Each and every week, your hosts revisit an episode of the series in the order in which they first premiered. They discuss their favorite jokes, gags, and discuss all the cultural references they can find! Today's special episode features a discussion of the upcoming reboot of Animaniacs, thoughts from the hosts of the Animanicast, and some statements from some of the original writers of Animaniacs.
Animaniacs is back on streaming media! Following its successful run on Netflix in 2017, and rumors of a possible reboot in May of 2017, it was announced on January 4th, 2018 that Warner Bros. and Amblin Entertainment had reached a deal with Hulu to stream classic episodes of the series along with classic episodes of Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and the Brain, and Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain. In addition to this, the highly anticipated reboot of the series is scheduled to premiere in 2020 exclusively on Hulu. Two new seasons of the show have been ordered.
The classic episodes of Animaniacs, et al. are all available right now on Hulu for your enjoyment!
Joey, Nathan and Kelly read the official statements from Hulu, Warner Bros, and Steven Spielberg before having a brief discussion of what they hope to see in the future seasons of Animaniacs. Animation style, voice actors, as well as retaining the original creators and writers of the show are all discussed.
In a late breaking addition, it appears that the original writers and creators of Animaniacs have not yet been asked to return to the series. This is very disappointing news and, while it could change, it puts a damper on much of the excitement that the initial reboot announcement has created. We will share more news as it develops on our Twitter and Facebook accounts.
