Brainwashed part two title card


Brain recovers from his amnesia, and he and Pinky finally escape from The Land of Hats. While trying to track-down who sent them there, they find that the "Schmeerskahoven" really is an evil song and dance from an unknown writer. Before they can research any further, Acme Labs is destroyed. The two continue their adventure to to bring down who is responsible for everything, but run into dead-ends. They track down Snowball for answers, but find even he is imprisoned.




  • The "Microsponge Center for Psychiatric Research" where Snowball and Brain are imprisoned in takes cues from the prison asylum from The Silence of the Lambs. Brain is even trapped exactly like Hannibal Lecter, right down to the mask.
  • A caricature of Jack Nicholson is seen imprisoned in the Center as a nod to his role as Randle Patrick "R.P." McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
  • BAAB is an obvious parody of the Swedish pop group, ABBA. Addendum, two of their songs Brain mentioned are "Dancing King" and "Ferdinando", which are parodies of the ABBA songs "Dancing Queen" and "Fernando" respectively.
  • Pinky laments that the Global Schmeerskahoven-a-thon will pre-empt an airing of brand spanking fresh and shiny new Doug. This spoofs how ABC marketed their retool of Doug as "Brand Spanking New!"
  • After the ending chorus is heard, Pinky is heard saying, "Come on!" before cutting to the preview for the third and final part of Brainwashed.

Production Notes[]

  • If Kids' WB! didn't air the Brainwashed three-parter earlier in the series episode listing, this episode was initially supposed to represent episode 63 in the Pinky and the Brain series.[1]
