  • Byron Basset
rdfs:comment
  • Byron is a brown, black and white male basset hound. He lives in Acme Acres. Although a direct connection is never made, Byron resembles Sam Sheepdog and The Barnyard Dawg (and possibly Willoughby the Dog). According to creator Tom Ruegger, Byron was also based on his family dog, a basset hound named Lucy who was actually protecting some baby birds from a cat, similar to the Looking Out For The Little Guy episode segment, Bird-Dog Afternoon.
  • Byron Basset is a fictional basset hound from the Warner Bros. animated television series Tiny Toon Adventures. Byron was voiced by Frank Welker. Although it is never stated, Byron resembles Sam Sheepdog and Barnyard Dog from Looney Tunes. Despite generally shown to be lazy, he expresses many talents when properly motivated by something. Byron is mostly depicted as being a lazy mongrelown for his somewhat malleable nature. In order to turn around, he pulls his head and tail inside the folds of his body, and out the other side.

  • Byron Basset is a fictional basset hound from the Warner Bros. animated television series Tiny Toon Adventures. Byron was voiced by Frank Welker. Although it is never stated, Byron resembles Sam Sheepdog and Barnyard Dog from Looney Tunes. Despite generally shown to be lazy, he expresses many talents when properly motivated by something. Byron is mostly depicted as being a lazy mongrelown for his somewhat malleable nature. In order to turn around, he pulls his head and tail inside the folds of his body, and out the other side. Byron is a pet of Elmyra Duff. His relationship towards her was not nice, due to the fact that she didn't treat him as he wanted to be, including hard hugs and scorching hot baths. When faced with an opportunity to get away from her however, he remembered that she loved him and took him in, and decided to stay with her. Byron's biggest role was perhaps in the direct-to-video movie Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation. There, he accidentally ends up joining Buster and Babs Bunny in their subplot of getting caught up in a river after a water gun fight. Near the end of the film, when Byron sees that the bunnies are surrounded by enemies, he flies down (his malleable body flattening out and acting as a hang glider) and carries to shore. Byron doesn't really talk, other than the occasional "woof" and on some occasions "ruff". In one episode, Byron was inside in Montana Max's vault where Max was hiding from Buster Bunny who was collecting money for the newspaper that Max subscribes to. Byron's only line was "Excuse me, is this your vault?". In reality it turned out to be Buster wearing a mask.

Byron is a pet of Elmyra Duff and lives in her home, usually along with Furrball. His relationship towards Elmyra is sometimes antagonistic, due to her well-meaning mistreatment, including painfully tight hugs and scalding hot baths. Byron doesn't speak at all, but sometimes lets out a listless "woof" or "ruff," as well as other dog-like sounds. In the Life in the 1990's episode segment, Paper Trained, Byron appeared in Montana Max's vault where Max was hiding from Buster Bunny who was collecting money for his newspaper subscription. Byron's only line is "Pardon me, is this your vault?," but it is revealed to be Buster in disguise.
