New Animaniacs Episodes Coming to Hulu with Spielberg Returning

If you grew up in the 1990s, then there’s no question that you are familiar with (and more likely than not) a huge fan of the “Animaniacs.” This animated kids’ show, which starred three cartoon siblings (who may actually be cats, or dogs — possibly a combo of both, but who really knows?) is on its way to Hulu. Not only is the show coming back, but you can see all new episodes and the big news that Steven Spielberg is reprising his role as the executive producer for the entire series.

While you won’t be seeing any new episodes until 2020, most would agree, it is definitely worth the wait to see Animaniacs again. If you need a refresher on what happened in the original show, you will be happy to learn that all original 99 episodes (which were originally released in 1993) are streaming on Hulu, right now for you to watch.

What’s So Special about the Original “Animaniacs?”

First of all, if you have to ask this question, you obviously didn’t grow up in the best era for television cartoons ever — the 1990s. But, for those who are unfamiliar with the show or concept, you can get a quick recap here. The original show is a type of anthology show, which was mainly focused on the siblings, Dot, Wakko and Yakko, who had escaped from their prison that was located inside the Warner Bros. water tower. Once they were out, they began running around and interacting with all the other Warner actors, movie characters, and on at least one occasion that can be remembered, Satan.

While the series occasionally had educational themes, more often than not, the three were an attempt to recapture the reference-heavy, anarchic comedy that was seen in the original Looney Tunes series, including in-jokes and studio references. One of the most memorable episodes was when the three siblings were acting out the plot of “Apocalypse Now,” and they found an angry Jerry Lewis in the role of Colonel Kurtz.

Additionally, the show featured a number of sketches that were built up around infamous characters, such as the Goodfeathers, who were the pigeon versions of the main characters seen in the movie “Goodfellas,” as well as “Pinky and the Brain,” who were two white lab mice who had a new plot to take over the role on every episode. Due to their popularity, the two eventually go their very own spinoff show.

What’s In Store for Viewers with the New Animaniacs?

For those who are eagerly waiting for the new show to commence, you will be happy to learn that the “Animaniacs” aren’t all you will get. In fact, the streaming deal with Hulu includes all the episodes of “Tiny Toon Adventures,” “Pinky and the Brain,” and of course, “Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain.” As far as the new series goes, you will just have to wait and see what the amazing mind of Spielberg comes up with this time.
