It's unclear how much of this show will be for kids

It'll probably be as kid-friendly as the original series from the 90s.

Anyway, elsewhere, that "never mansplainy" line has really triggered the type of snowflake who uses the term "triggered snowflakes" unironically.


It's about ethics in animation scripting *wink*

It really just looks like crap. The bar for entertainment has lowered so far that people will glom onto anything that reminds them of their childhood.

Also:  I said this when (the reference) was popular.  It was an absolute tragedy to have no Animaniacs a few years ago.  "Here Comes Chicken Boo-Boo" would have been comedy gold!

I liked this one better. Still super excited for the reboot though and that's something I don't think I've ever said before.

If not that one, I can only guess you expect us poor innocent Farkers to climb up on dangerous Perl-driven webservers and paint naked people all over a church?

We'll do it.

I always thought Buttons and Mindy should've been two episodes, max.

Episode one, Mindy tortures Buttons in the usual way.

Episode 2, Buttons lets Mindy die horribly. End of series.

Shhhh... Don't tell him about SpiderMan, Universal, and Marvel.

This would be a new licensing deal, not like the film deal Sony and Marvel got into with Spiderman. The last place Animaniacs ran was on Kids WB   and is distributed by Warner Television.

It just shows you how incompetent AT&T is at things: a beloved property gets licensed out to their competitor rather than trying to use it to get more people on their own service.

Yeah. So? Yet here we are.


Also, Hulu announced this Animaniacs deal in January 2018. HBO Max wasn't a thing until October 2018.

So, when the deal was being made, AT&T didn't even own WB, there was no WBAT&T streaming service on the horizon, and Hulu was interested.

Not to say AT&TWB aren't generally idiots, but this case isn't part of that idiocy.
