Arnold the Pit Bull is a cartoon character from the Warner Bros. animated television series Tiny Toon Adventures. He is one of the supporting characters on the show. Arnold is voiced by Rob Paulsen. Arnold is a white male pit bull with a pair of black shades. He lives in Acme Acres.
Arnold is one of the few characters on "Tiny Toons" not directly modeled after another existing Warner Brothers character. Arnold was named after Arnold Schwarzenegger and speaks like him as well, whom was at the height of his popularity as an actor at the time.
Arnold is very large and muscular. He is a bodybuilder who likes working out and admiring his huge muscles. He actually owns his own gym which is called 'Arnold's Pump You Up Gym, We Pump You Up And Spit You Out'. Buster Bunny went there once when he mistakenly thought Babs Bunny wanted him to be huge and buff like Arnold,as depicted in the billboard he thought she was looking at(she was actually looking at the one underneath that showed a hunk of carrot cake).He was forced to do hard labor at Arnold's command, but Bugs Bunny talked some sense into Buster and he outsmarted the pit bull bully(leading a furious Arnold into a steam room then turning up the heat full blast, causing Arnold to shrink many times his size into a miniature version of himself).
He sometimes appears as an authority figure such as a lifeguard or a security guard(even at times for Montana Max). Usually in these episodes he appears as an antagonist to Buster, Babs and the other tiny toons. Other times he seems to get along well with everyone else, usually seen with the others such as traveling with them on spring break to Ft. Lauderdale and going to their prom with his date, Arnolda (a female version of Arnold).
Arnold sometimes says phrases like 'Hear me now, and see me next week'.
Outside the series, Arnold also appears as a boss in the video games Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster Busts Loose, Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure, and Tiny Toon Adventures: Babs' Big Break.
