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?
Well, I think so, Brain, but if Jimmy cracks corn, and no one cares, why does he keep doing it?

A spin off from the wonderful 'Animaniacs', 'Pinky and the Brain' was one of the funniest and best cartoons of the 90s.
The show followed the exploits of two laboratory mice on a mission to take over the world. The Brain was a super-intelligent megalomaniac, and was assisted by Pinky, an idiot. Each night, The Brain would come up with a highly elaborate plan to overthrow the worlds leaders and assume control, but was always foiled at the last minute and sent back to the drawing board.
Even though the plot was the same every episode, 'Pinky and the Brain' managed to be consistently fresh and funny. The great writing was backed up by superb voice performances, particularly by Rob Paulson (Pinky) and Maurice LaMarche (Brain). The humour works on enough levels to appeal to kids and grown-ups alike, and if you've never seen an episode of this, I suggest you seek it out!
