Tiny Toons Looniversity Review – IGN

Tiny Toons Looniversity Premieres Soon!

Tiny Toons Looniversity premieres September 8 on Max and September 9 on Cartoon Network.

When Tiny Toon Adventures debuted in 1990, it was heavily influenced by the classic Looney Tunes shorts. The characters of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig were even included in the show. Tiny Toons was a surprising success, featuring new characters like Babs and Buster Bunny, Plucky Duck, and Hamton J. Pig.

The new series, Tiny Toons Looniversity, is a reboot that brings back the cute and slapstick style of the original show. While the Looney Tunes characters are not as culturally relevant as they once were, the influence of Tiny Toons can still be seen in modern animated shows like Teen Titans Go. The new series takes place in a college setting, offering a fresh take on the characters and their adventures.

The new series features some changes to the characters. Buster and Babs Bunny are now twin siblings, adding a familial bond to their relationship. Sweetie Bird has a more chaotic personality and takes on a prominent role within the group. There are also deep-cut references to Warner Bros. animation throughout the series, appealing to hardcore fans.

While the animation style of Tiny Toons Looniversity is more consistent compared to the original show, some fans may find it a bit thin-looking. The series maintains the classic elements of physical comedy and quick-hit sight gags that made the original show enjoyable.

However, the new series also emphasizes the mechanics of cartoon storytelling, with characters discussing their gags and injuries as part of their education. This meta-joke approach can be clever at times, but it may become tiresome for some viewers.
