Superficial Intelligence is the 17th Corneil and Bernie episode.

Plot

Since the newspaper says that humans are more evolved than dogs, Corneil decides to enter an intelligence contest. The other contestants are a guy with a monkey named Junior and a girl with a cat named Dido. But Corneil doesn't want anyone to get smart about his secret of talking, so he decides to act less smart than he actually is. And this actually gives Junior the upper hand! When Corneil comes in first place on the last test, the doctor suspects about his anthropmorphic abilities.

Trivia

  • During Corniel's IQ testing, he is put through a simple maze where blue coloured arrows lead to the right path, and red leads to a dead end. However, since dogs are colorblind, Corniel should not have been able to recognise this. Corneil might also be able to see in color.
  • The episode "Superficial Intelligence" correctly emulates a real-life fact about video games, that there are multiple game systems and that some titles are released on each of them. 
  • The scientist determines that Corneil must be capable of speaking due to his score on the IQ test. Because of this, Corneil rigs the machine to avoid further hints of his secret. However, he is given a good score on the next test. There is no indication of the machine being fixed.*
  • Corneil's IQ is (temporarily) revealed to be 250. That's along the same lines as Stephen Hawking, which means that even if talking dogs were common, Corneil would still be unique in his intelligence.
