Buster Busts Loose & Hidden Treasure - “Play a Toon on the SNES!” - Buster Bunny TF
So, FYI, this affected many, many people. This ad has touched the lives of many, like Drake (how do I credit you?) who joined me on the search for this ad. Zai, EdixonKi, and a few more have all reached this out to me. I think I saw KitsuneKit (Hi!) and others post about it at Metamorphose.
Really glad I can present this news on behalf of Travalisfox and all of us. Thanks for the submission, Travalisfox!
The kid, promoting the two games, cuts to a scene where his mouth and voice is replaced with Buster’s mouth & buck teeth, only to have his mouth revert and his arms spaghetti outwardly and gently pinch/prod him during his suggestion about the ‘cartoony feel.’
Next, after scenes of the gameplay, he reappears with big bunny haunches and Buster’s tail, running in place before his legs take his suggestion to “make a real mad dash” and drag him off screen.
More gameplay. Blue eartips come up followed by Buster’s ears being attached to the boy’s face. Wiggling in response to ‘sounding great’. The next scenes talk about the Genesis game, where the kid gets dollar-sign eyeballs popping out of his eyes, due to the game’s treasure—again with Buster speaking and animated over his lips.
Finally, by the end, The kid’s body, but with Buster’s face and arms, stretch themselves out and grab the games off-screen. Suggesting you get the games. As the kid approaches the screen, his arms shorten as Buster’s, until his face begins reverting. (That’s not all, folks.)
As he tells the camera to get its own games, he walks away, no trace of Buster’s influence, until his shirt pops away to reveal a tail coming out.
Revolutionary when it came to live action TF ads, if you ask me. Maybe like the Fruit Rollups ads I desire of the time.
Not as great as my memories, but they do have a lot of catching up to do.
None; no HQs.

Thank you, Video Detective. <3 And could you believe I was last looking two weeks ago, Travalis? These are exciting times, my friends. I hope other leads show up!
And everybody who is here when really important ads are found by everyone’s persistence, not just mine. (Thanks for helping me!) ;u;
