“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!”
Sattler says, parodying a scene from the first film. Grant then manually turns her head to see an animated Spielberg confirm that it was he who reanimated the trio, as well as Pinky and the Brain. The scene even includes a Hulu “executive” just flat-out state:
