Product Description

Pinky and The Brain: Vol. 1 (DVD)

Amazon.ca

Are you pondering what I'm pondering, animation fans? Yes! Pinky and the Brain have finally arrived on DVD, and they're going to take over the world! Well, at the very least, these genetically engineered lab mice are going to prove, once and for all, that they're the best comedy duo ever created for an animated series aimed at children.... but, why limit their appeal to kids? As executive producer Steven Spielberg said to the show's creators, he wanted this brilliant, Emmy®-winning half-hour cartoon series to lure adults into watching it with their kids, and like the classic Warner Brothers cartoons of the past, it's likely the grown-ups will enjoy it even more! This is largely due to the fact that Pinky and the Brain was produced under the radar, almost as if nobody was watching, so while this delightfully inventive spin-off from Animaniacs is purely entertaining for kids, it also includes a wide variety of in-jokes, movie spoofs, and outrageous dialogue that only older viewers can truly appreciate. It's all innocent fun, but if you watch and listen closely, you'll quickly realize that the writers and first-rate voice cast were having the time of their lives, inventing absurd plots and one-liners purely for their own creative pleasure. How else can you explain Pinky's bizarrely suggestive responses when The Brain asks "Are you pondering what I'm pondering?" or the hilarious send-ups of classic movies like The Third Man (spoofed here as "The Third Mouse"), The Manchurian Candidate ("The Pink Candidate"), and the tearjerking TV classic Brian's Song (satirized, of course, as "Brain's Song")?

Better yet, these 22 episodes culled from P&TB's four-season run (1995-98) demonstrate how the show's basic concept--two talking lab mice ("one is a genius, the other's insane") and their nightly attempts at global domination--lent itself to a broad spectrum of hilariously ingenious plots, with no restrictions of timeframe. So you've got episodes in ancient Egypt, Napoleonic France, and 1940s Vienna, along with contemporary schemes and shorter, time-filler episodes (like "Cheese Roll Call") that qualify as mini-masterpieces of educational comedy. "A Pinky and the Brain Christmas" is a bona-fide sentimental classic (offering proof that the Brain's got a soft heart, after all), and the polar-opposite pairing of Pinky and the Brain is just about perfect, largely due to the voice talents of Maurice LaMarche (expertly channeling Orson Welles as the Brain) and Emmy-winner Rob Paulsen as Pinky (both seen, to splendid effect, in disc 2's behind-the-scenes featurette). Additional voice talents include Roddy MacDowall (as the Brain's nemesis, Snowball) and Ernest Borgnine, but the show's primary strength is its go-for-broke writing, brilliant animation (a flawless homage to Warner Bros. tradition, yet uniquely styled to match the material), and music scores (mostly by Richard Stone) that pay tribute to the late, great WB cartoon composer Carl Stalling while incorporating frequent passages from the classical repertoire. All in all, Pinky and the Brain is perfect entertainment for the young and young-at-heart, destined for cult-favorite status as one of the best overlooked TV series of the 1990s. As Pinky might say, "Poit! Narf! Oh, this is SO much fun!" --Jeff Shannon

Pinky and the Brain is a hilarious series which unbelievably was able to sustain the same plot-line, of two lab mice plotting to "take over the world", show after varied show, for 3 successful seasons. Kids will love the funny characters, lines, stories, and overall energy, while adults can further laugh at the numerous film, news and personality parodies. The only bonus feature is an interesting 30min. interview retrospective, "Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering?" with vocal stars Rob Paulsen, Maurice LaMarche, and voice director Andrea Romano. (Though the series doesn't seem dated, it might have been nice to have a few commentaries so original kid-fans could now understand some of the parody references.) Fantastically funny!

The same thing we do every night, Amazon. Try to leave a good review.

I bought this for my nieces. Honestly, this show is a true 90s classic, and I had to spread the love. When I bought this, it was on sale for $12.49. That is a ridiculous deal that I couldn't pass up in a million years. Amazon was basically holding a gun to my head with this one.

My only complaint is that I can't get that damn theme song out of my brain, brain, brain, brain, brain, brain, brain, brain, brain!

I enjoyed the Animaniacs as teenager. Now I have the opportunity to share this with my kids which they enjoy. Pinky and the Brain was an excellent spin off form the series, that still brings countless hours of entertainment.
