Yes, really... THIS!
I can't say exactly when, due to some completely unexpected commitments on my time, but I WILL be reviewing this DVD set, and you will all share in the spectacle of my revisiting this rather infamous series.
Honestly, I have NO IDEA how these episodes, of a series that some folks (myself included) say should never have been made, will play to me in 2014, vs. the horror of seeing some of them in first run back in 1998.
All I DO remember is that PINKY AND THE BRAIN, having successfully spun off ANIMANIACS, was the SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS of its mid-nineties day, until someone at Warner Bros. somehow thought that pairing them with the ultra-annoying Elmyra from TINY TOON ADVENTURES was a good idea.
|SpongeBob says: Let's have a BIG NARF for the memories of Pinky and The Brain, folks!|
That, and the show itself did not last more than a few weeks, before being folded into something they called "THE BIG CARTOONIE SHOW" -- or, as the link reveals, a much more awkwardly expressed expansion of such.
Shortly thereafter, it was "THAT'S ALL FOLKS" for the once unstoppable Pinky and The Brain -- and pretty much "it" for the great (dare I say unparalleled) run of Sat AM series from Kids WB. THIS SHOW, excepted.
The back of the package lists 13 episodes. I don't remember seeing that many, or maybe I'm just blocking it out.
This IMDB LINK lists 25 episodes, counting each individual cartoon as an "episode", while omitting "Elmyra's Music Video" from "Episode 9" listed on the box.
No matter, a sticker on the front cover of the package promises "Over 4 hours of cartoon fun"...
...It remains to be seen how many hours of the show ACTUALLY MAKE UP THE SET.
Keep watching the skies, because "The Truth Is Out There", and I'll have a review of this set once I work my way through it.
Meanwhile, your (...er, fond?) memories and reminiscences of PINKY, ELMYRA AND THE BRAIN are welcome in our Comments Section. ...NARF!
