Theme SongEdit

Welcome to a land that's way under Down Under,
The sky's always yellow in rain or shine.
Chorus: Down in Taz-Mania! Come to Taz-Mania!
When topsy meets turvy, they start to spin,
Like a Tasmanian Devil and his closest kin.
Chorus: Down in Taz-Mania! Come to Taz-Mania!
Mom's a live wire, Dad's a bump on a log.
Molly's all fired up, while Jake plays with the dog.
Chorus: Down in Taz-Mania! Come to Taz-Mania!
Digeri Dingo and Wendal T. Wolf.
Francis X. Bushlad is never uncouth.
Bushwhacker Bob and his mother called Mum.
Constance and Thickley just want to have fun.
Bull Gator and Axl are always left sore.
If you've got a deal, just call Buddy Boar
The Platypus Brothers are a-backing about.
The Keewee! The Bushrats! Have we left anyone out?! (everybody gasps)
... ... Oh, yeah, don't forget Taz...
Chorus: He put the Taz in Taz-Mania! Down in Taz-Mania! Come to Taz-Mania... WE MEAN YOU!
(Taz snarls and razzes at the viewer)

EpisodesEdit

Like Father, Like Son; Frights of PassageEdit

Chief: As Chief of all you fabulous Mudpeople, it feels double-plus good to usher my son, Francis X. Bushlad, into manhood on this, his 13th birthday. (Francis smiles) Now, in keeping with the Mudpeople's centuries-old tradition, Bushy here must choose one of three tasks to complete his passage into manhood. One, perfore a hostile takeover of a Fortune 500 company (my personal favorite). Two, Accumulate a portfolio of stock with a net yield of no less than 36 percent per annum. Or three... trap a Tasmanian Devil.
Francis: Oh, that's it! That's it! Number three! That's the one for me! Ahem, I, Francis X. Bushlad, shall venture forth, subdue the ferocious Tasmanian Devil, and drag him triumphantly back to camp... in time to catch Wall Street Week, of course. (everybody in the tribe laughs)
Chief: But Bushlad, no member of the Mudpeople have chosen number three in 150 years.
Francis: What Father is trying to say is, we're going soft! Bushlad will show the world that we're not just a bunch of bean-counters drooling over a profitable lawn-stand. Right, Bushdad?
Chief: Knock yourself out, kiddo.

Battling Bushrats; Devil in the Deep Blue SeaEdit

Taz: Taz hate water! (frequently-repeated line)
