It's Buster Bunny Time
Starting from Scratch
Looking Out for the Little Guy is the tenth episode of Tiny Toon Adventures.
Buster rescues a family of bugs from getting squished by a truck, then welcomes the viewers and tells them that today's episode has three cartoons about looking out for the little guy. Babs then runs up to Buster and tells him that he is the little guy. A giant approaches them, and Babs says to Buster, "So, look out!" The two bunnies then run away from the giant.
A cat wrapped in bandages possibly Furrball sets a basket by the front door of Elmyra's house and rings the bell. The cat flees as Elmyra opens the door and notices an abandoned baby mouse, Li'l Sneezer, inside the basket with a sign next to him that states, Please Give Me a Home. Elmyra is excited to have a new baby mouse to take care of, and takes him to the kitchen to feed him. Sneezer asks for some cheese, but Elmyra decides to feed him pureed beets instead. As she is putting the beets in the blender to make some juice, Sneezer climbs up the open fridge to get some cheese. Elmyra, having finished making the juice, notices Sneezer climbing up the fridge and catches the falling food. Before he can eat the cheese, Sneezer sneezes, blowing the kitchen away. He says "Bless me, I must have a little cold".
After lunch, Elmyra decides to give Sneezer a bath, giving him a rubber ducky to play with. She leaves to go get a baby sponge, but Sneezer wants to play with the rubber ducky, who has strayed to the deep end of the bathtub. He slips on a bar of soap, which knocks over a bottle of Acme bubble bath, flooding the bathtub with bubbles. Elmyra returns, shocked to find Sneezer gone. She tries to rescue him but slips on the bar of soap. She is relieved to find him in a bubble, but he sneezes and sends her and the bath water down the stairs. Elmyra reads a bedtime story to Sneezer as she puts him down for a nap. She fluffs his pillow, and a single feather flies out and tickles his nose. He sneezes, this time destroying her house. Sneezer wakes up and wants to play with Elmyra, but she is unconscious.
The Re-Return of the Toxic Revenger
Plucky invites his neighbors over to his house for their annual swamp party. Meanwhile, Montana Max is having a swamp drainer installed for his pool, so he can drain the swamp and get free water for the pool. Plucky dives as his swamp is drained, so he dresses as the Toxic Revenger to find out where the swamp water is going. As the Toxic Revenger, Plucky returns the water to the swamp, but Monty, wise to his plan, steals the water back at full blast. He also catches the Toxic Revenger and demands Grovely to get rid of him.
To get revenge, Plucky invites his neighbors to Monty's pool. Outraged, Monty tries to drop an anvil on Plucky, but he tickles him with a party favor. Monty drops the anvil in the pool and is launched by the diving board. Plucky returns the water to his swamp, and takes the hose to the Acme rock quarry. When Monty tries to steal the water again, his pool is filled with rocks.
Byron Basset is asleep in Elmyra's house, but he is suddenly awakened by peeping baby birds. He barks at them to keep them quiet, and tries to go back to sleep, but the baby birds keep peeping, so Byron decides to put on earmuffs. Meanwhile, Furrball is hungry and tries to eat the baby birds, but Byron rescues them from him. The baby birds fall from their nest, so Byron decides to take care of them for the day.
The baby birds won't stop peeping because they're hungry. Byron feeds them one of his bones, but they dislike it. He remembers that birds like worms, but not wanting to get any, he resorts to cooking Acme spaghetti. After he feeds the baby birds, they start to cry. They need to be burped, and so he burps them. He puts the baby birds down for a nap so they won't disturb them, but Furrball returns and steals them. Byron rescues the baby birds and Furrball stays away, but he falls off the roof. The baby birds, who have just learned how to fly, rescue Byron and thank him for taking care of them.
