The Pinky Protocol: It's all a conspiracy
30 July 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The Pinky Protocol is one of the best episodes of volume 2 of Pinky and the Brain. In it, a director modelled after Oliver Stone uncovers Brain's plots to take over the world. The Brain in turn starts a rumour that he is the rightful ruler- he even has a document forged to prove it, called the Pinky Protocol, unwittingly signed by Gerald Ford.

Why'd the Brain name the protocol after Pinky? Maybe because it's so insane- and note Pinky is at his most amusingly insane in this episode, talking to lollipops and so on. I'm not an expert on American constitutional law, but I believe the Pinky Protocol would be grossly unconstitutional even if signed by a president.

The episode delves into insanity through more than just Pinky and a seditious protocol, however. The episode has a lot of fun playing with conspiracy theories and the nuts who believe in them. The Oliver Stone-ish movie about Pinky and the Brain is ridiculously bad (which is good) and the mice's escape attempt (which leads right back to the truck) is quintessential cartoon humour. With consistent laughs and paranoid fun, the Pinky Protocol is great stuff.
