Set in the fictional town of Acme Acres, the series follows the adventures of a group of young cartoon characters who attend Acme Looniversity to become the next generation of characters from Looney Tunes.

Barbara Anne "Babs" Bunny is a pink female rabbit. She will do nearly anything for a laugh. She is good at improvisational comedy, and is a comedic impressionist in the vein of Robin Williams. Babs has impersonated or parodied many different actors and fictional characters, including Joan Rivers, Jessica Rabbit, Mae West, Elmer Fudd, Groucho Marx, Wonder Woman and Madonna. Her friends become annoyed with her accurate but unflattering impersonations of them and they retaliate by impersonating her in turn. Like Buster, Babs is usually willing to go out of her way for her friends, such as when she sabotages a troupe of swan ballet dancers who are trying to thwart Shirley's debut. She often does quick costume changes, usually achieved by spinning quickly in a circle. Babs also can speak in a deep, sultry voice, often used to seduce Buster. She distinctly hates being called "Barbara Anne," preferring just "Babs."
Her mother, was heard but only shown from the waist down. She has a father (also seen only from the waist down), who appeared in one episode as a monstrously large fellow who intimidated Buster when he dated Babs. However, where he drops Babs and her friends off at a party, Babs' father is portrayed differently as a goofy and clueless man who appears way out of touch with his daughter. Although Babs has been seen with dozens of brothers and sisters, only one has ever been named: Mortimer.
Unlike Buster, Babs has far less patience for Plucky and often takes any chance to clobber or humiliate the duck when he steps out of line. Babs searched for a female mentor, as nearly all prominent classic Looney Tunes characters are male. She eventually found one: Honey, a forgotten character from the old Bosko cartoons. Her catchphrase is like "I just can't help myself" which is endemic to her frequent inability to exercise self-control, ultimately leading to trouble for herself, Buster, and/or anybody else around her.
Her friends are Fifi La Fume and Shirley McLoon, along with Acme Looniversity's trio of cheerleaders for most of "The Acme Bowl" (until all three abruptly join the football team).
