Why Season 1 Volume 1? Explained...

"Why Season 1 Volume 1?
Season 1 was odd with a whopping 65 episodes. Most likely it will be broken up into "Season 1 Volume 1" and "Season 1 Volume 2" DVD releases although Volume 2 hasn't been announced yet.
Fans are hoping the following will also be released on DVD:
Season 2 had 13 episodes
Season 3 had 20 episodes (which included the 30 minute "It's a Wonderful Tiny Toon Christmas Special" as an episode)
There were two hour long specials:
"Tiny Toons Spring Break Special"
And a direct to video release:
"How I Spent My Vacation""
They're tiny, they're toony!

"I,ve waited for so long and it's finally here! The first volume of Tiny Toon Adventures on DVD! I remember Tiny Toon Adventures from my childhood back when I was a young lass. In case you are unfamiliar, Tiny Toons is about a second generation of young Toons who are kid-like versions of Looney Tunes. They attend a school called Acme Looneversity where the original Looney Tune characters are teachers. They teach Buster, Babs and the other Tiny Toons on how to become the 2nd generation of Toons and they earn a diploma of Lunacy when they graduate. If they're not at school, the young toons are out having adventures that are often parodies of popular movies, TV shows, comic books, etc. Tiny Toons like 80s and 90s cartoons and many other classics have true humor and absolutley none of the rotten toilet humor and idiocy that's in the horrible cartoons of today. Thanks to this and other DVDs, we can now have the classics with us forever. The humor in Tiny Toons is witty and often has parodies of popular TV shows and movies. This is one classic you may want to share with your family.
Tiny Toon Adventures began production when Warner Bros. reinstated its animation studio in 1980. It debuted in 1990 on Fox Kids and ended production in 1995. A major precedent was the success of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Tiny Toon Adventures is a witty show that often contained political and entertainment satire. Caricature versions of celebrities made frequent appearances, though were almost always voiced by imitators, and often appeared under parody names. Tiny Toon Adventures is a series that kids, teens and adults of all ages can enjoy.
This is defintely a recommendation for all DVD libraries.

"Picked up my copy today, and here's a rundown of my impressions of it.
The Bad: The packaging is terrible. Generic clipart drawn in that really kiddieafied style that was so common in the merchandizing back in the day
DVD Menus. Now, granted, the menus on the Animaniacs and P&TB sets were not fantastic, but they were not so hideous either. The TTA ones are just as simple as those, but instead of some nice new artwork, they are presented over a screencap from an episode.
Special Features: Well, there is only 1. The highlight of it is the introductory narration by Fowlmouth. Then, it gets into a pretty generic rehash of what was so great about the Looney Tunes. Spends about half its length on that without really saying all that much that we have not heard before. Granted, Bob Clampett's daughter had a lot to say, and she did basicly say that TTA was good, and sorta implied that her father would have liked it. (Take that, John K!) Then, it finally gets into how LT inspired various parts of TTA, but in a not very in depth way. There's some talk about how involved Steven Speilberg was, but again, nothing new about how it was said. And then, there was Tom Ruegger... I repeat my assessment that he's a modern day Leon Slessinger/Eddie Selzer. He may have some talent, but like his LT predecessors, he has NO CLUE about the show he produced. After going on at great length about how Looney Tunes were made for adults, he then goes on to say how they went out of their way to make Tiny Toons a show for little kids. Did he ever even *watch* his own show? Most annoying. Finally, there was NOTHING on the voice work. I hope there will be better features on subsequent sets.
Episode Order: Instead of arragining them in production order, which would put Hare Today Gone Tomorrow fist, they are arrainged in order of original airdate, meaning that The Looney Beginning is first. Along with this ordering are all the strange continuity errors that can be so confusing that viewing them in production order clears up nicely. (I wonder what this will mean for the Toons from the Crypt episode, which was never aired during the inital run, but only showd up when Nickelodeon got the show and aired them in production order.)
The Good: The episodes are unedited. This is a big one. For example, the extra costume when Buster is first drawn in The Looney Beginning and Sweetie's audition are right where they are supposed to be, instead of missing like they were for most of the shows syndicated run. There were even a couple of other very short clips in some of the epsiodes that I did not recognize, so it looks like we are getting an uncut set of episodes.
Now, don't get me wrong, the good far outweighs the bad. I am just dissapointed that this show, the one that really sparked the whole Silver Age of Animation at WB, and in my estimation, everplace else as well, deserved a better presentation than the one it got.
Hopefully some of these shortcomings will be corrected in subsequent sets.
But I tend to doubt it.

"Fantastic! Tiny Toon fans have been waiting for years to see this out on DVD.
For those not as familiar, Tiny Toon Adventures (TTA) was a weekday cartoon that came out in the early 1990s. It's animation and story lines were wonderful, contrasted with the majority of poorer quality animated shows of the time.
The "next generation" of Looney Tunes (not baby versions of the originals), TTA kept what made toons fun, while leaving most of the old overdone formulas behind. While enjoyable for kids, it also had a lot of jokes and references that made the show as much fun for adults as well. In fact most of the people I knew who watched TTA were young adults, including myself. But don't bother trying to convince the marketing people of that. Fortunately the writers and animators knew their audience.
I've seen some box art for this elsewhere, and have to say I think they could significantly improve it, if going to be more appealing to its fans. But don't let it dissuade you from checking the show out.
Overall one of my favorite cartoon series, and as much fun for us big kids as for the young ones. I'm looking forward to having it on DVD!
