    I was poking around the SABAM website (Belgian Society of Authors, Composers, and Publishers) and found the listing for the TTA episode "Buster and Babs Go Hawaiian". For years, it's been theorized that while the main storyline and some jokes were written by the three viewers, it had to have been re-written/fine-tuned by a main staff writer.

    Well, according to that site, "Hollande" is credited for the "Aloha Oe" parody "Ow Ow Ow Ow", which of course is short for Nicholas Hollander. So while we don't know exactly how much of the final script was his, he at least had a hand in the re-write process.

    I rewatched that episode recently and noticed Paul Dini, Nicholas Hollander, and Sherri Stoner were listed as story editors in the closing credits. Strangely, there was no director credit...

    On the same topic: This week's Nostalgia Critic editorial features an interview with one of the writers, Renee Carter! Pretty cool that he was able to get an interview.

    She confirms that she and the other two writers didn't literally write the whole episode- the stuff with Hamton/Plucky and Buster/Babs/Spielberg was done by the main TTA writing staff.
