Pinky and the Brain and Larry

Pinky and the Brain are joined by a third mouse-- Larry. Larry goes out with Pinky and the Brain in their latest scheme to take over the world but ends up becoming a hindrance more than being helpful. Larry leaves but is later replaced by another third wheel-- Zeppo.

Where the Deer and the Mouselope Play

The Brain needs to take over the steel industry of Pittsburgh and getting all the humans out of the way. He and Pinky pose as endangered "mouselopes" and seek their native land of Pittsburgh as reparations. There's tons of political and pop culture references in this episode and Joey, Nathan and Kelly dig through as much as they can!

Guest Appearance: Charles M. Howell IV

Pinky and the Brain writer amd producer Charles M. Howell IV comes on to discuss how "Pinky and the Brain and Larry" came about.
