Season 6 Letter & Number Sponsors

Seasons 4, 5 and 6 have nearly the same pattern, but only Season 6 has enough info here to show the entire pattern. However, the pattern abruptly ends with Episode 0766 and after this, it becomes utterly random. Season 7 appears to inaugurate a new pattern.
As before, the numbers cycle through 2-12. The letters, which also cycle, have seven variable positions:
1: eddd
2: deee
3: rfii
4: vyyy
5: fiff
6: irrr
7: yvv

I just made the startling observation that, if you ignore 1446, 1576, 2226 and 2486, every episode we physically have for Seasons 3-20 has two letters and one number except for every season premiere which has one letter and one number. Just look, for example, Episode 1706, Episode 1707, etc. That seems consistent enough to convince me most of Season 6 should have two letters and one number for its episodes.

I wonder if the episodes from 766 through the end of the season could in fact be reruns of earlier shows carried over and mixed together with their original sponsors intact? I suppose there's no substantial proof, but it's a possibility. --Andrew T. 19:27, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
