Animaniacs Getting Rebooted

Hellooooooo Nurse! I never thought I would live to see the day that the Warner Brothers and their sister would escape their vault for yet another time, but here w are. If you were a kid growing up in the 90s then there was nothing you looked forward to more than coming home from school and tuning in to the crazy adventures of Yako, Wako, and their sister Dot. It’s been almost 20 years since the final episode of the Animaniacs aired and cartoons haven’t been the same since. Well here we are in 2017 and the beloved show from our childhood is looking at getting rebooted and making a comeback to TV.

Taken from IndieWire The potential reboot comes as “Animaniacs” has experienced a new surge in popularity since arriving on Netflix last year. Steven Spielberg, who developed the original as a follow-up to the success of his “Tiny Toon Adventures,” is expected to be on board in crafting the updated version.

Now before we get too excited we have to keep in mind that so far there is nothing set in stone with this new Animaniacs series. It is still in the very early stages of development and has no official home as of yet. However, with the popularity of the show on Netflix it would make a lot of sense for the streaming service to go ahead and pick up the new series as well. Only time will tell what awaits fans of this classic 90s cartoon reboot. My first thoughts about this possible Animaniacs reboot is that they are going to have a hard time recreating the magic of the original 90s cartoon series. The original Animaniacs was a comical blend of satirical humor, slap stick comedy, and social commentary.

Though some of the jokes went over our heads when we were young it was still easily digestible and entertaining for both kids and adults. This new show will have a hard time combining all those things with today’s politically correct and easily offended society. My fear is that it will be a watered down version of what it once was and ultimately end up being a disappoint to fans of the original series. Again, only time will tell, but as always we want to hear from you Nerd Nation.
