Series dropped today on Hulu. The first episode was free on Twitter but it already expired! Managed a watch. It was so good. Like there was a void in my life and suddenly it was filled. Felt like the show never left. Yeah, there's some issues, and sadly it seems they're ignoring the Elmyra spin-off, but the show is back baby!

Here's the new theme:



Ralph's new colors really stick out and not in a good way! That aside, I love it a lot! "The trolls will say we're so passe, but we did meta first." Ain't that the truth. I miss the side characters in the theme. :(

Trailer for the third... and final season:



Bummer. :( The lack of variety probably hurt the show and was a factor. What made the original series wasn't just the Warners or even Pinky and the Brain but the true unpredictability of any and every episode. Such a waste ignoring dozens of characters. My personal favorite is Slappy Squirrel but there's so many others and I'm sad they were never revisited.

Yeah, I agree. My three favorites were the GoodFeathers, Chicken Boo and Katy-Kaboom! :)

There was a whole episode where they did random mash-ups of characters; this was the best one HANDS DOWN! :o

You can’t just have your characters announce how they feel! That makes me feel angry!

Chicken Boo. He didn’t act like the other chickens do.

It’s apparently ending because Hulu is about to lose the streaming rights to the franchise.

Hopefully there's no cliffhanger and it ends on a high note.

Although I miss the "grungy" aspect of the original series' film print masters, it’s good to see the actual artistry is almost exactly the same as the first time around. If only the Hulu show followed others by being made available via Star on D+ here… :(

Or a Sky deal or something. Maybe after it ends.

Maybe. I’m surprised Sky haven’t had it either, seeing as they do have an HBO deal and we get a lot/most of that programming. Sure it’ll pop up somewhere down the line…
