Puppet Rulers

Animation by Wang Film Production

Plot

In 1954, Pinky and the Brain's latest world domination scheme involves them appearing on a popular children's puppet show. Unfortunately, when the "frozen in time" part is also accomplished, things are less than expected.

Crew

Notes

  • The show that Pinky and the Brain appear on is a parody of Beany and Cecil, which was created by former Looney Tunes director Bob Clampett and starred voice actors Daws Butler and Stan Freberg. Fun fact: Beany and Cecil was in fact one of Albert Einstein's favorite television shows. He interrupted a meeting once by saying, "You'll have to excuse me, gentlemen. It's time for Beany!"
  • A young Bill Clinton is seen watching JFK on television.
  • Mindy and Buttons make a cameo.

The moral of today's story is:
"Vote early and vote often."

Trivia

  • Wakko says "Pat, I'd like to buy a vowel", which Yakko replies with "Wrong wheel", referencing Wheel of Fortune.

Chase Ending

Plot

In the show's THIRD elevator gag, the Warners return to the water tower via an elevator button from Wakko's gag bag. Wakko pushes the button, and the tower goes down to take them up. Ralph pushes the button and an anvil falls on his head. The Warners just shrug and go back into the tower.
