Steven Spielberg Returns For New Animaniacs Series

Steven Spielberg Returns For New Animaniacs Series

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.

Samurai Jack To Return On Adult Swim USA In 2016

If you grew up watching Cartoon Network in the early-to-mid noughties you’ve may have of heard of Genndy Tartakovsky’s action-packed animated show, Samurai Jack. The show is returning in 2016 but not on Cartoon Network USA but rather on Adult Swim as part of the Toonami programming block, this may be because of multiple reasons, first of all, it’s an action show so it suits the action block perfectly, second, the show has a much more adult feel and third, the show’s original audience are now adults.

Creator and executive producer Genndy Tartakovsky has returned to Cartoon Network Studios to get production of the new series off the ground after it was greenlighted. Next year, we’ll get to see more amazing adventures with Jack and the story will continue from where the series left off.
