It’s time for Animaniacs! Hulu has decided to reboot the classic series with director Steven Spielberg at the helm once again.
“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,” Craig Erwich, SVP of content at Hulu, said. “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,” he added. “This marks yet another big move for us as we continue our efforts to be the No. 1 streaming destination for premium animated content.”
Many millennials know about the Animaniacs and their crazy antics. The former WB show was the ultimate way to get into relaxation mode after a long and hard day at school. It did a young soul good to come home and see Yakko, Wakko, and Dot getting into trouble and wreaking absolute havoc. Does anyone else remember those days? Good times.
“I am so pleased and proud that Animaniacs will have a home at Hulu,” Steven Spielberg said in a statement. “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.” So are we, Steve!
Animaniacs comes to Hulu in 2020. Stay tuned for more television news!
