Animaniacs is an American animated television series developed by Steven Spielberg for streaming service Hulu. It is a revival of the original 1993 television series of the same name. The new series sees the return of the Warner Brothers, Yakko and Wakko and their sister Dot (voiced respectively by their original actors, Rob Paulsen, Jess Harnell, and Tress MacNeille), and of Pinky and the Brain (voiced by Paulsen and Maurice LaMarche). Two seasons were ordered to be produced by Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation; the first season premiered on Hulu on November 20, 2020, and the second season has a date set for 2021.
The first season received generally positive reviews, with praise for the animation, voice acting, and musical numbers, though critics found it to be lacking in charm compared to the original, which was attributed to the absence of much of the original production staff (including DigiPost TV, which had shut down before post-production on the first season could commence) and the influence by recent animated shows on its approach, such as Family Guy.
