31 Days of Xmas: A Pinky and the Brain Christmas

Narf !! 

Well, I think so, Brain, but 'apply North Pole' to what?

Heh heh heh, I loved Pinky and the Brain when it was out.  I can honestly say that the show was one of the best things that had Steven Spielberg's name on it.  From Edward G Robinson "Brain" to the inexplicable british accent on Pinky, the show made me giggle constantly. So, in this one Brain's latest take-over-the-world scheme involves getting a toy made for every man, woman and child in the world. Who better to manipulate into doing it than Santa's elves?  Of course, getting there is half the fun. Pinky and Brain pretend to be Canadian elves and infiltrate the toyshop, getting caught almost immediately but leaving the plans to the nefarious Noodle Noggin toy behind.  In the end the toy is delivered and Brain is ready to hypnotize them all into submission when suddenly he is moved to tears by Pinky's incredibly articulate and moving Letter to Santa, shelving the plan for an Xmas wish. Sheer giggly brilliance.

P.S. Yes, we are including Xmas specials in this watching affair because, well, there are so many good ones and also because we do need the occasional evening free to actually do Xmas stuff like decorate and buy presents and such.
