    A Meticulous Analysis of History


    Well whether you are a long time fan or if this is your first time experiencing Pinky and The Brain, I am sure you will find the following clip not only very entertaining but also very informative. It seems Steven Spielberg included a little more than just comic relief in this cartoon, in fact, he actually “slipped in” some very real and very valuable truth in this one.

    When you watch this episode of “Meticulous Analysis of History”, you should pay close attention to the points that Brain makes when explaining how he would “get around” the mistakes that past would be “World Dominating” dictators made in order to succeed where they failed. I have included some images below the video in order of appearance, synchronized with some of Brain’s analogies or “observations”, if you will. See if you can match them up with the ones he mentions in this clip…

    A Meticulous Analysis Of History 

    Brain: Through meticulous analysis of history
    I will find a way to make the people worship me.
    By studying the conquerors of days gone by,
    I’ll discover the mistakes that made them go awry.
    Pinky: So that you can make the same mistakes if you just try.

    Brain: By studying the past so carefully,
    I won’t repeat the same mistakes of history.
    Pinky: You’ll never make another mistake, you see,
    ’cause you’ll fall asleep from reading all that history.

    Brain: Pay attention Pinky!
    When Cleopatra reigned as Queen,
    With Roman leaders she was often seen.
    But when she had no ruling friend,
    She found a poison snake to bite her in the end.
    Pinky: A bite down there I really wouldn’t recommend.

    Brain: I won’t need world alliances,
    When I’m commanding everyone’s appliances.

    Pinky: Oh no Brain, that would really smart,
    To be bitten on the bottom by a Cuisinart.

    Brain: Hannibal, our book confirms,
    Tried conquering Italy with pachyderms.
    Just why he failed, nobody tells,
    But he never could get past the Roman sentinels.
    Pinky: And he couldn’t find his weapons in the peanut shells.

    Brain: An elephant is not required,
    If I can use the media to be admired.

    Pinky: The TV viewers you’ll delight,
    Unless the network puts your show on Sunday night.

    Brain: Attila was a mighty Hun,
    He ransacked Asia Minor just for fun.
    But when he got to Europe’s banks,
    He was routed by an army of heroic Franks.
    Pinky: I like mine with sauerkraut and mustard, thanks.

    Brain: Why pillage like a criminal,
    When I can send out messages subliminal.

    Pinky: Please send a message to that Hun,
    To see if he can pillage me a hot dog bun.
    [whack] Zort!

    Brain: Caligula was no boy scout,
    He did things that we can’t even talk about.
    The Romans knew he’d lost his head,
    When he filled a vacant Senate seat with Mr. Ed.
    Pinky: What’s wrong with being friendly with a thoroughbred?

    Brain: Why rule like such a reprobate,
    When I can put the world in a hypnotic state?
    Pinky: When everybody’s in a trance,
    You can make the people do a chicken dance.

    Brain: Pinky, if you don’t stop this foolishness,
    I shall have to hurt you.
    Pinky: ‘kay.

    Brain: In France, Napoleon Buonaparte,
    Thought beating Austria was very smart.
    But when he took on England too,
    He was beaten up by Wellington at Waterloo.
    Pinky: And now he’s just a pastry filled with creamy goo.

    Brain: Why conquer with depravity,
    I’ll win the world by undermining gravity.
    Pinky: And even if your plan falls through,
    Maybe they will name a pastry after you.
    [squirt] Waahahaha!

    Brain: From Ghengis Khan to Charlemagne,
    From Alexander down to Tamburlaine.
    I find a ruler’s tragic flaw,
    And gain a little wisdom out of each faux pas.
    Pinky: Don’t forget the former Governor of Arkansas.

    Brain: That concludes my little rhyme,
    I hope this lesson wasn’t just a waste of time.
    Pinky: Well Brain, I’ve learned that one thing’s true,
    Every one of them has failed, and so have you.

    Brain: Thank you for your vote of confidence.
    Now come, we must prepare for tomorrow night.
    Pinky: Why, what are we going to do tomorrow night?
    (Gasp) Sing a song about all the world’s cheeses?

    Brain: No, Pinky, we shall try to take over the world —
    Through meticulous analysis of history.

    thanks for posting this but I didn’t see Spielbergs name?
