Geek Life – Cartoon Reviews – The Steven Spielberg Cartoons 1 of 4 – Tiny Toons Adventures

So for a long time I wanted to do themed cartoon review marathons, so here I am finally starting with some of my favorite cartoons of all time created by the one and only Steven Spielberg and Warner Bros. Starting with the first cartoon to grace the airwaves we have Tiny Toon Adventures. With the absence of new Looney Tunes and Spielberg’s interest in animation the concept for Tiny Toons came about and it was brilliant. Have the last Looney Tunes crew start a school and train the next generation of cartoon characters. Babs and Buster Bunny (no relation) along with Plucky Duck, Montana Max, Elmira Fudd, along with many others have started their education in their quest to become the next big Looney Toon. While the school is a big part of the show, it is the Tiny Toon character’s every day lives in their home town Acme Acres that makes the show.

This show introduced to the world the Spielberg cartoon humor (with a touch of classic animation humor), its all over the place, wacky, and colorful. What else could I ask for in a cartoon? Especially for a spiritual successor to the immortal Looney Tunes. The characters are true to their counterparts with a child like essence and as always Spielberg stayed very true to what makes a project work and how to create a fun and enjoyable experience. This cartoon started a generation of great cartoons I am looking forward to talking about, but the show also made many people’s childhood. This is an amazing accomplishment to keep the Looney Tunes name alive to a new generation without the need of a famous basketball player and his shoes. Every episode was a lesson learned in the characters live in how to overcome personal problems or how to be the best Looney Toon possible. All I can say in a nutshell is if you love the Looney Toons this show won’t replace the original, but it will remind you how great the classic animations were with a touch of Spielberg magic. Image Along with an amazingly catchy theme song this show as well as all of Spielberg’s cartoons made an amazing fusion of classic style animations and modern style animations. You will be laughing every episode and invest into a very charming series. Its cast of characters and possibilities made every episode fresh and entertaining and that’s something Spielberg was able to create in all of his cartoons. This show recognized that in a world of animations absolutely anything’s possible and that sticking to a certain logic doesn’t always have to be the case. This show captured my favorite part of cartoons, that they have the ability to stretch reality at will to make a point and express emotion with endless possibilities. That’s what I feel people loved about this show, it took the Looney Toons as an amazing and faithful source material to start a legacy that is Spielberg cartoons. So next time we meet I will continue the Spielberg Cartoon reviews with one of my favorite cartoons of all time, The Animaniacs.
