    I felt the same way about the brief appearances by the original side characters, I was so happy they brought them back but extremely disappointed they didn’t stay long/even give a reason they’re not back. Also Chicken Boo was great! I loved his segments, along with Slappy and the Goodfeathers, (who were great as well)

    I'm a newcomer to the Animaniacs fandom and I gotta say, I missed out on watching this show as a kid. Both the original and reboot are soooooo hilarious! I love it! I do agree there are parts better than others but that won't stop me from enjoying it. My favorite has to be Warners Unbound because as an Odyssey fan, I both loved and hated it. Not to mention, "I'm gonna eat ya~"

    I really enjoy this reboot. The only episode I dislike is the one with all of the Russia jokes. That bit just went on for too long, and I felt like I was watching something from the Cold War because of how much the episode was trying to push that bit.

    As a person who was born on the eastern side of the german wall, "Animanyet" was simply the best part. I mean Wakkovs song about the Russian Territories was so good.

    I tried to go into this series as spoilerfree as possible. I saw probably five seconds of the trailer and some pictures (i actually missed the premiere because of this). When i made my Hulu Account (yes i made it just for this), i saw that they use the original voice actors. I was hyped because of that, but started it with very low expectations. There were just too many Reboots where you got the feeling that they respect the Dollars more than the show. I was actually wondering if the same VAs can give me the same kind of energy like 20+ years before. I mean they get older and with Robs illness. HOW STUPID FROM ME TO QUESTION THIS. The opening started and it was pure magic. There surely were some things they weren't too good. I can understand the critics of the order of the segments. I personally think it's good that they focused on the main and most popular character. Forcing in STORY for the others in just 13 episodes would be very hard. Who knows what Season 2 will bring. The other segments (The alien and the dark one) were not necessary and shouldn't have been there. Instead they should have brought in a classic segment (Good Idea, bad idea as example). Personally i disliked how clean and polished the songs sound. They are awesome, but they sound so studiomade. But to be fair, Animaniacs 2020 is simply great. After a long and exhausting 2020 (for several reasons), this was something i really needed. Something that gives you the energy to finally enjoy stuff again. Sorry for all the "I" sentences, i'm not english and it's 3 AM in the morning ;)

    My complaint is even though Yakko, Wakko, and Dot haven't changed, their behavior are a bit even times worse here. Just like the movies and shows of 2016 (few), 2017 (few), 2018 (big), 2019 (much bigger), and this year (way bigger), the characters are starting to become UNLIKABLE than ever. And despite the original actors being back, they are starting to sound worse for their old age. Yakko sounds like one of the familiar old characters we know today and he's tending to yell a lot, Wakko's voice hasn't changed since the end of the original, and Dot sounds too much more like Daisy Duck, as opposed to her original high-pitched voice. They're still funny, but they're more UNLIKABLE here. Back when old things, including the times I overcome my fears over those that I was uncomfortable with, were very LIKABLE and LOVABLE.

    With the exception of Brain feeling more malicious than previously portrayed, I agree that P&tB feel more like their original run. Overall, the show never had me rolling in the aisles, but it didn't feel bad. Some stuff may've fallen flat for me because maybe they brought up a subject I hear people (on either side) complain about, and the humor ran dry. And their "bun control" episode didn't feel like an effective allegory. OK KO: Let's Be Heroes I think did a better job.

    The reason why Yakko, Wakko and Dot are different is because of the writing. They seem to be less zany and less wacky. Less funny.

    Disturbing fact: The reason there’s no Episode 6 is because in the Pinky and the Brain segment, they poked fun at commercials and even ended with Brain telling you to call a real phone number (it was real by accident). It was removed because if you called that phone number, it would you to... well... let’s say a very specific inappropriate hotline.

    I like that they did a Pinky and the Brain segment addressing the edgy fan theory that Pinky is the genius and he’s been deliberately sabotaging Brain. There are so many dark and cynical theories about fun shows. I’m sick of fan theories that take magical shows and say things like ‘The main character is actually perfectly normal and this is all a coma dream.’ The Animanicas reboot said, we see your theory but nope! It’s wrong. Besides, anyone who watched the original properly would have known that. Pinky was willing to sell his soul so that the Brain could rule the world and that’s just one example. As Brain said, “You know what? I will take your unthinking loyalty over intellectual cynicism any day.”

