Remember kids' PC game from late 90s to mid-00s?

Trying to recall a game I played with my kid between 1998 and 2006. I *think* it was online rather than on computer. It required you to answer questions (Science? Math?), I think the answers were multiple choice, and when you chose an answer, the animation reverted to a scene with a large rocking brain, and possibly a "mad scientist" sort of character, and after a bit of animation, it was revealed that your answer was CORRECT! (or not).

Was it 'The Island of Dr. Brain?"

Ooh nice, and Atari games were often in our house then, but this is not the one I'm trying to remember.

Not one of the "You Don't Know Jack ?" series ?

Was it a Learning Company game? I remember Gizmos and Gadgets had a mad scientist.

Roughly half of these results for educational & science games are from 1998 or later...if you're not sure about the scienceyness, then you can pick other filters here. A caveat is that if this was a browser-based online game, its likely that mobygames wouldn't have it at all.
