Those who think of “adult cartoons” as Anime, pornographic cartoons, and so on, have no clue what they’re missing. In the early 90’s, Steven Spielberg produced several cartoons that took chidren’s programming into some fairly zany areas. My favorite was “Pinky and The Brain.”

Any number of people have posted raves about this cartoon, which was ostensibly for kids, so I won’t add more verbiage than is absolutely necessary. In my opinion, this cartoon, possibly even more than the old Bugs Bunny cartoons, wrote at multiple levels.

For example, where else would you find a scene in which stealing a submarine would be hindered by the steering wheel having “The Club” on it, but it’s referred to as “the Sub Club”? In that same episode, the right-hand-turns-only route describes a Nautilus shape, which The Brain correctly identifies as being representative of “the Golden Mean.” In this episode alone (titled “Das Mouse,” a clear reference to the movie “Das Boot”), there are pages of movie spoofs, accurate science lingo, and pop culture references.

If you were unlucky enough to miss “Pinky and The Brain” when it originally aired, you can pick up the DVD and enjoy those laughs all over. However, this is one DVD that the kids may swipe, so keep it under lock and key.
