    I don't remember much about this movie other than the fact that it was a bunch of guys inside of a truck, driving, and at (what I think was) the end, the truck didn't have the back-rack anymore. If I recall correctly, there was fighting on the road. Reply

      Was it live action? Also when did you see this?

      It was live action, yes, and I saw it when I was waaaaay younger. Let's say 2006-7 the latest.

    It was on computer. It was one of those car games where the floor and ceiling and both perfectly flat and stretch out for ages. You were some kind of vehicle (maybe a hovercar?), and you had to race around collecting flags of your colour. You had to end up with more flags than your opponent did. I think you could run into your opponent or shoot them or something to knock flags off them? It was at least a two-player game. This would've been sometime in the late 90s/early 2000s Reply

    There was the Halloween special on I believe it was Cartoon Network. It was split into about 8 episodes. It was 2 birds, one was more panicky than the other. One had a beard and walked with a staff. The birds fought witches and ghosts. I remember one part of one episode exactly and its that the birds were being chased by zombies or skeletons and they jumped a tall brown fence. The birds looked to be cracked out. I have no idea what this show is called, but it's been bothering me for a month now and for some reason today a picture of what one of the bird things looked like came to my head. What is this show??

    A (British?) children's illustrated storybook which featured a crew of marauding pirate rats (pirats?) complete with their own Blackbeard Expy as leader who abducted a fair maiden (possibly a princess?) and caused her brother (or boyfriend? or platonic friend?) to join with a group of "good" pirate rats (or was it 1800s era Royal Navy sailor expies?) and track them down to rescue her. I think the climax involved a stealth infiltration of the ship where they had to climb up the bow, along ropes etc but they got found out so it degenerated into a massive battle including numerous cutlass duels especially between The Hero and the Big Bad. Might also have had some trickery by the good guys to disguise someone as the maiden, or something along those lines. Illustration was excellent; it looked like more or less what you'd expect anthropormophic rats to look like in a mostly realistic, very slightly stylised fashion. Most of the action was at night so with dark illumination. Google gives numerous other children's stories/shows about pirats, but not this one AFAICT. Reply

    That's about the only part I can remember about it. Story was something along the lines of: Dark ruler forces magical trolls to sleep and transforms them into eggs, Princess is locked up in tower as she has the magical power (song) to break the spell, Eggs find their way to said princess, she sings and eggs hatch. I guess it has to be early 90's Reply

    I need to find the name of a film that my partner's daughter has been watching at school - I only have the details she gave me so I am sorry there isn't much to go on. I think it is rated 15, and it isn't animated. A girl lives in a haunted house. When she goes into the bathroom and turns on the bath taps blood comes out of the taps into the bath. She described dead bodies covered in blood rising out of the floor of the house. Ghosts. She also described a dark hairy hand looming over the girl. The girl wants to move house but they cannot afford to. I really hope you can help me! Reply

    I remember playing this computer game that had the alphabet in old fashioned letter blocks lined up onscreen. Clicking on each letter/block would produce different effects, like for example, clicking on the Z block would make a child's voice say "Z...[sounding out the letter] zzzz...Zap!" And then you could click on the blocks to "zap" them with a thunder sound effect, which would turn them from capital letters to lowercase letters, and make the blocks smaller. Does anyone remember this game? Reply

    This cartoon about a handful of dinosaurs who called fruit "tree sweets" and they were looking for frozen fruit which they called "hard-water sweets". It was winter, which they called "The Cold Times" and one of them (I think the one who told the protagonists about the sweets) was called Mr. Thicknose. I think one of them didn't believe in hard water sweets. Reply

    There was this old computer game for kids. It opened with three anthropomorphic animals sitting at a bus stop. A lion, a pig (I think), and (I think) a sheep, ram, or goat. Clicking one of them took you to their occupation, where you had to help them out. Or, you could click the building next to the bus stop and watch a line of ants crawl up it, singing in deep, male voices.

    The lion worked at some sort of theater or classical music venue. I honestly don't remember much about his segment, except that a singing mouse opens it up, but then disappears when the lion and player arrive. Also, the tassels on one of the curtains clapped when you clicked them.

    The pig worked at a post office. You had to place packages into their designated slots or whatever, which differed by shape and size, and possibly color. Off the top of my head, I know that there were circular packages.

