    This show where either this girl wants to become a singer and she ends up either with a job at a record label or she is signed to the record label. I guess she was considered a rookie around the studio and people made her do stuff like get coffee and babysit other artist. I remember at some point she was either hiding somewhere or she fell. I remember this boy he was either a solo artist or in a band and he like played a guitar. i think she fell in love wth a boy. not sure if there was a romance. I think somehow she got famous by her singing and was a popular artist. i hope someone can help me Reply

      Long shot, but part of Pitch Perfect has the main character working at the college radio station...

      Its not a movie, i believe it is a show. But i see where you get pitch perfect from. but its not that

      This isn't a record label or radio, but this sounds a lot like Sonny With A Chance?

    Ok so im fairly certain this was live tv. It was probably 90s, but it could of been 80s. Theres a bunch of people sitting in some diner and a man goes to the entrance and opens the door to reveal they are in outer space. Do you remember what this was from? Reply

      That sounds like the final episode of Sapphire & Steel.

      Hmm well it definitely fits the description, but i seem to remember a darker setting and the diner had one of those glass pie holder things on the counter.

      Could also be that episode of Farscape where Crighton dispels the illusion by walking into a bar and opening the door to the Ladies' Room, revealing a Swirly Energy Thingy behind because it could not be simulated from his memories (since he never went there).

    I recall this short story (not sure the year it was written, probably sometime between 1950 and 1985, I know that isn't helpful). I don't remember the name of the author or the story but I remember the plot well. I think it was in an anthology book I owned as a teenager and have subsequently lost over several moves.

    A man of Native American descent works for a high level diplomatic office in a near-future earth that has interplanetary spaceflight but hasn't yet left the solar system or contacted intelligent life beyond Earth. Suddenly a number of alien spaceships arrive in the solar system and the diplomatic office is trying to figure out how to make a successful first contact. The diplomat, a thoroughly assimilated individual, invites his irascible grandfather, who himself prefers to use cliches and stereotypes to obscure all that he doesn't know about his ancient heritage, and somehow the old man becomes involved in the negotiations. The aliens are bird-like creatures who seem to be interested in territorial conquest. They hit it off with the old Native American who charms them (and cons the rest of humanity) into accepting "reservation status" for Earth. Earth becomes an "Indian Reservation" in space where the paternalistic aliens can contain the spread of human culture and violence. Reply

    This one is pretty vague. Its probably 80s, but im not sure if its film or live tv. The details i remember are a man enters some kind of cave and encounters someone inside who he unknowingly sets free. It was an evil character. Probably the devil or maybe the anti christ.

    What are the ads used in this montage from this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2mf8DtWWd8? Thanks. Reply

      Bump. Please help.

      You've edited it out now, but the list you had before of all the ones you've already identified would actually be really helpful to post again for anyone that wanted to try their hand at searching! Since you've already found so many, someone could end up spending a lot of time tracking down ones that you already know about.

      Girlfriend; Beach Road; Tracy; Car Crash Nightmare; Joey; Gravel; Bones; Country Kids - "Darren!"; Mum in a Hurry; Young Cops; Don't Get In; Christmas Accident; 12 Days of Christmas - Monday, Wednesday; 12 Days of Christmas - Thursday, Sunday; 10km less; Vice Versa; Haunted; Blame; Never; Powernap; Drowning; Blood Test; Little Bit Dead; HELP - version 1; HELP - version 2; Levels; Swap; The Ride; The Pub; Curtain Airbags; Want Some?/The Cell; Pinball; No Accident & the Wife; We'll Catch You Before Someone Gets Hurt - version 1; We'll Catch You Before Someone Gets Hurt - version 2; Double Bus; Reconstruction; Nightshift; Prison; Pictures of You; Fireball; Glasses; See the Light; Don't Tempt Fate; Bush Telegraph; Slo-Mo; What Hurts Most; Motherless Child; When? (Metro version); Snap; Courtroom

      I saw all these ads, I contacted TAC a few days ago, I also asked on Reedit (only one person responded) and Yahoo Questions (nothing), and I even asked on the You-Tube video comment section. I know if you saw my other thread, you are not particularly fond of how I acted, but please. I do not know if TAC will respond and I really want to find out the other ads. I know some are still left.

