One of the nice things about the holiday season is that cartoon networks all celebrate the occasion by airing holiday specials or holiday-themed episodes of their hit series. The Hub has recently laid their cards down on the table by revealing their exciting holiday programming plans.

Biggest news is the return of the popular Spielberg animated series Animaniacs, which went off the air last 1999.

This will be followed by a holiday-themed musical feature called Animaniacs: Wakko’s Wish at 8 to 10 PM. Afterwards, the show will continue on the network’s regular schedule in 2013 via the Monday, 3p timeslot.
