With excitement mounting for next month’s relaunch of Animaniacs on Hulu, it was only a matter of time before Amblin realized they had an equally large opportunity if they also rebooted Tiny Toons. So that’s what they did. Today it was announced that Babs, Buster, Ham, Plucky and the rest of the gang are going to college… well, they are going to Looniversity.
The new series was given a 2-season order for launch on HBO Max & Cartoon Network. Here’s what Tom Ascheim, President of Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics had to say:
“Tiny Toons Looniversity will capture all the clever, subversive and smart humor that made Tiny Toon Adventures such a standout series. Fans old and new will love to laugh at and with these characters all over again.”
Meanwhile, here’s the statement from Amblin Television’s co-presidents Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank:
“These smart, hilarious and cheeky characters have left an indelible impression on the childhoods of so many. We’re thrilled to be able to continue our relationship with Warner Bros. Animation, HBO Max and Cartoon Network to reimagine the Tiny Toons for new audiences, and we know that fans of the original series will be just as excited to share the show with their children as they will be to revisit a childhood favorite.”
