It’s revolting but it drives me crazy that people are tagging Warner Bros only. HULU is making the Animaniacs reboot, WB Animation is producing.

Thanks, Moonbeam, for addressing this latest WB blow. I hope all these on-line attacks are not detracting from Johnny’s legal team’s ability to put together an Appeal Notice (due tomorrow) that gets him the permission he requires to fie an Appeal of Nicol’s 11/02/20 Judgement.

Writer Brian Polk has been whining that this is just a reboot of a first (?) 2018 episode. So somehow this cowardly “dad” must have made the conscious decision that victim shaming a DV survivor and labeling him a liar was ok in 2018 and was still fine in 2020 despite the volumes of evidence proving otherwise.


Yes, Newt, hulu deserves to be publicly admonished also. Can’t we do without access to this stuff in our daily lives? Are we all so shallow? The ONLY thing that will eventually start to hit home with all these hypocritical entities is when the declining profits margins start keeping them up at night - cause it sure isn’t going to be their consciences.

The animaniacs victim shaming is disgusting. Corporate smear jobs are evil in ways that an impassioned psycho just doesn't possess.

The ties to Elisabeth Murdoch (Rupert's daughter), Warner Bros and her animation company Locksmith came out rapidly. I think animator Katie Rice is probably a big player. There is an article in MS that mentions her feminist activism. She talks about the formation of #MeToon and "It began with the creation of a secure whisper-network" (a private Facebook group).

Rice is profiled here and identified as the director of Animaniacs at Warner and Hulu

The MS. article is at

And how much courage does a "Courageous Feminist" need to defame and victim shame an innocent man in a kids cartoon? Scum.

It is just all so shocking - the endless connections and the attacks from all sides on JD. But more shocking is that this is going on against a tidal wave of support for him - and yet still NGN and their supporters continue this nonsense. I couldn't bring myself to do it before but I've just read the 600+ comments on the Sun's tweet about a DV victim being upset with Dior for keeping Johnny. Every single comment bar two that I've read are 1000 percent against the Sun story. This is surely unsustainable to go so far against what the public thinks.

So delighted that Dior have put out a new teaser with Johnny's voice (and lovely hands) for their new refill product. I assume it is new - hadn't heard it until today - and I do hope Dior are listening to all the people saying they are buying Sauvage for the first time because of this.

I'm not sure if this has been seen in the media yet!

Katie Rice

Director, Animaniacs, Warner Bros. Animation/Hulu

Next time someone tells you that you’ve got to go to one of the usual prestigious schools to get a career in animation, remember the example set by brilliant director Katie Rice, who is currently working on the new Animaniacs series from Warner Bros. Animation. The Marin County native tried to get into CalArts twice, but when she didn’t get in the second time, she decided to move to L.A. and look for animation work. “I failed, so I moved back home, saved up money from waitressing, and then tried again! The second time stuck,” says Rice.

Rice, who has worked on shows such as El Tigre and DC Super Hero Girls and the feature The Book of Life, says she has always been in love with all things Disney as long as she has been conscious. Then, she adds, “But when I was about nine years old and the original Nicktoons debuted, I knew I wanted to make art like that myself!

“My first job was inking traditionally and doing other odd jobs at a small independent studio,” Rice recalls. “That was about 20 years ago, when inking was still done on paper!”Now that she’s working on the reboot of Animaniacs, she finds the enthusiasm and the collaboration of her team quite wonderful. “This is one of the best crews I’ve worked with,” she admits. “I feel like I’m surrounded by super-talents who are also incredibly nice. It’s very inspiring and makes coming into work easy, despite the challenges of working on a show as big as this.”

Of course, adapting to the cinematic quality of a Spielberg-produced cartoon has its own challenges. “It can be a bit intimidating, especially for someone who is used to working in a flatter, more traditional comedic style. But overcoming artistic challenges is extremely rewarding, and I do feel like working on Animaniacs has allowed me to level up as an artist!”

When asked about her idols, Rise says, “I have always looked up to Lynne Naylor, whose drawings are just so full of life and appeal, and Mary Blair for being so talented that she was impossible to ignore, even during the ink-and-paint-girl days. Right now, ]my biggest idols are everyone who’s doing their best to make our industry more inclusive, kind and safe.”

Her future plans include working to help other people’s shows, but one day Rice hopes to run her own productions and telling her own stories. “I’ve got a lot of them in me!” she says, and we know she’s not kidding
Thank you, Inquiring Minds, for this link to Director Rice’s brief bio and the self-serving rationale of “....to make our industry more inclusive, kind and safe.”, she’s adopted to justify her indefensible dehumanizing of Johnny Depp. Perhaps, for Ms.Rice, it was not solely the lack of talent that delayed her entry into the art world, rather the lack of any semblance of a moral compass.

And just one more time, because it’s so perfectly on point: “ And how much courage does a "Courageous Feminist" need to defame and victim shame an innocent man in a kids cartoon? Scum.”. ~ Inquiring Minds

Do you (or anyone else) know if the appeal documents will be available online? (Nic Wallis maybe?)

Also, is there any timeframe on when a decision could be expected to be handed down? Many thanks :)

Sorry I haven't quite copied the whole thing - on Gre3f's twitter there is a thread. It sounds like appeals are very, very difficult to get allowed and very hard to win. Please pray for some justice.
