The characters (Tiny Toons) are based on the world-famous Looney Tunes by Warner Bros., such. B. Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. Bugs Bunny has with Babs and Buster Bunny (unrelated) even two Tiny Toons that suit him.
Unlike other series of the time, which deal with children characters of well-known series, such as the Muppet Babies, the Tiny Toons are not children versions of the originals, but independent figures that meet the adult Looney Tunes also in the episodes. These perform as teachers of ACME University, visiting the Tiny Toons in their home town of Acme Acres.
The series was produced from 1990 to 1992 and had three seasons with a total of 98 episodes and a feature-length video (Total Crazy Holidays). After the rights went to FOX in 1993, a 45-minute Halloween and Easter special was produced between 1994 and 1995.
