"Don't let anything bad happen to Buster!"
"Please take care of him! I beg you! Otherwise Tiny Toons will be cancelled and I'll have to work on some chipmunk show!"
"Harvey, you're gonna have to go down to Acme Acres. Buster Bunny's thinking of quitting Tiny Toons."
"There he is, Buster Bunny."
"Say, nice neck. He doesn't look like a quitter."
"All the Shmagoos down in Shmagooville..."
A parody of Sam the Snowman...
...who gets angry at Buster and Babs when they sled past him
Monty shows up late for the special's rehearsals.
Elmyra tries to get Monty under the mistletoe.
Buster cuts Monty from the Christmas special because of his broken leg.
"Don't mind me... ruining it!"
"Plucky the Red-beaked Reinduck!"
"Hey, hi, I'm the ghost of Christmas Past. I tell you, I've seen so many past Christmases, I gave camel-riding lessons to the three wise men."
"This'll spice up your act, Ebenezer Sneezer!"
Monty sabotages Sneezer and Bob Hope's Christmas Carol sketch.
"Ta-da! Plucky the Lonely Fruitcake Nobody Wanted For Christmas!"
"I do not look like James Dean. Could you put my collar up higher and put more grease in my hair?"
Monty convinces Babs that Buster is flirting with Cher...
...and cuts a hole in the ice, leading to a tank of piranhas.
Cher about to fall into the hole
"Hey! I love this! Eat your heart out, Bob Mackie!"
"You're on, Little Drummer Duck."
Monty sabotages the microphones with sticks of dynamite
"Come, they told the duck, parum-pa-pum-pum."
Everyone gets mad at Buster.
"Montana Max is now in charge of the Tiny Toons Prime-time Holiday Spectacular!"
Feeling he's let everyone down, Buster leaves.
"Oh, no! It's worse than I thought! Buster's about to throw himself out of the picture!"
Harvey grants Buster his wish of never being born.
Buster's contract is disintegrated.
Without Buster, Acme Acres is now Montyville.
Harvey reads a newspaper that says, ENCINO MAN WINS BEST PIC OSCAR
"I'm Tiny, I'm Toony, I'm just a little looney, and every afternooney, I'm invading your T.V."
"I work with him, I'm lucky."
"For Tiny Toons, I won the Best Performance By a Duck Emmy!"
"Well, I'm Plucky Duck, and I'm a zany mega star,"
"There's lots of other Tiny Toons, but who cares who they are?"
"He's Plucky the Mallard, he's funnier than Kaye Ballard, it's Tiny Toon Adventures, come and join the fun."
"And now my song is done... YEAH!"
In the Montyville reality, Plucky is the star of Tiny Toon Adventures and Babs is his helpless patsy.
"Stop, you can't drop an anvil on Babs! What are you, goofy?"
"Sneezer! You've got to know me!"
"Name's Sleazer! Hit the road!"
"I feel like I'm in a bad episode of Quantum Leap."
Without Buster, Acme Looniversity is Montana Max's Business Looniversity.

"Just wear your underwear on the outside and Warners will give you a multi-million dollar deal."
Buster is horrified upon seeing what has become of Wild Comedy Takes class
"YOU WERE NEVER ON TINY TOONS! YOU NEVER EXISTED, AND EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT NOW!"
Buster, who has caught on now, asks what Babs is like without him.
Babs watches Looney Tunes cartoons, including Porky's Christmas present to Petunia...
...and Pepe and Penelope's New Year's Eve party.
Buster and Babs meet for the first time... in this alternate universe, at least.
"You're crazy! Plucky is the star!"
Buster begs Harvey to bring him back to the world he knows.
Harvey grants a joyous Buster his wish for everything to be back to normal.
"Happy Hanukkah, you magnificent mogul, you!"
"Feliz Navidad, you pretty planet, you!"
Nobody likes the rewrites Monty has made to the special.
"I don't want to play Leona Helmsley!"
Everyone cheers when Buster returns
Even after all the trouble he put him through, Buster decides to put Monty in his special after all, as the star!
Buster's Christmas gift to Babs; a kiss!
"The greatest gift of all, my dear; The gift of charity."
"I'm just here for comic relief."
"If you deck the halls, an anvil falls."
"If the holiday feast gets eaten by the dog,"
"And you raise a toast to yuletide, but the egg won't nog,"
"If it's New Year's Eve and you're too muscle-bound to dance,"
"And all you got for Christmas is socks and underpants,"
"Boy, I tell you,"
Buster and Babs as Charlie Brown and Lucy Van Pelt
Buster and his friends in the sleigh, performing the closing song
This isn't exactly what Monty had in mind when Buster told him he'd be the star...
"And if you ever feel like a loser again, Buster Bunny, remember..."
"Eh, not bad, for amateurs."
