Puppet Rulers


Story by Peter Hastings
Written by Tom Minton
Directed by Barry Caldwell and Dave Marshall


In 1954, Pinky and the Brain's latest world domination scheme involves them appearing on a popular children's puppet show.


  • The show that Pinky and the Brain appear on is a parody of Beany and Cecil, which was created by former Looney Tunes director Bob Clampett and starred voice actors Daws Butler and Stan Freberg. Fun fact: Beany and Cecil was in fact one of Albert Einstein's favorite television shows.
  • A young Bill Clinton is seen watching JFK on television.
  • Mindy and Buttons make a cameo.

The moral of today's story is:
"Vote early and vote often."

Chase Ending

In the show's THIRD elevator gag, the Warners return to the water tower via an elevator button from Wakko's gag bag. Wakko pushes the button, and the tower goes down to take them up. Ralph pushes the button and an anvil falls on his head. The Warners just shrug and go back into the tower.
