The Lyrics

Taz is one of my favorite Looney Tunes characters. He always seems so insane trying to eat everybody but what happens when he does...
Well, He was the Tasmanian Devil
Spun in a vortex
He wouldn't stop eating
Down his jaws everything slides till he swells
You'd be mauled by this crazed brown dude
He was abrasive when he chewed
His nonsense was spewed so... Wild
He... Would take down a forest with his massive teeeeeeeth

That's Taz
A fright
Once this freak went crazy
Watched him gnash and bite (Watched gnash and bite)
He was... The Tasmanian Devil

Well, He wasn't really all that bright
He formed cyclones with his breakneck speed
They... Should of feared his crazy eyes
That ol' poor Elmer Fudd's... Was served with some fava beans
Chomped Daffy like a donut
And... Tweety's next, Burps were feathery
Now pops Adderall, Sad he munched his bros
And behind bars he will screech

See Taz
Wrapped tight
That straitjacket's squeezing
Used to dash and dine (Used to dash and dine)
He was... The Tasmanian Devil

EDIT: The line "everything slides till he swells" should of been past tense as "everythinh slid till je swelled". Sorry.

Yeah, Taz deserves his own parody (dammit, why didn't I think of that first?), but not with this song. I can't reconcile the pace of "Girl" with "Devil".

The way Tom pronounces things it works out.

555, but I like the real animal far better than the cartoon version, except when Daffy beat him up over a dollar reward money slipping into his cage. The Devil can open its jaws 90o and can crush metal with its teeth. A pitbull's jaw pressure is nothing compated to a Devil. Too bad their population is being decimated with disease :-((

Very good spoof. I agree that the "girl/devil" switch is a bit of a stretch, but I'll allow it. I liked Taz, but I was more of a Daffy Duck guy...but Looney Toons all the way! I like the idea of Taz having to actually be responsible for his actions, funny stuff! Nicely done!

I remember his own series on Fox, never thought he'd be popular enough to warrant that.

(Artistry) Yeah, Taz is my all time favorite Tune (Roadrunner close second). I was so hyperactive as a kid, my mom actually called me Taz. Love this dude. This particular OS didn't give this crazy whirling dervish the space he truly deserves. I liked the concept of him showing remorse for actually eating everyone, but there wasn't enough lyric space to develop the idea fully. Overall, I liked it, if not just for my pure love for Taz.

(Artistry) I don't recall watching a lot of Taz cartoons (ironic given my Australian location) but this was a pretty good parody, pacing quibbles aside (and that's not including the title sub which is too far of a stretch for me). 555
