5.0 out of 5 stars World Domination and Cheese December 4, 2006
Verified Purchase
Pinky and Brain is a great political satire cartoon about two mice. one mouse has incredible inteligence called brain who wants to control the world. his assistant pinky not quite so inteligent and accident prone foils brain's attempt at world domination. i watched all of pinky and brain cartoons when they came out on television in 1995. very funny, witty, and political. these cartoons are up there with the classic pink panther cartoons, tom and jerry, and looney toons. i would love to see pinky and brain to take over the world in these cartoons. i would question though if brain did take over the world what would he do?

what would brain turn into. would he be the little mouse that roared? would he be a dictator? i know one thing the world's cheese would be a monopoly under pinky and brain.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT! March 25, 2007
Are you pondering what I'm pondering? Sure, but horizontal stripes make me look hippy.

A must for any fan. The best part (really!) is the extra material with Maurice LaMarche and Rob Paulsen -- they are as intelligent, witty and friendly with each other as you'd ever hope. Restores your faith in humanity.

YES! I couldn't wait to relive the days of this great cartoon series. The animation may have been for the kids, but the social and political comments and references are definitely for the adults. And hysterically funny. Both volumes are very nicely boxed and the discs have extras. Volume 3 is available for pre-order, and that's great news!

5.0 out of 5 stars Are you pondering what I'm pondering? March 24, 2007
It's hard to believe, but for a short time in the mid-1990's, there was a prime-time TV show about two cartoon lab mice trying to take over the world. I expect to have a hard time convincing my future grandchildren that I really lived through such an incredible, magical time, but it's true.

That being said, I'm not sure how much the quality of the show benefited from the prime-time slot. For one thing, the Brain's sarcastic put-downs of Pinky got a little more mean-spirited in nature - possibly because the writers thought that they needed the extra "edge" in order to "make it" in prime-time. (They were wrong, as it turned out, because the show was eventually taken out of prime time and put back in the weekend kids' lineup).

I also thought that the addition of the Snowball character hurt the show. One of the things I like best about Warner Brothers cartoons is the complete absence of the clear-cut, black-and-white morality that is so characteristic of Disney cartoons. For example, Wily E. Coyote doesn't try to eat the Roadrunner because he's bad or evil - he just does it because he's a coyote, and as a coyote, it's his nature to try to eat roadrunners. Similarly, the Brain doesn't try to take over the world because he's evil - it's just his nature to try to take over the world. Snowball kind of wrecked that formula, because Snowball actually WAS unremittingly evil. Fortunately, Snowball was only in a handful of episodes.

Overall, though, Pinky and the Brain was a pretty amazingly awesome show. I mean, where else could you watch two lab mice comment on history, human nature, and popular culture while trying to take over the world? And for those of us fortunate enough to have been alive for that brief period in the mid-1990's when it appeared that Pinky and the Brain just might take over the world, this is an incredible reminder of those historic days.

NARF!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Rocky and Bullwinkle for A New Generation February 13, 2008
Verified Purchase
This collection is nothing short of side-splitting humor. Sure, kids love it for its slapstick silliness. That said, there are so many laughs between the lines for adults you may die laughing (not a bad way to go).

Watch one or two at a time as more in one sitting is difficult to withstand. It's a meal to be eaten slowly.

For pure laughs, this is a not to be missed collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE Steven Spielberg's cartoon characters May 6, 2007
Verified Purchase
I used to see this on television and LOVED it. The cartoons definitely have the physical humor to appeal to children, and the dialogue to appeal to adults.

It is formula driven, BUT, the writing and the animation are superb.

I like that the producers have begun offering all the episodes in DVD sets. It is a welcome addition to my library.

Don't hesitate if you appreciate good writing, historical references, contemporary references, fantastic animation!

If you're at this purchase it's because you've had a late night and are about to make a terrible decision, as I did. Think this through and wait until the morning to buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pinkey and the Brain
As a child, I loved the Roadrunner cartoons the best but as an adult this pair became my favorite. So when I saw they had a couple of DVDs It was a no brainer (no pun intended).

5.0 out of 5 stars Intellectual Cartoon
Anyone who has seen Steven Spielberg's cartoon series of Pinky and the Brain knows that each is a commentary on society. Wonderful series for children and adults.
