Hulu orders Animaniacs reboot for 2 seasons

Back in May of last year it was announced that the 90s cartoon series Animaniacs would be getting a reboot, and now comes word that Hulu has decided to bring the show back for not one, but two seasons, teaming up with Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation for the new series.

Animaniacs debuted in 1993 and had a large ensemble cast in its collection of shorts. Aside from the three Warner siblings – Yakko, Wakko and Dot – other famous characters included the Goodfeathers, Slappy Squirrel and, most famous, the laboratory mice Pinky and the Brain. The latter characters became so popular they received two spin-off cartoons of their own as Brain attempted to conquer the world numerous times.

In addition to the two new seasons, Hulu has gained streaming rights to the original series. All 99 episodes of Animaniacs will be made available along with Pinky and the Brain, Pinky, Elmyra and

Steven Spielberg, Warner Bros To Revive ‘Animaniacs’ As Hulu’s First Original Series For Families

The 90s were filled with great animated series, but few of those shows, if any, surpassed Animaniacs. The variety show, which followed the misadventures of siblings Yakko, Wakko, and Dot, ran for five seasons between 1993 and 1998, and it since been fondly remembered for its energetic skits, its devilish nods to adult viewers, and its earworm of a theme song.

Now, Animaniacs is coming back. Its original producers -- Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment and Warner Bros -- have reunited for a rebooted version of the show that is slated to premiere on Hulu in 2020.

Hulu's deal with Amblin and Warner Bros is a straight-to-series agreement that will bring at least two new seasons of Animaniacs to subscribers. As part of the pact, Hulu has also become the exclusive streaming home for the original version of Animanics, which spanned 99 episodes.

Hulu to Premiere 2 New Seasons of ‘Animaniacs’; Steven Spielberg Returns as Executive Producer

I loved Animaniacs when I was a kid. The animated series, along with Tiny Toon Adventures, were surprisingly sharp despite being for kids with episodes and sketches parodying decidedly non-kid fare like Citizen Kane and Goodfellas, but still making it accessible and funny. That’s on top of some all-time great work like “Nations of the World”. For those unfamiliar with Animaniacs, it was a series of recurring sketches with the framing device being the Warners—Yakko, Wakko, and Dot—escaping from the Warner Bros. water tower and running amok. The episodes would also feature ongoing shorts like “…

TV Rewind: The 9 Shows That Defined 1990, From ‘Twin Peaks’ to ‘Wings’

The year 1990 was the beginning of a new decade that just had survived the neon excesses of the ’80s. This fresh start was seen in the world at large with the reunification of Germany, the unification of Yemen, the release of Nelson Mandela and the resignation of Margaret Thatcher as the U.K.’s prime minister.

It was also the fledgling days of the internet, when the first web server was created, providing a foundation for the World Wide Web as we know it.

Animaniacs Looking To Make A Return To Television

One of my favorite cartoons growing up has to be Animaniacs. My favorite thing about this show was the fact that it was broken up in segments and featured a bunch of different characters. Of course there was the Warner siblings Yakko, Wakko and Dot who always wreaked havoc at the Warner Bros. Studios. Often looked after by Thaddeus Plotz, the CEO of Warner Bros. and Dr. Scratchansniff, the psychiatrist who is trying to control the Warners and his assistant Hello Nurse. During the different segments of the show, we got to see great characters like the Goodfeathers an Italian American trio of pigeons. Or the great Pinky and the Brain who every night "try to take over the world" but (Spoiler Alert) fail every time. There are so many other characters that we can bring up for nostalgic purposes but that is not what this piece is about.

Animaniacs will be unleashed from its water tower, with a reboot series developed by Steven Spielberg, Amblin and Warner Bros...

Hellloooo, nurse: It’s time for “Animaniacs” – again!

Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation are kicking around a brand new version of the hit 1990s cartoon, IndieWire has learned. The potential reboot comes as “Animaniacs” has experienced a new surge in popularity since arriving on Netflix last year. Steven Spielberg, who developed the original as a follow-up to the success of his “Tiny Toon Adventures,” is expected to be on board in crafting the updated version.

There’s no home yet for “Animaniacs,” and insiders caution that it’s still in the early stages of development. But 1990s nostalgia is big business these days – witness the success of another Warner Bros. TV title, “Fuller House,” which is one of the most-watched originals on Netflix.

The Best and Worst Prequel TV Series — IndieWire Critics Survey

The Best and Worst Prequel TV Series — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What does it take to make a good prequel TV series? (And feel free to include an example of a show that got it right or wrong.)

Allison Keene (@KeeneTV), Collider

A prequel TV series is the most successful when it uses familiar touchstones but creates its own world. “Hannibal” is probably the best example of this, where there were characters we recognized but the setting, experience, and modern time period were completely Bryan Fuller’s (wonderfully so). “Bates Motel” has been another positive example, especially as it nears its end. The time period is again modernized, but it keeps a surreal and retro feel. And
