The trailer for the final season of Hulu’s Animaniacs revival is as zany as fans have come to expect as it parodies plenty of major franchises.

The trailer for Hulu’s Animaniacs Season 3, the final installment of the popular revival series, showcases plenty of zany hijinks, parodies and cheeky asides to the audience.

The video focuses on the eponymous trio of Yakko, Wakko and Dot as they attempt to escape from their water tower home and embark on all new adventures. The siblings are aware that their latest animated series is coming to an end and are thus doing their best to squeeze in as many whacky adventures as possible before the credits role. Pinky and The Brain share the spotlight with the Animaniacs as the duo of laboratory mice concocts a range of new plans to take over the world.

As for the kind of adventures audiences can expect from Animaniacs Season 3, the show’s synopsis teased a wide variety of escapades. “The Warner siblings must battle their way out of a video game, learn the secrets of being a teen influencer, and escape a mad scientist’s island all while finding time to teach us about the threat of global warming!” reads the official description.

Having been arguably one of the most iconic and influential cartoons of the 1990s, Animaniacs was created by Tom Ruegger and boasted Hollywood icon Steven Spielberg as an executive producer. Known for its outlandish stories and characters, Warner Bros.’ animated series managed to find an audience amongst both children and adults with its biting satire of the entertainment industry and the world at large. The original series ran for five seasons before ultimately being canceled as Warner Bros. chose to focus less on original programming.

Hulu’s revival, which premiered in 2020, managed to strike a similar tone and earned positive reviews from critics and fans alike. Animaniacs continued to impress with its second season although some fans felt the continuation skewered too heavily toward an older audience with its emphasis on slightly edgy humor, most notably when Pinky and The Brain were involved. “Our writers are coming from a Rick and Morty-ized place, if I may throw out another show. Comedy has gotten a little edgier in the last 20 years…” explained star Maurice LaMarche.

Animaniacs Season 3 premieres on Hulu on Feb. 17. Seasons 1 and 2 are currently available on the service.
