Television Pinky and the Brain

20151013-20151027:
With the series set to leave Amazon Prime on 20151028, I was unable to complete it. This was largely due to the fact that I was prioritized my viewing time for Animaniacs, which was also set to leave 20151028.

Each entry begins with the following "{EpisodeNumber} A_{AmazonEpisodeNumber} {EpisodeSegmentTitle1}[/{EpisodeSegmentTitle2}[/{EpisodeSegementTitle3}]]".

S1E01 A_S1E01 Das Mouse*
*References Das Boot
1:I thought he says "Zort" at the end of the opening credits, but he says "Narf!"
1:"What is Narf?" "It's like Zort! Or Poit!"
1:Ha. Pinky randomly changes WHOI to NARF.
1:I haven't seen Das Boot, but this episode is probably a parody of it.
1:Brain would be a hawk, catch mice, and feed them to his young.
1:Hah, I didn't see that coming.

1:Oh, in the ending credits I noticed Steven Spielberg was the Executive Producer, and today I noticed the show's title reads "Steven Spielberg Presents Pinky and the Brain."

S1E04 A_S1E04 Pinky & The Fog/Where No Mice Has Gone Before/Cheese Roll Call

Cheese Roll Call
1:This song only featured Pinky.
1=20151013

1=20151013

S1E06 A_S1E06 TV or Not TV*

1=20151013

S1E08 A_S1E08 A Pinky & The Brain Christmas
1:An alternate opening theme song plays. It has a holiday twist.
1:The voice of the female pilot sounds like Petunia from Futurama. [It is and her name is Tress MacNeille. Her voicework is extensive and includes various Disney cartoon series, English versions of Miyazaki movies, WB cartoon series (e.g., Pinky and the Brain, Animaniacs), Futurama, and The Simpsons]
1:Big smile. "Now try to look like me." Pinky excitedly runs a couple dolls down and strikes a Brain-like pose, complete with sagging cheeks and a Brain-like frown and lowered brow.

Ambulatory Abe
1:Abe Lincoln says, "Narf"
1:"What color is your belly button?"
1:I'm not sure if this is considered an anachronism or not. Lincoln died in 1865 and assuming Pinky and the Brain wee living in 1995, one would have to be over 130.

1a:Lol. Their paper mache world is incredible.
1b:Is that David Letterman? "And the number one reason Chia Earth is better than [...]... Free shirts!"

1:"Dung-garees!"
1:"Hakuna matata." - Pinky
1:"Or I shall confound you with quadratic implausibles!"
1:Haha. Pinky has hardcore survival instincts.
1:"Ah stick, we hardly knew ye."
1:"Brain, are you pondering what I'm pondering?" "We eat the box?" "No, we build a boat and then we eat the box."
1:"Knock, knock" "Well that's not very funny is it."
