The new series, titled Tiny Toons Looniversity, will see the reprisal of the original characters- Babs, Buster Bunny, Plucky Duck and more. The series, which will be distributed across two seasons, is produced by Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Television in association with Warner Bros. Animation.
The post from Looney Tunes on Wednesday read: “YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST!!!!! @hbomax and @cartoonnetwork are bringing back Tiny Toons with the new series Tiny Toons Looniversity!!! acme acres gonna be lit.”
Spielberg had produced the original series that aired from 1990 to 1992, spread across three seasons.
According to the official synopsis, the characters, following their ambitions, go to Acme University which is “the esteemed institution for higher hijinx learning, where young dreamers become professional toons”, and “form long-lasting friendships with one another and perfect their cartoony craft while studying under the greatest cartoon characters in history, the Loony Tunes“.
“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,” said Sam Register, president of Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter. “The continuation of our great creative partnership with Amblin Television will bring these characters back for fans of all ages to enjoy.”
