The Walt Disney Company, more commonly referred to as Disney, is an American diversified multinational mass media corporation headquartered in Walt Disney Studios, Burbank, California. It is one of WB's biggest competitors, and as such, many references to Disney in WB animated TV shows are used to make fun of it. However, the rivalry between the two studios is not necessarily a bitter one, as in the past, Looney Looney Looney Bugs Bunny Movie was occasionally shown on The Disney Channel, and reruns of Pinky and the Brain were shown on Disney XD for a while. Also, various WB and Disney characters have appeared alongside each other in various projects, such as the 1988 Disney/Spielberg film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, as well as the 1990 TV special, Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue.

Many references to the Walt Disney Company have been made in Tiny Toon Adventures throughout the show's run.
