Trivia

A bootleg tape of a short-tempered (and foul-mouthed) Orson Welles arguing with a recording engineer during a voice-over session has been widely distributed. It was used as the basis for an episode of this show, with The Brain reading cleaned-up versions of Welles' rantings. The episode's title, "Yes, Always", is taken from one of Orson's complaints.

Quotes

The Brain: No, Pinky. Never use two drops of the formula. It would cause a reaction on the molecular level that is completely unpredictable.
Pinky: Oh, I hate it when that happens. Narf.

Cute And Funny
26 August 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

"Pinky and the Brain" was one of my favorite childhood cartoons. I used to watch it after "The Anamaniacs" on WB with my brother and sister. My favorite character was Pinky but my brother and sister's were the Brain. I think Pinky was so cute and hilarious. I also loved the theme song of this show.

My favorite part of each episode was when the brain asked Pinky "Are you pondering what I'm pondering". I couldn't wait to hear Pinky's response. My favorite episode was the one when Pinky and the Brain found baby superman. I also liked the episode when Pinky planned a surprise birthday party for the Brain.

I miss this show and occasionally watch it on Nicktoons. I give this show 9/10 stars.
