Animaniacs is a TV series that served as a follow-up to Tiny Toon Adventures. Characters from Tiny Toons would make occasional cameos on the show as well as references to it appearing in certain episodes. Since production on the Tiny Toons television series had ceased production by the time Animaniacs was on the air, characters from Animaniacs only cameoed in the specials Tiny Toon Spring Break and Tiny Toons' Night Ghoulery. In 2013, the series aired on The Hub until its transition into Discovery Family a year later. In 2018, Hulu picked up the rights to the series, and a reboot of the series premiered two years later.
