Saturday Morning Hamlet Cartoon for Father's Day

“Melancholy Brain.” By Gordon Bressack and Patrick M. Verrone. Perf. Maurice LaMarche and Rob Paulse. Dir. Charles Visser. Pinky and the Brain. Vol. 3, disc 2. The WB Television Network. 7 February 1998. DVD. Warner Home Video, 2007.

It may be sharper than a serpent's tooth to have a thankless child, but it's funnier than a barrel of mice of mixed IQs to enjoy this father-related, Hamlet-related episode of Pinky and the Brain.

Happy Father's Day, all!
