Steven Spielberg Returns For New Animaniacs Series

Yesterday (30/05/2017), it was announced that the legendary and multiple Oscar-winning Hollywood director – Steven Spielberg will be working on a new rebooted series of Warner Bros. Animation’s Animaniacs. The popular 1990’s animated show, mostly follows three zany 1930’s cartoon stars named collectively as the Warners: Yakko, Wakko, and Dot, they were locked away in the Warner Bros. Studios water tower but when they escaped they cause all sorts of mayhem and trouble around the studio lot. The show also spawned a popular spin-off animated show called Pinky and The Brain, a show about two laboratory mice who plot to takeover the world, one of them is a genius and other is dimwitted.

Prior to Animaniacs, Steven Spielberg was also the talent behind Warner Bros. Animation’s Tiny Toons Adventures, a show about young cartoon characters attending a “Looniversity” studying on how to become the next generation of Looney Tunes stars, the show featured the usual slapstick humour with loads of references to Looney Tunes cartoons.

Animaniacs, Tiny Toons Adventures and Pinky and the Brain were aired later on Cartoon Network USA and UK in the late 90’s-early 00’s.

The reboot is currently in the preliminary stages and it’s not presently known if Cartoon Network or Boomerang will air the new series (or even add Animaniacs to Boomerang’s new streaming service in the U.S. along with the classic episodes) if production fully goes ahead. However, knowing the close relationship between Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. under the same parent company, it seems likely.
