TINY TOONS Will Return for a Reboot Series!

We all know the theme song. In fact, if you’re like me, it gets stuck in your head about once a month. Tiny Toon Adventures was a staple of ’90s childhood and for good reason. The hilarious cartoon followed a group of young cartoons attending Acme Looniversity to become the next generation of Looney Tunes characters. The Warner Bros. Animation and Amblin Entertainment series only ran for two years in its original run. Still, it left a huge impression on a generation of toon-lovers.

Now, the characters are returning for a reboot series titled Tiny Toons Looniversity. Steven Spielberg is back as an executive producer for the show, along with Sam Register—president of Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios—and Amblin Television co-presidents Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank. Erin Gibson will serve as showrunner and producer.

Here’s the official synopsis for Tiny Toons Looniversity:

Babs, Buster Bunny and the rest of the gang follow their comedic ambitions all the way to Acme Looniversity, the esteemed institution of higher hijinx learning, where young dreamers become professional toons.  Here they form long-lasting friendships with one another and perfect their cartoony craft while studying under the greatest cartoon characters in history, the Looney Tunes. 

The half-hour series was ordered for two seasons and will air on HBO Max and Cartoon Network. This follows recent announcement of an Animaniacs reboot, also produced by Spielberg but headed to Hulu.

“For many kids, Tiny Toons was their introduction to the world of Looney Tunes and, over time, Buster, Babs, Plucky and all the characters grew to be just as beloved by an entirely new generation,” said Register in a press release about Tiny Toons Looniversity. The continuation of our great creative partnership with Amblin Television will bring these characters back for fans of all ages to enjoy.”

That’s all we know about Tiny Toons Looniversity for now, but we’ll keep you posted as more news becomes available!
