Originated as a series of segments on Animaniacs (1993) before being spun off to its own show. It was moved to the WB's prime time lineup where it won an Emmy. Then it was moved back to the Kids WB lineup where it was Pinky, Elmyra & the Brain (1998) adding the familiar human character from Tiny Toon Adventures (1990). After a few episodes, it was canceled.

Are you pondering what I'm pondering?
Uh, I think so, Brain, but balancing a family and a career... oooh, it's all too much for me.

Hilarious, cute, brilliantly animated and zany, quite simply a brilliant TV show
As an avid fan of Animaniacs, I watch this spin off show with the lovable characters Pinky and the Brain religiously, and I love it just as much as Animaniacs. It is simply brilliant and so much fun, something cartoons now should learn from. It is hilarious, cute and zany, and not only is a worthy successor to Animaniacs but almost surpasses it.
Pinky and The Brain is brilliantly animated, I love looking at the audacious colours, the pretty backgrounds and how the characters move. The music is very memorable and really cleverly composed, and the theme song is deliciously catchy. Plus the story lines are clever, outrageous but brilliantly structured, and the scripts and humour is engaging, hilarious and zany. I think it is thanks to the superb writing, and the characters are endearing and unique, Pinky being stupid but funny and adorable and Brain being brainy and somewhat deadpan. The voice acting is absolutely stellar, Rob Paulson and Maurice LeMarche both do superb jobs, and they are supported brilliantly by Tress MacNeille and Frank Welker.
Overall, brilliant, perfect for kids and adults. Shame it didn't last longer. Personally, I would avoid the spin off Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain, the obnoxious Elmyra alone was enough to make me stop watching. 10/10 Bethany Cox
