    So this has been driving me crazy, I remember watching this on a VHS tape as a kid. It was some kind of animated musical, done in an animation style like the 1960s or 1970s. The main character was a kid of some sort, and was on an adventure or quest or something? There may have been a dog or dog-like companion. I remember one sung line that went "That's the way it's always been, that's the way it's gonna stay." "Stay" here is stretched out too. Reply

      The Phantom Tollbooth, maybe?

      I don't think that's it, I think it had more of a psychedelic animation style.

      The Point?

      That's it! Thank you so much!

    What show had an episode where an ancient Mayan virus was released into the modern world and turns everyone into zombie like creatures? Oh and the same virus made the Mayans disappear. Its not the Walking Dead or Supernatural, I checked. Reply

    In My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, was there an episode with a whole group of zebras that were doing this religion or something and Zecora or some other zebra was the sort of "leader" and was holding a pink flower in its mouth? Reply

      This episode does not exist. Zecora is the only Zebra that has appeared in the show. Other than her, the only one we met was Braze in Rainbow Dash's book.

      You probably were thinking of something that had came from a fanfiction, most likely animated afterwards.

      Or alternatively, in S 5 E 25-26, which includes a universe caused by time travel where the ponies are all tribe-members.

    I enjoy old cartoons that are chock full of caricatures of the movie stars of yesteryear. Of course I know about "The Autograph Hound" and "Hollywood Steps Out", and today I discovered "Mickey's Gala Premiere", but are there more like these? Reply

      There is Hollywood Picnic

      Thanks. That one doesn't appear in the "see also" section of the Wikipedia article for "Hollywood Steps Out."

      I can't recall a cartoon that has a bunch of them, but I do recall the Bugs Bunny short 8 Ball Bunny to have a brief cameo of Humphrey Bogart.

      Maybe look back on the filmography of Friz Freleng, he did a lot of those. The CooCooNut Grove is another.

    Hi, So i remember this animated dvd i always used to watch about a mechanic (something is telling me he was called sam but i may be wrong) who worked in his car garage with several other people and his motto was always "where there's a wheel there's a way". There was a guy who would sing at the end of episodes and i remember in one episode there was a big traffic jam and in another someone dropped their keys down a drain. Does anyone remember what it was called?? Reply

    I remember (vaguely) a show with an elephant and some zookeeper guy that would do random stuff the entire episode. The guy would usually walk over to a wall mounted dispenser that would drop some random food( or something else I can't remember) into the elephants bowl. I used to watch it in the early 2000's Reply

    I recall seeing this advert in the early 2000s. A man was in an office building taking a phone call. He looked out through the window at the car park (parking lot) and there was a huge baby/giant realistic doll sitting in the centre of it. I can't remember what it was advertising or any of the words said and it's been bugging me for a while now. Reply

      I think that there was an episode of Freaky revolving around something to do with a fridge, but I'm not 100% sure that it would absolutely match your description.

      Probably a long shot since it's not a TV show but are you thinking of the fridge scene from Ghostbusters?

      No, I don't think so. It's possible but unlikely as I don't think Dana exactly said "I forgot to close the fridge door".

      Yeah. I was implying that over time your memory of that may have been confused with a scene from something else.

      But I distinctly remember those seven words being said, LOL.

      Hm. Sorry, I'm no help then.

    When I was a a child. My brother and I rented a VHS tape with a animated series on that I am looking for the name of. The series follow a three human characters. The male hero, the heroine and older male. I cannot recall their names. The series is set in the future and the human characters are teamed up with the three robots. The robots are not Mechas, as the are not piloted by the humans. The heros robot has a whip/ grappeling line, the female robot can connects with computers with wire plug ins and the last robot is big and strong. I watched the series along time ago and I have been looking for the series name. I recall the episodes I watched ended on a cliffhanger and I wanted to watch the show again Can anyone help me? I am looking for the series title Reply

      Can you describe the robots in more detail? Are they the same apparent gender as their respective owners/human-friends? Do they have particular colour schemes? Are they humanlike, human-with-armor, only vaguely humanoid, completely nonhuman shapes?

      All three robots had gender (if a robot can have a gender). Two "male" robots and one "female", like their human counterparts. I recall that the main robot kind of looked like Mazinger Z. But I may be wrong. I think it was red, white and blue. The "female" robot was pink and may have looked a little like Arcee from Transformers Gen 1. The last robot had a long nose and claws for hands. It had a green and white color scheme. But all the robots was humanoid in form.

    It aired on Teletoon in the late 90s, maybe running into 2000. There were these 5 different colored aliens that lived in a house. In one episode, I think they were all wearing futuristic suits and one of the characters pressed a button on their belt that made them teleport a short distance, I think closer to the fridge. Reply

      Five different-colored aliens could be several shows, including Space Goofs, but the rest doesn't add up.

      Yep, I think that was it. Thanks!

