    I recall that Disney Interactive had an art game, and there was a couple of paint brushes, (or many) but the main bulk of it for me was that you had characters like Mickey, Minne, Donald, Daisy, and Pluto. You could also change the background. I'm positive that it exists, I even played it with my older brother sometimes (well, more like with him next to me) One of the backgrounds was a shopping mall. The characters were actually animated, on screen, Mickey was taking pictures for example. You could also print it out what you made. It was 2003-2006ish I think I played it? Well, probably closer to in 2006, as I could read the logo, but I don't actually know the real release date, I just know that it worked on my family's computer. I don't really even know what it's called, just that it exists. It might have been for Windows 98 or XP? I have a couple of other games I have vague memories of, but can't really piece together, like an educational game that taught a few things, and one where you could make virtual sock puppets with buttons and other items, probably googly eyes?

    So, back in like, 2005/06/07/Somewhere around there, I used to watch YTV. There was this show back then that was basically like a rip-off of Power Rangers (The characters were teenagers and went to highschool) and Ghostbusters (The characters had a bunch of monster fighting special effects tools instead of martial arts). The characters were like, four teenagers who fought monsters. And by monsters, I mostly just mean really big CGI animals. The most I can remember is that the main villain was a B-movie director who had a machine that could bring monsters from his movies to life. Also aliens were involved at one point, I'm pretty sure.

    I can remember bits and pieces of it, like specific monsters that showed up, but I can't remember any plots. The title was also something super generic. Please help, this has been haunting me for a decade. Reply

    I remember a sort of RTS game that was bought on Big Fish Games (or some other online seller of similar quality) many years ago which I could never beat, but now I can't remember what it was called. It was sort of like Starcraft, but single player and set in a world not too dissimilar to Moana. It had the following traits.

    1. The setting was tropical, at least at the start, and each level was a different island.

    2. The main character was a woman who had come into possession of an artifact which spoke to her, telling her to go... somewhere important and mystical. Again, can't remember.

    3. While regular mooks were typical fantasy enemies (I distinctly remember dragons the size of my little warrior units), the biggest, nastiest recurring enemies were the massive shadows. They were pitch black, only vaguely humanoid (more like blades of grass than man), and really put the game's limited animation on display, having only four or so sprites to indicate movement. The big ones liked to make little ones, which were the same sprite, but smaller.

    4. The game followed the typical style of RTS games with a bird's eye view, constructing barracks for different types of troops (like warriors, archers, cave men, etc.), and gathering resources to prepare for the impending waves of monsters.

    5. The final level has the artifact turn out to be evil, the shadows good guys trying to stop it, and takes place in a big, red cave of sorts. The artifact attunes with a giant statue which reveals itself to be a giant octopus alien that shoots lasers and, while goofy by my standards today, really unsettled me at the time due to its Giant Space Flea, "Outside-Context Villain" style (and also because the thing was about 80 feet tall and was using beam spam against my tiny, helpless troops).

    I'd really like to know if anyone else remembers a game like that. If it helps, I remember playing the game a little after I got my first DS. The time period is likely late-2008 to 2009. Meanwhile, I'm going to go search for it online. I'll let you know if I find it. Reply

    I remember seeing a bit of a movie on tv once but I can only remember one scene: a character (probably the protagonist) is looking for a place. He asks a passerby " do you know how to get to (place name)" and the person says "yes". instead of waiting for his response the other character just says "ok" and leaves. What movie is this? Reply

      Any idea of what the character looks like young or old? It would help me know if its a Leslie Nielsen movie or not - sounds like that kind of formula. Any idea how long ago when you saw this scene and/or if it was recent at the time?

      I don't remember what they looked like. It was in the 90s I saw it but of course the film could have been much older

    Anime
    I'm trying to remember the name of a show I remember watching as a kid waaaay back in the late 80's. I remember we had it on VHS and I'm not sure if it was a show or a movie. The basic premise from what I can remember is that it was a family in who traveled through a land full of dinosaurs inside a tank like vehicle. I can only remember bits and pieces of the show seeing as how I would only havce been around 4 or 5 at the time. I'm pretty sure it was animated but with live action sections similar to Thunderbirds. I'm pretty sure it seemed like a Japanese prodiuction of some kind too. Its also possible ive imagined this whole thing but any help would be great. :) Reply

    Literature
    Young adult or juvenile fiction (I don't remember exactly where it was in the library), about a girl who lives in a world where everything is grown from plants. Like, she waters the light bulbs on her ceilings and computers are bonded to you so they get bigger as you do. Even the buildings are giant plants. The library is this clear plant that they only got to grow once; it was hit by lightning. So this girl has vines in her hair which means that wierd things are going to happen to and around her. She has some minor wind power, like things blow around her some times, and then she learns to fly. She can only hover and her friend helps her practice and stuff, but then the friend gets sick. The only cure is the egg of this really dangerous animal, I think it's some kind of giant bird, and it's born angry. The animal lives in the jungle which is also super dangerous, but the girl goes to get the egg anyway. She ends up with a bunch of gorillas for a while, I think she almost gets eaten by a plant. There's this one mention of her peeing shortly after she heads out; it's not important, but i did notice it because mentions like that just don't exist usually. Anyway, she gets the egg and almost is killed by the animal, but she escapes when she learns how to fly in different directions, not just up. Her friend is saved and she is lauded as a hero because now the scientists have an egg to study. Meanwhile, a mentor-like woman, I think she showed up earlier too, but I'm really not sure, who has the same powers as the main character tells her about this other world (Earth, though I don't know if it's mentioned by name) and she starts thinking about going there and that's where it ends. The book and the main character have the same name, it starts with a "z" Reply

