See, it shouldn’t be Brain that finally loses it and goes into a diatribe of swearing. It should be Pinky.
Think about it: Pinky doesn’t want to take over the world. Hell, Pinky probably doesn’t even want to leave his comfy lab. It’s Brain who constantly forces him to go along with his hare-brained schemes, often going through Hell and at times risking life and limb all to help with Brain’s utterly insane plans of world domination. Pinky’s not a conqueror; he just wants to be nice to people and enjoy life! But he goes along with it anyway out of simple blind devotion to his crazy friend, who constantly subjects him to verbal and physical abuse and for the most part couldn’t give a damn what he wants.
We’ve all heard Brain’s point of view, is the thing. He has gone into long diatribes about what an idiotic boob Pinky is and how this or that plan could have worked if it weren’t for him and etc. The speech here doesn’t do anything that hasn’t been done in the show itself, other than tack on some swearing. Which…okay yeah, hearing Brain swear is sorta funny in a surreal sense, I guess. But what about that have fans been so desperate to see for years? We’ve practically already heard it! Pinky finally getting to say his piece…now THAT’S something I bet some fans would find satisfying.
It’s a pretty common theory…I think Cracked started it…that Brain was actually the insane one and Pinky was the one with all the smarts. And here Mr. Walker had a fantastic opportunity to actually bring that idea into fruition, to change up the formula instead of just re-hash it for Adult Swim, to really take advantage of the voice actors’ participation and make something absolutely brilliantly clever. No offense Doug, but as a comedian, you sorta dropped the ball on this one. In my opinion.
