Taz-Mania (タズマニア) is a 1992 platform game developed by Recreational Brainware and released by Sega in 1992 for the Sega Mega Drive. It is based on the cartoon series with the same name, and stars Taz the Tazmanian Devil on the search for seabird eggs. It is unrelated to the Super Nintendo and Game Boy games with the same name, aside from the Taz-Mania license.

Taz-Mania was a fairly popular game, and received favorable reviews when it was released for being one of the first games to look like a Warner Bros. cartoon (previous attempts had been held back by hardware restraints). The game was followed by Taz in Escape from Mars.

Ironically, although the game was made by Sega of America and released in most countries in time for the Christmas season in 1992, it was first released in Europe in the summer of that year.
