Intro to Warner Bros. and Amblin Entertainments 1995 animated series Pinky and the Brain If any part of Animaniacs deserved a spin-of series, it was the Pinky and the Brain segment. The series followed the elaborate plans of Brain, a genetically altered lab mouse, who was assisted by fellow genetically altered lab mouse Pinky, whose sideways look at things and lack of focus on the job at hand infuriated Brain.
From their home/base/prison in Acme Labs, the two endeavored to take over the world, coming close only to fail at some critical point that was either overlooked by Brain, or else because of Pinkys aforementioned lack of focus. Occasionally, Brain finds himself either defending the world from menaces like Snowball, an evil hamster with intelligence to rival Brain, or saving himself and/or Pinky from other nefarious threats.
One is a genius, the others insane - but which one?
Whereas Pinky seems to be the insane one, he has in some episodes bizarrely come closer to taking over the world than Brain and even succeeding several times (like in the episodes Pinkys Plan and Pinkys Turn). In the case of the episode That Smarts, the Brain finds that it is he that is the cause of his own failures and not Pinky.
Unfortunately, the show was later ruined with the release of Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain in 1997, lets just pretend that that never happened.
The entire series is out on DVD in the USA on three box-sets. The series right are held by Warner Bros.
