The 90s TV Shows

Pinky and The Brain

Pinky and the Brain is an American television and a collaboration between Steven Spielberg and Warner Bros. Animation. The show’s characters, Pinky and Brain, were originally characters on the cartoon show, Animaniacs. The two characters, Pinky and Brain, are genetically enhanced laboratory rats. They both live in a cage in the Acme Labs research facility and it is in that cage where their schemes unfold. The ultimate goal for Pinky and Brain is to achieve world domination.

The show always begins with the following dialogue before the opening song:

Pinky: “Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?”

The Brain: “The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world!”

Each episode is centered around Brain devising a new way to take over the world with the help of Pinky. Brain is a self-centered and devious mouse and Pinky is a nice mouse but verges on idiocy. It is this combination of characters that renders their grandiose plans to take over the world a complete failure.

The failed plans for world domination is usually due to Pinky’s idiocy and the ridiculousness of Brain’s plan along with his sheer arrogance.
