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.

‘About Time’ may not be a holiday movie, but it’s perfect holiday viewing nonetheless
“Each December, we bust out the holiday cheer, from obnoxious Christmas music to Love Actually on a loop. I’m all about this — I usually leave my tree up until my January birthday — but I start with a different movie: About Time.
From Love Actually writer-director Richard Curtis, About Time is comparatively trimmed down, following the life of Tim (Domhnall Gleeson), the young son in a family where the men can travel through time. There are no other sci-fi frills (and probably some plot holes as a result, but who cares!), since as Tim’s father (Bill Nighy) notes, they can’t change anything outside their own lives.
Instead, we watch Tim try to make the most of his existence, not with money or glory but with happiness, plain and pure.
I’ve loved About Time probably since I saw the trailer in 2013. It was the first movie I saw in theaters after moving to New York that fall, with an old friend and diehard movie buff who was seeing it for a second time. We saw it just after Thanksgiving, which gave it a built-in holiday association for me.
As with Curtis’ previous work, what that truly stands out is the writing – specifically the dialogue, which is unique a way that reflects, you know, how people actually talk, but remains memorable in its specificity (“She wasn’t like other mums. There was something solid about her, rectangular”).
Because Tim grew up by the sea in Cornwall, much of the film occupies its own world, and the parts that take place in London are evergreen, unencumbered by technology or pop culture references.
Like Love Actually, About Time has some issues. After a lovely meet cute with Mary (Rachel McAdams), Tim loses her number and has to meet her again for the first time…………………………………………”
