Pinky & The Brain Sell Peas


Everyone knows that The Brain’s voice is based on Orson Welles’ distinctive sound, ala the great voice-over artist Maurice LaMarche. But have you ever seen the near verbatim short based on outtakes from Welles’ latter days of commercial work selling peas and beef?

Last night I listened to both clips at the same time and LaMarche had it down perfectly. Start the P&TB clip and then at the 1:26 mark, start the Orson Welles clip and get ready to crack up.
