Welcome to the Buckaroo Banzai WikiEdit
A wiki dedicated to the exposition of all topics related to Buckaroo Banzai.
This is a brand new wiki as of November 2011, so be patient as the various authorities join in (I hope) in adding content. Most of the experts barely keep up with things on the Yahoo! group and the World Watch One newsletters, so this might take a while. Furthermore, there are already a few websites dedicated to Dr. Banzai, so this wiki might never go anywhere, because the last thing I/we want to do is interfere with traffic to the World Watch One site, the Banzai Institute site, and the Yahoo! group. So, maybe this will be good, and maybe it'll be nothing. It just seemed like a good outlet for a collaborative project to get lots of tiny trivial bits of info out there (and I couldn't believe there wasn't already a related wiki here).
