The early to mid 90’s was a golden era for animation. We had ducks with tales and dark wings, there were ancient Scottish gargoyles protecting New York (from Commander Riker, no less,) heck even the Simpson’s wasn’t completely terrible yet. In those hyper-color™ halcyon days, Warner Bros. had an amazingly successful run with the likes of the animated adventures of Batman, Superman, and even a unique twist on their Looney Tunes stable with Tiny Toon Adventures. It truly was the a great time for cartoons.
Decades later, WB’s (and humanities,) greatest cartoon might be making it’s return. So just sit back and relax because it just might be time for more Animaniacs! (more…)
It looks like the WBTV will be taking over San Diego Comic Con this year with a record 21 TV shows including eight new shows complete with full pilots. This, of course, means that many of the stars and creators of these shows will also be in attendance including SDCC regular Stephen Amell from Arrow, The Flash‘s Grant Gustin, iZombie‘s Rose McIver and The Vampire Diaries‘ Ian Somerhalder just to name a few.

Clearly we are entering into an Animaniacs renaissance. Not soon after the show being added to Netflix, the announcement that a Yakko (Rob Paulsen,) Wakko (Jess Harnell,) and, Tress MacNeille (the sister Dot) would be going on tour to perform the music from the classic cartoon, and now? This hidden little gem from SF Sketchfest, the San Francisco Comedy Festival, is making the rounds again.
Rob Paulsen (Pinky) and Maurice LaMarche (The Brain) run through an iconic scene from Quentin tarantino’s Pulp Fiction with Pinky as Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson,) and The Brain as Vincent Vega (John Travolta) naturally. Improving it to no end. (more…)
Over the last 5 years there’s been a resurgence in popular 80’s and 90’s cartoons or TV shows, some of which have been revived and brought back for our viewing pleasure. Of course we’ve got a Full House revival, a miniseries continuation of The X-Files, new Twin Peaks next year, new Powerpuff Girls, and that’s just a tip of the nostalgia iceberg. This month the Animaniacs was made available for streaming on Netflix, but for all lovers of our Zanny trio: Yakko, Wakko & Dot; the fun doesn’t stop at just watching the show. Warner Bros. is rewarding the love with some live-action song stylings. Check out more after the jump.
