The fourth collaboration of Steven Spielberg and his production company, Amblin Television, Pinky and the Brain was a spinoff of Warner Bros. Animation’s Animaniacs. Pink and Brain are genetically enhanced lab mice who live in a cage in the Acme Labs research facility. Brain is a scheming, selfish mouse while Pinky is goodhearted, but dim-witted. Each episode features a new plan of Brain’s to take over the world, which always ends in hilarious failure due either to Brain’s arrogance or Pinky’s lack of intelligence.
In the same vein as Animaniacs, many of its episodes are parodies of movies, books or other facets of popular culture. Having appeared in the former show as a recurring bit, the characters of Pinky and Brain appeared in 66 episodes of their own over the course of four seasons, popping up again in Steven Spielberg Presents Pinky, Elmyra & the Brain.
