It’s time for the Animanicast! Discussing the first episode of the reboot!
The Animaniacs reboot has finally arrived and the hosts of the Animanicast can’t wait to talk about it! Animaniacs returns with an updated theme song, new songs with the Warners, and a new Pinky and the Brain segment. There’s lots of references to discuss and some new things to enjoy. How many water towers will this all new episode get?
Steven Spielberg (as John Hammond) comes out to tell the cast of Jurassic Park that he’s “reanimated” the Warners. The trio jumps around a bit before starting the new theme song.
Updated Theme Song
The theme song is back but with new lyrics. Dot has wit and there are no lyrics about any new characters. The hosts talk about Dot not being referenced as cute in the song even though her cuteness is referenced in the series.
Suspended Animation (Parts 1 and 2)
The Warners return to the lot with no explanation as to where they’ve been for the past 22 years. Nathan shares some theories. Two songs are sung, one deals with the Warners’ need to be updated on the latest trends and the other deals with reboots.
Of Mice and Memes
The Brain seeks to hypnotize the world using a hypnotic message on an internet video featuring the Brain dressed as a baby. But a video of Brain getting hurt repeatedly proves to be more popular. Will they be able to take over the world this time? No spoilers!