      Bump

      Bump. Still no response from TAC, it has been about six days. No ideas at all?

      In case, anyone cares, TAC responded to me last night. TAC gave me a list of all ads that are available to watch on You-tube. Many are on the channel, but I do not have time to watch them all. I did not tell TAC which ones I already could identify, but that could help solve things faster.

      Bump.

      Bump

      Bump.

      Bump.

      Bump, come on. Does no one know? I will just keep on bumping until someone helps.

      I mean, given that you bumped eight times without a response, we kinda figured as much. I'm sorry that nobody has been able to help you yet, but being impatient may make those who do know feel less willing to lend a hand. I hope you do find what you're looking for eventually.

      I am sorry for being rude and for being impatient, but it is quite surprising to me why no one is at least trying to help. I asked this on Yahoo questions, nothing. I asked this on Reedit, only one responded with an ad. I even asked in the comment section for the You-tube video, nothing. I emailed TAC about one or two weeks ago, and all they could do is refer to me a link on their You-tube channel of their ads, which are too many that I have time for, so only few days ago I responded to them with the ads that I could make out, doubt they will respond though. I already identified most, but some are still left. If no one knows, I understand, but I am sure at least someone here can help me out.

      if someone knows, they'll chime in. they're not deliberately ignoring you.

      Well, someone will respond eventually. They are TAC ads for Pete's sake, they can't be that unidentifiable.

      Bump

      Bump!

      Don't know why I'm bothering, but bump.

      Can anyone please help? I asked this again on Yahoo questions, nothing. Only one person responded on Reedit, and TAC responded, but just directed me to their You-Tube channel where I could see every ad by them or promoted by them, there are tons. I responded with all the ads I could identify, have not heard back, and this was weeks ago. I even asked under the comment section for the video, no answer at all. Please I should ask which moments of the montage I am trying to identify, the ads from:

      1:12-1:17, 1:36-1:37, and 3:25-3:27

      Please, I do not know who else to ask, and the IMDB unfortunately closed their message boards down.

      Comparing the wikipedia descriptions of TAC ads with the segments you are asking for, they may or may not be any of: "Six O'Clock News," "Speed Cameras," or, "Courthouse." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transport_Accident_Commission#Television_advertising Unfortunately I can't find those ads anywhere, so I can't verify whether those are the ads you're looking for or not.

      I can see that all the segments you are trying to identify predate 1999, as the same footage is present in the 1999 version of the same ad montage at 1:02-1:08, 1:24-1:28, and, 3:07-3:09: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45oV6PssNu4

      You may have already known all this, and I'm sorry I can't be of more help, but I do not know specifically what ads they are. Hopefully I have at least narrowed things down for you. Maybe you want to contact the TAC asking for those three ads I suggested at the beginning? Though, again, they may not even be what you're looking for.

      I hope you find what you are looking for, at any rate.

      Well, I appreciate the help. I will search those ads. I already contacted TAC, but did not ask about those specific ads. I will try again. Thank you again.

      Bump, for the meantime.

    The animation is similar to A Cowboy Needs a Horse, the animated Disney short, so this could very well be another Disney animated short. All I remember is seeing this sorcerer, I think a warlock, similarly dressed as a traditional witch, singing, and being in what I think was a barn. He was singing about gold. My folks recorded a bunch of shows on a VHS tape that we have, so I will try to the tape to identify more, but that could take a while (we are moving soon and put things away), but hopefully someone here will remember this. I know it is not much to go on, but please help, thanks. Reply

      The Smurfs? Gargamel had this habit of breaking into a short song about how he'll use smurfs as spell ingredients to create gold.

      No, but thanks. I will try to search for the vhs tape but I do not know where it is.

