For the first time in nearly 20 years, new episodes of the Emmy Award-winning animated series “Animaniacs” could be about to become a reality.

Plans have been announced to reboot the beloved 90s show, though exact details remain to be seen.

The Steven Spielberg and Warner Bros. produced series ran from 1993 to 1998 presenting a fast-paced, sophisticated cultural spoof that delighted children and adults alike (perhaps adults even more.)

Featuring the Warner siblings, Yakko, Wakko, and Dot in a variety of segments and musical numbers, the show was also supplemented by memorable supporting characters like Pinky and the Brain (who received their own spin-off series) and the GoodFeathers (a parody of GoodFellas) amongst many others.

The jokes, pop culture references, and original songs were highlights of the show and contributed to its eight Daytime Emmys and a Peabody Award.

Steven Spielberg is reportedly returning to produce the new series once again, but will it have the same punch that the original show had? It will remain to be seen but for fans of the show and those nostalgic for 1990s animated television, this is welcome news indeed. It is indeed time to say again “Helloooo Nurse!”
