(1.) A clown (who looks and speaks like the Jerry Lewis-esque Mr. Director) is hired by Mr. Plotz for Wakko’s birthday party, but Plotz learns from Dr. Scratchansniff that, like Mr. Plotz, Wakko has a fear of clowns, resulting in the clown being battered and bruised. The episode has become somewhat of an internet meme. (2.) The Brain becomes a country-western star in order to plant hypnotic suggrestions for world domination. But his main problems in his rise to fame: Pinky keeps screwing up his name. During an interview at Comic Con, Maurice LaMarche stated that this was one of his favorite Pinky and the Brain shorts.
