Frights of Passage is an episode of Taz-Mania directed by Keith Baxter. It first aired on September 14, 1991.

Title

The title is a play on "rites of passage" when, in many cultures, boys must participate in certain ordeals or ceremonies to symbolize their passage from boyhood to manhood.

Plot

On his thirteenth birthday, a boy named Francis X. Bushlad must capture a Tasmanian Devil, if he wants to prove his spot in his tribe. Francis tries to shoot Taz with a bow and arrow, but instead gets flung backwards himself. A poisoned blowdart also backfires, as does digging a pit to trap him. When he paints a deer on a large rock, Taz attacks it and knocks himself out. Taz comes to as Francis is dragging him back to the village. Taz spies the back of Francis' head and, in a classic Looney Tunes gag, envisions it as a chicken drumstick. After a lengthy chase scene, Francis escapes the Tasmanian tornado. He later drives up to Taz in a tank made of bamboo, but when he fires the whole contraption explodes sending Francis up into the air, and down into Taz's mouth. Inexplicably, Taz then tornadoes up to the Bushlad residence and knocks on the door. When father answers, Francis pries open Taz's jaws from the inside, pops his head out and announces his return.

Characters

This episode marks the first appearance of Francis X. Bushlad.
