In episode 41 of Toon Talk Weekly, the guys dive into the weird world of cartoon spinoffs and find that, actually quite a few popular cartoons are derived from a previous cartoon. The discussion rolls on into an episode of Pinky and the Brain!
After a successful run as a segment on Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain actually received their own show. The guys discuss an episode from season 1 entitled "Collect ‘Em All," and they talk about whether or not they needed 4 seasons of their own full-length cartoon.
To extend the discussion, check out Brad’s awesome list of other cartoon spinoffs that weren’t covered in this episode.
