Warner Bros. Animation is finally giving Tiny Toons getting a reboot of their own and in this article, we will be discussing the 5 things that must return for the new series.
The second season coming off the 90’s Renaissance of Warner Bros. animation continues with one more pleasant surprise for its fans. With the Animaniacs revival all set to be released in the month of November of this year, the Tiny Toons, its predecessor, will be making a return for a two-season reboot to be aired on Cartoon Network and HBO Max under the title, Tiny Toons Looniversity.
This will be continuing the trend of 90s entertainment brands being rebooted, such as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and also, Saved By The Bell, as Millennials and Generation X continue to rise into higher positions in the entertainment industry.
Tiny Toons would bring new material just like Animaniacs is doing, likely with the current cultural references and the censor side-stepping that made both of the shows great. However, bringing back some original elements of the show certainly would not hurt the brand and will be providing that sense of nostalgia viewers might be expecting.
The characters will still be having their family traits, Buster and Babs will be maintaining two main facets of the original Bunny, Plucky is still going to be the egomaniac that is begging for a humbling, and Hamton is going to be the straight man and a clean freak without a speech impediment.
Five elements from the Tiny Toons Looniversity that must be brought back
- Wackyland – It is presumed that this is the same Wackyland that was originally featured in the year 1938 film Porky in Wackyland, to which Babs runs away in Episode 6 of the first season, titled “Her Wacky Highness,” rebelling against having to practice self-control.
- Parodies Of Warner Bros. And Satire Of Non-WB Properties – Tiny Toons and Animaniacs could even poke fun at the wackier and even denser versions of WB superhero shows, such as Teen Titans Go! or ThunderCats Roar!.
- Gag Credits – They have been a common trope in the comedies, and because the Tiny Toon Adventures was self-aware of the fact that they really were a show from the first day, it makes sense that they would break the fourth wall.
- Happy World Land – It was a long and arduous drive for Plucky and Hampton’s family as he tagged himself along on their road trip only to have gotten to experience a ride when they got to their destination.
- Elmyra Duff – Montana Max will still be having money, but it seems that Elmyra won’t be a pain because she is not returning. Cree Summer, voice actor for Elmyra, laments that Elmyra the cleverly subverted counterpart of Elmer Fudd will not be included in the reboot.
