Thankfully it's not actually an idiotic "reboot". It is simply
continuing the series after a pause.

Steven Spielberg will return as the executive producer of
the series, with Sam Register, President, Warner Bros.
Animation and Warner Digital Series, and Amblin Television
Co-Presidents Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank also serving
as executive producers.
The Warner brothers, Yakko and Wakko, and the Warner sister,
Dot have a great time wreaking havoc and mayhem. For a very
long time, they've been locked away in the Warner Bros.
water tower. However, now they've found a way to escape, so
they do it - every day! Causing chaos and comic confusion,
Yakko, Wakko, and Dot run loose in the city, turning the
world into their personal playground. The fan-favorite
characters Pinky and the Brain will also return to make
appearances in each episode.
After first announcing the new series, Hulu and Warner Bros.
Domestic Television Distribution also revealed that Hulu will
be the show's exclusive partner. This means they'll get to
air the complete library of all 99 episodes of the original
Animaniacs. Of course, that also includes Pinky and the
Brain, the subsequent Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain, and the
complete Tiny Toon Adventures collection. As of today, Hulu
subscribers can watch their favorite moments from the
original series with the entire family.
The original series made its television debut in 1993 and
went on to become one of the most popular animated series for
children. Since its premiere, the series has launched various
spin-offs including the beloved Pinky and the Brain. The show
also managed to set the record for most Daytime Emmy Awards
in the field of Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction
and Composition for any animated series, winning three times.
With its balance of humor, education and pop culture
references, Animaniacs also garnered a huge adult fan
following. Award-winning songs like "Yakko's World" and
"Wakko's America" continue to educate audiences and remain
fan favorites among both adults and children.
Animaniacs is set for a November 20 premiere date on Hulu!
