Quote of the Day, So Much Anticipation! So Much Dread! edition.

I find this… fraught.

Arriving on Friday, November 20, Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation are bringing back the cartoon siblings for 13 episodes. Additionally, Pinky and the Brain will also be a part of the new Animaniacs series.

Mostly because I have no hopes or clues about how this gets resolved. The new Animaniacs could be fantastic! Or awful! We have no way of knowing ahead of time. It’s like playing a game of Russian Roulette where you don’t know how many bullets are in the gun*.

Guess we’ll find out November 20th! On Hulu!

*Surely I am not the first person to make that rather alarming analogy.

The Animaniacs is being revived for Hulu in 2020.

Guess I’m going to get Hulu, then.

Wakko, Yakko, and Dot are coming back to television. On Thursday, Hulu announced they have partnered with Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation to create and premiere a brand-new version of beloved cartoon franchise Animaniacs. New episodes will premiere on Hulu in 2020.

The show follows the zany trio, who have finally found a way to escape from the Warner Bros. water tower after being locked away for a long time, and they will be unleashed to wreak havoc on the city. Fan-favorites Pinky and the Brain will also return to make appearances in each episode.

And that’s pretty much it, huh? Hulu’s already got the complete library of The Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, and Tiny Toons up as part of the deal.  So, if you’ll excuse me…

Tweet of the Day, I Fail To See How An Animaniacs Reboot Can End Badly edition.

Because this sort of thing ALWAYS works out in the end.


Maybe if they bring back the actors, the animators, the artists, the writers, and the entire production crew? And rewind the culture so that it’ll all make sense?  And… OK, that last bit I was about to write probably qualified as libel.

I laughed and laughed at this Penny Arcade cartoon about one of the odder aspects of Assassin’s Creed gameplay; but as my wife noted, this comic still lacks something.

It lacks… the Godpigeon.


A rare oversight by Penny Arcade, methinks.
