It's time to school the newer generations all about the awesome cartoons of the '90s and what better way to do it than with an Animaniacs reboot?

Just as Thursday was coming to an end, the popular '90s show began making headlines. To everyone's surprise (and by everyone we mean millennials), the cartoon is getting a two-season revival picked up by Hulu.

Animaniacs, which aired on Fox Kids (1993 - 1995) and The WB (1995 - 1998), was a variety show with short skits and a large cast. The most popular cartoon stars were Yakko Warner, Wakko Warner, and Dot Warner, three siblings from the '30s who were locked away in the Warner Bros. water tower until the '90s when they escaped.

The revival was courtesy of Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation. New episodes will premiere on Hulu in 2020.

“Yakko, Wakko, and Dot have been waiting impatiently inside the water tower, and now their hilarious brand of animated chaos will be unleashed — again! 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,” saidSam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series. “Parents who grew up with the cartoon now have new episodes to share with their own families.”

The deal also includes the beloved spin-off series': Pinky and the Brain; Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain; and Tiny Toon Adventures.

Oh, 2018! What a time to be alive!
