In part one of three, a new dance craze called the Schmëerskåhøvên is sweeping America while also dumbing down its participants. To combat the rapid dumbing down of America, a White House conference is called to find solutions to this problem. The mice attend this conference after Brain was accidently invited, but are kicked out after the First Lady realizes the mistake. The mice then pursue a clown that stole the speech Brain was planning to give into the Washington Monument where they are sedated and captured. After Brain's mind is erased, the mice are imprisoned in strange and mysterious place where everyone is identified by the hat they wear and where everyone must perform the Schëerskåhøvên. To be continued...
Brain's World Domination Plans
- "I have shrunken us to molecular size. We are traveling through an artery inside the human body. ... That thumping is the beating of the heart pumping which is propelling us to our destination: the larynx of folksy radio personality Tom Bodett. ... There I will implant my trachiomatic control chip. ... When middle America hears my plea for submission uttered in Tom's dulcet tones, they will be unable to resist. Allowing me to take over the world!"
Brain's Tools For World Domination
- Trachiomatic control chip to gain control of Tom Bodett.
- Schëerskåhøvên by an as yet unknown force
- Pork Pie (Brain)
- Fez (Pinky)
- When Brain enters the elevator on the top floor of the Washington Monument to catch that clown, the door is partially open. But in the shot of the mice looking for the clown, the door is completely open.
