Animaniacs and Pinky & The Brain Vol. 2 DVD sets

Picked them up tonight. As I was at the counter, some young woman -- not sure if it was an employee or somebody who was doing an exchange (I still had my helmet on, so visibility was limited!) -- said, "Oh! Pinky & The Brain!" and walked back into the merchandise area.

So, now I finally have seen all the P&TB episodes. Brain Acres was the one I missed back in the original airings. "So now I've seen it all!" Even just watching that one, I again think, "Damn, this was funny... and LOOK at it! THIS is a cartoon! All this Flash stuff on TV today... They don't do artwork like this anymore. The character movements, the backgrounds, the props -- all of it is superb."

For these sets, I had to go to a Best Buy. The previous sets were bought at a Target, but penelopecat said that Target wasn't going to carry the Vol. 2 sets, because the first ones didn't sell well enough there (egad!). But the "local" (about 20 miles away) Best Buy had 'em for $29.99 each, though marked at $37.99 each so this must be a sale price. They also had two-set bundles for Animaniacs vols. 1 & 2 and Pinky & The Brain vols. 1 & 2, so if for whatever reason you haven't gotten the first sets yet, now you can get both of each in one go!
