The deal includes streaming rights to the back catalog of Animaniacs cartoons, as well as the whole family of related shows like Pinky and the Brain, Tiny Toon Adventures, and the short-lived Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain (but, alas, seemingly not the brilliant and amazing Freakazoid).
"We cannot wait to work with Steven Spielberg and the entire Amblin and Warner Bros. teams to bring more sketches, catchphrases, songs and laughs from the Animaniacs to kids and adults everywhere," Craig Erwich, senior vp content at Hulu, said Thursday in a statement. "Now one of the most beloved, inventive and funny animated franchises in history, Animaniacs and its cast of witty characters can live on, on Hulu. This marks yet another big move for us as we continue our efforts to be the No. 1 streaming destination for premium animated content."
