Reboots are not always a good idea, of course. Sometimes it’s best just to leave the content of nostalgia preserved in amber, where it can’t be sullied by subpar jumpstarts and corporate greed. We all know this. So do Yacko, Wakko and Dot, and they call themselves out and pretty much everything else in the first full trailer for Hulu’s upcoming Animaniacs reboot. You might be a cynic about revamps like this, but the whole thing looks so ecstatic, self-aware and deliciously unhinged that you can’t help but be a little won over. Plus, Pinky and the Brain are back to doing the same thing they do every night!
Speaking of being preserved in amber, Steven Spielberg is on board as an executive producer here, so it’s bound to retain at least a little of the original charm, even if the voice cast has gone through some re-tooling. The new season will drop on Hulu on November 20. Those are the facts!
