Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that, as cartoon series go, Pinky and the Brain has plenty of substance to entertain both kids and adults. The show's physical humor and absurd characters (the main characters are mice bent on world domination) will appeal to grade-schoolers, and its clever, sophisticated parodies of literature, politics, and culture will be applauded by astute adults. There's some recurring fantasy violence of the over-the-top cartoon kind, but most kids won't be upset by the pratfalls and unlikely scenarios (long-distance falls, explosions, collisions) that never leave a lasting effect.
Standard cartoon-style violence, including explosions, dramatic falls, collisions, and crashes -- but none of it results in lasting injury, and it's all laden with plenty of humor and absurdity to keep the mood light.
The show revolves around elaborate plans for world domination, through whatever means necessary. That said, it's clear that Brain's schemes aren't intended to be admirable.
