They’re tiny, they’re toony, and they’re heading to Tiny Toons Looniversity.
Warner Bros. has announced that it has greenlit two seasons of an all-new Tiny Toons Looniversity that will appear on both Cartoon Network and HBO Max. Steven Spielberg will return as executive producer, with Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios, and Amblin Television Co-Presidents Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank also serving as executive producers. Erin Gibson (Throwing Shade podcast) will serve as showrunner and co-executive producer. Nate Cash (Adventure Time) is also on board as co-executive producer.
“Tiny Toons Looniversity will capture all the clever, subversive and smart humor that made Tiny Toon Adventures such a standout series,” said Tom Ascheim, President, Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics (GKYAC). “Fans old and new will love to laugh at and with these characters all over again.”
Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios said: “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. The continuation of our great creative partnership with Amblin Television will bring these characters back for fans of all ages to enjoy.”
Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, Co-Presidents, Amblin Television said: “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.”
With the revival of Animaniacs about to launch on Hulu, it’s beginning to feel like the 1990s are alive and well when it comes to animation.
