Who's doing the music now that Richard Stone is dead? Is Randy Rogel still the spark? He wrote the song at the beginning of 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure and it's very much not in form, but that WAS 15 years ago...

I don't know. Warner Bros. Animation has seen better days and everybody knows it, but if this is what it takes to put them back on the map...

At this point with how terrible just about every reboot has been over the last decade I'm going to wait to see anything before I get excited. For every DuckTales you have... every other one.

I'm still waiting to see what the Monkey's Paw has in store for us. C'mon, CalArts art style, I can see it happening!

I am very excited for this reboot! Animaniacs is one of my favorite shows of all time and I am excited to see what stuff they will parody.

I hope the reboot is at the very least good. I actually enjoy a lot of revivals of old properties this decade. Wabbit, The Tom and Jerry Show, Mickey Mouse (2013), DuckTales (2017),  The Powerpuff Girls (2016), The Magic School Bus Rides Again, Samurai Jack Season 5, Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie, Teen Titans Go!, The Looney Tunes Show, and Wacky Races 2017 have all been enjoyable for me and I feel like some of them get a little too much hate (Especially Teen Titans Go!). Calm down people, it's just a cartoon. You know what's serious? Jobs, People, Health, and other stuff. Cartoons are a pastime. A hobby and nothing more than that. Yes, it's an art form, but still. Criticism is ok, but please don't obsess over hating it.

I just hope that they keep the educational and historical segments. Those were my favorite segments of the show. Animaniacs mixed entertainment and education really well. Up there with cartoons like Schoolhouse Rock, Stanley, JoJo's Circus, Blue's Clues, Arthur, The Magic School Bus, and others

Looking over the announcement, Spielberg is executive producing. The exec producer is the person who pays for everything. Since he's doing this with his company Amblin (along with WB Animation), this hopefully means that Spielberg will pay the staff plenty so they won't have a cheap animation style. Since we still have a couple years to wait and plenty of time for the animation team to work, I don't think we'll have to worry about the animation looking like CN's current crop of shows.

Do we know what the terms of the deal between WB and Amblin are? Because I'm curious. I know that on paper WB owns all the rights to TTA/A!/PATB/F! but they can't seem to do anything with them without Spielberg's involvement.

I actually got sick of Animaniacs...and Tiny Toons as a kid, but Pinky And The Brain has always been loved by me, once I think about it. I'll wait and see. I also want to see what they do with Wacko, Yakko and Dot.

That's a good question. Warner should technically own the characters lock, stock, and barrel, but yeah, they've only seemed to move forward when Spielberg is around.

I'm not surprised that he'd be interested in returning to the Warners, regardless. He's never been too far away from animation over the years, and if Ready Player One is any indication, he is not afraid to cash in on the nostalgia boom that has filled the market for the past decade or so. And since there still seems to be rights issues all around with Roger Rabbit (not to mention a lack of interest from most parties), it makes sense for him to return to his next most successful animated properties.
Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.
