DVD review: Tiny Toon Adventures- How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Last week was a crazy run of activities and birthday parties and playdates, and by Saturday morning, my kids and I were pretty much completely worn out.  We had more activities and parties later in the weekend, so we decided that Saturday morning was a good time to just hang out at home and rest.  Ethan wanted to watch a DVD, and since I'd just received Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Summer Vacation, I agreed and popped it in the player. Here's a bit about this new DVD (available August 21), from a press release that I received:

It’s summer vacation madness at its best with Babs and Buster Bunny, and all their pals from Acme Looniversity as they ditch the classroom for zany escapades and fun on Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation, available in stores August 21, 2012. Executive produced by Steven Spielberg, this full-length animated film is available on DVD for the first time from Warner Home Video (WHV) and will retail for $19.97 SRP.

No more pencils, no more books! It’s the last day of class at Acme Looniversity and the Tiny Toons gang is ready for some summer hi-jinks and fun. Babs and Buster Bunny’s water pistol fight gets a little out of control and turns into a wild and exciting white-water rafting trip. Plucky Duck and Hampton Pig share the most impossibly awful road trip imaginable on their way to HappyWorldLand. Elmyra Duff becomes irritable after losing her cat and wanders off on her own in a wild animal park in search of “cute little kitties to hug and squeeze.” In the meantime, Fifi Le Fume meets film actor Johnny Pew who turns out to be a “skunknophobic” nightmare. It’s a loony summer vacation our Tiny Toons pals won’t soon forget!
Ethan absolutely loved this DVD, and at several points was laughing so hard that I'm not sure he could breathe properly.  It's all very silly and fun and this DVD would be a great addition to any Tiny Toons fan's DVD library.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this DVD to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
