A fun journey

May not love 'Tiny Toon Adventures' quite as much as 'Animaniacs', 'Pinky and the Brain' and the best of Looney Tunes, but it is still a great show that's almost as good and one that has gotten better with each re-watched episode. One also that should be perfect for children and adults alike, but especially and primarily young adults with the great things better appreciated and even more noticed that makes things even better.

For me there are better 'Tiny Toon Adventures' episodes than "Journey to the Center of Acme Acres" (the title referencing Journey to the Center of the Earth'), and it is an ever so slight disappointment after such a consistent streak of great episodes and after "Her Wacky Highness". It's still very good though and like a lot of the show it fares better on re-watch due to understanding the humour more and being more familiar with the references, or at least what is being referenced, some of which went over my head admittedly as a child.

It may be just me and it may sound unfair, but from personal opinion Elmer sounded a bit odd. Am not trying to sound like somebody that can't accept change, that's usually far from the truth but often with me because of my Aspergers/autism it takes time to get used to it and can make me feel nervous. It is hard though when for so many Elmer was voiced in such a distinctive way that it was difficult to imagine somebody else other than Arthur Q. Bryan do it (well Mel Blanc did do it previously, but in my mind not as memorably). Greg Burson does more than serviceably but his speech impediment is not near as natural and he doesn't sound as befuddled or naive.

Had no issues with the writing, in distinctive 'Tiny Toon Adventures' fashion the wit is razor sharp and it is wonderfully wacky. Some inspired references and inside jokes here, again typically for the show, and are placed without being random or unnecessary. Will admit though it is another case of them being somewhat more adult oriented based on a perhaps not particularly younger audiences' story. Am in no way insulting younger audiences, as they will still laugh at the dialogue and love the character interaction. The story may be slight and it is not hard figuring the end out, but it is a thrilling one and goes at a lively pace. Helped by witty character interaction and a believable threat, Montana Max has grown on me but the gremlins (reminding me of the ones from 'Falling Hare') stick out more.

Really love the characters. The voice acting is on the most part terrific with the only reservation being Burson. The animation is crisp, with bright colourful backgrounds, beautiful colours and well drawn characters. The music is as good as the old Looney Tunes cartoons (prime-Looney Tunes, not most of the 60s ones) in being characterful and adding to the action, if not quite enhancing it in the same way. It always helps to have a memorable theme tune, and the one for 'Tiny Toon Adventures' is suitably hip and very catchy. Absolutely adore that "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Quake" song, some ingeniously funny lyrics there.

On the whole, very entertaining. 8/10
