When Animaniacs returned with a model new season on Hulu final yr, the tip end result was one thing nostalgic, however not fully certain who it was for. New episodes are only a month away from launch, and the primary take a look at season two could not change your thoughts both approach.
Premiering on the sequence’ New York Comedian-Con 2021 panel—that includes voice actors Jess Harnell (Wakko), Tress MacNeille (Dot), Rob Paulson (Yakko), and Maurice Lamarche (The Mind)—the clip beneath has the Warner siblings spoof Thundercats.
The ‘80s Cats skit is humorous sufficient, if solely as a result of Paulsen can do the “Thundercats, HOOOOOO!” surprisingly nicely. Likewise, the tune is catchy in the way in which that almost all Animaniacs songs are, it simply seems like a punchline that’s too late. The Thundercats exist on this bizarre cultural limbo proper now after the tip of the zany Thundercats Roar! and the 2011 anime reboot. If the joke got here across the time of Roar or if we have been nonetheless speaking about that film that may be happening, it could have hit more durable. Both approach, the Warners and Pinky and the Mind will do what they do greatest throughout the brand new 13-episode season: popular culture references, cartoony chaos, and attempt to take over the world.
In a press launch supplied to io9, the one confirmed returning characters from final season are the alien Starbox and Cindy, the human lady who thinks he’s a weird-looking animal. The press launch additionally teases some “rejected characters” left on the chopping room flooring however offers no additional information. Possibly it’ll deliver again a number of the characters from the unique present like Slappy Squirrel? Or do we now have to attend till season three for them?
Animaniacs season two hits Hulu on November 5.
