More good news as the greatest animated duo of all-time are coming back!

Yes, Pinky and the Brain are returning to take over the world once more… to prove their mousey worth.

Hulu are bringing back Pinky and the Brain and the Animaniacs (sorry, but it’s all about Pinky and the Brain here are FTN HQ)
later this year, after their initial debut 27 years after its TV debut.

Star Rob Paulsen – Yakko in the Animaniacs has confirmed that he, Jess Harnell (Wakko) and Tress MacNeille (Dot) are all coming back as well as his return to the iconic role of Pinky alongside the amazing Maurice LaMarche as the Brain.

“It’s impossible to quantify what a compliment that is,” Paulsen says.

“Moreover, to be able to do that again, with Maurice, with Tress, with Jess. Yakko, Wakko, and Dot are back and so are Pinky and the Brain. Moreover is that in this era of celebrities doing a lot of animated characters — and I get why the producers do it. I totally get it — but I also know that just having a movie star do the talking chicken doesn’t mean that the show’s going to be a hit. You’ve got to have a good script, great characters, and terrific actors, whether they’re celebrities or not.”


That’s all we have for now… but we’ll be scouring the internet, magazines, sewers, wherever for more news and as soon as we have it, we’ll report straight back to you, same thing we do every night.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
