Fun, Time and Space[]

Fun, Time and Space title


The Brain creates a black hole in Elmyra's bedroom, hoping to exploit the theory that black holes can transport someone to other universes or send someone back in time. He enlists Pinky to distract Elmyra to play along with her make-believe show. Pinky's patience, however, is inordinately low and he constantly bickers with Elmyra as Brain struggles to perfect the black hole.



  • The Elmyra Fun Time Show makes its comeback from the Tiny Toon Adventures season 2 finale, "Take Elmyra Please."
  • At the end of this episode just before the ending chorus is about to finish, the exterior shot of Elmyra's house is suddenly sucked in until the screen goes black. This implies that the black hole sucked them all in.

Hooray for Meat[]

Hooray for Meat title


Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain go to a "Meat Festival". There, The Brain discovers a plan to take over the world using "Meats of Evil." The mice plan to use the Patty Ann suit to try out for the Meat Queen contest. They win, but are forced to contend with Vanity's wrath and Elmyra's jealousy.



  • "Patty Ann"
  • "Juggling With Meat"
  • "Gristle Meat"
  • "Animal Pieces in my Stew"


  • The opening song in this episode is a parody of "Stayin' Alive" performed by the Bees Gees.
  • "Gristle Meat" is performed to the tune of "The Stars and Stripes Forever."
  • The short song "Animal Pieces in my Stew" is a parody of "Animal Crackers in my Soup" from the 1935 musical film Curly Top starting Shirley Temple.
  • The ending chorus plays as usual in the end, except the last "Brain" is replaced with Pinky shouting "Meat!".


Pinky: "Meat. It's a Freshmaker." (Parody of the Mentos slogan)
Pinky: "Meat- The quicker-picker-upper!" (Parody of the Bounty slogan)
