"Animaniacs" is coming to Hulu, Variety has learned.

Hulu announced on Thursday the return of Animaniacs, the treasured 90s slapstick cartoon.

In the meantime, the entire original "Animaniacs" series - which ran on The WB from 1993 through 1998 - is available now on the streaming service, as are its spinoff shows "Pinky and the Brain" and "Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain", as well as the "Tiny Toon Adventures" series. Recently, Hulu has been putting out original content for the younger, nerd culture friendly crowd such as the Seth Rogen-produced Future Man and the Marvel-backed Runaways.

Hulu will be teaming with Amblin Television and Warner Bros.

Yakko, Wakko and Dot are ready to break out of the Warner Bros. They have been locked away in the Warner Bros. water tower for a very long time, but they have found a way to escape. Based on the art released by Hulu, which you can see below, it looks like the revival will include fan-favorite characters Pinky and the Brain.

The Warner brothers, Yakko and Wakko, and the Warner sister, Dot - three inseparable, irascible siblings - have a great time wreaking havoc and mayhem in the lives of everyone they meet.

Hulu inked a deal that guarantees two new seasons of the insane adventures of the characters on the streaming platform. Steven Spielberg will reprise his role as an executive producer for the series, which kicks off in 2020. "We're incredibly excited to be partnering with Amblin and Hulu for new episodes of Animaniacs, filled with endless laughs - and ongoing plots for world domination by Pinky and the Brain", said Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Key to the reboots is having the original producers involved, which is the case with Spielberg, Warner Animation and Amblin for Animaniacs. "This marks yet another big move for us as we continue our efforts to be the #1 streaming destination for premium animated content".

"I am so pleased and proud that "Animaniacs" will have a home at Hulu", Spielberg said.
