Tiny Toon Adventures: Defenders of the Universe is a cancelled and unpublished 2002 fighting game. Based on the Tiny Toon Adventures franchise, it was initially scheduled for release in Spring 2002, but was eventually cancelled for unknown reasons. It was developed by Treasure and it was originally slated for the PlayStation 2. Nintendo Power has listed this game in its publication, suggesting that there was also going to be a Nintendo Gamecube version.

The plot Defenders of the Universe centers on Montana Max taking over the planet Gold Star. Natives of the planet, the Bullions, escape and asks Buster Bunny, Babs Bunny, Plucky Duck, and Hamton Pig for help.[1]

Development and cancellation

Originally titled Tiny Toon Adventures: Defenders of the Looniverse,[2] Defenders of the Universe was first announced in 2001 with a planned spring 2002 release.[3] It was later expected for release by the summer that same year.[4]

In 2004, Douglas C. Perry for IGN suggested that the game had always been intended for release, mentioning that it was "still officially slated to come out sometime (not necessarily in 2004)".[5]

Before its cancellation, the game was given an ESRB rating and was shown on retail listings.[5][6]


Kurt Kalata from Hardcore Gaming 101 theorized that the game was planned to be the spiritual successor to Treasure's 1999 Japanese-exclusive Rakugaki Showtime, noting its similarities in gameplay and mechanics.[6]