    I had this tape as a kid that I watched frequently. I remember 2 things about it, First, there was a part involving a horseshoe, maybe changing the shoe. Second, there was a giant who kept saying 'I hate muuuuuuusiiiic' and at the end of the segment when the 2 other people were leaving and taking the music with them, he started chasing after them saying 'wait, maybe I like music sometimes' Reply

    Okay so I remember as a kid watching this weird show. I don't remember much at all but what I do remember is there was a scientist and he lived in either like a windmill type thing or a laboratory and there were these 2 kids a boy and a girl and he scientist was there friend and he one day made a potion to grow him a moustache. He tested it and he sprouted hair all over his body and the kids saved the day somehow that's the only thing I can remember. I don't even know if I dreamed it or it was an actual show. This was during blockbuster times I think it was rented and I cant think of the name I have tried every way to find out what it was. Reply

      What sort of time period did you see the show? Was it live action or animated?

      Round the Twist? Lighthouse, not a windmill ...

      I think this was from Arthur. In the episode titled, "The Contest," the characters try to come up with ideas for a tv episode. Brain gets an idea similar to what you described: he makes a potion that, when applied to an object, makes fur grow on it. Arthur somehow dumps a bunch on him, and he grows hair all over himself. He then rides away on a bike. The art style during this segment was completely different than the usual.

      This reminds me of the Video Brinquedo mockbuster Little and Big Monsters, but I'm most certainly wrong.

      Sounds a bit like Rupert, in that there was a professor who lived in a castle tower and the two main characters often went there to help him with his gadgets.

      Was it fictional or a documentary? There have been several cases of long-term child abductions resulting in pregnancy where the spouse was aware of the abuse.

    I remember this TV show. It was live action but there was a disembodied CGI head that was green and had a tongue that looked like a spring, which had an eye on. It spat eyes. I remember that I was about 6, but im 12 now. It was creepy but wasnt intentional. Also, I think the head spun around. He was a reoccurring villain too. That's all I remember. Reply

      That's definitely the Problem Blob from Numberjacks. For a Cbeebies show, the villains were scary as hell. I had a friend who was scared of that blob and one time I had a nightmare inspired by that man in the white suit and hat.

    I've tried seeking the information on my own and nothing I search with comes close.

    I think there were only two or three seasons I saw it around 2007

    The show is set in Canada I believe, there are Indians who make up a lot of the cast [modern day] and it begins with an object like a satellite falling on the frozen lake. . It has real strange breaks between scenes with odd colors. One of the main characters is a sheriff or mountie.. Into the series a government man or air force man comes looking for the fallen object. There comes to be a murder and they leave the body to freeze and move it around. It felt a little like Northern Exposure and it wasn't 60 degrees North.

    As the title implies i'm looking for a book of short stories that I read at some point in the 90's. I remember one story that was about a kid that was scared to dive form the high board. The instructor tells him to come after closing time to practice diving from the high board. As he arrives he sees a girl dive into the empty ( as in drained of water pool) while the instructor cries. I think it ended with the boy being forced to climb up to the board by the instructor but I might be wrong. There is a chance this book was Dutch Reply

    Probably 1970s - 80s TV series Set in Medieval times? A girl who has sword skills, trying to save a prince who was turned into stone. A scene showed many women from the city tried the kiss-the-prince strategy to break the spell but none succeeded. A woman fainted from excitement after kissing the prince? The girl obtained some magic in a container or something managed to break the spell. There was also soldier armours that can move by themselves? somehow if they are defeated they turn into stone and shattered? Reply

      This seems strange, as there were very few fantasy TV shows in the 70s or 80s.

      At the risk of being obvious, have you checked the pages for the tropes you mention, such as Taken for Granite and True Love's Kiss, to see if anything looks familiar?

    I remember seeing this really weird short years ago, on one of the nickelodeon channels, either TeenNick or Nick Toons. It wasn't even from a particular show, it was just filler. It was either cgi or claymation and it starred these three kids in an alleyway who looked like rappers, or maybe gang members. I don't remember what they were doing, but in the middle of the short, some other kids walk by, way younger than the alley kids. The alley kids jump behind a box and start doing a puppet show (I know, weird). And then the young kids run off and the alley kids resume their activities. If I remember right, here were NO actual words spoken in the short, just sound effects and grunts. Anyone know it? Reply

      That sounds like one of the sketches from Planet Sketch [1]

      Thank you, but no. The CGI/claymation was better quality than that, and the characters didn't look like that.

    Since my old post has over 50 replies, I decided to make them two different posts hoping that it will be easier.

    An American sitcom (sometime between the 1960s and 1990s) with one episode involving two friends (both female) at a party with a snobby woman (I assume she's wearing blue) and then they 'accidentally' push the snobby woman into the fountain (which was in a courtyard in the middle of a house, so it was a patio type area), it was at nighttime but really bright as if lit by moonlight as well as the lights of the house. Does anyone know what the show is? And if so, what episode was I referring to?

    This has been bugging me for the majority of my life and I have yet to find more information about it. PLEASE HELP ME! Reply





      Could it be a scene from Gossip Girls? Someone gets pushed into a fountain in an episode.

      That wasn't it because it was in the 2000s. However if it is, which episode would you be referring to?

