The TINY TOONS were born in the 90s after the success of shows such as the Muppet Babies and the Flintstones Kids, which presented to the television audience "younger" versions of famous characters: the president of Warner Bros, Semel, therefore decided to give space to his grandchildren of the famous Looney Tunes. But with Steven Spielberg's entry into the project, the idea takes on its final form: the little protagonists definitely resemble their famous predecessors, but without any family ties.

The Tiny Tuns and Steven SpielbergThe TINY TOONS study at Acme University, where professors (played by classic characters) teach them all the tricks of the trade, with the aim of turning them into full-time cartoons. Almost all the young protagonists have "a counterpart" to the great Warner classics: Buster Bunny and Babs Bunny (Bugs Bunny), Plucky Duck (Duffy Duck), Furrball (Sylvester), Calamity Coyote (Wile E. Coyote), Little Beeper (Beep Beep) and so on. In other (rare) cases, the characters are inspired by movie stars. For example, Shirley the Loon is clearly a parody of actress Shirley MacLaine (and her New Age interest), while Pitbull Arnold is obviously based on ... Schwarzenegger.

The Tiny Toons movieIn the cartoon, there is no fixed protagonist, the authors wanted to give space to everyone, making it "choral". The show, in addition to introducing the popular Warner characters to a new generation of small viewers, also managed to attract the adult audience, conquered by the refined references to the American social situation and by the quotes of existing characters and personalities. Hollywood stars (Tom Cruise), movies (Dances with Wolves), and television series (Edge of Reality and Star Trek) are among the targets of Tiny Toons' sharp irony.
