Tiny Toons Is Going Back To School With Looniversity Reboot

No release date has been set, but the '90s are coming back to HBO Max and Cartoon Network.


The latest show to come back for the reboot treatment is the popular '90s after-school cartoon Tiny Toon Adventures, which somehow despite feeling omnipresent at the time in fact only ran for 98 episodes across three seasons (which are now streaming on Hulu). In a release, HBO Max and Cartoon Network announce they have gotten a series order for two seasons of Tiny Toons Looniversity to revive that world and its cast of characters resembling younger versions of the countless popular Looney Tunes animals.

"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."

The series will take place in the titular university, "where young dreamers become professional toons." In this reboot, based on the release, it sounds like the younger versions and full-fledged versions of these characters will be interacting more directly, and more frequently.

Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, co-presidents of Amblin Television, the production company that was involved with the original and is returning here, said, "These smart, hilarious and cheeky characters have left an indelible impression on the childhoods of so many… 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."

No premiere date has been announced, and no casting information has yet been released. When the show debuts, new episodes will air on both Cartoon Network and HBO Max.

Hulu also recently released its first full trailer for its Animaniacs reboot, which will debut November 20. What year is this?