      Bump

      Bump. I remember the sorcerer wearing a robe and speaking in a deep voice. If that helps.

      Could it have been an adaptation of the old fairytale "Rumpelstiltskin?"

      No. He was not short, he was tall. I am pretty sure he was a warlock or wizard. He looked like a male witch, but it has been a while since I saw it. He had a deep voice, not scary though, and I remember him sprinkling dust on the ground singing about a gold while outside a barn. I cannot remember any other characters. The entire short was a song. I saw this in the early 90s. It was not the Smurfs.

      O-k, I browsed through all our VHS tapes and did not find the video this was recorded on. Here is all I know. I saw this in the early 90s. It was in color. The animation is quite similar to A Cowboy Needs a Horse, a Silly Symphonies Disney short, it might be another Silly Symphonies cartoon. It is not the Smurfs, but the main character is a singing wizard or warlock (wearing a black robe), I do not think he had warts, probably did, he was obviously a male witch if not similar to one. He was singing about gold, sprinkling stuff onto the ground. It was outside a barn. I cannot remember any other characters or anything else. It was night time in the cartoon not day, and it was a short, musical short. Please help, thanks.

      I looked through a list of Silly Symphonies cartoons and didn't see anything that sounded like this. Was the entire cartoon about the warlock, or was it just one scene?

      It was the entire cartoon, if I remember correctly, but it has been a while since I last saw it and as said, I cannot locate the VHS tape. The tape was just recorded shows. It might not have been a Silly Symphonies cartoon, but as pointed several times, the animation is quite similar to the Silly Symphonies short, a Cowboy Needs a Horse, same musical style, same animation. I am not entirely sure if it was Disney though,

      If this helps. The warlock/wizard sounds much like the Ace of Clubs from Disney's Alice in Wonderland. I was listening to Disney songs on a CD to work today, Painting the Roses Red, and when I heard the card sing, "in fact, they will soon be dead", it made me think of the voice of this character, a deep monotone. The short was not sinister, and was definitely for kids.

      Bump. I am still trying to locate the VHS tape. I asked this on Reedit, two responded, but neither the right answer. I appreciate the help. Unfortunately, I cannot remember much of the warlock/wizard, but he was brown with a black robe. I cannot remember if he had warts. As he sprinkled dust, he did not use a wand, but his hands.

      Someone suggested the Sorcerer's Apprentice (not Fantasia) and someone else suggested a Wizard of Oz short, but neither is what I am searching for. I cannot remember if the male character as a warlock or a wizard, but it clearly looked like a male witch, his clothing, his evilness, his voice. Does this ring no bells to anyone?

      bump, saw it in 1993-1996, though the short was most likely from much earlier in the U.S. if that helps

    There's this girl who buys a necklace from a shop, and becomes haunted/stalked by some ghost boy. Only she can see the ghost because of the necklace. She goes back to the shop to return the necklace, but the shop isnt there anymore. She also has a crush on her senpai, who's her neighbor or something?

When they solved all of the problems, they go back to their home out of the computer. Reply

      The premise sounds like the show Cyber Chase, although the characters in that show are a white boy, a black girl, and a girl with glasses that could be read as white (I don't know offhand what her race was).

    I remember reading (probably on this very site) about some series with a material that is like, literally nothing, but it reacts to thoughts and if someone gets near it it becomes whatever that person is thinking about. Any idea what story that's from? Reply

      So I'm assuming not, but sometimes it does turn out to be the Big Obvious Thing and the OP just wasn't familiar with it— it's not the Room of Requirement from Harry Potter?

      Nah, it's not Harry Potter.

      Sounds like the substance Stuff, which features in The Gone-Away World by Nick Harkaway.

      It could have been Ever-So-Much-More-So, which comes from one of Robert McCloskey's Homer Price books.

    Hi. This was a British or Australian fantasy children's TV show in the late 1960s. It was set in a woods,and garden. The children were stranded there, and they had to avoid a huge floating pumpkin, maybe 2-3 metres in diameter and slow moving.

