I am well aware that it would be near impossible in THIS day and age to pull off the humor they got away with back then, but if we find the proper people, I feel this could work. I can't help but feel sorry for these 1930's anachronisms known as the Warner Brothers and Sister had to miss out on the 21st century, while WB is falling flat on their face trying to reinvent and reboot probably the only two franchises they have left, wasting money on these new half-baked DTV movies. Not to mention DTA is preparing a DuckTales reboot next year which is being hyped big time. Just like how Sega turned to Christian Whitehead to develop Sonic Mania, I would turn to the one internet celebrity who time and again has professed his love for the original show and has also hobnobbed with quite a couple of the original voice actors: the Nostalgia Critic himself, Doug Walker. His own web series is just as irreverent and comedic as the original series, in my opinion, and I believe Walker would do a perfect job as a showrunner; since most reboots seem to succeed with passionate fans of the source material, it would be a crime to NOT include Walker into some part of the production, either screenwriter, director, producer, consultant, anything. Dave Alvarez would be a perfect art director/character designer, and Mark Christiansen would also serve the show well. Joanna Davidovich, I want to make animation director, Eric Goldberg as animation supervisor/director, and Mark Kausler could be the one to redesign Yakko, Wakko, and Dot, given his preference for the 1930s style cartoons. If an emotional episode needs to come into play, another great director would be Andy Beall(Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown). As I am aware that it would upset the fans of the original, I feel like Kristen Li(PPG 2016) would make a perfect Dot; her take on Bubbles is a little more assertive than the original Bubbles by Tara Strong. Since I find that Tress MacNeile and Kristen Li sound similar, would anyone really notice if Li voiced Dot rather than Tress? I feel Li would slip into the role of Dot like a glove, not only successfully replicating the voice, but redefining it, given that her voice stays the same if an actual reboot were greenlit. As much as I'm aware she was never a prominent or well-received character in the Animaniacs universe, for a potential reboot, I feel that maybe Minerva would have better reception if she had a more Spongebob-esque personality, as opposed to her predecessor's narcissistic personality. Lately, girls in modern animation have taken on either a Wildstyle-esque attitude or a Mabel-esque attitude, or Star-esque attitude. Minerva in the old show was nothing but a sex symbol, an object, and proud of it; a trophy wife, if you will, whose only major priorities were her looks, and maintaining her looks, and using her looks to attract the hottest guy possible. Compared to Kitty Katswell of TUFF Puppy, she's a selfish misanthrope beneath all the curves and makeup. And that is what got her kicked off the original show after two episodes. My hypothetical version of Minerva would take many of the traits presented in characters like Wander and Spongebob and imbue them with her character; traits like loyalty, optimism, kindness, geekiness, stubbornness, generosity, and Star's hyperactivity. Somewhere along the lines of Bessie Higgenbottom, or Be Cool Scooby Doo's Daphne. Or pair her with a more active female lead with those qualities, that way, she could be presented as being more human and relatable, similar to Bugs and Daffy. The point is, that I want her to do SOMETHING on screen rather than treat herself like an object. By making her less shallow, I feel that audiences will be able to sympathize with and care for her, placing less focus on her looks and beauty, and more on how she handles situations and her relationships with other characters, as well as present some positive aspects of her character. You see tons of girls doing a lot more than shopping nowadays in cartoons, why not her? I understand that she was materialistic so it's easier to laugh at her when she loses herself just staring at a hot guy, jewelry, or money. But she becomes easy to hate when those traits are supposed to be the main focus for over 7 minutes. She's kind of materialistic in most of the comics I've read featuring her. I've been thinking lately, of pairing Minerva with Dot Warner in this reboot, so we can display how materialistic and negative a role model Minerva is compared to Yakko. Yakko and his siblings were rabble-rousers and proud of it, but at least he never told Dot to treat herself like an object to be ogled over. Compared to Minerva, Yakko might be considered more of a positive role model. Suppose Minerva played a scout leader of a troop of girl scouts, which Dot happens to be in. This could present Dot as a straight-man to Minerva's materialistic and vain behavior, skewing classic girl scout activities like taking care of the elderly, taking care of nature, and survival quests, all day long, just selling cookies and looking cute. We would then see how Yakko is a more positive influence on Dot than Minerva, as we see Dot taking control of many situations in the same way her brother might, rather than Minerva, who'd rather sit back and tend to her image. The way this plot would play out, Dot would angrily remind Minerva that this troop is the worst troop in all of scouting, showing off their image to guys and shopping rather than actually earning badges. This would play on Minerva's insecurity and force her to make an effort to prove herself a capable leader. The aim here is to expand Minerva's role in the Animaniacs universe, maybe evolve her into Yakko's substitute or number 2, but then this is probably wishful thinking. I also hope that this reboot will integrate the characters into other mediums of animation, to excercise their recognizability, test story limits, and make the show more visually interesting. Aside from the obvious hand-drawn traditional animation featured, the show will also use claymation, stop-motion, toonboom harmony/Adobe character animate cc, anime and maybe even faux-Pixar CGI. Give Yakko, Wakko and Dot a new visual playground to play in. Sort of reminiscent of 2011's MAD or The Amazing World of Gumball. My main hope is, that I want to receive another installment with these characters and rejuvenate people's interest in them, sort of an apology for Teen Titans Go.
