Description

This article is from the NARF--The Nifty Animaniacs Reference File FAQ, by Lee Cremeans wakky@yakko.wtower.com with numerous contributions by others.

37 Related files, lists, and other compendia (Animaniacs)

Only lists which have been posted and which the author seems to be
maintaining regularly will be listed. "Vapor" files (i.e., files that
were promised but never seen) and/or grossly obsolete files will not
be listed here, unless it's perceived they have value despite their
obsolescence, or unless I continue to forget to take them off.

All documents mentioned below are available. Try looking at Keeper's 'toons
page (http://www2.cruzio.com/~keeper/toons.html) or read a.t.a. until you
see someone who looks informed and then write a "begging" letter or six. If
you're trying to FTP, note that rasputin.fuzzy.com has replaced
rasputin.caltech.edu, that fabulously Animan-ey FTP site (in fact,
rasputin.caltech.edu has been gone since 1996; the name still resolves, but
don't let that fool you--there's nothing there). If you cannot FTP or have
any other questions, write to <ap057@lafn.org>, <lcremean@tidalwave.net>, or
<Lari35960@aol.com> and one of us will help you out (whatever you're asking
for; please give us some reasonable time to reply, of course). Will Bell's
old "docs-by-mail" server, as mentioned in the CRGA, is no longer up. If you
know exactly what file you want, you may want to look at Paul Vixie's
generic ftpmail server; send mail to ftpmail@ftpmail.vix.com with "help" in
the body for instructions.

1. THE FUTURE EPISODE LIST (FEL): A list of episodes and their scheduled
air dates as determined by Warner Bros. This has had a really
convoluted adventure since Animaniacs went to WB, but now things are
pretty "normal". Maintained by Brian Cruz.
http://pages.nyu.edu/~bpc200/fels.html

2. ANIMANIACS MERCHANDISE LIST: the FABOO. Everything a growing/aging
fan needs for their very own Animaniacs centered life, plus some
stuff for the less devoted types. Initiated by Marc Pawlinger, now
maintained by the Narfcake, (ap057@lafn.org)

3. THE ANIMANIACS NEW READER'S GUIDE (NRG): Feeling down? Feeling
clueless? Then run away...er, and get the Animaniacs New Reader's
Guide. Originated by Jay B. Parker, now maintained by Lee Cremeans.
http://st-lcremean.tidalwave.net/~lee/nrg.txt

4. THE ANIMANIACS MEGA LYRIC FILE (AMLF): A very extensive collection
of lyrics to songs sung in Animaniacs. Maintained by Ron O'Dell.
http://www2.cruzio.com/~keeper/AMLF.html

5. THE ANIMANIACS HANDY EPISODE MANUAL (AHEM): A quick summary of the
episodes including detailed information such as character
appearances, running times, and highlights of the episode credits,
as well as the studios that animated each short (no, they're not all
the same, silly new person.) Maintained by Ron "Keeper" O'Dell.
http://www2.cruzio.com/~keeper/AHEM.txt

6. THE CULTURAL REFERENCES GUIDE FOR ANIMANIACS (CRGA): Many of the
cultural references revealed and explained, plus random ramblings from
the newsgroup alt.tv.animaniacs. Extremely extensive for eps 1-69.
Created by Will Bell (wbb@netcom.com), now maintained and databased by
Rex Wheeler. Suzanne Smiley handles the plain-text version.
http://www.fuzzy.com/tooninfo/animaniacs/
http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/Lot/2636/crga.txt

7. THE ANIMANIACS PURITY TEST: Modeled after slightly more risque tests
you might have giggled over back in your k00L BBS daZE, the
Animaniacs Purity Test is loaded with questions to help you determine
just how big a fanboy you are. Well done and quite entertaining.
Originated by Brendan Dunn, now maintained by David Kendall.
http://www.mbnet.mb.ca/~weirdguy/afpt4.txt

8. THE POINTERS ON INSIGNIFICANT TECHNICALITIES FILE (POIT): A nitpickers
guide to Animaniacs, full of details about animation styles, animation
goofs, DYN's, and so forth. Available as text and in an HTML-ized form
for you web junkies. Maintained by Brendan Dunn. [Brendan has changed
ISPs, so the HTML version is apparently no longer available; I am not
sure if it is even being actively maintained anymore.]

9. A.C.M.E.L.A.B.S: The most comprehensive page available for Pinky and
the Brain, it includes a complete AYPWIP list, the cultural
references for PatB, the Pinky and the Brain Handy Episode Manual...
and much other great stuff. Maintained by Brian Norman.
http://members.aol.com/acmelabs1/index.html.

10. THE NEW ANIMANIACS CULTURAL REFERENCE GUIDE (NACRG): The
continuation of the CRGA, for episodes 70 and onward. Maintained by
Suzanne Smiley.

12. GUIDES TO A.T.A.

If you're finding this group confusing, we're not surprised. There are
two sources, the a.t.a. a.t.a. a.t.a. (aka that FAQ about all of the
people on a.t.a.) and the CED (Current Events Digest), both of which are
guaranteed to have been updated in the past year. And a half. And a
three-quarters ... plus a bit more. David
"plato@freenet.edmonton.ab.ca" Green is responsible for them. BTW, if
you don't always understand some of the words on a.t.a, you're not
alone. A short list can be found in the dictionary of Spotspeak, which
I should say is really, really dusty (spot hasn't been active
in anything Internet-related since late 1996) and really only of
historical value now; Nicola "DitziWarner" Makela has a
better, more up-to-date list at
http://members.tripod.com/~Ditzi/the-aid.htm (which was inspired by the
#watertower IRC community, mainly, but still useful for a.t.a).

13. SOUNDS & GRAPHICS FILES: Most FTP sites are no longer accepting or
distributing sound or image files which have been taken (digitized)
from Animaniacs because of the potential for legal problems related
to copyright violations. Most of the newsgroups where these were passed
around are gone now, so if you want them, you're on your own.
