Warner Bros. Animation just announced its teaming with Hulu and Amblin Television to create and premiere a brand-new version of the iconic family-friendly cartoon franchise Animaniacs.
Steven Spielberg returns as executive producer with Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series, and Amblin Television Co-Presidents Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank also serving as executive producers.
“Yakko, Wakko and Dot have been waiting impatiently inside the water tower, and now their hilarious brand of animated chaos will be unleashed — again! We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with Amblin and Hulu for new episodes of Animaniacs, filled with endless laughs — and ongoing plots for world domination by Pinky and the Brain,” said Register. “Parents who grew up with the cartoon now have new episodes to share with their own families.”
In addition to announcing the new series, Hulu and Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution also announced an agreement making Hulu the exclusive streaming home to the complete library of all 99 episodes of the original Animaniacs, as well as Pinky and the Brain, the subsequent Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain, and the complete Tiny Toon Adventures collection. Hulu subscribers can watch, catch up and relive their favorite moments from the original series with the whole family.
New episodes are set to premiere on Hulu in 2020, but for now, visit Hulu to get your Animaniacs fix. Maybe you, too, can have baloney in your slacks.