    Finally, our ovine/caprine friend worked at some sort of concession stand, and the player had to get customer's orders right. This was my favorite section (I love games that emphasize food). The customers were all sorts of other animals.

    Even my brother doesn't remember, and our childhoods are identical. I can't for the life of me find anything relating to this game anywhere. Reply

      Another hint, it played in a theater in Chicago's North Side in the winter months.

      Could it have been Chunmiao (1975)? http://asianwiki.com/Chunmiao

      The film wasn't made in the 70s, and that when we see the girl in the present day, she is driving a car from the 2000s.

      Ah, I see. Could it have been Under The Hawthorn Tree?: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Under_the_Hawthorn_Tree_(film)

      Nope, I don't believe there was a romance in the film, just her going into the village, going back to the village, and remembering it while driving.

    An old song that goes: Enter the forest on tippy toes. Who could be lurking there? No one knows. Could he be friendly? What do you suppose? He's a dragon with a cold in the nose. Looking for him is pretty easy, follow the sound of all that sneezing. How would you feel with so much wheezing? Poor dragon has a cold in the nose. His eyes are pretty bleary. It could make a fellow weary and dreary. Nothing could make a dragon low as having a nose too big to blow. Ask any dragon you happen to know? What gives a dragon such pain? What drives a dragon insane? What makes a dragon pout? What puts his fire out? Nothing that walks or talks or groans. It's a [unknown lyric] like a cold in the nose.

    A live action show. All I saw was part of an episode. It was set in outer space and it had this blond dude who was possessed by aliens or something and was running around in his PJs. I'm a huge Trekkie so I think I would have recognised it if it was Star Trek. I think a guy was eating pizza at one point. And it began with a speech on how amazing space is with a picture of a spaceship. Reply

    I found a Pokémon fancomic series a few months ago that told stories using only Pokémon Amie screenshots. I recall one comic where Arceus falls asleep. Giratina, Yveltal, and Mewtwo try to throw a party, only for Xerneas to stop them. Another comic joked that a Furfrou (I don't recall if they were named) could safely eat the chocolate cupcakes in Pokémon Amie because they were made from fake chocolate, which a chocolate-loving Dewott (I think his name was Miju?) does not take kindly to. There was also a subplot that delved into the relationship issues that a Meowstic (Mao) has, which he argues with a Buizel (Bui Bui) about. Reply

      Isn't it from Star Wars?

      Thanks, but I don't think that's it.

      Given the context, are you sure it's something you've actually heard tonnes of times before and not something deliberately written to sound like a tonne of things you've heard before?

      I'm pretty sure it's some piece of stock music, but then again, you could be right. Guess I'll know if I ever hear it again!

      sounds like a knockoff of the Star Wars theme.

    This is weird, because I feel like this must be regional at this point. It was a parody of "It's the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine)" by REM that was something like "it's the end of the week and I know it" or something. I used to live up in Marquette, Michigan and a radio station somewhere around there would play it every Friday morning. Also among the words that I can remember are "it always starts on Friday". I've been looking for this for years, with little luck. I finally found proof that it exists, but now even that is gone. Reply

    I've been trying to figure it out for a while now, and I still don't know the name of this game...
    Anyhow, as you might have seen from the title, it's a Christmas-themed 2d platform game. It was for the PC, and I'm pretty sure it dates from either the 90s or the early 2000. The game stars a Christmas elf as the character the player controls, and it has 25 (or maybe just 24) levels. I think the first level(s) is/are a place made of candy.
    The main mechanic of the game is that your player character possesses a candy cane that works like a jetpack (as in you can propel yourself into the air with it, complete with a combustion flare if I'm not mistaken). The jetpack candy cane also has some sort of gas meter in the top left corner of the screen which depletes as you propel yourself into the air, and instantly replenishes when you touch the ground. Collecting candy canes scattered across the level you're playing on increases the gas amount you have (allowing you to propel yourself more before you run out of gas and start falling), which resets upon exiting/completing the level.
    I think that, in each level, you have to collect multiples of an item to spawn a door that would lead to the next level being unlocked, but I can't remember the exact item you have to collect. Perhaps something that pertains to Christmas like everything else in the game.
    The one music I can remember playing in the game is a reiteration of Joy to the World (I think it played outside of actual gameplay, like at the title screen, level select etc.), and I'm pretty sure the rest of the soundtrack is based on classic Christmas music as well.
    That's all I can remember right now. I hope someone will be able to figure it out for me as I couldn't and searching didn't help much. Reply