    Does anyone remember this children's book (80s or 90s?) about these two little bears siblings (90% sure they were bears). Their parents went out for the evening and then the bear children got really scared because they thought there was a monster outside, and they couldn’t wake up their babysitter who kept sleeping on a comfy chair.Eventually, their parents came back and they found out the monster was just a kite that got stuck in a tree and then they all ate cookies. I'm pretty sure the big babysitter bear says "me three" when the parents ask who wants cookies. It s driving me absolutely insane trying to remember. Please ease my pain. Thank you. Reply

      It wouldn't have been one of the Berenstain Bears books, would it?

      Nope. Not Berenstain Bears. I had a bunch of those, but this one was a little square book I think. I am almost certain the cover was bordered in a light blue.

      Is it a Little Bear book, perhaps?

      its not Little Bear...

      Now it's driving me up the wall too. I clearly remember this book, but my brain keeps remembering it as a Berenstain Bears one. But it's not, and I have no clue what book it is.

      Are you dead certain it's not the Berenstain Bears In The Dark? I remember this book too, i know I've read it, and I could swear it's this.

      I am certain that it isn't the Berenstain Bears. I had tons of those, including the "In the Dark" one, and that isn't it.

      Does it even have the word "bear" in the title or no?

      Was it perhaps one of the Little Critter books, by Mercer Mayer?

      i don't know if "bear" is in the title. I really wish I did. I'm fairly certain it was not a Little Critter book. We had those too, but this was not that. This one feels like some off-brand type of book

      UPDATE: Ok— so my mom thinks that the same book involved messages of fire safety: the little boy bear used matches and burnt his fingers and had to have bandages. The scary tree outside scraped at the window. It MAY have been a fire safety book.

      Might it be Teddy Bear Tales? https://www.amazon.com/Book-Five-Minute-Teddy-Bear-Tales/dp/1843228890

      I remember the Bubbles series of books, which featured a monkey (not a bear) and his brother who got into similar hijinks, including one in which Bubbles burns himself.

      Nope, not those...

      This sound familiar to me, but I don't quite remember it either. It's not one of the "Rupert Bear" books is it? https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjDhZvs1ZnVAhWJS7wKHflTC8AQFggoMAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FRupert_Bear&usg=AFQjCNE7YmHixFgqNiuf8qWh9-gYT1Yumw

    Trying to find a book for my mom. She said she read it while she had the flu, so the details might be a little fuzzy, but essentially, she thinks it took place in 1900s, Ireland, and depicted real events. It was about a young girl who was accused of being a witch by her family, and one of the things they did to "test" whether she was a witch involved throwing her into the fireplace, and if she burned, she was a witch. Of course, she burned, but they let her leave the fireplace, and she started having convulsions from being horribly burned, and the family claimed this was more proof that she was a witch. She emphasized that this was extra disturbing because, again, it depicted real events. Reply

      The real-life case that it's based on may be that of Bridget Cleary - she died in 1895 rather than in the 1900s, but perhaps it's close enough. There have been a few books about the case - two which I can find are The Burning of Bridget Cleary by Angela Bourke and The Cooper's Wife is Missing by Joan Hoff. I can't guarantee that either of those is right, though.

      Thanks so much! I'll have to check with my mom to see if that's who she was thinking of, but I'll let you know if you're right. I really appreciate it. ^^

Anyway in one particular episode (different episodes all the time) as best i can remember there was a little boy always dressed as a little girl. He might have lived with his grandparents. He thought he was a little girl until he saw a book with a picture of naked little boy in it. That's all i can remember. My memory is fading.

    (the audio was from an old youtube video clip that itself had nothing to do with the show, however it was published to youtube in 2012 so its safe to say that the show this audio is from is old)

    what I'm getting from this clip

    - it has a child character named Juli/julie(?) whose mother committed suicide and she tried to stop her - english drama tv show/movie(?) - the scene overall sounds very 'heavy', dunno what genres would fit for this. Reply
