Jurassic Lark[]

[First lines of the reboot series, the Jurassic Park jeep pulls up, and Alan takes his hat off and pulls off his sunglasses and sees something]
Dr. Ellie Sattler: [holding an animated cel of the Animaniacs] Alan, this species of cartoon has been extinct since 1998. I mean these haven't been seen on TV since the golden era of animation! [Alan turns her head with his hand] What? [shocked and pulls off his sunglasses to stare in wonder what Alan is looking at]
[From afar, the camera sees what appears to be a shadow of a brontosaurus, but it then morphs into three separate shadows. The Warner siblings prance towards them, gleaming in the sun]
The Warner Siblings: ♪ La! ♪
[Alan and Ellie get out to investigate]
Dr. Alan Grant: It's the Warner Brothers!
Dot: [from far away] And the Warner Sister!
Steven Spielberg: [parodying the role of Richard Attenborough's John Hammond, he laughs to himself at their reactions] That's - Yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
Dr. Ian Malcolm: [seated in the Jeep behind them] He-He did it. That, that, that, that crazy son-of-a-gun actually did it.
Alan: [holds up Wakko] Clean, vectored outlines. [holds up Yakko] Widescreen format.
Ellie: [holding up Dot] These don't look like reruns.
[Dot grabs Ellie's nose and trumpet horns come out her ears; the Warners scamper away]
Steven: Well, they're not. [Dot carries him over to Alan and Ellie] I reanimated them.
Hulu Executive: [to himself] We are gonna make a fortune with this show.
[Dot holds up a cream pie and the Warner Brothers run away]
Alan: How zany are they?
Steven: Oh, to the max. [Alan is immediately hit with Dot's cream pie] Of course, then there's Pinky and The Brain.
Ellie: Pinky and The Brain? You said you're bringing back Pinky and The Brain?
Steven: Mm-hmm.
Alan: [grabs Steven by the shoulder] Say it again.
Steven: [smiles] We're bringing back Pinky and The Brain.
[At the sound of this, Alan hunches over, dizzy]
Ellie: Put your head between your knees.
[Alan collapses anyway]
The Warner Siblings: [bounce away into the sunlight] Boingy, boingy, boingy, boingy!
Ellie: Where are they going?
Steven: Home. Welcome to Animaniacs!
Ellie: [spanks Alan's face several times] Wake up!

Theme Song[]

[The intro begins with a shot of the Warner Bros.' water tower. The camera zooms in to the shield of tower, of which the Warners open while singing and jump out.]

Yakko, Wakko and Dot: It's time for Animaniacs and we're zany to the max

[Instead of tickling Dr. Scratchansniff, the Warners tickle a napping Ralph, with Yakko pulling the chair away to send him crashing into the floor].

Yakko, Wakko and Dot: So just sit back and relax. You'll laugh till you collapse.

[The show's title appears with them singing]

Yakko, Wakko and Dot: We're Animaniacs!

Yakko and Wakko walk in a silly way along the Warner Bros.' studio lot while Dot hops in.]

Yakko and Wakko: Come join the Warner Brothers

Dot: And the Warner Sister Dot

[The siblings do a double take and run with Ralph the Guard chasing them with a net]

The Warners: Just for fun, we run around the Warner movie lot.

[Ralph locks the Warners in the water tower, but they appear on his head under his hat]

Yakko, Wakko and Dot: They lock us in the tower, whenever we get caught.

[They run away outside the lot.]

Yakko, Wakko and Dot: But we break loose, and then vamoose, and now you know the plot!

[They are hit by the show's title with them singing again]
