HBO Max orders Tiny Toon Adventures revival series!
Cartoon Network and HBO Max are partnering up with Amblin Television to return to Acme Acres as the platforms have given a two-season straight-to-series revival Tiny Toon Adventures entitled Tiny Toons Looniversity!
The half-hour series, which is being showrun by Erin Gibson (Throwing Shade podcast), will see Babs, Buster Bunny and the rest of the gang following 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.
“Tiny Toons Looniversity will capture all the clever, subversive and smart humor that made Tiny Toon Adventures such a standout series,” Tom Ascheim, President of Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics (GKYAC), said in a statement. “Fans old and new will love to laugh at and with these characters all over again.”
In addition to showrunning, Gibson will co-executive produce the series alongside Nate Cash (Adventure Time), while Steven Spielberg will executive produce with President of Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios Sam Register and Amblin Television Co-Presidents Justin Falvey and Darrl Frank.
“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,” Register said in a statement. “The continuation of our great creative partnership with Amblin Television will bring these characters back fro fans of all ages to enjoy.”
“These smart, hilarious and cheeky characters have left an indelible impression on the childhoods of so many,” Frank and Falvey said in a statement. “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.”
