Fans of animated series Animaniacs will know that The Brain has been set on world domination since the genetically improved mouse was introduced to audiences in the ‘90s. While The Brain’s ambitions are always thwarted by his unwitting friend and fellow genetically improved mouse, Pinky, he keeps on trying.

Now, Hulu is collaborating with online education platform MasterClass to give The Brain his own tutorial series on how to dominate the world. The above trailer dropped Tuesday (March 14), and a series of short videos with topics such as “the art of subterfuge” and “finding your assistant” debuted across Hulu’s social media channels on Friday, March 17.

“We couldn’t think of a more fitting love letter to the incredible Animaniacs fans than a firsthand tutorial on world domination from the Brain,” said Scott Donaton, Hulu senior vice president and head of marketing, in a statement. “A big thanks to MasterClass for their collaboration to bring this idea to life and allow our favorite megalomaniac to join the ranks of their world class teachers.”

Animaniacs, starring Pinky and the Brain, originally aired from 1993 to 1998 and was executive produced by Steven Spielberg. Besides Pinky and the Brain, the show also featured three of Warner Bros.’ cartoon characters from the 1930s – Yakko, Wakko and Dot.

The show was revived on Hulu in November 2020 with Spielberg again serving as executive producer.

The third and final season of Animaniacs debuted on Hulu on February 17.
