Taz-Mania is an early 1990s cartoon show, produced and directed by Art Vitello broadcast in the United States and elsewhere around the world. It follows the adventures of the classic Looney Tunes character, Taz (Tasmanian Devil) living in the fictional land of Tazmania (based on the Australian island and province of Tasmania). Unlike similar cartoons of its time, it frequently broke the fourth wall, and often made jokes from the fact that Taz could actually speak perfectly normally when he wanted to.
In the show, he was a young slacker who was living with his family, working as a bell-hop at a local hotel, and having adventures with his friends.
The show had two intros. Because the first had a notable use of strobe effects, a toned down intro was created later due to concern over the intro causing epileptic seizures.
