So who has gotten the ANIMANIACS theme song stuck in their head since hearing this news?
IndieWire reports an Animaniacs reboot is in the early phases of development over at Amblin TV and Warner Bros., with Steven Spielberg producing. The show has enjoyed a fresh wave of success after making its debut on Netflix, so it’s not much of a surprise to hear it could be getting a new lease on life. The show featured enduring characters such as Pinky and the Brain, and is one of those rare shows to crossover and appeal to kids and young adults — so you’d imagine there’s even more of a market for it in today’s nostalgia-fest.
There’s no word on where the new version could air, but it stands to reason a lot of networks would be interested. Not to mention Netflix, which is reaping the benefits of the original run right now.

You knew one day it would come. Somewhere down the road once the PS4 was no longer an unproven system and Sony was well into creating a new catalog, the previous system would finally cease to be. Today is that day as the PS3 has officially stopped production in Japan.
The announcement was made on the Japanese PlayStation site saying that no new units will be manufactured, so any currently being made in the United States will soon follow. Sony said it would support the console for ten years as it was being released back in 2006, and it appears they kept that promise, despite the Xbox 360 (it’s leading competitor at the time) stopped being made back in April 2016. The system has sold over 80 million units to date and remains one of the most popular gaming systems ever made, even though it can’t compare in numbers to the total sold for the PS2 (155 million) in its heyday.

If there’s one thing that’s truer now in this world than it was even in 1987, when the original Spaceballs hit theaters, it’s this: we’re surrounded by ***holes. So, perhaps, it’s fitting that MGM is in talks with Mel Brooks to finally bring the long-awaited sequel, Spaceballs 2: The Search For More Money , to theaters.
