"Tiny Toon Adventures" Early Logo -- Part 3

Here's yet another previously-unpublished Tiny Toon Adventures logo, circa 1990.  This one was among the finalists before we settled on the rings logo.   I believe a variation of this piece was used in some preliminary promotional art.

  1. Ooh, this one is really cool. I really like that font, especially in tnat perspective. Buster and Babs look nice too. You have any idea who drew this one?

  4. The "rings logo" took precedent.

  5. So what would've happened? Buster and Babs would have sat on the fence at the end of the opening title and then said "And now our song is done"? A different Tiny Toon would sit on the fence at the end of each credits sequence?

    I'm surprised anything else was considered, given the traditional approach worked just fine.

  6. At this point, back in 1989 and 1990, there was no traditional approach, at least for Tiny Toons. The rings were an option from the start, but while producing the show before it ever went on the air, there was an ongoing internal debate of elements being "all new" versus elements being "homages." We ultimately went with a mix, certainly going in the direction of "homage" with the rings, but breaking new ground with many other aspects of the series, characters, cast and plots.

  7. Tom, as a fan of your work, I really enjoy your blog.

    I do have a question. A while ago, it was announced that you and Paul Rugg were writing for a new computer animated Pac-Man show. Are you still involved with the show? A picture of the show appeared on Cartoon Brew and it looks different like I expected ( I was hoping Mappy the police mouse would make an apperance).

    1. Paul and I developed the series and wrote the series bible, the half-hour pilot script and the subsequent half hour episode as well.
