Prom-ise Her Anything is the 17th episode of Tiny Toon Adventures. It was written by Paul Dini and Bob Carrou and directed by Ken Boyer.
Gogo Dodo appears out the clock tower to tell everyone that Acme Looniversity is having a prom. Buster avoids asking Babs out, not because he doesn't want to dance with her, but because he doesn't know how to dance. Hamton tells Babs that sometimes boys get shy when asking a girl they like to the prom, and he asks Fifi if she feels the same way. Fifi calls the idea of a prom outdated phooey. Hamton walks away sad, saying he wanted to ask Fifi as his date. Fifi enthusiastically accepts, wrapping her tail around Hamton and kissing him on the head as thanks. Babs decides to wait in her burrow for Buster to call her. Meanwhile, Buster tries to learn some dance moves from the Bugs Bunny cartoon "Hot Cross Bunny". Bugs wants to talk to Buster about his dance moves, but Buster rushes off to ask Babs to the prom. Back at Babs' burrow, Babs is impatiently waiting for Buster. Harriet, her unseen friend calls her, and Babs tells her that Buster still hasn't called. Buster arrives at Babs' burrow and apologizes for keeping her waiting. He gives her a pink rose and Li'l Sneezer is his saxophone player. Babs is happy that Buster finally asked her.
Mary Melody is a reporter for Looniversity TV, reporting the prom. Montana Max refuses to go to the prom, but Elmyra hugs him tighty and doesn't let go. To escape her grasp, Monty promises to take Elmyra to the prom. Elmyra gets excited, unaware that it was a lie. Monty escapes in a chicken farmer's truck. After Mary finishes reporting, a commercial for Crazy Tazzie's House of Tuxes airs. Buster arrives at Babs' burrow and takes Babs to the prom. At the prom, Babs meets up with Shirley and Fifi, who all go to the powder room to apply their makeup, which is done by the animators' paintbrushes. Elmyra is there, still unaware that Monty has stood her up. She waits and begins to lose hope. Meanwhile, Buster meets Dizzy Devil, and tells him that no single guys are allowed at the prom without a date. Dizzy tells Buster that he has a date and shows him his date, Mitzi, a beautiful young human lady who leaves Plucky and Hamton in a trance. Buster asks Babs what's wrong with Elmyra. Babs tells him Monty stood her up and left for Rio, and Buster agrees that this time, Monty's gone too far.
Buster realizes even Elmyra deserves to have fun on her prom night, and he and Babs travel to Rio to bring Monty home to the prom. At first, Monty refuses to keep his promise or stay at the prom, but he becomes instantly attracted to Mitzi. Buster and Babs put Elmyra in her place and she dances with Monty. Monty hates dancing with Elmyra, and when she asks what's the matter, he tells her that she's the matter and that he doesn't like her, literally breaking her apart. Monty then snatches Mitzi from Dizzy and tries to dance with her, but she rejects him, using almost the exact same words he says to Elmyra. Having been rejected by Mitzi, Monty apologizes to Elmyra and tells her she's not all that bad. He agrees to dance with her as long as nobody was watching them. Bugs arrives to congratulate Buster for bringing Monty and Elmyra together, and he tries to tell Buster about the dance moves he learned, but Babs immediately starts dancing with him. Everyone is shocked to find out Buster can't really dance, but Bugs, pretending Buster has started a new dance craze, joins in, making Buster the highlight of the prom, as everyone joins in as well. A relieved Buster asks how he can repay Bugs, and Bugs tells him to swipe one of Daffy's routines next time.
- When Montana Max lustfully reacts to Mitzi, his head briefly morphs into a howling cartoonish wolf. This is a reference to the 1943 Tex Avery cartoon "Red Hot Riding Hood" by MGM. This gag was later performed in the 1994 Jim Carrey film The Mask.
- This episode takes place after the events of the "Test Stressed" segment "To Bleep or Not to Bleep", as Fowlmouth is dateless.
- Fifi wears clothes; though at her beginning scene, she wears only her ribbon, she wears a dress to the prom.
- This is the first and only time Harriet, Babs' phone girlfriend, speaks aloud.
- Gogo's square dance song is similar to the one Bugs Bunny sings in "Hillbilly Hare".
- Although he doesn't speak, Calamity Coyote has a main role as a member of the prom committee.
