Minerva's stock in trade was driving every male, no matter what his species, into glorious wild take-filled Tex Avery-styled conniptions at her beauty. However, when she spots a sexy male, she goes into lustful spasms of her own.
In "Moon Over Minerva", she was courted by a geeky wolf who became a gorgeous, muscular Fabio type hunk when a full moon rose. In "Meet Minerva", a dachshund named Newt (voice of Laugh-In veteran Arte Johnson) is ordered by his master to catch Minerva for her pelt. Foolish Newt becomes smitten with her instead and spends his time trying to capture her heart, catering to her every little whim.
She starred in the least number of shorts of all the ensemble cast, allegedly on account that the content of her shorts was so overtly sexual that it was decided that it would be inappropriate for the intended predominantly children's audience. For instance, Minerva is often seen in silhouette in the nude. In "Meet Minerva", the final wild take of Newt climaxes with him bonking himself on the head and developing a long phallic bump that lifts Minerva between her legs with his head (although the bump is not seen then). She was also terribly vain and shallow and probably considered a poor role model for little girls. However, both Minerva and Newt appeared in several issues of the Animaniacs comic book (with the mink's sexuality a bit watered-down, but Newt still his ever-blundering self).
