cartoon characterfrom the Warner Bros. animated television series" Tiny Toon Adventures". He is one of the supporting characters on the show. Bookworm is a green wormwith large, oval-shaped, black rimmed glasses and a few black hairs on his head. He attends Acme Looniversityand lives in Acme Acres.
Bookworm is based on the bookworm companion of
Snifflesfrom the Merry Melodiesseries.
Bookworm is often found in the Acme Looniversity's library reading books and eating them up afterward. He is very knowledgeable and seems to also be handy at the computer. He is the smallest member of the regular tiny toons cast.
Bookworm is often chased by
Sweetie Pie, but usually outsmarts her or luckily gets away, sometimes using pages of books that come to life which he flees to and ends up working against the pink canary, leaving her stomach empty and back again to eating regular(non-intelligent)worms from within the dirt.
He never speaks, but sometimes he will spit words that came from the book he most recently ate, like in the episode segment 'Tennis The Menace' against a cheating
Montana Max. He's also helpful to Babs in her search for Honey in the episode 'Fields of Honey'.
In the episode segment from 'Spring In Acme Acres', titled 'Love Among The Toons', Cupid, who is tired of his job and wants a break, gives his job temporarily to
Concord Condor. Of course, Concord mismatches the couples, including setting Bookworm up with an elephant! Luckily, Cupid gets back in time before Concord can shoot the love arrows at them.
