A Pinky and the Brain fan For life!
These 22 episodes on four discs include "But That's Not All Folks", "Broadway Malady", "Dangerous Brains", the three-part special "Brainwashed", and the Animaniacs themed "Star Warners".
This set also has a special feature called "It's All About the Fans" where the voices of the title rodent characters (Rob Paulsen and Maurice LaMarche) pay tribute to us fellow viewers.
Now that this is the last volume of this series, I wonder what will take its place when "Animaniacs, Volume Four" is out ? I hope it's "Tiny Toons Adventures". That would really be something to own on DVD. I'd really like to catch up on the crazy mis-adventures of Buster Bunny, Babs Bunny, Plucky Duck, and a whole lotta other Looney Tunes inspired characters. Yeah, I really hope that's in development.
Oh, wait. There's also "Pinky, Elmyra, and the Brain". The adventures of those little mice with big plans still continue, but under a new roof. The roof of the animal-loving Elmyra, who is another character from "Tiny Toons". I probably think that will be on DVD next. Either way, I really want to see some more classic Kids WB series on DVD for the first time. I don't mind waiting, that's for sure.
In TV the word 'formula' is dreaded. However, here the characters remain so endearing that the blueprint of every plot being vitually the same did not matter.
Most episodes followed this arc: -
1. Brain has a bizarre idea as to how to take over the world
2. To carry out this plan some equipment/money is needed
3. Brain comes up with an even more bizarre way to get said equipment/money
4. The plan fails due to Pinky's stupidity
5. The initial plan to take over the world is abandoned
6. Start over tomorrow night
Although there are exceptions, that basically sums up this and the previous two seasons but as the saying goes - If ain't broke don't fix it - and this formula was one that bore a lot of comedy fruit.
This show certainly beats some of the dross that graces our screens these days and had the nerve to demand that its audience had some intelligence.
Not laugh-a-minute but still a classic.
I still can't believe that no-one has decided to revive these characters to star in a live-action movie (with CGI P&B of course).
Anyway, buy or rent this collection, (I may buy all three eventually,) and I can assure you, you won't feel like a stupid jerk watching a kiddie cartoon! If anything, you'll need a thesaurus!!
