How could we ever forget coming home from school and being glued in front of the TV screen with bowl of Fruity Pebbles in hand while watching Animaniacs? Just the mention of the animated series has us singing the "zany to the max" theme song in our heads.
Now, Yakko, Wakko and Dot have broken loose from the Warner Bros. tower where they have been locked away, to make their grand return on our favorite streaming service.
Netflix has brought back one of our favorite childhood series from the '90s, releasing the entire Animaniacs series, which consists of 99 episodes, on its platform.
Are you pondering what I'm pondering? If you are, then, yes, this means you will be able to see sketches from Pinky and the Brain that were included in the series.
Created by Tom Ruegger and produced by Steven Spielberg, Animaniacs debuted on Fox Kids in 1993 and ran for two years before hitting The WB (now The CW) from 1995 to 1998. The animated series starred the three adorable anthropomorphized siblings who always seemed to get into some kind of trouble. The series was more like a slapstick variety show, with each episode featuring different skits with reoccurring characters like the mice who wanted to take over the world, Pinky and the Brain, and the mafia pigeon gang known as the Goodfeathers.
Other popular supporting characters included Buttons and Mindy, Slappy Squirrel and Professor Otto von Schnitzelpusskrankengescheitmeier.
Being able to stream every single episode of Animaniacs is a dream for any kid who grew up in the '90s. If only Netflix also brought back series like Tiny Toon Adventures and Freakazoid!, we would be able to live in a constant state of WB nostalgia. At least we have enough episodes of Animaniacs to keep us laughing all month long. With jokes that contained adult humor, we will probably enjoy the series so much more now.
Netflix also features some other classic cartoons that we can stream on Saturday mornings — or whenever we please — like Danger Mouse, The Powerpuff Girls, The Magic School Bus and Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated.
