* TheScrappy: While Elmyra was already 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 already "the dumb one") to share screen time with her and ensuring she'd go down in history as one of the most loathed cartoons characters ever.

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Rob Paulsen won an Emmy for his performance as Pinky in this series.

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Rob Paulsen won an Emmy for his performance as Pinky in this series. In fact, the whole series can be described as this in probably the most confusing way -- there's a clear number of BitingTheHandHumor and TakeThat moments aimed at the whole resentment the staff had towards this concept, but in spite of that, the show still has the same quality of animation as the original cartoon and the acting is still just as good as it ever was, even if the writing wasn't always up to snuff. For those reasons, the show does get its defenders, and even WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic admitted that the show could be ActuallyPrettyFunny in spite of how much the concept was doomed to fail from the start.

* NeverLiveItDown: A big one for Warner Brothers, having caused the cancellation of ''Pinky and the Brain'' to promote a considerably less popular cast member. On top of that, it's well known to most that ''nobody'' involved in its production wanted any part of it.

* 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.

* {{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.

* 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.

* 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!
