MONTANA MAX Montana Max is a bullying, cowardly spoiled rich kid who throws world-class temper tantrums. Very bossy and abrasive. The kid you will hate forever. He has the money to do anything he damn well pleases. He's stupid and greedy, and easy to fleece by anyone with half a brain. His pastimes include counting his capital, landscape deforestation, and rabbit stomping. Monty enjoys cheating in all forms of competition, oppressing the weak, terrorizing the timid, masterminding hostile takeovers and watching the compound interest rate climb past twenty percent. Monty hates fair play, honesty and people who stand up to him. He delights in using his vast fortune to bring misery to others, particularly Buster and Babs. He'll spend any amount of money to spoil their fun, but most often winds up bankrupting himself in the process. Monty is the perfect foil for Buster. The sawed-off bully's temper is matched only by his greed, and Buster is always able to bilk some fast bucks out of Monty. Deep down, Monty is very insecure and sometimes fears no one likes him. He's right, of course, and occasionally feels the need to call "Acme Rend-a-Friend." Although he yells most of the time, sometimes we get glimpses of the real kid beneath the temper. He lives in the grandest mansion in Acme Acres. The grounds include swimming pools, tennis courts, stables and the like. It's the kind of place that would make Donald Trump envious. It has signs which read "Poverty Stinks," and "Charity Workers Will Be Shot." Monty's goal in life is to bring misery into the life of happy-go-lucky Buster. He's not particularly fond of anyone in Acme Acres, for that matter... He thinks Babs is a scatterbrain, and his only use for Plucky is as a pawn in one of his devious plots. He thinks Elmyra is a drippy little nerd, but will occassionally call her into service to help him pester Buster and Babs. Elmyra loves the attention, figuring her 'boyfriend' has come around and appreciates her at last.
QUOTABLES: "You can't do this to me! I'm rich!" "Make my day, rabbit!" "Ask me if I care!" AUDITION COPY MONTANA MAX: Nobody calls Montana Max a mal- adjusted munchkin and gets away with it! I'll buy up the ground under their feet and get them arrested for trespassing. (scheming) That's it! I'll use my allowance to buy all of Acme Acres. Nobody has more power than a landlord! (maniacal chuckle) (throwing a tantrum) Whattaya mean Acme Acres isn't for sale! I want it, I want it, I want it! Waaaaaaaaaaah!