    I was so excited when I learned the show was coming back! I haven't finished all 13 episodes yet, but I've greatly enjoyed what I've seen. The first episode is such a perfect introduction to how they intend to handle this new series. And I agree with your thought that the show was intended to come sooner. There are a lot of moments and jokes that feel like they should coincide with what's happened throughout the year that won't be quite as funny or relevant in a couple of years. But there's still so much timeless humor that should put this new show on par with the classic.

  • Cy Husser

    They're bringing in Slappy and everyone else for season 2. They didn't want to "overwhelmed" folks by having too many characters for season 1, or possibly dragging focus away from the Warner Siblings. It's also unclear where season 2 will be premiering on, as the deal with Hulu was struck before HBO Max was really going to be a thing. But now that Warner has Max there's a good change they'll want to move it over there.

    I've watched the whole thing twice now and my main bitch is the lack of more classic characters (which I understand) and to me it seems like Tress MacNeil is kind of over it. I just don't feel the same enthusiasm coming from her compared to Rob and Jess. Just my opinion...

  • SuperStachey eightnineeightnine
    SuperStachey eightnineeightnineMuaj më parë

    Honestly, I wasn't much a fan of the show. Maybe it's because I miss the the old characters, or how some of the jokes felt like low-hanging fruit, it didn't hold as much of an edge for me. I feel like there's been such a gap between Animaniacs 1993 and now, that all sorts of other cartoons have followed their lead and done different things with the medium, whether it be with contemporary matters or meta-humor. All I could think of in the "Bun Control" episode was "Huh, reminds me a lot of 'Let's Not Be Skeletons' from OK KO.", for example, and I wasn't quite as shocked at seeing Dwayne LaPistol flooding the Warner Lot with bunnies. Or seeing the Animaniacs confront a Russian rip-off of themselves just reminded me of "The Copycats" from The Amazing World of Gumball. If I had to compare it to something, it's like how the Shenmue series practically jumpstarted a video game genre, but after decades of people taking inspiration and coming up with new ideas for it, once Shenmue 3 came up, whatever they had to offer was outdated and even contradictory to how it used to be. That being said, there were still parts I liked here and there. I thought the bit where they made fun of Seth Meyers was kind of funny, and the bit with 'Nickelwise' was hilarious.

    I loved it, as much as I did when I was younger. Though one or two nitpicks with it, such as the siblings being a liiiiiiittle more snappy with one another, and I don't mean witty, but bitchy. Such as the "you'd know about taking credit wouldn't you, Mr Countries of the Wold song" which was a genuine funny line, perfect delivery as expected (the cast may have gotten older but they're still hitting darn near every syllable like the pros they are) just unexpected from the Warners. I'm too used to them turning their wit on everyone else and propping one another up 100% like loving siblings.

    I’m someone who didn’t grow up with the original Animaniacs (because the original show started and ended before I was born) so I personally didn’t have a nostalgic attachment to the original series however I did watch a good amount of the original series so I can get a general idea on the original series but for the new show I honestly adore the new series! I think the best thing in the show is where Dot sings about Cartoon rights and legit a lot of old school shows (like the Flintstones, Looney Tunes, and Hanna Barbara) which is probably the best shit out there!

    I was really really worried it would seem dated idk why I was watching the old show and weirdly I personally didn’t feel it held up to well. But I ended up really liking this new version. So confession time I never really cared for any of the segments outside of the Warner sibling (blame my hyperfixation on yakko) so to me it felt just how I normally watched the show except I wasn’t fast forwarding everything. I was really surprised how much I enjoyed it. Really loved the anime segment and would have loved to see it go in longer but that was one of my favorite episodes along with the hunter one for obvious reasons, and I also really liked the Halloween one.

    Some of those later segments I could see getting more serialized like Slappy Squirrel and the Goodfeathers were tbh. Like the one with the little girl and the alien could have something like Tiny Toons’ Elmyra segments. I do hope they’re able to get more of the old serial characters back, especially bc it did feel formulaic in structure by the end of the season, but I still loved this. If only all cartoon reboots could have as much love as this one so clearly got.

    "Where's Slappy Squirrel? The Goodfeathers? Rita & Runt?" The very 3 I wanted back the most. This show falls flat for me due to the lack of variety from the original. It feels like a job half done. It has the same pop culture references & "it's current day" jokes that I hated in the Rocko's Modern Life movie. At least the Invader Zim movie had the decency to act as if no time had passed at all.
