* ExecutiveMeddling: The only reason this ReTool even exists. The theme song [[LampshadeHanging explicitly states]], "It's what the network wants, why bother to complain?", as Pinky and the Brain get kicked out of the Warner Brothers studio lot. At the end of the song, Brain says "I deeply resent this."
* FranchiseKiller: Before the ReTool, ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' was a mega hit shown on prime time. 5 episodes later, it got cancelled.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Ben Stein guest stars in one episode as "Rockin' Johnny Hot."
* OldShame: Creator/MauriceLaMarche (The Brain) was not very fond of the retool.
* WriterRevolt: See... most of this page. You'll understand.
