His 2-year-old daughter, Stella, completely naked, jumps on an unmade motel bed, joy blooming across her face. You may have even posted a photo just like it of your own kid.

It's Music Day and the Tiny Toons introduce the episode segments about their musical adventures. In the first wraparound, they are playing at a proscenium theatre. Buster is playing the drums, Babs is playing the saxophone, Fifi is playing the harp, Banjo Possum is playing the Banjo, and Li'l Sneezer and Sweetie are playing the piano.

In the second act, Buster and Babs build a fort of sandbags as Sneezer tries to play his trumpet, sneezing in the process. In the third wraparound, Babs is outside the Acme Playhouse theatre, as she tells the viewers about various plays such as The Nutty Cracker , Monteo and Julieidiot , and her personal favorite, Loon Lake. The episode begins with Buster Bunny practicing his electric guitar. At the Acme Park, Ruffee is performing a concert for young children, but is suddenly interrupted by Buster's electric guitar.
