'Animaniacs' Reboot is in the Works, Steven Spielberg Reportedly Involved

Famous Animaniacs characters like Pinky and the Brain were given long skits during the initial Animaniacs episodes, and the two lab mice became so popular that they tried to take over the world with their own show. Animaniacs included some gangster-talking bird characters known as the Goodfeathers, a couple of whom were clearly modeled after Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci's characters in Goodfellas - a movie I didn't see until years later. This, in turn, has allowed Animaniacs to remain a favorite among young adults who grew up watching the show today - an audience that will no doubt have something to say about this reboot of the franchise.
