In the meantime, sit back & relax, browse through some eps (check out all the kewel comments in Season 3!), look for your name in the Commentaries list, browse some more -- and Enjoy! ============================================================================== Tiny Toon Adventures REFERENCE GUIDE version 12.15.92 ============================================================================== (c)1992 Synth F. Oberheim edited by: Synth F. Oberheim .:::::. serving you at 3 convenient Internet locations: synth@deepthought.unm.edu bbx!kitsune!synth synth@yenta.alb.nm.us ----- special thanks to: Nick Sayer John H. Kim mrapple@quack.sac.ca.us jokim@jarthur.claremont.edu Chris L. Adamson Tim Susman plucky@umcc.ais.org furrball@drycas.club.cc.cmu.edu Kevin J. Podsiadlik Robert Jung hampton@ais.org rjung@usc.edu Charles Brabec Will Bell brabec@pysgjb.ncsu.edu bell@cs.tamu.edu ----- INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE: This Reference Guide features the main credits for each episode of TINY TOON ADVENTURES, including official production title, first airdate, writers, directors, toon cast list, voiceover artists, animation houses, and -- of course -- the "gag" credit and end tag. Also to be found embedded within its depths are comments, gripes, praises, noteworthy observations and other witty asides by the folks on Usenet's alt.tv.tiny-toon. Give 'em a hand, won't you ... The Guide is best visualized in its four major parts: 1. Alphabetical Index of Episode Titles 2. Alphabetical Index of Shorts Titles 3. Chronological Listing of Episodes: First Season (1990-1991) 4. Chronological Listing of Episodes: Second Season (1991-1992) 5. Chronological Listing of Episodes: Third Season (1992-1993) Episodes are listed according to first airdate on TINY TOON ADVENTURES in the United States. (Some episodes or shorts may have debuted prior to TTA on THE PLUCKY DUCK SHOW; TPDS airdate information is given in context of the TTA listing.) Indexes give TTA airdates as locations for looking up a particular episode. All episode titles are the official Warner/Amblin production titles. Some official titles may not actually appear in the episode (i.e. multi-shorts episodes). Because of the lengthy nature of the Guide, on-line browsing, while initially fun and exciting, can become frustrating and cumbersome. Use a text editor's search command to jump straight to an episode or short title, guest star, etc.; or better yet, print out the contents on hardcopy (the smaller the font, the better) and staple together for an instant coffee-table book or VCR library companion -- the indexes in the front will tell you an episode or short's location, and the chronological listing will enable you to flip right to it. Any comments, error correction, criticisms, or general reports of citizens in peril brought to the attention of the editor are most appreciated.
