tiny toons night ghoulery
Back in the early 1990s, one of the greatest afternoon cartoons to have ever existed was the Tiny Toon Adventures. Nowadays, many may recall the show Animaniacs over Tiny Toon Adventures, and for good reason. But Tiny Toon Adventures was just as great, doing the subversive comedy disguised as a children’s cartoon show. There were a small handful of seasons, plus a few specials that aired. One of which was the Tiny Toons’ Night Ghoulery special.

I have to admit that I was completely unaware of this thing’s existence until recently. It was originally supposed to air in October of 1994, but for whatever reason it was delayed until it was finally aired in late May of 1995. Which, for a Halloween special, makes complete sense.

Sarcasm aside, Night Ghoulery is a one-hour special that parodies several movies, stories and other television shows with the kind of whimsically twisted aplomb you would expect from these Acme Academy students.

For whatever reason, this has not been released on DVD as of yet. And a VHS copy is rare, and has been going for upwards of three figures on Ebay and Amazon. The individual segments can be found on YouTube, but here’s hoping someone at Warner Bros. will remember this was a thing and give this and other Tiny Toon episodes a proper DVD release treatment.
