Animaniacs flashback: Pinky and the Brain sing about neuroanatomy

Back when I was a youngin’, I dearly loved the characters Pinky and the Brain from the Animaniacs show; eventually the megalomaniacal rodent and his unique friend spun off into their own dedicated series. One of my favorite childhood memories is of the charmingly surreal segment where Pinky and the Brain sing about the parts of the brain to the melody of Camptown Races. Mo over at the neurophilosophy blog found a YouTube video of the segment, which I’ve pinned below. The neurophilosophy blog also has a transcript of the lyrics. A quick bit of trivia: Maurice LeMarche, who performed the voice of the Brain, also did the voices of Kif, Calculon, and Hedonism Bot in Futurama. Now you know!
