TV's zaniest toons are staging a comeback
After nearly two decades, Animaniacs is set to return with brand new episodes.
TV Guide has learned that the Animaniacs snagged a two-season straight-to-series revival order from Hulu. Steven Spielberg, who developed the series after the success of Tiny Toon Adventures, will return as an executive producer.
The show follows the zany Warner siblings Yakko, Wakko and Dot who finally escaped from the Warner Bros. water tower after being trapped there in the '30s. It originally ran from 1993-1995 on Fox Kids and from 1995-1998 on Kids' WB before ending with the direct-to-video release of the musical comedy Wakko's Wish in 1999. The series featured a number of popular segments including "Pinky and the Brain," which was then launched as a spin-off on the WB in 1995.
This latest iteration join's Hulu's stacked library of kids programming that includes Teen Titans Go!, Curious George, The Powerpuff Girls, Doozers, Adventure Time, Doc McStuffins, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and more.
The Animaniacs revival will beproduced by Amblin Television in association with Warner Bros. Animation, the same team behind its original run.
