    I have been lurking through old posts on fan newsgroups and it is kinda cool but sometimes I wonder about them.

    For example there was one huge monster thread on how to abbreviate Animaniacs take a look at these post
    I am so glad they didn't pick NMNEX oh and look at this one
    crap that would have really confused us and WBA :eek: They also though of AMA,AMX and SSA (Steven Spielberg's Animaniacs) so what about the A! we all know and love well
    Before A! become kinda standardized I the following was mostly used (AN,A! ANIX) I wonder where most of the fans of yester year are now.

    LOL. It's pretty funny to see how the abbreviations kept getting longer and longer. Personally I would've gone with the phonetic NMENX.

    Animx actually is a pretty good abbreviation.....trouble is, it's really too LONG to be an abbreviation....the guy's right, why bother if you can just type it out? (Animaniacs, animaniacs, animaniacs, animaniacs.........I took a typing class for two years, you think I wouldn't know how to type that word rapid-fire-dly?? Animaniacs, animaniacs, animaniacs, animaniacs.....)

    LOL

    Hehe... now that's funny! By the time they wrote all that, they could have just written "Animaniacs". And they didn't even try "Pinky & The Brain"! :p

    (I guess they could go with P&B; or how about, to combine the two shows, use this abbreiviation: A/P&B .)

    We all abbreiviate our favorite shows here: B:TAS, B/S, JL, BB. Fortunately, ours were almost no-brainers. :rolleyes:

    But the most troubling question of all is... why is the word "abbreviate" so long and hard to spell, and has NO COMMON ABBREVIATION?!? :confused:

    When TTA was still in production alt.tv.tiny-toon even abbreviate episodes here is the most recent version of a document they made back then so memebers can keep abbreviations strait.

    Notice before Animaniacs A! refered to the TTA ep which is why at first A! fans didn't like the idea of using A! to refer to the show. Also for some reason A! fans didn't bother abbreviating eps like TTA fans did they just seemed to use ep or production number if they felt lazy
