Whether you might be your oldies, you’ll definitely catch every catchphrase of this animated series, Pinky and the Brain, since it’s recognized as one of the most iconic American animated television series.

Both characters are most of the inspirational characters out there at some point. If you’re still a  company that is startup and on the way of uprising, you will definitely relate and understand the exact messages they wanted to relay. What makes them  so relatable for your startup business is the very fact that most of the episodes mainly focused on the never ending pursuit of the Brain for world domination. 

Partnership and teamwork are being emphasized as well in the story. Your great or brilliant idea will never be that powerful if there’s no support from your team or partner and much likely you’ll be having a difficult time to actualize your plan. At the end ,it will still be useless and doesn’t matter. Moreover, for most startups, loyalty is a very significant attitude that they should have. Just think about what you have watched, Brain without the faithful Pinky.

To put it simply, Brain wouldn’t be able to think those brilliant ideas without the help and suggestions of his friend, Pinky although the foolishness act of Pinky always prefects with Brain’s ideologies. Although it seems that they failed mostly but actually there’s one episode where they have succeeded with the plan.

 Just some food for thought, in real life you should be wise to  whom you put your trust with. Always select and look for people who are willing to put their loyalty on you.
