Animaniacs Will Return With New Episodes This Year

To begin with, no story about the Animaniacs can begin without the opening lines of that iconic theme song.

Ok, here we go....

"It's time for An-I-man-I-acs
And we're zany to the max
So just sit back and relax
You'll laugh till you collapse
We're An-I-man-I-acs
Come join the Warner brothers
And the Warner sister Dot
Just for fun we run around the Warner movie lot
They lock us in the tower whenever we get caught
But we break loose...
And then vamoose...
And now you know the plot"

Well, the whole gang are back with new episodes arriving on US streaming service Hulu from November 20, a full 22 years after its final episode aired.

As reported by Variety, the Steven Spielberg-produced reboot of the classic ’90s cartoon "will see Warner siblings, Yakko and Wakko, and the Warner sister Dot, have a great time wreaking havoc and mayhem in the lives of everyone they meet."

As always, the trio will be joined by Pinky and the Brain, who will undoubtedly continue their quest for world domination.

The reboot was announced two years ago but news of a premiere date is bound to excite fans of the iconic cartoon.

If that's not enough good news, a second season consisting of 13 more episodes has also been commissioned.

The original Animaniacs made its television debut in 1993 and went on to become one of the most popular animated series for children.

It went on to win eight Daytime Emmys and launch a number of spin-offs, before wrapping up in 1998.

At present, no word on an official release date in Ireland has been made, but we fully expect the new episodes to be available to stream over here too.
