Heeellllooo Nurse! An Animaniacs Reboot Is In Development

It's time for Animaniac - to return to the small screen.

Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation are kicking around a brand new version of the hit 1990s cartoon Animaniacs. Original series creator Steven Spielberg, who developed the classic cartoon as follow-up to Tiny Toon Adventures, is expected to return to the new show.

Insiders close to the project say that it is in the extremely early stages of development.

Animaniacs ran for 99 episodes – from 1993 to 1995 on Fox Kids, before moving to Kids’ WB from 1995 to 1998. It would go on to win eight Daytime Emmy Awards during its run, as well as a Peabody Award. The show would also spawn the popular primetime spinoff Pinky And The Brain.

The cartoon featured various segments tied together by the Warner siblings - Yakko, Wakoo and Dot, who were locked away in the Warner Bros. watertower in the 1930's. They would escape in the 1990's and cause all sorts of fun-filled mayhem week after week.

Animaniacs featured a voice cast that included the likes of Rob Paulsen, Tress MacNeille, Jess Harnell, Sherri Stoner and Maurice LaMarche. Episodes featured plenty of pop culture references from everything from Tim Burton's Batman to Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park, and heavily scored with original songs and music.

The series ended in 1999 and has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity since arriving on Netflix last year. In fact, the show remains so fondly remembered that Paulsen and the cast recently announced plans to reunite via a series of stage shows known as Animaniacs Live!

Again, the new show is in the extremely early stages of development at this time, but you can guarantee the team here at Infinite Earths will cover any new details as they emerge.
