this up.
  20. FrackleFan2012 Well-Known Member

    OH BOY!!! That's wonderful!!
    Thanks for the information!
