Two issues

  1. The name. I seriously doubt that anyone, be they an expert on H*R or not, would ever search for "Hyphen-have" when looking for a page like this. What better names could this article be known as?
  2. The appearances. At the moment, no older toons are listed, and I can't think of any appearances off the top of my head that are from older toons. This may sound silly, but is there a rule against every instance of a running gag being from newer toons? It's just that I have... something against articles about running gags that are exclusive to newer toons.

  1. The ability to search for a name is not the most important part of a name, but whether the name accurately covers the topic. The fact is, more often a page is going to be found by someone clicking on a link than searching for a specific page. That's not what a rename issue is about.
  2. No, there's no such rule. A running gag could turn up at any time. Onion Bubs is pretty recent, for example.

I know the name's kinda bleh, but I couldn't think of anything that would fit it well enough. "Noun-Verb" is an idea, but that's just one thing I've thought of. StrongAwesome 19:38, 24 November 2011 (UTC)
I think "X-Have" may be a better name. --NobleSkull 19:49, 24 November 2011 (UTC)
While it's an idea, "have" isn't the only word that is used, such as "make" and "take". StrongAwesome 19:54, 24 November 2011 (UTC)
