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.
