REVIEW OF EPISODE: A very short lived moment so not much to say here on this one. The thing I do like about Tiny Toons Adventures is that they often do the imagination thing, where most of the episodes are just fantasy situations of what characters would like to happen and then they do. The Plucky Duck episode was a perfect example of this. They just imagined it and he was suddenly a giant destroying things. This time we have Babs in the role and it was a nice episode but macro wise a very short lived moment. It really could have been a great situation as Babs makes for a very powerful and great character to be macro potentially. So if anything it was really a nice teaser of what could have been if we had more time.
Writing wise this was alright. It was a very short episode slapped in the middle of two other episodes so time was limited. That being the case the situations flew by as quickly as they started. Babs made the best of her imagination to get her through the various situations she had to deal with. The rocket adventure with her clothing on the floor then the pirate and dancing and Babszilla with her bath and then to the King Kong tease with her mom coming home through the door. The weird thing was there was many more things on the list then what she actually does. So either parts were cut out or there was just more put on there to make the whole situation seem longer then it turned out to be. Like I said it was alright writing wise but sometimes I just didn't get the whole randomness of it. One moment she is walking the plank of a pirate ship only to be dancing with sharks below in a not that thrilling moment. Then to her own admission she is bored with the whole situation. Well that made two of us I guess.
Babszilla was of course the best moments here. It was funny and amusing at points but also kinda silly with the whole Japanese speech and subtitles underneath her being required. I don't know just seemed kinda like over kill there for as far as jokes go. But that is common on Tiny Toons episodes with things being over done a little in attempts to make the kids watching it laugh. Even when I was a kid I never truly laughed at anything in a Tiny Toons episode but I always did find them well done enough to keep my attention. It was the same feeling here. Good eye candy with a gigantic Babs monster eating a random oil tanker as if it were a hot dog and this all due to her being bored.
Short lived moment that comes out of nowhere and ends just as quickly as a blink moment will on you. There was a potential for another moment when Babs goes into a King Kong spoof at the end with her playing the role of the one who the monster would take away after seeing her, but we never do see said monster so more of a big tease then anything if you were hoping for two for the price of one this time around. Personally I would have loved to see a whole short devoted to Babs as Babszilla as she looked cool and seemed to have fun with the size but being that this is all we got, its only worth it for the few moments that we get and doesn't lead to much more then what they meant it to be. I could have done without the water dancing and silly jokes mixed in, but if you ever wanted to see what would happen if Babs and Godzilla mutated this is a great time to see that. The monsters was drawn well and they really made her look ferocious all the while so its not the worst thing out there. There have been long full 20 minute macro episodes that were worse then this, but it isn't something to run to see either. Take it for what it's worth. Tiny Toons has had better but a lot worse too.
MEMORABLE QUOTES AND MOMENTS IN EPISODE:
(Babs is taking a bath and gets bored with her dancing fantasy and snaps out of it)
Babs Bunny: "I am industrial strength .. bored.. then again.."
(Takes a deep breath and goes under water in her bathtub)
Babs Bunny: "Underwater Atomic Bomb testing woke her from her million year sleep. It's the dreaded.."
(A gigantic Godzillaesque type Babs rises up from the ocean roaring loudly)
Babs Bunny: "...Babszilla!!!"
FINAL NOTES:*There were three shorts in total that were shown along with Bunny Daze. The title of the whole episode that had the three shorts in it is "Rainy Daze" and the theme was things to do during rainy days. The other shorts in the episode were "Rent-A-Friend" and "Fur-Gone Conclusion".
+ :Fun little short that shows how ones imagination can run wild and make for some fun moments. Babszilla is actually amusing and plays up on a lot of sight gags that most should find creative.
- :Very short lived moment that ends just as quickly as it starts. Would have been cool to see Tiki Taki rather then just a door being pushed at. Some of her day dreams are kinda silly rather then amusing.
