Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain: The Com­plete Se­ries [Warner, $19.98]

Animation Magazine - - Dvds & Downloads -

Fans of the “Steven Spiel­berg Presents” school of TV an­i­ma­tion have been wait­ing for this. The short-lived mash up se­ries, which teamed the lov­able lab ro­dents orig­i­nat­ing in An­i­ma­ni­acs seg­ments with Tiny Toon Adventures’ an­i­mal-ob­sessed Elmyra, ran on The WB in the late ‘90s—al­though the last batch of its 13 two-part episodes were shuf­fled off to The Big Car­toonie Show in 1999.

Broad­cast flubs aside, the Warner Bros./Am­blin toon has retro ap­peal to some, and def­i­nitely ben­e­fits from the tal­ent of toon vet­er­ans like writer-pro­ducer Tom Rueg­ger, di­rec­tors Rob Davies and Nel­son Recinos and the awe­some voice cast. Since los­ing their ACME Lab head­quar­ters, Pinky (Rob Paulsen) and The Brain (Mau­rice La­Marche) must plot world dom­i­na­tion from the home of vi­o­lently af­fec­tion­ate Elmyra (Cree Sum­mer), try­ing to steer clear of her, neigh­bor­hood bully Roody (Nancy Cartwright) and a se­cret or­ga­ni­za­tion bent on kid­nap­ping Brain. [Re­lease date: Jan­uary 28]
