|Concord Condor is a cartoon character from the Warner Bros. animated television series Tiny Toon Adventures. He appears occasionally in the show. Concord was voiced by Rob Paulsen.|
Concord is a young, purple male condor. He attends Acme Looniversity and lives in Acme Acres. Concord is based on the Looney Tunes character, Beaky Buzzard. Beaky only appears once in "Tiny Toons" in the episode "High Toon" (an episode that Concord does not appear in).
Concord has a haircut similar to Three Stooges member, Moe Howard, and in the episode "Weekday Afternoon Live" (parodying Saturday Night Live), one of the skits states that he might be Howard's grandson, but this is obviously a joke. Additionally, in a wraparound in the episode "New Class Day", at Acme Looniversity heading to the classroom Classic Comedy Team Workshop, Concord, wearing brown shoes and a neck tie, is performing as Moe; along with Fowlmouth, sporting a bald cap and top half of a suit, as Curly Howard; and Furrball, dressed in a bow tie, brown dress shoes and a wig, as Larry Fine (making a trio of The Three Stooges). Concord has his usual hair-style, but it's dyed black like Moe's hair, instead of his normal purple.
Concord Condor usually behaves in a dimwitted manner and is also rather bashful. He has a voice similar to that of Mortimer Snerd and a gullible demeanor. Concord is usually shown to be oblivious to danger, and in situations where other toons would scream for their lives and flee from the dangerous threat, the carefree condor simply goes about his normal business. He has a good heart and a positive attitude, but sometimes goofs things up, such as mismatching the other Tiny Toons when he is temporarily cupid or "running out of fuel" and plummeting to the ground with Buster, Babs, Plucky and Hamton, as he is flying them to Wales. Although, Concord does fly them all the way to Wales from Acme Acres by himself before running out of energy and also saving them right before they hit the ground with what he calls, "Air Brakes."
In the Wake Up Call of the Wild episode segment, It's a Jungle Out There, he is shown living at Acme Zoo, where he spends most of his time relaxing in his nest and watching TV. He decides that he wants to go to the "wide open spaces" due to watching a special about wild condors, so he departs the zoo and even tells Arnold the Pit Bull (who is the zookeeper) bye on his way out. Arnold is too distracted by his favorite television show, "Dialing for Poodles," and placing a phone call to the show that he allows Concord to leave. Despite being able to fly, Concord takes a taxi to the Acme Forest (which also runs him over on the way there and back when picking him up). Concord enjoys the wild, as Arnold angrily comes to the forest (destroying everything in his path) hunting for him. Through a series of mishaps, including falling off a cliff and being mauled by a bear that Concord encountered earlier, Arnold is driven "bonkers" by the end of the episode, where both he and Concord return to the zoo (Concord actually returns to his cage on his own free will because he was hungry).
In the Spring in Acme Acres episode segment, Love Among the Toons, Cupid (who looks and sounds suspiciously like Elmer Fudd) desperately needs a vacation and a "sucker" to take his place. Suddenly, Concord nearly crashes into him from the sky by accident, as Cupid decides to con the gullible condor into doing his job for him. Concord takes over the job with enthusiasm and begins scouting the area, noticing Buster arguing with Babs. When he tries to fix the problem, the first arrow succeeds in hitting Babs, but the second arrow that was meant for Buster hits Montana Max, who gets in the way because he is in a grumpy mood. As a result, Monty and Babs fall in love with each other. Concord makes other weird and often disastrous couples, such as Elmyra romantically (and sadistically) pursuing after Hamton and Little Beeper chasing down Calamity. God summons Cupid (who is gambling at the Las Vegas Star Casino) and shows him the mismatched couples, demanding that Cupid fix things. Meanwhile, as Concord tries to pair Bookworm with an elephant, an angered Cupid arrives and takes his arrows (and job) back to fix what Concord started, including getting Babs and Monty back to their normal (and not so loving) feelings for each other.
In the Mr. Popular's Rules of Cool episode segment of the same name, Concord tries to walk into Cool Club, but Arnold, who is the bouncer and deciding who is "cool" enough to get in, takes Concord aside and demands that he show him that he is "cool." Concord does a silly, "uncool" dance and Arnold tosses him far away from the club. Later, he is at the Mr. Popular show with other toons trying to learn to be "cool." He, as well as many others, begin to dance when Hamton starts scratching records by accident and makes "cool" sounds. Concord and other toons carry Hamton up in the air out of the club for being "cool." In the end, Concord is having fun with the latest dance moves inside of Cool Club.
In the Toons From the Crypt episode segment, Concord the Kindly Condor, it is revealed that Concord has three mean (and much bigger!) older brothers who want to demoralize his good behavior. Concord assists the sick and hurt animals of the forest, nursing them back to health and getting them out of dangerous situations, but his brothers would rather him (and themselves) eat the sick and helpless, as they try to force him to do so with disastrous results (upon themselves!). It also shows Concord living with his brothers high up on a mountain inside a cave somewhere in the ACME Mountains (instead of at Acme Zoo). Concord has a slightly different haircut in this episode and even the gag credit at the end pokes fun at this.
- One factor that contributes to Concord Condor's character is his speech; often repeating, "Nope nope nope nope..." or "Yup yup yup yup..."
- "Aw, shucks. Tweren't nothing."
- "Deeuuuhh...Hiya, sport!"
- Concord's three nasty brothers from Toons From the Crypt are similar to The Ghostly Trio from Casper the Friendly Ghost, as well as Orson Pig's older brothers (Gort, Wart and Mort) from Garfield and Friends.
