BrainRush (also spelled BrainRu$h) was a live-action game show that premiered on Cartoon Network on June 20th, 2009, as part of the CN Real block. The series took place at the Knott's Berry Farm theme park in California where 3 contestants would ride a roller coaster and answer trivia questions to win money, the contestant with the least amount of money would drop out from the next round. The first round took place on the Boomerang roller coaster, the second on the Silver Bullet, and the last round on the Xcelerator with the final contestant having the chance to win 5,000 dollars. The series received poor reception for its low quality, and for airing on a channel previously known for only cartoons, along with the other CN Real shows, leading the show to be cancelled on July 22, 2009. According to a comment [1]made by The Othersiders Archive, the full series was available on YouTube but was later taken down.

Availability[edit | edit source]

Episodes of the show used to be available in full as apart of the Cartoon Network Video service during the months of June 2009-July 2009. However, these uploads of the full episodes were quickly pulled after the series' abrupt cancellation in July of 2009. There are several clips of the show available on YouTube. [2]

In late January of 2018, LMW user Comikid found episode 5 and, (with the help from another user Dinkleberg), was able to extract the episode from iTunes and has since been uploaded to YouTube. On the first of February of the same year, another Lost Media Wiki user named Johnny 2x4 found a minute and a half clip of the show.