      This is unlikely as it's just an online game rather than a PC game, but just in case you've confused any of the details, it sounds vaguely like Adventure Elf. http://www.primarygames.com/holidays/christmas/games/adventureelf/

      Nope, that's not it, I already had seen that and that's not the game. There was no timer and I'm pretty sure the plot didn't revolve around penguins stealing gifts. And the game was strictly a PC game; an internet connection was a luxury for me back when I was little (as in it wasn't very affordable and common), and so there was no way this game could've been a browser game.

    I'm honestly not even sure if this is a show or not, but here it is, from all I remember: It's set in the later 2000s(not sure what year), and I believe just one city, and everything is almost the same as it was in the 1900s. Then at some point the was this person that comes along, but living in modern time, and at one point the person asks why they live like that. That's all I remember from it Reply

      There was a series from the BBC called The 1900s House where modern people tried to live in every way as people did in the 1900s. It was one of several Historical Re Creation shows that were produced around the early 2000s. Could that have been it?

      Maybe The Village?

    This would have been around the year 2000. Possibly cartoon network but not sure. The show was about three aliens with blue, pink, and green skin. The green alien was a nerd, the blue alien had a big forehead, and the pink alien was the girl. For some reason there was an emphasis on thumb-wrestling, which the characters referred to as "The Battle of the Brains!"

    It might have been from the creators of Mega Babies as I remember there was a short film about the creation of Mega Babies right before the alien show where the creators discussed how they invented the series. I also seem to remember it being in a similar drawing style. But it's not Mega Babies as I can't find the all-important 'Battle of the Brains' quote in it.

      It doesn't match up exactly but could it be Space Goofs?

      That looks familiar somehow, so you might be right, but what the heck is this thumb-wrestling thing I'm remembering so clearly? Are there any episodes where they thumb wrestle?

      I also remember a Thumb Wars show on Cartoon Network.

      No, it wasn't the live-action thumb wars show from the mid-2000s. This was a cartoon that I would have seen around 1999.

      The Replacements? Not sure about the Swahili part, but the son was failing German, had his teacher replaced with an actual German so his parents wouldn't know (Because the adoptive father didn't know German), they went to some Suck E. Cheese's or something, the main machine messed up and the English Instructions were torn up, leaving German and some other language. Probably Swahili.

    Two kids (brother and sister?) somehow hide a giant box with a shiny dragon scale which they use to transport themselves of a land populated by (you guessed it) dragons. They then go back and forth every episode, going to the magical dragon land. It might have been on PBS? This is driving me mad. Reply

    So this has been bothering me for a while now! I remember playing a game as a kid where it was one of those story computer games? You know, the ones where you can interact and have kind of a point-and-click screen as you read a book? It was one of those and I remember the plot vaguely. It was about these monsters who all had noses that were like instruments. (Think Squidward's clarinet style.) and they all rejected this one monster. He eventually went on to be a conductor and stuff and it was really cute.

    The basic premise is of the little mermaid story, but the drawings, though very simple, looked slightly anime-ish. The mermaid was called Freida (? unsure of the spelling) and she had these two little sidekicks. One was pink with a oval round nose and sounded like he had a cold when it spoke. The other sidekick was a female and drawn larger than the pink sidekick. I think she was white. The one scene I remember was of the prince riding through the forest, then next he was on the grass on his back, laughing with the girl he chose to marry. Freida and her sidekicks were in the distance watching them while Freida does a voice-over. She does a lot of voice over. Freida hiding behind a blue-sh white curtain, pulling it aside and another voice-over debating whether she can do it (kill the prince) or not. A scene showing her hand holding a thin knife, trembling. An anguished Freida wailing silently, voice over saying she can't do it. In the end, she flings herself to the sea. The scene ends with her two sidekicks pink and white lamenting her turning to sea foam and the sun dawning as the ending notes start.

    This show was aired maybe around 1990, maybe earlier or just after. Thank you for any suggestions Reply
