ORIGINAL STORY (JAN 4, 2018): With rumors appearing May 2017, news has surfaced that a revival of the Kids’ WB and Fox Kids cartoon, Animaniacs, is being revived for two new seasons on Hulu. Featuring fan-favorites and the Warner brothers and sister themselves, Steven Spielberg will return to his once held position of the executive producer alongside Warner Bros. Animation and Amblin Television executives, as well.
The original series had a prolific run and received countless awards for its boundary-pushing yet whimsical comedy stylings. The success of the show extended so far that it even allowed for a myriad of recurring characters to transcend the troublesome threesome to secure their own cult following and spin-offs. The streaming giant hopes to recapture this same success with kids and nostalgic fans.
The reboot will be the first of original content developed for kids by Hulu, but won’t release till 2020. However, the deal has made the OG Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain and Tiny Toon Adventures completely available, so that should hold you till then.
