Wakka wakka doo! Pinky and the Brain give the middle finger to Warner execs
30 June 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

...if only they had middle fingers.

Pinky and the Brain was the single most promising cartoon since The Simpsons. The clever jokes and appealing characters attracted audiences beyond the little kids- I remember in high school the teacher remarked we students watched the same stuff as her toddlers. One thing Pinky and the Brain did great was balance. They had an absolutely insane free-spirited mouse balanced against a serious, brilliant, cruel mouse. They had a silly premise of mousey world domination balanced against a dark laboratory setting. Then Warner execs stepped in and blew it all up, destroying the balance by adding a second stupid character and ripping Pinky and the Brain from the laboratory. The reformed show, Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain, crashed and burned. A classic lesson: Don't fix what isn't broken.

You'll Never Eat Food Pellets in This Town Again! is a part of volume 3 of Pinky and the Brain, one of the last episodes pre-Elmyra. The back of this DVD claims this is the end of Pinky and the Brain, choosing to ignore the disaster that was Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain. In its last moments, Pinky and the Brain struck back against the upcoming retooling of the show- You'll Never Eat Food Pellets in This Town Again! depicts Pinky and the Brain as actors whose show is transformed by misguided execs. It's noted there was no actual problem that necessitated a change; it forecasts the change in setting and the addition of annoying characters; it nails bad writing often seen in other shows. One of the great parts of this episode is that Pinky as an actor is still insane- he has a puppet wife that everyone except Brain treats as being real, shades of Franklin Delano Bluth. This wackiness is balanced by mature themes in this episode of marital problems and unemployment. Sadly, that kind of balance would soon be lost.
