Big Dreams is a song from the forty-first episode from the Pinky and the Brain spin-off series.

Description[]

The Brain, who goes by his stage name Brainatra, sings this song while guest starring on a children’s television program. During the chorus, there is a montage of Brainatra featured on various magazine covers; Variety magazine with the headline “Brainatra Boffo In Desert”, Look magazine with a cover of Brainatra and Gene Kelley dancing in sailor suits (a nod to the scene in Anchors Aweigh (1945) where Gene Kelley’s character dances with Jerry Mouse), and a photo of Brainatra with President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy. The song is a parody of the Frank Sinatra song "High Hopes;" which was featured in the movie A Hole in the Head (1959), and won an Oscar for Best Original Song at the 32nd Academy Awards.

Lyrics[]

The Brain (Brainatra):
What could make a brave little mouse,
Think he’ll live inside the White House?
You’ll never hear that mouse grouse,
He’s not wearing no blouse
But he has-
The Brain (Brainatra) and Children Chorus:
Biiig dreams, he has biiig dreams,
He’s got Angel food cake in the laaake schemes!
The Brain (Brainatra):
So if you want to dominate
Don’t be second rate
Just remember that mouse!
Children Chorus:
Ooh hey wow that mouse is in the White-
The Brain (Brainatra):
Ooh hey wow that mouse is in the White-
The Brain (Brainatra) and Children Chorus:
Ooh hey wow that mouse is in the White House!
White House!
