    In the ending credits to each Pinky and the Brain episode, they define a "buzzword."  The only one I can remember is "Basilic," which means "royal or kingly."  And in Tiny Toons, they have really random subliminal messages at the same point in each ending credits.  Anyone else pay that much attention to the ending credits to learn these words?

    These sorts of things were common in Spielberg's cartoons, although I don't remember seeing it much in Animaniacs. In Freakazoid, it was usually "Find Emmitt Nervend: # times in this episode."

    My favorite word from the Pinky & the Brain credits is "ultracrepidarianism."

    In Animaniacs the joke credit was was always on the next to last page and it was always a strange job and the person was always Kathryn Page.

    Like Pit Bull Trainer - Kathryn Page or Cat herder - Kathryn Page.
