'Animaniacs' is your latest childhood obsession to get a reboot

Share

The WB launched shows like Batman: The Animated Series, Tiny Toon Adventures, and perhaps the greatest comedy cartoon ever created, Animaniacs.

How did the "Animaniacs" theme song go again? Now, 18 years after anything zany to the max has been produced, IndieWire is reporting that a reboot is in the cards, with Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment back to make it happen.

The original series ran 99 episodes from 1993-1998. The series centered on the fabled Warner Brothers and the Warner Sister-Yakko, Wakko, and Dot-following their escape from the studio water tower, and their weird vignette escapades throughout history, literature, and film.

The totally insane-y '90s cartoon Animaniacs might be back on its way to a screen near you.

Along with the Warner siblings, Animaniacs introduced the world to a beloved crew of misfit weirdos, including Pinky and the Brain, a pair of genetically altered lab mice who devoted their lives to world domination. Animation are now in the early stages of "kicking around a brand new version" of the show. In addition, in 2016, the core voice cast that played Yakko, Wakko, and Dot announced a tour, in which they would be live performing a variety of the show's music, in addition to an updated version of "Yakko's World" to the tune of a full orchestra.

The IndieWire announcement made it very clear that the Animaniacs reboot does not have a "home network", and " insiders caution that it's still in the early stages of development". Spielberg is reportedly involved in the rebooting process. Fast forward to 2017 and yep, you guessed it: a reboot is in development.
