Animaniacs' showrunner and executive producer, Wellesley Wild, alongside co-executive producer, Gabe Swarr, chat with us about their approach to working on the Animaniacs 2020 series and what to expect with the continuation.

22 years of pent-up zaniness coming your way! All-new episodes of Animaniacs premiere November 20, only on Hulu!

They're back! The Warner brothers, Yakko and Wakko, and the Warner sister Dot, have a great time wreaking havoc and mayhem in the lives of everyone they meet. After returning to their beloved home, the Warner Bros. water tower, the siblings waste no time in causing chaos and comic confusion as they run loose through the studio, turning the world into their personal playground. Joining Yakko, Wakko and Dot, fan-favorite characters Pinky and the Brain also return to continue their quest for world domination.

It's not just a reboot it's also a letdown

I say that they just fix it in season 2 and just leave out the things that are unimportant and/or are too relied on.

I like how it feels continued. Not a reboot, not a spiritual successor, but a story to bring the past to the present without losing its context. I like it.

People ask how the actors after all this time still have this same voice. And I think are they gonna hire me.

I know how hard it is to get every voice actor to sign up for it, but it's still really disappointing that we won't be seeing all our favorites back. The 1993 version wouldn't be as memorable without Sherri Stoner (Slappy), Chick Vennera (Pesto), Nancy Cartwright (Mindy), or especially Bernadette Peters (Rita), among others.

"We couldn't go as far as Family Guy." Need i remind you of the finger "Prince"(prints) joke from the original series. That still might be the most offensive joke i've ever heard in a "kids" cartoon/anime.

That's because it isn't a reboot, it's a revival A reboot is when you take an IP and start over from scratch with it, making previous versions of that IP a separate canon. A revival is a direct continuation of the previous series without being a sequel.

Are people really that surprised that the show doesn't include some of the humor that the original series used 22 years ago with characters like Hello Nurse? Bugs Bunny used to do blackface in his early cartoons, but he didn't in later ones. Because in the time since then, blackface had become unacceptable, so they stopped including blackface jokes. They would have to be incredibly dense to include references to minstrel shows just because they were acceptable back when the original shorts were made. Times change, this isn't a recent phenomenon. Hell, even back in the 90s they knew some of their characters were a bit problematic. You can see this in "Wakko's Wish", where they had Hello Nurse wish for people to take her intellect seriously instead of being focused on her appearance.

Just finished the last episode of the Reboot. And OMG. I’m so glad they brought it back. I’ve missed the Warner’s so much
He said it's not a reboot but a continuation and then back tracked to say it was a reboot after he got caught up with sexualizing an attractive character

I really love the reboot. It's way animated and hilarious even thank goodness it's rated TV-PG because of adult humor. I hope you'll producing the new reboot of my favorite animated 1990's series: Tiny Toons. Amblin, Warner Bros and you guys, thank you for bringing my childhood memories even tougher times in 20 years. KEEP IT UP, TOONSTERS!

I was a pre teen/teenager when this shows originally aired so it was a huge part of my youth and I am LOVING this reboot so far. I only wish things were different so we COULD have certain other characters (ahem H.N.) back and some of the other memorable shorts also came back....least Pinky And The Brain came back which was hands down the most popular short of the series.
Armando Simental
Seth McFarlane / Steven Spielberg Collab. Animaniacs / Family guy Special would be awesome like the Simpsons - Family Guy Episode. But its probably impossible Disney vs. Warner Bros. Maybe for Hulu🤷‍♂️🤞

I love the reboot as much as the original! It’s funny as hell and still keeps some adult jokes in there, some original characters came back, and it’s just Animaniacs! I love reboot! I do feel like there’s not a lot of hello nurse which I loved but I’m fine with it! Pink and the Brains new animated theme song does NOT get enough Recognition! When I saw pinky and the brain and I loved it. Every thing is the same but yet still different in way which I love! Thanks Steven.

This isn't thinking that pointing out the problem is the same as solving it, like how _Family Guy_ will often "call itself out" for ripping off _The Simpsons_ or whatnot. This is taking the problem and lampooning it to the point where it's no longer problematic. We get it Stewie, the judges on _American Idol_ can be really, really harsh, but an oversimplified version of an audition at _American Idol_ isn't a punchline.
