Could THIS Be The Animated Revival To End Them All? Huge 90s Show Reboot In The Worksby

In the world of entertainment in 2017, much of what we see, we’ve already seen before - in one way or another. From movie reboots of old TV properties (see CHiPS, 21 Jump Street, Baywatch) to resurrected TV properties that never seem to lose popularity (The X-Files, Twin Peaks, Red Dwarf) – the idea of taking something ‘retro’ and beloved and making it anew really is big business. For the longest time, some of the biggest TV properties and movies have stood alone without having been retouched for a new generation – yet, it seems, it may finally be time for a new viewing audience to say hello to the return of Animaniacs.

Animaniacs was a huge hit in the early 90s, an animated variety show that largely focused on the Warner Bros (and Sister) breaking out of their studio water tower and causing havoc everywhere they turn. The cartoon series also spawned the hugely popular Pinky and The Brain, two lab mice who desired to take over the world – failing spectacularly each and every time. Steven Spielberg is largely credited with having brought the show to our screens, and it is thought that his company, Amblin, is working to retool Yakko, Wakko and Dot for a modern audience.

The show was widely known for some hidden adult humor and for its wry jabs at both current celebrity and historical figures – while retaining slapstick and visual gags that kept a wide audience of viewers entertained. The show has seen a large spike in DVD sales and it is thought that its resurgence on US Netflix has encouraged Amblin Television to start thinking about how the crazy characters could work over twenty years on. The reboot is thought to be in early development – meaning that there will hopefully be more news on the horizon in the coming months.

Animaniacs is not the only 90s TV staple to be getting the revival treatment recently – trailers have landed for Disney’s re-imagining of Duck Tales, with David Tennant voicing Scrooge McDuck, while a reboot of popular sitcom Roseanne is set to undo the critically divisive final season of the original run with an imminent return. Then, of course, there’s Twin Peaks – a show which, despite being so decidedly strange and despite having been off the air for nearly thirty years, has returned to rave reviews. Long live the reboot – if they keep up the quality, that is!
