| Actually not bad
Don't get me wrong, the original Pinky and the Brain series is a far superior show but this non-canon (confirmed by series creator to be non-canon) spin-off does have its moments. It brings an almost Ed Edd n Eddy-like vibe to Pinky and the Brian. Seeing Elmyra and the two mice get into all sorts of bizarre adventures is actually kind of amusing.

The characters of Pinky and the Brain themselves recieve some character changes. Pinky starts to talk back to Brain, and Brain returns to a larger megalomaniacal persona akin to the early days of their skits on Animaniacs. Elmyra is still annoying (and sometimes boarders on being disturbing) but serves an interesting foil to Brain.

The voice-acting, scoring and animation is just as stellar as the orignal, with Rough Draft Studios in particular rising to new heights in the episodes they animated (just check out their animation in the intro, almost TMS-like in some respects). Wang Film Productions' animation is also just as expressive and fluid as always.

Some particular episode highlights include "Gee Your Hair Spells Terrific!", "The Cat Who Cried Woof", "Fun, Time and Space", "Pinky's Playhouse" (which questions the relationship between Pinky and Brain), How I Spent My Weekend", "The Raven" and "That's Edutainment!". Believe me when I say this show had some good episodes, they had some real good episodes.

Overall, this show may have been what the network demanded against the writers' freewill, but man they still delivered. If you are hoping to see more traditional, Elmyra-less adventures of Pinky and the Brain, then I'd reccomend checking out their original series, Animaniacs and the upcoming Animaniacs reboot. Otherwise if you like watching shows where a trio of unlikely friends get into all sorts of chaos, then this is the show for you.
