It’s official! Pinky and the Brain and Animaniacs are coming to DVD on July 25th! Very cool! It’s about time I gotta say, nothing like striking while the iron is hot huh? Pinky and the Brain is over 10 years old and Animaniacs is 12 years old. It’s hard to believe it’s taken this long to finally get them out but I am glad they finally did. I hope there’s some cool extras on it. the article mentios Maurice LaMarsh (voice of The Brain)will be hosting the series so that should be cool.
I was fortunate enough to work on both of these series back in “the day” so I guess that’s why I am looking forward to it. Not really sure if any kids even know what these shows are (or care for that matter. you can learn more about the series here.) but they are the reason TV animation is as big as it is in my opinion.
Now if they would only release a Tazmania DVD (clip) or a Histeria DVD.(clip) Although I doubt that as they were not hit shows like P&B and Animaniacs. Still, I’d like to get all the epsides on DVD.
I worked on probably about 20 episodes of Tazmania and 20 or more episodes of Animaniacs. As for Pinky and the Brain I directed I think 7 of them and worked on the first one when it was just a segement on Animaniacs among others.
By the way I was perusing the link I gave you above and I notivced that three of the P&B cartoons I directed got a perfect score on the site! Pretty cool! One was called Dangerous Brains and another was called The Tailor and the Mice.(clip) the third was called Pinky’s P.O.V. (clip) Granted it’s only dictated by a few votes but it’s still fun to think someone out there liked something I was a part of.
