This page shows how to properly create and format a Series page.

These pages are written from a real world perspective.

Title

This is the title of the series with a parenthetical (TV Series) afterwards. If there are multiple series with the same name, then the year is added, such as Spider-Man (1967 TV Series) and Spider-Man (1981 TV Series). Marvel Animated Universe series do not have a year.

Introduction

This is a brief introduction of the series. The name and alternate names are bolded.

There should be some information about when it aired, how long, and any notable information.

Story

This is a general summary of the story. This does not go into too many specifics.

Background

This is a detailed summary of the behind-the-scenes of the series. This includes how the series was started, the people involved, and the production of the series.

This can also include censorship issues.

Seasons

This should list the pages for each season. This would also contain a summary of the changes of the series between the season.

Proposed Stories

This is any story that had been in some stage of planning but not used. This can be stories abandoned for one reason or another, or stories that had been planned before the series ended.

Animation

This describes the style of animation, companies, animators, and any information about the look of the series.

Merchandising

This includes all information about commercial tie-ins to the series, other than a comic book. This can be toys, video games, or other merchandise. The merchandise must be related to the series. Merchandise for a character used by the series but not directly related to the series is not accepted.

Comic Book

This is for any comic book tie-in for the series. The comic book must be officially licensed and inspired by the series. For example, Ultimate Spider-Man includes information on the Ultimate Spider-Man comic tie-in to the series but not the Ultimate Spider-Man that originally inspired the show.

Crew

This is a list of the crew who had a significant impact on the series. This would be people such as writers, producers, and editors. This should not include every single person involved. Crew members who had one or few works with the series should be left off. Instead, they would be listed under a Full Credits page. The list is put into a table.

Voice Cast

This is a list of every person who voiced a character on the series. It is broken up into Main Cast, Recurring Cast, and Guest Cast. Each list is put in a table.

If the actor voiced multiple people, then all the characters are listed with them. If multiple people voiced a single character, then the character is listed under each name.

The Main Cast is all the people and characters who were regularly seen throughout. While they do not have to be in every single episode, they should play a significant part.

Recurring Cast is all those who are not the main but have several notable appearances. Recurring Cast would also include the Additional Voices, those who voice the nameless extras sprinkled throughout the series.

Guest Cast is notable names that make relatively few appearances. This can also be if a notable name voiced a character but was replaced by another for multiple appearances, such as Martin Landau playing Scorpion.

Awards

These are the awards won by the series. The award must be notable, such as Annie Awards or Emmy. This can also be an appearance on a Best of, or possibly Worst of, list that a reputable site made.

Reception

This is the general reviews of the series as a whole. Specific marks for a particular episode should be left to the episode page, though episodes can be used in examples.

External Links

These are where all the links to external sites should go. It should start with official pages, if any. Then there should be well-known and peer-reviewed sites, such as Marvel Animation Age or Internet Movie Database. Sites easily edited would go last, such as Wikipedia and Marvel Database.

Categories

A series should have two categories: the one for the series, such as Spider-Man: The New Animated Series, and whatever larger universe the series is involved with, such as Christopher Yost Animated Universe if any. If the series is currently airing then it should have Currently Airing Series. If the series has yet to air then it should have Unreleased Media. No category is given for completed series.
