Helping Out Albert Einstein & A Memorable TV Game Show Appearance
2 July 2009 | by (Lockport, NY, United States) – See all my reviews

The first segment was a fairly entertaining look at how our three stars

  • Yakko, Wakko and Dot -- help Albert Einstein discover the Theory Of


Relativity. Sound absurd? Of course, but these are cartoons! Anything can happen in a cartoon as anyone who has watched Loony Tunes, Tom & Jerry, The Pink Panther, Popeye, etc., is aware.

For much of this segment ("Cookies For Einstein"), the famous genius wants nothing to do with these pestering kids, who are Scouts selling cookies door-to-door in Switzerland, but their relentlessness proves to be beneficial to all in the end.

The other main segment, "Win Big," is clever, too, as we are introduced to "Pinky" and "The Brain." Pinky is a dimwit while The Brain is ultra-smart and wants to take over the world. I found the voice of "The Brain," done by Maurice LaMarche," to be strange and interesting.

In a clever dumb-is-smart parody involving making fun of the TV game program "Jeopardy," we find out the importance of knowing stupid trivial, like what Ralph Kramden used to holler all the time.

This was a very good segment with intelligent humor to it and a wonderful, ironic twist at the end.
