This is now one of my favorite Tiny Toon episodes, where Buster and Babs meet Foxy and Roxy. This episode really helped drive home my love for the black and white 1930s cartoon characters, which Yakko, Wakko and Dot started for me. It's really interesting seeing the two-tones alongside the "hues", and I think that "Two-Tone Town" could almost be its own show, maybe with Foxy and Roxy and Goopy Geer, which they kind of hinted at at the end when they took Tiny Toons' timeslot. :lol: I really like the black and white end credits, too. Thoughts on this episode?

So that's what's outside of Acme Acres? A black and white town.

You just can't beat those 1930s cartoons! You just can't!

I think in the Animaniacs Vol 3 interview Tom Ruegger said that Foxy and Roxy were part of the inspiration to change the Warners from ducks to black and white toons.

This episode, along with Fields of Honey are my favorite episodes of the series, and never fail to make me cry like a baby.

This episode in particular felt like the perfect send off from Tiny Toons onto Animaniacs, even if Animaniacs was a few years off.

There was one particular line in that episode that was interesting. If I remember correctly, somebody said Animaniacs had been a concept by 1991, and by 1992 they had planned almost everything for the series, which makes this line pretty amusing by a historic standpoint.

"You two-tones are hysterical! You're even better than Tiny Toons!"

I hope someday they do a movie that's nothing but black and white animation and characters. It'd be a great way to honor cartoons. :D

That'd be a great idea! Sadly, I doubt WB would do it, since they think that black and white is inherently uncool.
