    This is the penultimate episode of Pinky and the Brain. It took the series to a new level, and will always be the "best" in my opinion.



    Before this, the series was just about Pinky and the Brain trying to take over the world. This episode revealed a sweeter side to the characters. All Pinky wants for Christmas is for Santa to give Brain the world. And right when Brain has the world in the palms of his hands, he gives it up in the spirit of Christmas.



    While sacrificing none of its usual hilarity, this episode was a very touching scenario that went beyond 'taking over the world' and showed the meaning of friendship.



    Excellent voice characterizations of Pinky and the Brain as usual by Rob Paulsen and Maurice LaMarche, this episode was a series best.moreless

    • Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Christmas Special.

      Pinky: You know, Brain, I was just thinking. I don't think I really want to be elf.
      Brain: What would you rather be?
      Pinky: A dentist.
      Brain: You've seen too many Christmas specials, Pinky.

      Pinky is repeating the desire to become a dentist of Hermey, an elf in the Rankin-Bass Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer TV special.

    • Brain: Hm, for some reason, the idea of joining the Donner party is unappealing.

      The Donner Party was an ill-fated group of American pioneers moving westward in the mid-19th century. During the winter of 1846-47, they were unable to cross the Sierra Nevada. Consequently, nearly half of their party died, and some of the remaining party members resorted to eating their dead to survive.
