Right away, it's easy to see what's wrong here. What is the point of introducing a new character when the other two are popular already. Never mind the fact that you are taking a character from Tiny Toon Adventures and putting her into a spin-off of a show that was spun-off of Animaniacs. At least having the weird little girl and her dog from Animaniacs would make a little more sense. Either way, this is what they decided to do. So, how does this work exactly?
Well, the girl bought a turtle from a pet store, but apparently Pinky and the Brain were under its shell and got sold too. As a result, their plans for world domination got a bit complicated with a third- and dumb- wheel. That's pretty much it.
From the get-go, this was not a popular decision amongst everyone- save for the network brass. They hailed it as 'fresh new take on popular characters Pinky & The Brain.' Writer/producer Tom Hastings took it as a reason to leave the company for their rival Disney.
The show was not really a hit, running for five full episodes on its own before cancellation. It reappeared on a cartoon block for another year, getting the remainder of its episodes aired- albeit in chopped-up form. In addition, it joins Hysteria on the short list of shows that WB has 'no plans to release on DVD.' Although, just to be ironic, it did win a Daytime Emmy Award!
As to my take on the show, I honestly have no recollection of ever seeing it. Maybe I did, but simply blocked it out. Given the backlash it got, that's fairly-possible.
Next up, I take a look at a Warner Bros cartoon that's a whirling dervish of childhood entertainment. Spin spin spin! Stay tuned...
