Hello nurse! Here’s your first look at the new Animaniacs cartoon series

The Warner Brothers! And their sister Dot! In an age long since forgotten, a Saturday morning just wouldn’t have been complete without a bowl of dangerously sweet cereal, a TV remote, and the latest episode of Animaniacs. While the inamous Warner siblings may have been the headline act of the show, there were also segments devoted to other characters.

Pinky and the Brain proved popular enough to warrant their own spin-off (Narf!), Good Idea Bad Idea was always strangely wise, and Slappy Squirel was just…weird. Anyway, the OG Animaniacs show followed a simple formula that worked wonders: Take the piss out of pop culture, throw in zany antics and time it to a soundtrack that deserved more love.

Which is exactly what I’m getting vibes of below, in the upcoming revival of the cult classic series:

That looks good1 While I’ll be the first person to admit that the digital art style chosen removes some of the rough charm that the original series had, it’s still a hand-drawn process that looks a heck of a lot cleaner than what I’m used to. Maybe it’s just me, but I like to see some dirt in my illustration. Otherwise, it’s business as usual for the Animaniacs.

The original cast is back, there are decades worth of movies to lampoon, and the show is headed to Hulu on November 20. At which point we’ll all be shouting “HELLO NURSE” when that familiar jingle starts up.

    Thank [enter Deity of choice here] they didn’t go with the new art style every one seems to be going with, where it looks like it’s been drawn by a 1st grader with ADHD.
    This makes me happy.

      November just might be a great month of an otherwise crappy year:
      1. XSX
      2. Cyberpunk
      3. Animaniacs

      Yeah like that one TMNT they did a couple of years ago. Looked like a 5 year old’s fridge drawing

        Man, that TMNT show was nightmare fuel. Same with the lame Sheera shit as well.

    Colour me surprised and …. interested… I’ll be cautiously optimistic even though a lot of these reboots of nostalgic shows have failed so dismally. The past few years have shown us that the originals should have been left alone… and that the reboots should never have been made (from TMNT, Sheera, thundercats etc).

    This one doesn’t seem to be a lame or shitty”CalArts” re-imagining… and that’s already a plus for me. I’ll keep my fingers crossed. Let’s hope for the best.

      She Ra was an abomination. An offering to the woke crowd. Canceled after only 5 seasons.

        5 seasons too many if you ask me, it should have been trashed after the first one or never saw the light of day like Thundercats roar
