Classic Toons Stay Tuned with HBO Max Extension

HBO Max announced today that a slew of Hanna-Barbera titles and Looney Tunes series will no longer be departing the service on April 30. Animation fans already have a lot to look forward to this month, as Infinity Train: Book Four and a fresh batch of Looney Tunes Cartoons are set to debut on the platform. And for big kids, the arrival of R-rated fighting game flick Mortal Kombat at no additional charge to subscribers!

For young viewers, HBO Max recently launched a new feature that allows users to customize their profile images, either by uploading a photo of their own or by choosing an avatar from a selection of more than 120 iconic characters from shows like Looney Tunes, Sesame Street, Tom & Jerry, Adventure Time, Craig of the Creek, Teen Titans Go!, Scooby Doo, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away and more. The child will only see age-appropriate avatar options based on their parental control settings. (Learn more about at
