The package also contains a special feature, "The Audition," described as follows: "Mark Hamill [. . .] and Wayne Knight [. . .] answer a casting call to do the voices of Pinky and the Brain for a future movie--and get a surprise coaching session from original Pinky and the Brain voices Rob Paulsen and Maurice LeMarche."
Since "Meet John Brain" originally aired on ANIMANIACS, one can hope it will show up in a forthcoming volume of that series.

"A welcome follow up to the first season, this second volume has more of the same in an excellent series that has no peer.
Spun off from Animaniacs, the second season of this show continues to follow the exploits of Brain the power-hungry lab mouse and his insane counterpart, Pinky. Although the characters are driven by their wish to 'take over the world', most of the episode plots follow this structure: - Brain has a bizarre idea on how to take over the world, they discover that they require money/special equipment etc, they spend most of the episode obtaining the required stuff, they are thwarted usually by Pinky's studidity. Like Wile e Coyote, the characters tend to lose the point of thier plans and get embroiled in ever more wierd adventures. Only really having the two titular mice constant in every episode, this series is not afraid to develop plot and character instead of striving for 'a laugh a minute'. This leads to gentle and subtle humour (or as gentle and subtle as power mad, egotistical and insane mice can get!).
A far cry from today's hyperactive cartoons that tend to give me a headache."

"Purchasers should note that this volume, like the first volume, not only IS a "season" compilation, due to the varied number of episodes in each season, each volume extends beyond the individual seasons. They are not simply "selections of episodes" they are in fact in the order of original broadcast.
Volume 1 consists of all of season 1 and most of season 2.
Volume 2 contains the last 3 episodes of season 2 and about half of season 3 (by far the longest season in terms of number of episodes).
It is likely that Volume 3 will be the final collection for this series with the remaining half of season 3 and the 5 episodes of season 4.
The Animaniacs collection on the other hand should require 4 Volumes to complete."
