Warners Unbound

Plot[]

In Ancient Greece, The Warners are greek gods, who decide to take a vacation leaving Mount Olympus. The Warners go to an island where they have their vacation. But right after getting settled in, the Warners butt-heads with Odysseus and his crew, who splash the siblings making them very angry. The Warners return to Mount Olympus to torment Odysseus, but instead he loves what they do. The last option they decide is to put him on an island inhabited by a Donald Trump-esque cyclops. Odysseus is tormented, and begs the Warners to let him off the island. The Warners agree, and let him go home. The Warners also try to get rid of the cyclops, but the roman gods made him a demigod, so he can't be destroyed.

How to Brain Your Dragon

Plot[]

In medieval times, Pinky and Brain overhear of a terrible dragon, saying if anyone tamed it, they could take over the world. Brain likes the idea, and escapes his cage with Pinky in search of the dragon. When Pinky and Brain arrive, they discover that the dragon is passionate for the arts, and an actor named Benedict. Brain decides to give up, but then realizes that he could make Benedict act out him slaying the dragon, and he would get the kingdom. Pinky and Brain act out slaying Benedict in front of the king, who promised Brain if he slayed the dragon, he could have the kingdom. Once Brain pretends to slay Benedict, he wakes up asking how he did. The king is shocked about the charade, and puts Pinky and Brain in the dungeon. In the dungeon, Brain prepares for his next scheme to take over the world.

Trivia[]

  • The title is a parody of the book series and the DreamWorks animated film How to Train Your Dragon.
  • The fantasy sequence with The Brain who calls himself the "father of dragons" is a reference to Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones" who is also known as the "mother of dragons".
  • When Brain reminds Pinky to remember the plan, he runs in screaming "Leeroy Jenkins!", a reference to a popular 2005 internet meme from the game World of Warcraft.
  • Benedict may be a reference to Benedict Cumberbatch, an actor famous for playing Smaug in The Hobbit trilogy.
  • When talking to Pinky about the dragon, Brain says "The dragon, the dragon!" much like how the characters in "Sir Yaksalot" did.
  • During Benedict's "audition", he does his own take on the splash scene from the 1983 romance drama Flashdance.
  • After Benedict's 'death', he resurrects himself to quote famous last lines from Shakespearean plays. He also quotes "Yo Adrian! I did it!" from the movie Rocky.
  • This is the first appearance of Egwind, who is similar to Larry from the Pinky and the Brain spin-off. Both are characters created to make light of how Pinky and the Brain operate better as a duo and not as a trio.
  • Frank Welker re-uses his Thaddeus Plotz voice for the king in this segment. However, the king is a different individual.
