* CharacterExaggeration: Elmyra was already dumb in WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures. This show takes her stupidity UpToEleven. She will sometimes devolve into just saying "Chocolate Pie!" In her final appearance, "The Mask of Brainio", she's running around wearing an underwear over her head constantly shouting "Underwear Head!" She's also become a sadist, as she seems to enjoy hurting Pinky and the Brain.

* UniquePilotTitleSequence: The first episode has an extra verse in the theme song where Elmyra gets a little solo about how she [[ExactWords takes care of her pets.]] This verse is cut in every other episode.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: Perhaps because nobody wanted to work on this, this snow portrayed a much more cynical, cruel, and pessimistic take than the shows before it.

This crossover -- which marked Creator/WarnerBros Animation's final collaborative effort with Creator/StevenSpielberg -- came about entirely from ExecutiveMeddling (specifically, their insistence that ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' become LighterAndSofter). The writers didn't like this one bit; Peter Hastings not only [[WriterRevolt wrote an episode of the original series predicting the series' downfall because of the executives' demands]] ("You'll Never Eat Food Pellets in This Town Again"), but later left Warner Bros. to create Disney's OneSaturdayMorning. [[{{Hatedom}} To no one's surprise, the fans agreed with the writers]]. Only five full episodes of '''''Pinky, Elmyra & The Brain''''' aired before Warner Bros. pulled the plug, and the remaining segments were aired as part of the compilation program ''The Cat & Birdy Warneroonie Pinky Brainy Big Cartoonie Show'' for a grand total of 13 episodes.

** "That's Edutainment!" contains jokes at the expense of the E/I rule, Disney's OneSaturdayMorning (Pinky's response to AreYouPonderingWhatImPondering is "I think so, Brain, but ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'' makes me sneeze," and he later performs as a parody of Manny the Uncanny called Pinky the Unstinky), and the decision to put Elmyra in the show.

** The theme song flat out informs viewers that ExecutiveMeddling is the reason this show exists at all.
-->Pinky and the Brain
-->Moved to a new domain
-->[[ExecutiveMeddling It's what the network wants]]
-->[[TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong Why bother to complain?]]

** Bob Quack the Science Hack from "Better Living... Through CHEESE!" is an obvious parody of ''BillNyeTheScienceGuy''.
