A bootleg tape of a short-tempered (and foul-mouthed) Orson Welles arguing with a recording engineer during a voice-over session has been widely distributed. It was used as the basis for an episode of this show, with The Brain reading cleaned-up versions of Welles' rantings. The episode's title, "Yes, Always", is taken from one of Orson's complaints.

What are we going to do tonight, Brain?
Same thing we do every night, Pinky. Try to ditch Dudley Boore!

Towards the end of the credits you'll find the definition for one of the polysyllabic words used by Brain in that week's episode. See more »
This was a great cartoon, following the same tradition of the equally good "Animaniacs", using a clever style of humor that made it enjoyable for kids and adults as well. Like in "Animaniacs" segments about this same two characters, the show follows the frustrated attempts of two mouses to conquer all the world.
They are Brain, the genius,and his assistant,Pinky,who is a complete idiot, but adorable at the same time.
The voices were quite good, and the script was funny and clever.
I miss the time were it was still possible to see good cartoons for the whole family like this.
I don't like very much the kid's cartoons from the recent years (Well, some are good but most of them are pretty bad).
However, "Pinky and the Brain " remains as a timeless classic.
