They can at least bring Cree Summer back as Mary Melody, another character she voiced on the show. Plus, it would good for representation and diversity.

Isn't it a bit soon to make that kind of sweeping decree? I wonder why they'd come out and say No Elmyra in the same breath that they announced the show. Show's not even out yet.

One would think that if enough people say that they want to see the character, she may well be included. Although I can't wait to hear what WB's reasoning for excluding her would be.

I've heard some say that nowadays she is very unpopular because she has been known for animal cruelty. There are plenty of people who don't like seeing stuff like that in TV shows or films.

If that's true, seems like a dumb reason to remove her. She was still a core cast member, not to mention the Elmer Fudd of the gang. Now who's going to play that role?

This is great. So happy it’s not a streaming exclusive. Maybe they’ll appear in the new Space Jam. It’d be cool if they got their own version. Within the show I mean. Not a separate movie.

Wonder if they’re getting a new theme song or just update like Ducktales.

No Elmyra is strange. I have not kept up with the fan side so don’t know how popular she is. We’ll see what their reason is. She wasn’t my favorite but I didn’t mind her. Still excited though.

I also imagine Warner have never really forgiven Elmyra for tanking Speilberg's animation dynasty with the final season of Pinky and the Brain

Well Elmyra was the only character from the show to be included in "IGN's Top Cartoon Characters from the 90s", but that's just IGN.

I mean it's weird enough that a majority of the cast of characters from the original Animaniacs are not going to be in the reboot. I don't see them getting away with that with Tiny Toons since the cast of characters were what made the original show memorable. I'd argue more so than most of the cast of Animaniacs. You weren't just watching it for Buster and Babs or Plucky, you'd watch it for Hampton, Elmyra, Montana Max, Furball, Sweetie, Sneezer, Little Beeper, Calamity, etc.

I have a feeling if there's enough demand, some characters from Animaniacs like Slappy, Mindy and Buttons, will eventually get added in a later season if the show lasts long. I'm not sure if the new Animaniacs will be able to pull off keeping the original characters away from the show but I don't think Tiny Toons will be able to pull that off well.

Since Plucky and Hampton's original voice actors have passed, I'm sure they could easily find replacements. Anyone that can do a good Daffy or Porky voice could easily fit the roles. Maybe Eric Bauza or Billy West as them respectively.

Oh, such a horrible animal cruelty over cartoon animals in a cartoon TV show!!
So many kids were traumatized by that (nonsense)!!
We need to form a committee to ban cartoon violence in cartoons, because, it might hurt GENERATIONS of the poor innocent dumb kids and turn them into violent maniacas!!
