|Created by||Tom Ruegger|

Pinky is a sapient, genetically-enhanced laboratory mouse who seeks to take over the world along with his cagemate and associate, the Brain.
Despite his genetic uplifting, Pinky isn't near as intelligent as the Brain, but is extremely loyal to him and considers him his closest friend. He is also extremely goofy, cheerful (albeit emotionally sensitive), somewhat hyperactive and gullible. He is known for his random verbal exclamations such as "Narf!", "Zort" and "Poit!". Interestingly, Pinky doesn't seem to share any of the Brain's ambitions in ruling the world, and participates in the Brain's plots merely because he wants to help him.
- This character was originally based on animation producer Eddie Fitzgerald.
- Although the main series takes place in the USA in the 1990s, some episodes are instead set in other parts of the world and other time periods. These include some periods in which genetic engineering would be quite out of place, such as the 1950s and even Ancient Rome.
