Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and the Brain, or Freakazoid! Today, your hosts talk about the second episode of Pinky and the Brain- Of Mouse and Man.

Of Mouse and Man

The Brain has a new plan to take over the world using voicemail. In order to get the funds to create this system however he must first get a job and then sue his employer for damages after faking an on the job work accident. The Brain gets a job using his robot suit, avoids a sexual harassment lawsuit, and then accuses the company of turning him into a mouse due to a dangerous combination of their microwave and some non-dairy creamer. This all leads to the third act where the Brain takes the company to court! Will the Brain prove that he has been turned into a mouse or will it be determined that he’s just a strange looking little man?
