Dizzy Devil is a cartoon character from the Warner Bros. animated television series Tiny Toon Adventures.[2] He is one of the main characters on the show. Dizzy is voiced by Maurice LaMarche.[3] Dizzy is a young, purple male Tasmanian Devil with a yellow beanie that has a propeller on top of it. He attends Acme Looniversity and lives in Acme Acres.

Dizzy's favorite teacher and mentor is Looney Tunes character Taz.

Dizzy seems to have heterochromia, as his right eye is pink and his left eye is green. He will eat anything and speaks in slobbering, monosyllabic outbursts. Dizzy also often moves by spinning like a miniature tornado, often demolishing anything in his path.

According to one episode, Dizzy has three human girlfriends, who like him because of his wild personality. One of them makes an appearance in "Prom-ise Her Anything" as Dizzy's date. Additionally, Dizzy's spare time is often spent listening to rock music, eating (pizza rolls are his favorite), and watching television. Dizzy's classmates Buster Bunny, Plucky Duck, and Hamton J. Pig once attempted to civilize Dizzy in order to improve his existence and interests, and it worked---but Dizzy was unhappy (partially due to his girlfriends not recognizing him) and begged to become his old self again (a task Buster, Plucky and Hamton accomplished).

In other episodes, Dizzy learned it wasn't nice to step on insects, became Elmyra Duff's pet for an unfortunate period (she thought he was a dog), had a brief fling with a small tornado, and was discovered by Buster and Babs Bunny to be illiterate (though most younger fans of the show would not know this, since the episode it was in was banned.)

Although Dizzy is sometimes viewed as an annoyance or just a classmate to the other characters, there are times he is the antagonist, whether by influence from Taz or just being in a mean-spirited mood. There are other instances, though, where he gets along with everyone else, even being friends with them.

Dizzy's end tag credit is "Show over!", followed by Dizzy devouring the entire image on the screen.
