Basically, her cartoons were too suggestive for their target audience.

I read somewhere that the censors didn't like her too much and forced them to drop her. Funny thing is, they never complained about Hello Nurse, yet they complained about Minerva. This is one of those times when the censors just made absolutely no sense (despite the word being in their name :lol: ).

Her cartoons were considered to be too risque by the network, Plus, I think it might've been Bruce Timm...not sure, but someone said that after the first two shorts, they were really having a hard time coming up with new stuff for a character like Minerva to do, so they sort of dropped her. :| That being said, I'm not really sure what they'd do if she was ever brought back. But hey, anything can happen.

I've only seen like one Minerva cartoon. Personally, I thought she was kinda stuck-up from what I saw. She is attractive, though.

As her second and final outing showed, she's also supremely superficial. :|

I think another reason, other than being risqué, was how Minerva behaved. She is rather unlikable, personality-wise.

She knows that she is gorgeous, and she is vain, greedy and manipulative as a result of it. She moans about being single, and when somebody shows genuine affection towards her, whether she tricks them or not, she brushes them off as losers. Then, when an attractive boy, who is just as rude as she is, arrives on the scene, she'll behave just like characters such as Newt did. As a result, she is dismissed. She learns nothing from her rejections. She just bemoans "It's Not Pretty Being Me".

I think there may have been concerns about her setting a bad example to young children.

So, they gave her the boot because she was acting like some Hollywood snob?

According to Bruce Time, she was taken off for not giving the staff much to work with. Why she left and Buttons and Mindy were allowed to stay is beyond me.
