Hulu to get family-friendly with new ‘Animaniacs’ seasons

Published

Because Emmys and handmaids aren’t enough, Hulu is jumping into the family TV market with a revival of the kooky ’90s series Animaniacs

Steven Spielberg will executive produce the Warner Bros. and Amblin Entertainment series for two brand-new seasons.

Animaniacs first debuted on the WB in 1993 and ran for 99 episodes.

Mashable first reported rumor of a reboot in May 2017, when the show’s resurgent popularity on Netflix was gaining attention. (It’s since been removed from Netflix – guess where it lives now?) Now we know for sure: Yakko, Wakko, and Dot will be bursting out of the Warner Bros. tower to wreak havoc on whatever state the world is in come 2020, when the revival premieres.

In addition to Animaniacs, Hulu is now also home to Pinky and the Brain, Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain, and Tiny Toon Adventures. The streaming service also announced its acquisition of Lost Thursday morning, the same day it left Netflix.

“We cannot wait to work with Steven Spielberg and the entire Amblin and Warner Bros. teams to bring more sketches, catchphrases, songs and laughs from the Animaniacs to kids and adults everywhere,” said Hulu SVP of Content Craig Erwich in a press release. “Now one of the most beloved, inventive and funny animated franchises in history, Animaniacs and its cast of witty characters can live on, on Hulu. This marks yet another big move for us as we continue our efforts to be the #1 streaming destination for premium animated content.”

“Parents who grew up with the cartoon now have new episodes to share with their own families,” added Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series. 

Animaniacs is now streaming on Hulu.

The hats in “Westworld” were always about much more than aesthetic

“With a show like Westworld, it’s hard to get any reveal past avid Reddit theorists and media obsessives (hi, hello — that is us.) Yet somehow, showrunners Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan managed to pull it off on Sunday’s “Vanishing Point.”

A running mystery (among the many millions) this season revolved around the Delos Corporation’s ability to accurately copy guest cognition. The answer turned out to be so obvious in hindsight, we can’t stop kicking…..”

The Handmaid’s Tale Revealed the Truth Behind Gilead!

Science: 1. Gilead: 0.

“To watch The Handmaids Tale as a conscious member of a free society is to be keyed in to every injustice the Republic of Gilead commits against women.

Ostensibly, each of the institutionalized violations of womens rights the ban on reading, the forced marriages, the entire concept of Handmaids, and countless others stem from Gileads core purpose, which is to ensure the future of the human race in the face of a worldwide fertility crisis.

Government-approved rape and wife assignments are Gilead’s answer to a world where the wickedness of women caused millions of them to fall barren. But in Episode 9 of Season 2, the lie behind that logic is finally exposed: the worlds fertility crisis was an issue of inert sperm, not eggs. Women were never the problem.

To which I would like to say both holy shit and duh.

The holy shit part stands for my internal scream during this episode when Serena Joys itinerary for the Canada visit was outlined with pictures instead of words, out of sensitivity for Gileads anti-reading policy. This despite my refusal to accept Serena Joy as a victim in her own system.

That scream was for how entirely unfair the system of Gilead is. That unfairness only compounds with the fertility reveal. Every lynching victim…..”

The British reality dating show that you need to start watching immediately

“At precisely 9 p.m. every night for the next three months, just as the sun is setting over the United Kingdom, Twitter comes alive.

There’s nothing in the water and we certainly can’t blame it on the weather. It’s all because of Love Island, a British reality dating show that currently has the nation transfixed. Brits are gripped by the action unfolding on their television screens, and they begin flooding Twitter with their feelings using the #LoveIsland hashtag.

So, what the hell is Love Island? Well, in a nutshell, it’s Britain’s answer to the U.S.’s Bachelor In Paradise. The only difference is that the show airs every single night for three drama-packed months.

The new season of Love Island — which began one week ago — kicked off with the arrival of 11 strangers comprising six men and five women. The women arrive first and exchange hugs with their fellow contestants. Then, as the men arrive one-by-one, the ladies step forward when they see someone they like the look of.

Much like Bachelor in Paradise, the power alternates between the male and female contestants each week. Now, if that sentence….”
