There were so many funny moments in this episode. Like when Plucky got crushed with an anvil while holding a sign that said, "WILL TAKE FALLING ANVILS FOR LAUGHS" and when Babs hit that guy in the head with his violin. Also, we got to see Babs got to fulfill her dream of becoming a TV actress. What are your thoughts on 13 Something?

Heh. SO many things could have gone wrong. Plucky could have advised Buster that "he doesn't need a co-host", or he might have made Plucky his co-host, as himself, not a rabbit, so we'd have another rabbit-duck pair like Bugs and Daffy, and then Babs would have no reason to return since her "position" had been eliminated.

In which case, Shirley would have been downgraded to be a bit player, since Plucky would already have a comedy partner.

It's a great episode. Yeah, it's sappy & predictable at times but it's great. sad that a toon has to be on a live action show for any real notoriety (& let's face it, it's true...no oscar for best picture, no emmy for best comedy, etc).

I still laugh at Elmyra for the cross walk gag. "don't walk" so she stops walking & BOOM!

It's sort of a more adult episode where they're purely teens (I mean Babs' design proves that!) & not kids like they are in other cartoons. But then that goes with the subject matter. It's a nice (occasional) break from the zaniness of some cartoons.

I think I heard somewhere that this was Spielberg's favorite episode, and it's definitely at near or at the top of my own list, but it's been a while since I've seen it. Babs goes off to prove herself, and Buster has to adjust to life without her. I agree that it was a nice change of pace from the usual wackyness, and I thought it did have some good emotion and tension to it. It was fun to see all the replacements try out for the part of co-host. I want to know where Plucky got those cute bunny slippers he used in his tryout. Warner Brothers should sell those, along with the ears. :)

Would TTA have gone "normally" without Babs, and by extension, Shirley?

Maybe. They DID have a lot characters that didn't have much air time, they might have done more after that.... :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I don't think so. The show needed Babs.

They could have stalled for a while with minor characters, I don't think it would have worked. For me, Tiny Toons was Babs & Plucky. Nothing else, not even Buster. If I ran off the school bus & found a Hampton episode airing I switched the channel to Darkwing. In the end, that ended up happening a lot & due to that & other factors (no VCR at first) I still haven't seen all the episodes (*sob*). It just doesn't work as well without them.

Yeah, it was also funny when Babs said, "Ooh, that's gonna linger." :lol:

I tried to watch everything. If an episode came on that I'd seen before, I'd change the channel to see what else was on just in case something else was new. I'm not sure which shows I actually preferred back then, though. I know I usually watched Animaniacs, but by that time there wasn't much else that I was even interested in.

Buster and Babs, and especially Babs, were what made Tiny Toons for me. But I still would have liked to see the secondary characters promoted a little more, as long as they tried to expand their characters. Too often they were limited to tired plots that showed little creativity, which made the characters boring. If they'd had more variety, like the stuff that Buster and Babs got, then I might have liked them a lot more.

When she got the part on Thirteensomething, they asked her was her name was, and she instinctively almost said, "Babs Bunny", but caught herself mid-sentence and tried to come up with a different name, and it came out as Babs Bunnawalskioversmith. ;)

The Humans in their world must be pretty dumb not to notice she was a rabbit. One of the gags was that they kept telling her she needed to get a facial wax, because she had a lot of facial hair. But I think being covered in fur goes a bit beyond what you'd call "facial hair". They should have also noticed her tooth. You'd think in Hollywood that an overbite like that would disqualify most people from a starring role. Of course, you're not really supposed to think of things like that. ;)

Even though that Tiny Toons is a show for small children, this particular episode seems like something teens and adults would enjoy as well.

That episode is so romantic, touching and funny. I love the way Plucky and Buster imitates Babs' impersonation of Jessica Rabbit. "I always get what I want, it's a talent I have".
I laughed when Plucky flirted with Shirley: "My parents are gone for the weekend, wanna play house"?, "Hey Shirl, giving you any idea"?.

It was so sweet when Buster made all his way to New York in order to tell Babs that she is his other half, I melted when they kissed at the end of the episode. ♥♥♥
