* TheScrappy: This show firmly cemented Elmyra as one the moment it was presented. The show already had Pinky, so there was no need for another idiot to ruin Brain's schemes.

The show already had Pinky, so there plenty unpopular for getting way too much attention over the more beloved character from her original show, this one pretty much finished the job that ''Tiny Toons'' started by forcing ''other'' more-beloved characters (one of whom was no need for another idiot already "the dumb one") to ruin Brain's schemes.share screen time with her and ensuring she'd go down in history as one of the most loathed cartoons characters ever.

* {{Tearjerker}}: Brain's line near the end of the opening, "I deeply resent this.", can come across as one. Not only does it [[OldShame echo Maurice LaMarche's feelings]] about the ReTool, it's almost as if he knew it was going to flop.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: For all the problems with this show, its antagonist Wally Faust left quite an impression in some viewers' eyes. He ''does'' look and talk like an evil ChristopherWalken, after all.

* HoYay: Occurs in "Pinky's Dream House", where Pinky acts like a housewife to Brain and even sings a song about how happy they'll be together before Elmyra makes his dream come true.

Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: In "Pinky's Dream House," Pinky sings a deliberately cheesy and cutesy song about how happy he would be if he and Brain lived in a tiny house together. Like most of Pinky's flights of fancy, it's not meant to be taken seriously; but for some viewers, it's just so darn ''cute'' and sincere that you can't help but crack a little smile.

Added DiffLines:

* SoOkayItsAverage: A minority of viewers have said that, while the setup and characters were doomed from the start, this is still written by the same writers who had created all of the best episodes of ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' and, therefore, had plenty of cleaver gags and stories sandwiched between everything else that brought the show down.

* {{Misblamed}}: For years many viewers believed Creator/KidsWB executive Jamie Kellner to be at fault for the creation of this series. However, during one episode of ''[[Podcast/TalkinToonsWithRobPaulsen Talkin' Toons']]'' with Peter Hastings, it was revealed that the network, despite what the theme song says, did not meddle with the series -- it was, in fact, entirely Steven Spielberg's idea!

* ReplacementScrappy: Rudy Mookich for [[TinyToonAdventures Montana Max]]. Elmyra's most frequently seen pets were now Mr. Pussy-Wussy and Mr. Shellbutt, taking the places of Furrball and Byron Basset (in "The Ravin!", we see that Elmyra has a pet cemetery - maybe she [[FridgeHorror squeezed them to death?]]).

** The basic setup of a naive little girl whose pets want to take over the world could make a pretty decent cartoon, if only it had been arrived at organically with a crew that actually wanted to do it.

In fact, the show staff had earlier paired Brain up with Mindy from the Mindy and Buttons segment in an episode of Animaniacs. And the result is arguably much funnier than what this series put out.

** Also Elmyra and Vanity White, one-sided on Elmyra's part (Vanity, like most people, can hardly stand her.)
