In "Moon Over Minerva" she was courted by a geeky wolf by the name of Wilford B. Wolf, who becomes a gorgeous, muscular -type werewolf when a full moon rose.

Nonetheless, both Minerva and Newt appeared in several issues of the Animaniacs comic book (with Minerva's sexuality a bit watered down, but Newt still his ever-blundering self). She also appears in as an ensemble member, but has a couple solo lines to herself.
