The WB (ended 1998)




Episode Guide

  • The Pinky P.O.V.
    Episode 33

    It's another usual night where Brain plans to take over the world, only it's seen from Pinky's point of view.

  • 5/9/98

    Brain has a new plan in mind, but no money for it. However, America is currently suffering through the Great Depression, so his prospects are fairly slim. The best option appears to be a successful acting career in Hollywood. Brain poses as new child actress Little Baby Brain and Pinky as the mother. Success awaits him, but will it all go to his head?

  • Dangerous Brains
    Episode 31

    Brain intends to take advantage of the next lunar eclipse by magnetically taking control of the moon and – in effect – sunlight. As with previous plans, though, the financial cost here is pretty high. Brain ultimately winds up as Mr. Brainslowski, a new school teacher. He may be a genius, but the students in his class may be too much for even him to handle.

  • Pinky and Brain prepare yet another plan for world domination. However, the episode suddenly grinds to a halt because of the network executives. As successful as the show is, the need for even better ratings is overpowering. Changes repeatedly hit the show's format – each one more bizarre than the last. Pinky and Brain can only take so much before finally deciding to quit. Finding other work, though, isn't exactly easy or likely.

  • Pinky's Turn
    Episode 29

    Brain needs a jewel to purchase a satellite needed for his latest plan – secretly changing clock radios' snooze alarms. However, his and Pinky's theft attempt fails. This failure prompts Pinky to voice his desire to try things his way. With Brain hanging back for a change, Pinky quickly gets to work. It's worse than Brain can imagine, though, as Pinky might actually do it.

  • All newspaper crossword puzzles are a part of Brain's latest plan. If he can secretly change a single clue, no one will be able to solve the puzzle, but will be consumed with trying to. As Brain contemplates where to get the money needed for this, word spreads of a "Most Perfect Family" contest. With $25,000 at stake, Brain searches out Pinky's family – making them smarter with the Acme Gene Splicer. However, unsurprisingly, this will prove chaotic.

  • Brain's Night Off
    Episode 27

    In a rare instance, world domination isn't on Pinky and Brain's to-do list tonight. Seemingly more normal things await, as the mice go to a restaurant. Naturally, trying something different for just one night is harder than expected.

  • Inherit The Wheeze
    Episode 26

    Pinky and Brain prepare a plan that makes use of abandoned satellites and a giant magnet. Things take a different turn, though, as the mice learn of a tobacco executive's misdeeds. It turns out that test results damaging to the company were stolen. Brain, of course, sees an opportunity here. Posing as the company's spokesman, Brain intends to reveal the truth and earn the adoration of millions – enough to then take over.

  • As another day dawns in Acme Woods, Brainie the Pooh and Pinklet prepare another world domination scheme. They will need all of the honey in the nearest bee hive, though, but it's guarded and high up a tree. Seeking help from friends like Jagger and Algore the Donkey, Brainie and Pinklet try to get up that tree. Will they succeed?

  • Broadway Malady
    Episode 24

    To make money, Pinky suggests they stage a Broadway musical. Brain loves the idea but refuses to sell-out and do an Andrew Lloyd Webber-type show. Pinky goes on with Mice and becomes a major hit while Brain's Angst plays to a tiny theater filled with cardboard cut-outs of audience members.

  • Pinky At The Bat
    Episode 23
    Brain has devised a powerful leather repellent spray. If it is released in the right spot and at the right time, people all over the world will be affected. While all leather will essentially be cut off from people, their wallets and the money they contain are Brain's real focus. However, to pull this off, Pinky and Brain must get into the New Hampshire Pineapple stadium and be standing on the pitcher's mound when the time comes. To do that, they become hotshots Sparky la Braina and Pinky Rodriquez, respectively.moreless

  • Operation Sea Lion
    Episode 21
    Brain takes control over aquatic mammals for his latest plan and Pinky falls for a female sea lion.
  • 11/8/97
    All of the televisions in the world are suddenly tuned in to a new infomercial. Unbeknownst to the average viewer, it is coming right from Acme Labs. Brain wants people to call in and make orders, so he can upload their addresses into a computer and ensure they get junk mail every day. Brain figures he will be able to take over by promising to end the junk mail onslaught. However, there is one problem he didn't count on. The satellite used for his infomercial is an old military one, and they are not happy about its sudden use.moreless

    Calling himself 'Brainy Jack,' Brain begins reaching out to the hippies of the world. He is preaching peace and wants to form a human chain across the land. Naturally, this is all a part of Brain's latest plan. A combination of electrostatic conditions, a carpet, a door knob, the hippies' dental work and the chain will allow Brain to broadcast a subliminal message – making the hippies his unwavering followers no matter what.

  • 10/19/97
    On Halloween night, Brain tries to hypnotise trick-or-treaters with the Jackolantronic Broadcasting System. However, Pinky gets chocolate on the transmitter – causing an explosive overload. As Brain vows to prepare for the next night, the mice are greeted by Mr. Itch. After displaying his supernatural powers, he offers Brain control of the world in exchange for his soul. Brain ultimately refuses, but moments later, he finds himself the undisputed, beloved ruler. It turns out this has happened because Pinky sold his own soul. Mr. Itch takes Pinky to Hades to be tortured (though that proves more difficult than expected). Meanwhile, despite finally ruling the world, Brain appears quite despondent. As much as he hates to admit it, Brain misses Pinky. He soon goes all the way to Hades to save him.moreless

However, business is very bad. To turn things around, a new lounge singer hits the stage – Brain himself.moreless

With an FM antenna installed in the optimal electromagnetic field, Brain can play the record all day everywhere and take over in the ensuing chaos. The required site is in the backyard of a Cleveland house, which is already taken. It has become the latest filming location of TV's The Real Life, which Pinky and Brain manage to get on in order to gain access to the backyard.
