You see I can't understand why it was banned, seems like something parents would want their kids to watch. Learn about the dangers of Alcohol from a popular cartoon.

For me, "Elephant Issues" is a middle of the road ep, all except for "One Beer" which I consider to be one of TTA's absolute highlights. "One Beer" is one of the very few TTA cartoons that my friends and I still legitimately laugh at, no matter how many times we've seen it. I think a lot of this has to do with just how snarky and sarcastic "One Beer" is from beginning to end. It's like the writers and animaters were poking fun at all the other PSAs they were forced to do. There's a lot of unforgettable moments in this one, from the belch musical to the insane car ride as well as some of the very best devilered comical dialogue in the history of the show.

HAMTON: yo-you mean like, steal a car? risk going to jail?..................sounds like fun!

BUSTER: so Plucky, how does it feel to be DWI?
PLUCKY: DWI what'sh that?
BUSTER: DWI, driving while intoxicated!
PLUCKY: ah that's ridiculous...I don't know how to drive.

I especially lose it when Plucky says "hmmm...that's not a very good sign." I also love the part where Babs, Shirley and Fifi all react to their boyfriend's drunken behavier with disgust, followed by Buster delivering yet another hilarious line.

I forgot to mention how great the animation is on this one. As far as character model and facial expressions go, this is Buster, Plucky and Hamton at their pinnacle. Rarely has Tiny Toons ever looked even remotely this good. Anyway, this is just my opinion. By the way, I have heard several times that the biggest reason "One Beer" got axed is actually because the channel executives or whoever, felt that the TTA studio was having too much fun depicting them as drunks and hardly spending any time if at all, telling kids why they shouldn't drink. Oh yeah, The closing lines in "One Beer" are funny as well.

Elephant Issues was created because of executive meddling. The executives wanted the show to be more educational, so to get them off their backs without having to do it again they made the episode so heavy handed that it would come off as sarcastic and would never be asked to do it again. It worked.
