Yakko, Wakko, and Dot’s “pay-or-play contracts” have been renewed!
Animaniacs, one of my favorite shows as a kid is being brought back by Hulu with all new seasons! And yes, executive producer Steven Spielberg is back for the ride!
Hulu has picked up two brand-new seasons of Animaniacs, which will feature Yakko, Wakko, and Dot, along with side characters like Pinky and the Brain. Spielberg will executive produce with Warner Bros. president Sam Register and Amblin Television’s co-presidents. In a press release, Register said, “Parents who grew up with the cartoon now have new episodes to share with their own families.”
Or you know I can spend my Saturday afternoons smoking weed and watching Animaniacs all over again.
This news comes with the announcement that the entire library of original-run Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain, and Tiny Toon Adventures are available now on Hulu. The new Animaniacs will debut in 2020.
According to the press release, the famous Warner brothers, Yakko and Wakko, along with sister Dot, have been trapped in the water tower ever since their series ended in 1998—which sounds kind of depressing, think of how much they’ve missed?! No word on where Pinky and the Brain have been hiding.
And let’s not forget Chicken Boo!
Good night everyone!
