Animaniacs unintentionally reboots mocks Snyder’s cut of Justice League


The first episode of Hulu Animaniacs‘Revival contains a character who appears to be a mockery of the Snyder Cut from Justice League. This is not surprising given the original Animaniacs was infamous for satirizing Hollywood in general and Warner Bros. in particular, but in this case the parody appears to be entirely accidental.

First broadcast in 1993 as part of Fox Kids’ afternoon programming, Animaniacs largely centered on the antics of the Warners, Yakko, Wakko and Dot; three unidentifiable inkblot cartoon characters from the 1930s, which were sealed inside the Warner Bros. studio water tower. because their meta-humor-fueled cartoons made no sense to the post-ban audience. The three escaped confinement about five decades later and hilarity ensued. The reboot is based on the same concept and the first episode sees the Warners return to their old home as they discuss their big comeback online after 22 years of being out of the spotlight.

This leads the Warners in a song about how Hollywood is running out of original ideas and how, when they can no longer do sequels or prequels on a beloved property, they ” restart it, renew it, restart it, redo it and reuse it. “After listing some of the many beloved sitcoms and animated shows that have recently been revamped (including Looney Tunes and Duck tales), the Warners repeat the chorus by assembling a hideous creature, similar to Frankenstein’s monster, who vomits money. The creature is made up of a variety of discarded parts, all of which appear to be from various members of the Justice League, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Black Canary, Cyborg, and Aquaman.

Animaniacs reboot pokes fun at Justice League Snyder Cup

Since this episode was written in 2018, it was likely a reference to the theatrical cut of Justice League. The film was infamous in the end thanks to a number of repeats using as much of the previously shot footage as possible, in order to have a movie ready for the 2017 holiday season. And yet the view gag applies. also good to the Snyder cut of Justice League, which cost Warner Bros. An additional $ 70 million to date on top of the $ 300 million spent on the original film.

The irony about it Justice League jab is doubly thick considering the episode opened with a song detailing everything the Warners had missed in the 20 years since the original. Animaniacs ended and a meta note they had missed even more considering the two years between when the episode was written in 2018 and its airing. This led the Warners to guess that everyone was now living in underground bunkers and had to stay completely silent for fear of angering the polar bears who took over the world. Although they were wrong about polar bears, their prediction that ” we don’t leave our homes, thanks to Amazon drones“Seems oddly prophetic given the COVID-19 pandemic.
