Wackyland, the bizarre world that Gogo-Dodo comes from, wasn't created for this show; it actually first appeared in a little known Looney Tunes short named _Porky in Wackyland_ (1938), which also featured a dodo that looked and acted exactly like Gogo Dodo from this series.
The nonsensical word "narf" which was made famous by Pinky on _"Anamaniacs" (1993)_ made its first appearance in the secret message in the credits of the episode "You Asked for It". The message: "Guy Who Says "Narf" - Eddie Fitzgerald"
The character of Ralph the Warner Bros. studio security guard later appeared as a regular character on another Warner Bros. animated series, Animaniacs.
Fifi Le Fume's perfume of choice is Le Stink.
In the episode "Never Too Late To Loon", Acme Acres is found to be located in Arkansas.
This was the first animated series produced by Steven Spielberg and Warner Brothers Animation.
Voice Director Andrea Romano auditioned over 1,200 actors for the series.
Writer Paul Dini said the original idea for Tiny Toons came from then Warner Brothers President Terry Semel, who said he wanted to inject new life into the animation department.
Tiny Toons was originally planned to be a feature length film for theatrical release, but was later changed to a TV series.
Danny Cooksey, who voiced Montana Max, was the only cast member at the time, who was not an adult.
Tiny Toons won the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program three straight years from 1991-1993.
One episode was co-written by 3 then-teenage girls, who just happened to be fans of the series.
Each episode contained 25,000 animation cels, which was more than double the industry standard at the time of 10,000. This allowed the characters to move more fluidly.
The two aliens, Frank and Ollie, are named for veteran Disney animators Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston.
During the "Duck Out of Luck" segment, the jet fighters are shown firing the following: A kitchen sink, a television, a trashcan, a boot, a can of soda, a toilet, a Superman shield, a boxing glove, a Smurf from The Smurfs, George Jetson and Mr. Spacely from The Jetsons, and Shaggy from Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!.
The opening scene, with Buster and Babs being force-fed by Elmyra, was originally created for the episode "The Looney Beginning" but was cut for time. Since this episode was running short, that scene was added to fill the time, and different dialog was used.
In an in-joke for fans of the Roches, Terre and Suzzie are surprised when Maggie begins yelling at Hamton. This is because, in their live performances, Maggie hardly ever speaks, leaving the stage chatter to Terre and Suzzie.
This is the only episode of the series where Steven Spielberg voices himself. The other appearances of Steven Spielberg are voiced by famed vocal actor Frank Welker, impersonating Spielberg's mannerisms.
The script for the show was largely written by three young girls in 8th grade. They submitted their script to Amblin Entertainment, and their script was then turned into the show's episode. Caricatures of the three girls appear in the show, but their actual voices are not used.
This episode was a failed pilot for a spinoff tentatively called "Elmyra's Family". This explains the strange tone and absence of other characters.
This was Steven Spielberg's favorite episode.
This episode was not aired during the series' original run. The Fox network censors rejected the "Night of the Living Pets" segment, and so the episode was withheld from broadcast. The segment "Wait Till Your Father Gets Even" was aired on The Plucky Duck Show, and "Night of the Living Pets" was featured on the "Fiendishly Funny Adventures" VHS compilation released in February 1994. The episode was first broadcast in full on Australia's Nine Network on 17 October 1994; it did not air in the United States until Nickelodeon began airing the series in the fall of 1995.
This episode was regarded by fans as a sneak peek at Animaniacs, whose protagonists somewhat resemble the 1930s WB characters featured in this short. However, it was produced at a time when Animaniacs was still in the conceptual stages, and doesn't have much in common with the finished product otherwise.
The "Acme International" logo is a parody of the American International Pictures logo from the mid-1950s, complete with fanfare.
Some of the more self-serving lyrics in Plucky's version of the "Tiny Toons" theme were used when he got his own show, The Plucky Duck Show.
