BUSTER AND BABS: A COMEDY TEAM
Buster and Babs Bunny (no relation!) are the stars of "Tiny Toon
Adventures." In each half hour, we share their lives in Acme
Acres, where they are the most visible and vocal denizens. Yes,
Plucky, Hamton, Monty, Elmyra, Fifi and Shirley often share the
spotlight with our hosts in some wild adventure or another, but
we generally find Buster and Babs at the center of the storm.
When Buster and Babs introduce themselves as Buster
Bunny and Babs Bunny, they say in unison: "No relation."
Like any good comedy team, Buster and Babs play off each other.
Babs is a wild, free spirit who gets her laughs by pulling out
all the stops. Buster cooly hangs back and gets the big laugh by
raising a knowing eyebrow or making a sly comment to the camera,
or by quietly, secretly upstaging his energetic costar.
Buster and Babs are best friends, and have been for a long time.
Someday they may get a romance going; but they're still a little
young for that now. Any amorous by-play between the two of them
is strictly for a laugh.
Although each of them is quite unpredictable, particularly when
together, Buster and Babs do have a number of running gags. When
Buster gets irritated with Babs he calls her Barbara Anne Bunny,
which she hates. The pair often appears as "The Vanderbunnies,"
rich preppies who have "just dropped in from the Hamptons." They
act bored and indifferent about everything. This bit always
works on Monty, who is convinced they're as rich as he is.
