Animaniacs Clip Teases November Return with a Parody of Jurassic Park
Hulu has released a new Animaniacs clip from executive producer Steven Spielberg’s upcoming revival of the iconic animated series, featuring the return of the series’ characters in a parody of a famous scene from 1993’s Jurassic Park. Also featuring animated versions of Spielberg, Sam Neill’s Alan Grant, Laura Dern’s Ellie Sattler, and Jeff Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm, you can check out the video in the player below!
Steven Spielberg will return as the executive producer of the series, with Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series, and Amblin Television Co-Presidents Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank also serving as executive producers.
The Warner brothers, Yakko and Wakko, and the Warner sister, Dot have a great time wreaking havoc and mayhem. For a very long time, they’ve been locked away in the Warner Bros. water tower. However, now they’ve found a way to escape, so they do it — every day! Causing chaos and comic confusion, Yakko, Wakko and Dot run loose in the city, turning the world into their personal playground. The fan-favorite characters Pinky and the Brain will also return to make appearances in each episode.
After first announcing the new series, Hulu and Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution also revealed that Hulu will be the show’s exclusive partner. This means they’ll get to air the complete library of all 99 episodes of the original Animaniacs. Of course, that also include Pinky and the Brain, the subsequent Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain, and the complete Tiny Toon Adventures collection. As of today, Hulu subscribers can watch their favorite moments from the original series with the entire family.
The original series made its television debut in 1993 and went on to become one of the most popular animated series for children. Since its premiere, the series has launched various spin-offs including the beloved Pinky and the Brain. The show also managed to set the record for most Daytime Emmy Awards in the field of Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction and Composition for any animated series, winning three times.
With its balance of humor, education and pop culture references, Animaniacs also garnered a huge adult fan following. Award-winning songs like “Yakko’s World” and “Wakko’s America” continue to educate audiences and remain fan favorites among both adults and children.
Animaniacs is set for a November 20 premiere date on Hulu!
