** The "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/bored/tvguideads13.html Fall 1989]]" installment of "The Ancient Lost Art of ''TV Guide'' Advertising" includes a promo for a TV movie called ''Brand New Life''. The promo shows Barbara Eden, of ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'' fame, carrying seven little people on a silver platter, so Peter admits that he'd only watch the movie if Eden's character magically shrunk people.

* OldShame: In its formative years, the site contained no archive. Some cartoons were literally up for only one week and then banished forever. The practice was originally due to limited storage space (it began as a [=GeoCities=] site) but was continued until 2006 as a means of quality control (anything Peter didn't regret making was given a position in a selective archive section). Most of the pre-2006 works are still offline, but lately they have turned up in book collections.
