Buster and Babs Bunny are back Tiny toons Crew in an overhaul produced by Steven Spielberg the filmmaker and WB animationThe original ’90s series for Max is out this fall.
io9 was in the audience for San Diego Comic Con 2023‘S Tiny Toons Looniversity Premiere screening and it felt like after school again. I can’t wait for a new generation to experience this meme-ready, hilarious slapstick fun. Especially the update of the title song, which Matthew Janszen has now made, hits the nostalgic note and pays tribute to Bruce Broughton’s icon Tiny Toons Adventure Opening. It’s a punchy and catchy song that just sticks in your head and sets it apart from the original series in itself.
Listen to it here, complete with new lyrics:
We got to watch two whole new episodes introducing the Tiny Toons cast we’ll be going back to school with. Babs (Ashleigh Hairston), Buster (Eric Bauza) plus Hamton (David Errigo Jr.), Plucky (David Errigo Jr. again) and Sweetie (Tessa Netting) attend Looniversity to learn what it takes to be like Bugs Bunny and the legendary Looney Tunes through silly lessons and messy adventures. The show also says welcome back Tiny toon adventures Former cast members Jeff Bergman, Bob Bergen, Candi Milo and Cree Summer reprise their roles as Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Dean Granny and Elmyra. Bergman also stars as the voice for Sylvester and Foghorn Leghorn, while Milo brings Hamamelis to life for a new era (her scenes in what we’ve seen here are incredibly delightful). Fred Tatasciore is also on the mic, voicing Taz and Yosemite Sam.
Both Tiny Toons Looniversity The episodes were really outstanding. My favorite was the movie that revolves around Hamton having an identity crisis because he’s deferred going to med school or staying with his friends – who are virtually invincible due to Toon DNA and don’t require medical attention until a villain intervenes with an inverting potion that ends up in the Looniversity’s water source. The genius of this wacky premise is executed in a shockingly gentle way, but it’s also hilarious. I assure you no toon has been harmed too much. I can’t wait to see more episodes!
Tiny Toons Looniversity debuts on Cartoon Network and Max this fall.
