What is SPANTENNA?
Spantenna is a revision of the My Favorite Shows website that was started in 1997 by WebMistressGina. The initial idea behind the original site was to showcase the writings she had been doing for the Get Smart mailing list, though mostly it was to showcase her own original works. With the distractions of real life, the site began to change into a fan site, with close attention to Get Smart and Scooby Doo. The first MFS (as it was nicknamed) had four sections – Get Smart, Scooby Doo, The Monkees, and DangerMouse.
As she wrote more and more for Get Smart and doing more with Scooby Doo, sadly the Monkees and DangerMouse sections began to falter.
Finally in 2001, WMG scrapped the last two sections and replaced them with Reboot, a show she had recently discovered. GS and Scooby didn’t change.
Around 2005, WMG began to get an interest within the Knights of the Old Republic series of video games. Feeling a sense of disappointment with how the ending of the second game went, she began work on the story Force of Echos. Following a second playing of both the original and the second game, she began Knights of the Old Republic III: Revenge of the Sith, with more attention being spent on the entire Star Wars mythos as it related to the games. This was then followed by the official launching of a KOTOR section within the MFS.
With the introduction of this reinvention of the MFS, a new section has joined the MFS legacy and that is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. While the majority of the site is either fan fic or original works as the driving force, there are future plans to re-add the Scooby Doo section, despite never having any writing within it. With the addition of a Scooby section, only two areas of the original MFS will have been continually been featured on every reincarnation of the site; the other being Get Smart
Who is WEBMISTRESSGINA?
WebMistressGina, AKA WMG and Agent 66, is a native of Arizona.
Since 1997, WMG has written in many fandoms, including Reboot, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Muppets, and the show that began it all, Get Smart. While a majority of fictions are or will be located here at SPANTENNA, you can also find works on Fan Fiction.net (under Agent 66), Muppet Central (under WebMistressGina), and currently Archive of Our Own (under Agent66).
Despite the growing amount of content directed towards her favorite shows, WMG does have an extensive amount of original fiction that will, she swears, live here on SPANTENNA.
What’s the rating of the site?
The site in general is pretty much friendly to everyone, however there are cases where some stuff probably isn’t appropriate for the little tykes and those under 13 and some stuff might even be better for those 18 and up. You can check the general disclaimer to find out more.
Will the Other Sections of the MFS site return?
As the MFS grew, certain sections of the website were replaced or scraped. This included the Monkees, DangerMouse, and Scooby Doo. Additional adds to the Get Smart section - The MiSTs, Wiggles & Giggles - as well as those of ReBoot - The Mike Show - become popular among the fans of those particular shows.
Most likely these sections may not return, but as they say "never say never"; these were fan favorites and a lot of work from WMG and other collaborators means that they could return. So stay tuned!
