A very good start to an absolutely brilliant series.
13 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

Considering this is the first episode of "Pinky and the Brain", I reckon they had the characters, main plot idea and humour very well sussed out. I am not sure if it is my all-time favourite episode (although admittedly I have not watched many), it is nonetheless very amusing and entertaining.

In every episode, as you may well be aware, Brain, a lab mouse, tries to take over the world each night. In each episode he fails, usually due to the foiling of his plans caused by his rather less intelligent companion Pinky, another lab mouse whose genes have been spliced. Despite their differences, Brain and Pinky complement each other. While Brain is highly intelligent, yet has surprisingly evil intentions, dark sarcasm and not much niceness about him, Pinky is very stupid, mad, crazy and very nice indeed, he never means to hurt anybody unless Brain tells him to.

In this particular episode, Brain's plan to take over the world involves hypnotising people by giving them a particular substance, then Brain can mind-control them. Pinky randomly suggests something along the lines of a pancake feast for the people Brain wants to mind- control and just as Brain becomes irritated with Pinky's ramblings, he realizes he can put the substance into the pancakes, so attracting people to be hypnotised. So he can manage to put this plan into action, he also needs to procure some crabs which only live at the bottom of the Titanic. It is the start of a dangerous adventure for Pinky and the Brain...

I recommend this episode to anyone who loves Pinky and the Brain already and for those who have not, it is a brilliant introduction. I recommend the whole series to children and adults alike, there are many political or scientific jokes here that adults but not kids will find amusing. Enjoy "Das Mouse"! :D

P.S Since I wrote this review I have discovered that before this episode, there were several small episodes of Pinky and the Brain in the series "Animaniacs." I still enjoy the episode just as much, but now understand how the pair managed to be as good as they were.
