Max Episode Listings

On Max in Latin America, the episodes are organized under different numberings. The most notable of these is the placement of the "Brainwashed" episodes under episodes 62, 63, and 64, their original production listings as stated by Tom Ruegger.[1] This suggests that this may be the show's proper production order.


  • To differentiate from episode articles for the other shows on this wiki, episode articles for this series follow this labeling format: "Episode # (PATB)"
  • Most of the thumbnail images are sourced directly from the DVDs. Some other thumbnails come from promotional outlets, Hulu, and iTunes.
  • On Hulu, season 4's episodes were listed under season 3.
    • Episodes 8 and 9's placements in season 1 were swapped in the Hulu episode listing.
  • The Brainwashed three-parter is speculated to be the intended series-finale for the standard setting of Pinky and the Brain (not counting "Star Warners"; which is outside the show's standard setting). A post on Tom Ruegger's old account "Trtoonswba" confirms that the Brainwashed episodes did in fact, initially represent episodes 62-64 of the series production run (just before episode 65 - "Star Warners").[1] When the three-parter finally aired, it was shown as the first three episodes of the final season (and episodes produced before it ended up airing afterwards. This change in the episode order remains in effect for the series episode listings in digital and streaming outlets, and the DVDs.
    • However, the episodes were finally listed in correct production order following the launch of Max in Latin America on February 27, 2024.
  • One scrapped episode of this series was "He's Mr. Pinky, He's Mr. Brain," a parody of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon series Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinks. [2]
