The wacky and hilarious Animaniacs are coming back to our various screens in November thanks to Hulu, and the original voice cast are coming with it! That's right, the original voices of Yakko (Rob Paulsen), Wakko (Jess Harnell), and Dot (Tress MacNeille) from the animated show's first run between 1993 and 1998 will be back to create even more hilarious content for you and your kids to enjoy.
According to Hulu's original press release back in January 2018, "Under the two-season straight-to-series order, Steven Spielberg will return as executive producer of the series . . . The series marks the first Hulu Original made for families, and with the legacy of these beloved characters, is intended to provide a co-viewing opportunity and experience for families to enjoy together."
The casting news was announced on Twitter on Oct. 8, 2019 — by the account for The Animanicast, a podcast that centers on the show — after it was printed in Paulsen's new book, Voice Lessons: "We are VERY pleased to finally see in PRINT today in @yakkopinky's 'Voice Lessons' that the original voice cast of #Animaniacs has indeed been working on the upcoming reboot!"
According to Hulu, "After returning to their beloved home, the Warner Bros. water tower, the siblings waste no time in causing chaos and comic confusion as they run loose through the studio, turning the world into their personal playground. Joining Yakko, Wakko and Dot, fan-favorite characters Pinky and the Brain also return to continue their quest for world domination."
We can't wait to watch the fun unfold in the 13 new episodes that hit Hulu on Nov. 20.
