I’m Lukewarm About the Animaniacs Coming Back

So the Animaniacs cartoon was a staple of my childhood, like so many other people. It was a great show. Very funny. And it’s coming back for a revival at Hulu. But…I dunno. I’m not very confident.

This first proper trailer looks fine, at least.

I just don’t know if Animaniacs is the right show to reboot. I think it might have been too much a product of its specific ’90s time. Animation has evolved so much since then. Comedy has evolved so much since then. Will Animaniacs be able to grab on to the modern zeitgeist?

We shall see on Hulu on Nov. 20!
