Geek(s) Of The Week: Pinky & The Brain

Pinky and Brain are genetically enhanced laboratory mice who reside in a cage in the Acme Labs research facility. Brain is self-centered and scheming; Pinky is good-natured but feebleminded. In each episode, Brain devises a new plan to take over the world which ultimately ends in failure: usually due to Pinky’s idiocy, the impossibility of Brain’s plan, Brain’s own arrogance, or just circumstances beyond their control. The same thing we try and do every night Pinky…try and take over the world. Pinky and the Brain is one of my favorite newish cartoons. It was one of the only ones I watched other than Looney Toons which are my favorites (and should be yours too). Pinky and the Brain may not be able to take over the world, however they certainly can be Geek(s) of the Week.
