Banjo Possum

Banjo Possum

Banjo Possum is a cartoon character from the Warner Bros. animated television series "Tiny Toon Adventures". He is one of the minor characters on the show. Banjo Possum is voiced by Rob Paulsen. Banjo is a young, gray and white opossum with blue overalls, a brown and red hat and a banjo. He attends Acme Looniversity and lives in the swamps and backwoods with his kin folk.

In the movie , Buster Bunny, Babs Bunny and Byron Basset travel down the river and end up in the backwoods where they meet Banjo (who is friendly to them), and his family (who wants to cook and eat them). After Babs is chased by Banjo's family while Buster plays numerous parts of his body in rhythmical tunes with Banjo who is playing on the banjo, the bunnies make a run for it and go back down the river. Later, Buster, Babs and Byron are in trouble by Mr. Hitcher, blood thirsty animals, and a pack of gators who all want to kill, eat or harm them in some way, but Banjo rescues them by pulling them up in a tree with his tail. With only Mr. Hitcher on their trail, they go on a chase that ends up with them back at Acme Looniversity and Mr. Hitcher falling far down into the river ( but only to come back later and terrorize Plucky at the school). Banjo attends Acme Looniversity from then on.

Banjo Possum has made other appearances in episodes that take place after the movie, usually playing his banjo and hanging out with the other tiny toons.

He has a good nature and gets along with everyone, despite growing up with a seemingly evil, carnivorous family, and is fairly simple minded, as he states before attending Acme Lonniversity, "I'm gonna get me some edumacation".
