The Tiny Toons are growing up and heading to college in a new reboot series for HBO Max and Cartoon Network.

Tiny Toons Looniversity will feature the original characters once again shipping off to college to become professional toons under the tutelage of the Looney Tunes. The show will be produced by Erin Gibson, creator of the podcast Throwing Shade, and Adventure Time alum Nate Cash. As he did with the original 1990 version, Steven Spielberg will executive produce the show. According to the news release, HBO Max has already ordered two seasons of the animated comedy.

A new series by Genndy Tartakovsky, the mind behind shows like Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack, has also been greenlit for HBO Max and Cartoon Network. Unicorn: Warriors Eternal follows a team of legendary heroes who are reawakened as teens and have to figure out how to protect the world with limited powers and teenaged problems.

The time seems ripe for cartoon reboots and shows by classic creators, with Animaniacs getting a new Hulu-exclusive show.

No release window has been given for either of the new shows.
