Each of the thirteen episodes were split into two ten minute parts, except for the tenth episode (or nineteenth part) which played for the full 22 minutes.
The series, however, was canceled after only five episodes (ten parts) had gone to air. The remaining eight episodes (fifteen parts) were moved to segments seen on the The Big Cartoonie Show, and with the exception of its first outing on the show (episode six, or parts eleven and twelve) and episode ten (part nineteen), each episode was split into its parts and shown a week apart. The episode ordering also changed from the original design. Welcome to the Pinky, Elmyra & the Brain guide at TV.com. Pinky and the Brain, those two genetically engineered lab mice, are homeless now that Acme Labs is no more. And the mice are in need of a place to hide as a secret organization wants to apprehend Brain. While hiding in a pet shop, the mice wound up getting bought by Elmyra Duff.

I wish I could get this show on DVD I loved it and think it is better than a good portion of the current kids shows. I thought it was really funny I love Elmyra and to throw her in with Pinky and the Brain was Classic. Definitely an underrated concept. What ever happened to Saturday morning cartoons? When Elmyra calls The Brain Cranky Big Head just cracks me up. I would love to find this on DVD. Why can't cartoon network run this show and perhaps have fewer of the same boring cartoons that adults don't want to sit through.

This show is like Animaniacs but it is a cartoon from Animaniacs in thier own show. This show is awesome and it is real funny. I prefered the classic version of this show because it was more funnier but this one is also good too. I like all things to do with Pinky and the Brain.

Pinky and the Brain was truly one of the greatest shows of all time. When word was released that Elmyra from Tiny Toon Adventures, arguably the worst character Warner Bros. has ever created, was going to be added to the cast in a spinoff to the show, there were petitions with thousands of signatures to stop this from happening. Everyone knew that it would mean the end of WB's silver age, and it did.
Tiny Toons was a great show, don't get me wrong, but it had one fatal flaw. That flaw was Elmyra. The only good thing that came out of Tiny Toons' cancellation was that we would no longer be subject to Elmyra's annoying, animal-abusing antics. Then someone at WB got the brilliant idea of adding the worst character they've ever created to the cast of one of the best shows they've ever created. It's no surprise that the show only lasted one season.
It's just another example of execs and their stupidity. For God's sake, listen to your fans! We know what we want to see! We do not want to see Elmyra ruining our favorite show! I can't believe they actually cancelled the original Pinky and the Brain for this... they practically killed the legacy. Well, not really, since most people remember Pinky and the Brain from their glory days at Acme Labs. That's the way it should be. If this show becomes viewable again in the near future, might I suggest not bothering to watch it unless you're just curious. This show was the disgrace that put an end to WB's silver age of cartoons.

I always wonder whose idea it was to do this to Pinky and the Brain. It was just not a good idea at all. The only reason I watched any of it was because I love the original show. This was just a mess. The best way I can describe it is by using one of my favorite episodes of the original Pinky and the Brain. "Pinky and the Brain and Larry" had a great set up. They squeezed him into the opening theme (at the beginning of the season, I believe), and my dad and I were scared to death. We didn't know why they would add another character. After a wacky, Three Stooges-like story, they concluded that the reason things went wrong was because of the extra person. "It's just Yin and Yang! There shouldn't be a Larry!" After an episode like that, why did they go and put Larry back in?
