The Banned "Tiny Toon" Adventure

I always hated Animaniacs and Tiny Toon Adventures. It felt like Spielberg and Co. tried a little too hard to capture the manic spirit of the old Looney Tunes. Everything about these cartoons - from the overbearing music, to the "wacky" animation and obvious jokes - was a pale imitation.

Today, we look at "One Beer" - an unbearably heavy-handed anti-drinking cartoon that was so bad Warner Bros. made it disappear after one TV airing. Bugs, Daffy and Porky (or the "tiny" versions thereof) get drunk from one beer, and end up crashing a stolen police car off a cliff.

Har har har de har har.

Most of the other Tiny Toons episodes were about as funny as this, so if you see this (and I doubt you'll stick around for the whole thing) - you've pretty much seen the box set.
