  1. My five year old loves pinky and the brain. I mean really, really loves it. He will randomly sing the theme song and it’s one of the few songs he knows well enough to sing flawlessly every time. . .He is now very fond of this blog.

  2. hey! im doing this project for school and would like to know if anyone knows where i can find the exact lyrics for this song? it would be very helpful, thank you

  3. Thanks, i needed that. I am fairly sure he says “white core matter” as in white matter makes up most of the core regions of the brain.

  4. Thanks for this! I have a large collection of Animaniacs/Pink and the Brain songs on disc, but haven’t seen many of the videos. Pinky and the Brain and all of the Animaniacs “universe” was one of the few “kids” cartoons that I could stand to watch, and I am proud to say that my kids liked them enough to avoid the whole “Barney” phase.
