Even though I don’t have kids, that does not stop me from watching (and thoroughly enjoying) lots of cartoons.  One of my favorites in the mid to late 90’s was Pinky and the Brain by Warner Bros. The premise of the show is that two genetically altered lab mice share a cage (and are friends). Each episode began with the following dialogue sequence:

Pinky: “Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?”

Brain: “The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world!”

And thus the story began!
