Introduction

Pinky and the Brain is an animated show from the mid-1990s which centered around the titular duo's (half-baked) attempts to take over the world! The deranged duo never actually achieved their goal of global domination but they did take over our TV screens for a solid period of time. The show was incredibly successful back in its day and has attained cult classic status, as far as contemporary pop culture is concerned. The show was so prolific back in its day that many of the folks who watched it can quote certain episodes verbatim. Even now, fans of the show are probably humming along to the show's catchy theme song as they read along.

Pinky and the Brain Inspired Dog Name Consideration

Pinky and the Brain was featured as a short on The Animaniacs - an insanely popular show that's so beloved, a new season will be released on Amazon Prime Video purely due to popular demand. Pinky and the Brain shared their spotlight with other great shorts from the mid-1990s like Slappy the Squirrel, Goodfeathers, Rita and Runt,  and Good Idea, Bad Idea. If you're a big fan of Yakko, Wakko, Dot, and the myriad of other crazy characters featured on Animaniacs then you're also probably a huge fan of Pinky and the Brain. If you want to represent the short, you could always name your dog after Pinky, Brain, or anyone else from the show.

Another reason that someone might consider naming their dog after a Pinky and the Brain character could be the sheer amount of references and callbacks that were featured throughout series' four season run; everything from Titanic to Microsoft has been referenced and parodied on the show. Pinky and the Brain has also been referenced and parodied, in turn, by games like Fallout 2, comic books made by both Marvel and DC, and live action films like 2018's Tully. Pinky and the Brain was a very "meta'" show at its core. If self-aware, self-referential comedy is your thing, Pinky and the Brain should be right up your alley.
