Hulu Revives ‘Animaniacs’ with 2-Season Order

Twenty years have passed since the beloved “Animaniacs” left the air on The WB Network, and it now has a two season revival straight to series that will live on Hulu thanks to the streaming company, Warner Bros. Animation and Amblin Television.

With the deal, the streaming service will own the rights to “Animaniacs,” “Pinky and the Brain,” the subsequent “Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain” and the complete “Tiny Toon Adventures” collection. Those episodes are available to stream now exclusively on Hulu. The revival of “Animaniacs” will air in 2020. This will be Hulu’s first original series for families.

Steven Spielberg will act as the executive producer along with the Warner Bros. Animation head, Sam Register, and Amblin Television co-presidents, Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank, to bring more laughs, sketches, catchphrases and more. Fan favorite characters will be kept in the lineup including Pinky and the Brain. Cragi Erwich, Senior VP Content at Hulu, spoke in a statement on Thursday:

“We cannot wait to work with Steven Spielberg and the entire Amblin and Warner Bros. teams to bring more sketches, catchphrases, songs and laughs from the Animaniacs to kids and adults everywhere. Now one of the most beloved, inventive and funny animated franchises in history, Animaniacs and its cast of witty characters can live on, on Hulu. This marks yet another big move for us as we continue our efforts to be the No. 1 streaming destination for premium animated content.”

“Animaniacs” debuted in 1993 and went on to win eight daytime Emmy Awards. The series helped launch several spinoffs and concluded in 1998. The revival will join Hulu’s kids library along with “The Powerpuff Girls,” “Teen Titans Go,” “Doc Mcstuffins” and more. Spielberg commented:

“I am so pleased and proud that Animaniacs will have a home at Hulu. Together with Warner Bros., we look to bring new audiences and longtime fans into this wild world of Yakko, Wakko and Dot. I am also excited that the full library of Animaniacs and Tiny Toon Adventures episodes are included in the deal.”

Reboots and revivals continue to be in high demand, and a Spielberg controlled reboot might be the key to success. “Animaniacs” was such a huge hit in the 1990’s that it will be interesting to see how present day audiences will take the wacky animation show.
