Hulu Celebrates ‘Animaniacs’ 27th Anniversary


In anticipation of their upcoming reboot of the beloved 90s series Animaniacs, Hulu decided to celebrate the 27th anniversary of the original series premiere by releasing a behind the scenes look at the new series.

The teaser shows original cast members Rob Paulsen (Yakko and Pinky), Tress MacNeille (Dot),  Maurice LaMarche (The Brain), and Jess Harnell (Wakk0) in a recording booth reciting their lines for the new production. Hulu’s official summary for the reboot reads:

“The Warner brothers, Yakko and Wakko, and the Warner sister, Dot — three inseparable, irascible siblings — have a great time wreaking havoc and mayhem in the lives of everyone they meet. They have been locked away in the Warner Bros. water tower for a very long time, but they have found a way to escape. And escape they do — every day! Causing chaos and comic confusion, Yakko, Wakko and Dot run loose in the city, turning the world into their personal playground”

This seems to promise to live up to the zany hilarity of the original, with more wacky jokes and antics from the three siblings, while news from the cast itself suggests a whole new series of world domination attempts from lab mice Pinky and the Brain.

This anniversary gift from Hulu has served to drum up excitement among fans for the upcoming reboot. The cast is also quite excited at the chance to return to these beloved characters after over two decades, and who can blame them! Animaniacs has a special place in many of our hearts, and this teaser has offered fans a light they can look forward to at the end of the tunnel that has been 2020 so far.

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
