Tasmanian Devil Cartoon Looney Tunes Tasmanian Devil

Taz the Tasmanian devil is a character in Warner Bros Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons.

Originally appearing in 1964 it gained much popularity in the 1990s. The character is depicted as a ferocious creature with a terrible short temper that grunts and growls and eats through everything.

Taz bears no physical resemblance to a true Tasmanian devil. The only similarities may be its appetite and some of the sounds it makes. The violent nature of this cartoon does little justice to the real endangered Australian native animal.
