Abbreviations and full names

So, I will say an abbreviation, then you need to say what is the full name.

Here is an example:

1. JTM
(1) I don't know (that person does not know that abbreviation)
(1) julianthemath

The second line after "1. JTM" wins. He/she gets a point.

Let's start!

Big Bubba Cartwright. He was the missing son of Ben Cartwright, owner of the Ponderosa ( shown below ). He was never on the show but somehow you get the feeling that he must exist.