      It's season 4 episode 1. I double checked it and it's just two girls arguing not three and the push is on purpose. It's at 22:40 if you're curious. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3j6vxx

      I do want to add that the woman pushed in the fountain was dressed in blue, and was questioned by another guy the next morning.


      It wouldn't fit, but this also happened in an episode of Leave it to Beaver.

      Just out of curiosity, do you know what episode it was in?

      "The All Night Party". I didn't actually see the scene in question, though.





      Bump. Is there anyone who can help me with this?


      Is it Cybill? This forum post mentions a similar incident. http://www.sitcomsonline.com/boards/archive/index.php/t-23413.html The episode was "Wedding Bell Blues", according to Wikipedia. There would definitely have been 3 women present, though I assume Morgan Fairchild would be wearing a white dress.

      Bump. Just wanted to make sure the OP didn't give up.

      That's not it unfortunately. I know for a fact that the woman who fell in the water fountain was wearing blue (suit or dress), including a blue hat that is similar to maybe a shower cap or a bonnet.

    This is a television show and I believe I watched the first episode. The mother is ex-armed forces, and the father is a professor. They have fraternal twin daughters and a son who plans to join the peace corps. In the opening episode one of the daughters is dragged into the sky and the family get into their RV to find her. They join a caravan and discover that some people are being possessed by spirits, while others are infected with some disease that makes them go mad. Reply

    I'm not entirely sure if this is a film or a TV show, but I remember channel surfing one evening and found this scene: A man is outside, perhaps in someone's rather large backyard. He is seated on a bench in front of a piano. There are lots of people watching him. The scene takes place at night, and there are tiki torches (?) lit around the backyard/courtyard. Everything is going well, until suddenly, the man's right hand freezes, and a Scare Chord is emitted (I think). The camera is now close up on the stiff right hand, where the viewer can see a ring on the man's finger. The ring has a dark, possibly black, gemstone in the center of it. It could be possible that the ring is causing his hand to freeze. It looked like the scene was slowly fading to another scene or a flashback or something, but about that time is when I changed the channel. The movie looked pretty old, probably from the 60's or 70's, and was in full color. What is this movie/show? Reply

      The Mephisto Waltz, maybe?

      Hmmm...it looks like it could be, but I couldn't find a ring on the guy's finger in the trailer. Do you know if that scene occurs in the movie?

      It’s been a long time since I watched it. I barely remember most of it (I kind of got bored with it). The main thing I remember is a masquerade party scene in which someone’s walking a dog with a human-faced mask on it. But the “demonically possessed pianist” trope has been done a bunch of times. The Mephisto Waltz was probably the most high-profile from that era.



      Gettin' bumpy over here.

      Bump. If anyone can actually confirm that it is indeed The Mephisto Waltz, then I may close this once and for all.

      Two thoughts, both very tentative as I haven't seen either one of the films in its entirety.

      It looks like it might not be The Mephisto Waltz. I scanned through the film, and it doesn't look like a scene like that occurs. During the masquerade party scene Bananaquit mentions, there are basically no shots of the main character's hands on the piano, and no freezing hand as in the OP. There's an outdoor party scene later, but without any piano at all. I didn't notice a ring at any point.

      I have another suggestion that's an even greater stretch: the 1960 version of The Hands of Orlac has a concert scene in which the performer stops playing after he hallucinates that he is wearing gloves. What's interesting is that there's a different scene with a black ring (the character tries his old ring on after a hand transplant, and is upset that it no longer fits). Both of these are rather off from the situation in the OP — but whatever the real answer is, I wonder if it might have been influenced by Orlac. The 1960 film is the third of three versions, but all of them are in black-and-white.

      Thanks for the suggestion, Maso Tey! I don't think it's The Hands of Orlac, though. This was definitely in color, and the concert was outdoors.






      Savages? Or the 1974 version of The Great Gatsby?

      I don't think it's Gatsby, and there's not enough info on the internet to determine if the scene occurs in Savages. You didn't happen to see these films yourself, did you?

      I did, but it’s been a while (since high school in the case of Gatsby).


      How long ago did you see it.

      Man, I dunno, maybe 6-8 years ago? It was a long time ago, but the film looked like something from the 60's or 70's.



      I said bump, bump, the bumpy, the bumpy to the bump, bump, bumpity don't stop the bumpin' with the bang bang bumpy and up bumps the query to the bumping of the bumpity bump!

      Bump Never Dies.

      The Man with the Golden Bump.



      did you ever find it out?

      Nope. I've pretty much abandoned this query. If anyone happens to still be looking, please continue. I just won't be regularly bumping this.

    At least I'm pretty sure it's from an animated movie. I remember a scene from some 2D animated movie - I'm guessing not made by Disney, or I probably would have run into it again - made sometime in the early/mid 2000s. There was a song, probably sung by a villain, and at the very end, the singer walked down a line of people on either side of him, and as he passed them he punched/kicked them all so they fell down. It's been haunting me for years, so maybe someone here knows what it's from? Reply

      Do you remember what the villain looked like? Checking the Villain Song page might help.

      Are you certain it was 2d animated? It could have been this scene from Robots.
