Find an Episode's Title from a Character's Name
Unless you have a computer near your TV set, this feature will be of dubious utility. However, it was fun to develop. It's a little Java script, you see. It looks up a character's name and tells you the show that the character was in. Please wait for the page to complete loading before using. Click the Find Show button to try the sample!
A single first or last name will work if it's unique. If not, enter the full name, first and last. Still no success? Try another character. Remember, spelling can be tricky. Don't use initials, titles, ranks, abbreviations, occupations or descriptions. Entry is not case sensitive.
Ugly Details: This feature does a simple linear search of a list. The first part of the list contains unique single first or last names. The second part contains selected first-name last-name pairs, one name of which is usually not unique. Middle names have been removed. Duplicate names have been removed so some characters just aren't there. The spelling of some names has been "improved." The complete list has about 3,300 entries.
