Taz The Tasmanian Devil

Looney Tunes | Character

The Tasmanian Devil, commonly referred to as Taz, is an animated cartoon character featured in the Warner Bros. 'Looney Tunes' and "Merrie Melodies" series of cartoons. Taz is generally portrayed as a ferocious, albeit dim-witted, carnivore with a notoriously short temper and little patience. 

Although this bipedal Tasmanian Devil's appearance does not resemble its marsupial inspiration, it contains multilayered references to other "devils": he has horn-shaped tufts of fur on his head (similar to the Devil's appearance) and whirls about like a dust devil (similar in appearance to a tornado) which sounds like several motors whirring in unison. Taz is constantly ravenously hungry. His efforts to find more food (animate or inanimate) are always a central plot device of his cartoons.
