  • In one scene, Pinky and the Brain play the 1997 film, Titanic starring Katie Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio in the toilet.
  • Pinky's question to the Brain explains the credits scene from The Flintstones when Fred Flintstone's car tipped over by giant ribs.
  • Shoo Fly, Itsy Bitsy Spider and Mulberry Bush are background music in this cartoon.

Quotes[]

Pinky: "If Fred Flintstone knew the giant order of ribs was going to tip over his car, why does he order them every week?"
​*Later*
The Brain: '"It was an end title."
Pinky: "What?"
The Brain: "Fred Flintstone doesn't order ribs every week. That was only animated once, then music and voice track was added. The footage ran at the end of the show in the same place each time; it is called an end title."
Pinky: "Oh, thanks Brain."
