With Animaniacs set to return this month courtesy of HBO Max, Deadline is reporting that the streamer is set to bring back another of Warner Bros. Animation and Amblin Entertainment’s beloved animated series with a reboot of Tiny Toon Adventures entitled Tiny Toons Looniversity.
According to the trade, the new series will “follow the characters’ comedic ambitions all the way to Acme Looniversity, the esteemed institution of higher high-jinks 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.”
“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 of Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics. “Fans old and new will love to laugh at and with these characters all over again.”
“These smart, hilarious and cheeky characters have left an indelible impression on the childhoods of so many,” added Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank of Amblin Entertainment, who will executive produce alongside Steven Spielberg. “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.”
The original Tiny Toon Adventures ran for 3 seasons between 1990 and 1992 before production was halted in favour of Animaniacs. The reboot has been granted a two-season order by HBO Max, and is slated to premiere in 2021.
