"When in the Course of Human Events" is a song that appears in the Pinky and the Brain episode "The Pink Candidate." It is performed by Pinky (Rob Paulsen).

Description[]

As Pinky had just been elected president, the Brain attempts to use this new position of power to his advantage. He proposes a series of scheme ideas to Pinky that border on being unconstitutional. Pinky then attempts to remind Brain that these go against his values that he had taught him and brings out hand-puppets of Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. He then begins to sing the introduction lines of the United States Declaration of Independence before Brain angrily cuts him off.

Lyrics[]

Pinky:
When in the course of human events,
it becomes necessary-

Trivia[]

  • As the song quotes the United States Declaration of Independence, it can be assumed that had Brain not cut it off, the rest of the song would've quoted it in a musical style.
