As Animaniacs gets set to return to our screens next month, now comes word on another old favourite that’s to be revisited.

In a joint statement, it’s been announced that Cartoon Network, HBO Max, and Amblin Television are bringing Tiny Toons Adventures back in the form of a new series titled Tiny Toons Looniversity.

Erin Gibson of the Throwing Shade podcast is being tasked with serving as showrunner on this series, with Tiny Toons Looniversity to be a half-hour series following the beloved gang of Buster Bunny, Babs Bunny, Plucky Duck, Hamton J. Pig et al as they enrol at Acme Looniversity in the hope of graduating as professional toons.

On this news, Warner Bros.’ Tom Ascheim enthused, “Tiny Toons Looniversity will capture all the clever, subversive and smart humour that made Tiny Toon Adventures such a standout series. Fans old and new will love to laugh at, and with, these characters all over again.”

With backing from executive producer Steven Spielberg, Tiny Toons Adventures was created by the prolific Tom Ruegger and first aired in 1990. Going on to run for a total of 98 episodes across three seasons, the show became a huge favourite of many and was a staple of kids TV during those years.

Expect more on Tiny Toons Looniversity as we get it. In the meantime, be sure to keep an eye out for that Animaniacs revival with it premieres on Hulu on November 20.
