Tiny Toon Adventures Wiki

Dizzy Devil is a cartoon character from the Warner Bros. animated television series, Tiny Toon Adventures. He is one of the most frequently recurring characters in the show. Dizzy was voiced by Maurice LaMarche.

About Dizzy

Dizzy is a young, purple male Tasmanian devil, who wears a yellow beanie with a propeller on top of it. Dizzy seems to have heterochromia, as his right eye is pink and his left eye is green. He attends Acme Looniversity and lives in Acme Acres. Dizzy's favorite teacher and mentor is Looney Tunes character, Taz. Though, unlike his Looney Tunes counterpart, Dizzy does not appear to have visible ears or a visible tail.

Dizzy lives alone in a cave on Mt. Acme. His parents (and any other possible relatives that he might have) are never seen or mentioned on the show.

Dizzy will eat anything and speaks in slobbering, monosyllabic outbursts. Dizzy often moves by spinning like a miniature tornado, usually demolishing anything in his path.

In the reboot, he wears the same type of headwear but it's in the form of a baseball cap with the peak facing backwards.


Dizzy is a rowdy, hyperactive ball of fur and teeth. Born permanently hungry, Dizzy is always on the lookout for something to eat, be it a box of pizza rolls (his favorite food) or one of his classmates from Acme Loo. To Dizzy, most of the other animals are potential food sources. Dizzy also enjoys listening to rock music and watching television.

Dizzy Devil is Acme Acres' resident party animal, always on the lookout for a happening gig to crash. The other toons know this and try to keep their parties a secret, but somehow Dizzy always finds out. Once there, he's the beast that won't leave, that one last annoying guest who's still blaring the stereo and dancing on the furniture long after the hosts have gone to bed. Dizzy loves having a good time, raising a racket and eating to excess. Turn-offs include Quiet Zones, watching calories, easy listening stations and wise-cracking rabbits who won't let Dizzy catch them.

According to the Ask Mr. Popular episode segment, Dapper Diz, Dizzy has three human girlfriends, who like him because of his wild personality. One of them; Mitzi, makes an appearance in Prom-ise Her Anything as Dizzy's date.

Dizzy tries to eat his way through anything, trees, buildings, mountains...you name it. He's a junk food junkie. Dizzy's long wet tongue is forever hanging out of his mouth. It's so long that it sometimes scrapes against the ground. When spinning, Dizzy sometimes gets tangled up in it.

A junior version of the Tasmanian Devil, Dizzy is the ID of a kid. He does everything bad that has ever crossed a kid's mind. But, while most kids have brakes, this guy does not. The Tasmanian Devil often offers Dizzy moronic and indecipherable tutorials at Acme Loo.

In the Ask Mr. Popular episode segment, Dapper Diz, Dizzy's classmates (Buster Bunny, Plucky Duck and Hamton J. Pig) attempt to civilize Dizzy in order to improve his existence and interests. It works, but Dizzy is unhappy (partially due to his girlfriends not recognizing him) and begs to become his old self again (a task Buster, Plucky and Hamton accomplish).

In the direct-to-video movie, How I Spent My Vacation, it is shown that Dizzy sheds all of his fur in the summer if he spins. He does so anyways due to Shirley's advice of "spin for the sheer joy of spinning," which causes him to go completely bald. Embarrassed at being "naked," Dizzy put a cardboard box over his body and unintentionally causes a new trend, which Mary Melody declares, "The box look is in."

Dizzy seems to be obsessed with food and eats many things (including things that are inedible like newspapers). In the "Love Disconnection" episode segment "The Amazing Three", Dizzy is the main attraction of a lunch-time game called "Will Dizzy Eat It?," which Buster states is "filled with fun, prizes and indigestion." In this game, Buster, Plucky and Hamton feed Dizzy the most unthinkable "foods" such as a land mine covered in guacamole, a stealth bomber, a jet-powered skateboard and an Acme Little Wonder Make-Up Kit (which Babs feeds to Dizzy by tossing it to him at Weenie Burger). When Dizzy spins through the kit, it dresses him up like a female and attracts a swarm of guys that dart towards him. This is ironic since Babs, Fifi and Shirley (who are actual females) failed to attract any guys when they used it before a Perfecto Prep senior dance (although Fifi does get chased around a table by an older male skunk).

In other episodes, Dizzy learns it isn't nice to step on insects, becomes Elmyra Duff's pet for an unfortunate period (she thought he was a dog), has a brief fling with a small tornado and is discovered by Buster and Babs Bunny to be illiterate (though most younger fans of the show would not know this, since the episode it is in was banned at the time).

In the reboot series, he seems much more intelligent.
