The Warner Bros. animated series/variety show Animaniacs was rumored to have had a number of Minerva Mink shorts aside from the two released (Meet Minerva and Moon Over Minerva) that never saw the light of day.


The rumor of unaired shorts was assumed due to the excessively risqué content of the Minerva Mink shorts that were released, and that only two were ever made.

Additionally, the two shorts had already been edited in post-production by broadcasters such as Teletoon Retro, contributing to the rumors.

On airing Meet Minerva on their channel, the title card was different, but it was the same short as Moon Over Minerva. Notably, her cleavage was clumsily erased in close-up scenes.

the originals are not lost, they are on daily motion, that's all.
