I've got a little riddle for you. What do you get when you mix two bunnies, a duck, and a pig?
~ Dr. Gene Splicer
I don't know.
~ Buster Bunny
Neither do I, but we're about to find out!
~ Dr. Gene Splicer

Dr. Gene Splicer is a minor antagonist on Tiny Toon Adventures. He is a villainous mad scientist who is slightly overweight, has black hair, wears a white lab coat, a blue shirt, a pink necktie, brown pants and brown shoes.

The Looney Beginning

Splicer first appears briefly in the Season 1 premiere, The Looney Beginning as one of the villains who escapes from the villains' box.

Hare Raising Night

Splicer would later go on to be the main antagonist of the Season 1 episode, Hare Raising Night. Once a certified bioengineer, he is now classified as a certified loony. He was kicked out of the Acme Hospital for his animal mutation experiments, but now spends his time at his secret hideout, continuing his animal mutations. Bugs Bunny sends Buster Bunny to stop him and rescue the animals, but in order to get his friends to come along, Buster tricks them by telling them they're going to the Emmy awards. Splicer captures Plucky (who throughout the episode remains oblivious) and attempts unsuccessfully to dissect him. Meanwhile, Melvin the Monster, one of his failed creations, chases Buster and Hamton and gains a crush on Babs. Splicer finds Melvin and recaptures him. After Buster and his friends rescue the animals, Babs suggests staying behind to rescue Melvin, much to the others' disapproval. Splicer captures Buster and his friends and attempts to dip them in his gene pool to combine them into one species, with Melvin brainwashed. As he leaves to get his camera, Babs uses Melvin's crush on her to get through to Melvin and rescue her and her friends. Splicer returns and tries to get Melvin back under his control, as Babs Bunny urges Melvin to resist him and help them. Torn between his new friend and his creator, Melvin turns against Splicer and knocks him into the gene pool, turning him into a rooster.

Appearances in Video Games


Splicer appears in Buster's Hidden Treasure for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive as the main antagonist (aside from Montana Max himself). In the game, he captures and brainwashes several of Buster's friends, who serve as the bosses of the game. To disable the mind control, Buster must jump on Splicer's Head several times, as the helmets are spiky and cannot be stepped on. Splicer also appears as a boss in Tiny Toon Adventures for the NES, and as a boss in Buster Busts Loose for the SNES, reprising his role in Hare Raising Night by brainwashing Melvin the Monster.


Dr. Gene Splicer's cameo in The Return of Batduck.

  • Although Dr. Gene Splicer is not specifically based on a pre-existing Looney Tunes character, some fans believe he is similar to Dr. Peter Lorre from the Bugs Bunny cartoon, Hair Raising Hare. A similar thing can be said about Melvin the Monster and Gossamer.
