"Taz" figure - 3 1/2" tall. -- The Tasmanian Devil, often referred to as Taz, is an animated cartoon character featured in the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes series of cartoons. The character appeared in only five shorts before Warner Bros. Cartoons closed down in 1964, but marketing and television appearances later propelled the character to new popularity in the 1990s. As the youngest of the Looney Tunes, the Tasmanian Devil, or 'Taz' as he has come to be known, is generally portrayed as a dim-witted omnivore with a notoriously short temper and little patience. He will eat anything and everything, with an appetite that seems to know no bounds. He is best known for his speech consisting mostly of grunts, growls and rasps, and his ability to spin and bite through just about anything. In 1991, Taz got his own show, Taz-Mania, which ran for three seasons, in which he was the protagonist.
Taz character created by Robert McKimson for Looney Tunes and first appeared in 1954. Character voiced by Mel Blanc from 1954-1989.
