Two lab mice, ("One is a genius, the other insane") living in the Acme labs seek to formulate a plan for the duo, led by Brain, to take over the world. Watch each episode as Pinky and the Brain take on each attempt with a dry wit and humor and likely a parody of other media.]]>

The package also contains a special feature, "The Audition," described as follows: "Mark Hamill [. . .] and Wayne Knight [. . .] answer a casting call to do the voices of Pinky and the Brain for a future movie--and get a surprise coaching session from original Pinky and the Brain voices Rob Paulsen and Maurice LeMarche."
Since "Meet John Brain" originally aired on ANIMANIACS, one can hope it will show up in a forthcoming volume of that series.
Volume 1 consists of all of season 1 and most of season 2.
Volume 2 contains the last 3 episodes of season 2 and about half of season 3 (by far the longest season in terms of number of episodes).
It is likely that Volume 3 will be the final collection for this series with the remaining half of season 3 and the 5 episodes of season 4.
The Animaniacs collection on the other hand should require 4 Volumes to complete.
Spun off from Animaniacs, the second season of this show continues to follow the exploits of Brain the power-hungry lab mouse and his insane counterpart, Pinky. Although the characters are driven by their wish to 'take over the world', most of the episode plots follow this structure: - Brain has a bizarre idea on how to take over the world, they discover that they require money/special equipment etc, they spend most of the episode obtaining the required stuff, they are thwarted usually by Pinky's studidity. Like Wile e Coyote, the characters tend to lose the point of thier plans and get embroiled in ever more wierd adventures. Only really having the two titular mice constant in every episode, this series is not afraid to develop plot and character instead of striving for 'a laugh a minute'. This leads to gentle and subtle humour (or as gentle and subtle as power mad, egotistical and insane mice can get!).
A far cry from today's hyperactive cartoons that tend to give me a headache.
No matter what mood you're in, the pair is good for a laugh. Their deadpan double entendres are enough to keep especially jaded and cynical adults laughing.

I laugh until my stomach hurts at Pinky and the Brain. I remember these characters from years ago and am so glad I was able to find them on Amazon! Linda MorganPublished 10 months ago by Linda Morgan
So good you'll want volumes one, and three, as well. I'm not going to try to get a licence plate that says NARF, but if you don't get a copy of Pinky and the Brain, "I'm going... Read morePublished 14 months ago by Rebel Ed
