This one was a spinoff of Animaniacs, produced by Steven Spielberg and Warner Bros. Animation, starring Pinky and the Brain; it ran originally from October 1, 1995 to May 18, 2001 on Kids' WB! for 65 episodes of 11, 7, or 22 minutes, depending on the episode, divided into 6 seasons.

These two characters first appeared in 1993 as a recurring segment on the show Animaniacs. Pinky and Brain are genetically enhanced laboratory mice who resided in a cage in the Acme Labs research facility.

Each episode was about one of Brain's attempts for world domination with Pinky's assistance, and the ultimate failure of that plan. While Brain (voiced by Maurice LaMarche) was self-centered and scheming; Pinky (voiced by Rob Paulsen) was good but feeble-minded.

Although most episodes take place in present time, some episodes took place in historical times, with Pinky and the Brain living in the laboratory of some historic scientifically-minded figure, like H.G. Wells, Ivan Pavlov or Merlin, among others.

Some of the secondary characters included Snowball, a hamster, who also has become intelligent and genetically enhanced.

The series won several Emmy Awards including a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program for the episode A Pinky and the Brain Christmas; an Emmy for Rob Paulsen as Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program for his role as Pinky in 1999; and the show won the 1999 Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Special Class Animated Program.

Both Rob Paulsen and Maurice LaMarche won the Annie Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement for Voice Acting by a Male Performer in an Animated Television Program Production, the former in 1996 and 1997, while the latter in 1998.

They later spun off into a second and less successful series, Pinky, Elmyra & the Brain pairing with another Tiny Toons character, Elmyra Duff and airing on the same channel from September 19, 1998 to April, 1999 for only 13 episodes.

There are no doubts that these two mice are part of the memories of many children of the 90s; and part of the pop culture of the Generation Y.