    All I know is there was a game on the App Store which no one seems to realise Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links (3 Monster and S/T zones only) bears an UNCANNY resemblance to...and it used to turn up no matter what I searched, and I never wanted it, but now I can search anything from "YG Opro" to "Duel Monsters", and it only appears Konami must've gotten it removed? I want it now because it had all the TRUE classics.

    To paint a picture, I only really vividly remember Yugi, Kaiba and Curse of Dragon. But it was like a chess board or a grid, they weren't cards, but the artworks. Lined up, square by square. And the best part is, they showed off all my Duelist Kingdom favourites! Only the TRUE classics.

    Any idea, anyone? Has it truly been lost to the sands of time? Or has the app store simply misplaced it? I can hope... Reply

He disagrees and they say he is becoming a slave, things happen and the white and black guy fight the other black guys with swords or something. I remember the black guys has an accent. Reply

    hi I was born in france and when I was little I remember a series very power rangers alike I just remember a scene where they are in a building and monsteres destroy it and some vortex appears and the girlfriend of the guy (teamleader) gets taken by the monsters and after a while she comesback as a villain without memories. that's how the show starts. I think it was channel m6 or tf1, its not the power rangers or the japanese version It aired in 90's so it was a long time ago. I would thank if someone recalls it, Reply

      Well the classic three are the three Super Sentai series published in France under the Bioman name: Choudenshi Bioman (probably not this one), Hikari Sentai Maskman, and Choujuu Sentai Liveman. This would be the first place I'd look.

      Vr Troopers occasionally used some kind of vortex to travel to another dimension for big battles but I don't think the leader was ever shown to have a girlfriend. Choujin Sentai Jetman, the sentai produced before the one that became MMPR, did have the leader's fiancée get kidnapped and brainwashed into one of the bad guys, but I don't know if a vortex was involved.

    In the mid-90's (so it is at least that old), I saw a French movie and I'm looking for its title now. It was set at the sunday following Daylight Saving Time starts, and the premise was how "missing an hour" affected everybody. IIRC, there was someone who missed an airplane because they hadn't realized the clock had skipped an hour forward, amongst other storylines (the movie followed multiple people / storylines). Reply

    I can vaguely remember a comic serial which must have been British involving a detective, who was drawn very simply, with a black trenchcoat, trilby and bug eyes - he may have been a frog. He was involved in an adventure in which he fought a Fu Manchu type villain. He burned through a rope using a watch glass. The villain had eggs with lions inside them as a weapon. "Your eggs have little lions on them - our eggs have little lions inside them!" The title may have included the words "private eye" Reply

    So I remeber this show where this kid went into a junk shop, and the store owner gave him a Lego brick sort of thing. Then the thing started glowing, and it turns out it's a key or something to a portal where basically everything is like Legos, but you can only go there if you have a brick in the real world. And the color of the brick is the color you are in the Lego world. It's not rally like Lego people when you go in, it's more like robots. I WANG TO START WATCHING THIS SHOW AGAIN IT BRINGS BACK MEMORIES!!!!! HELP ME PLZ!!!! The style of the show was like an anime sort of. I also remember there was a pink person in the Lego world and it turned out to be a new girl at the original kid's school. She got a brick. Plz halp meeee...... Reply

    I remember seeing what I assumed was a pilot for a show about kids who get super powers. It happened when they all decided to go to a junk yard, which a meteor hit. One of them woke up and was fused with a car.. I remember their clothing being bright and baggy. They used terrible 3D graphics for the meteor that hit and for the kid with the car body.. That's literally all I remember. Reply

    I vaguely remember watching some video when I was around 4 or 5, it must have been on a DVD meant to be viewed by young children. I have a very very very slight feeling it was from Sesame Street, i honestly dont really think so but its entirely a possibility. There was a song in it about the hands of a clock, and i remember it went something along the lines of: "The big hand is for me and the little one's for you" anyone know what i'm talking about? Reply

    I watched this show when i was a toddler. The tv show is somewhat educational. It always starts with a camera zooming into a feces puppet in some kind of a museum. I only remember one of the section/skit of the show is a full red skinned/painted guy in a red suit always fighting with a blue skinned/painted guy. The show is live action with mostly the use of puppets and the two humans fighting. That is all i can remember. Reply

    I remember this hack and slash action rpg for Apple devices. It was played in landscape mode and had a touch d-pad in the lower right, and an attack button in the lower left. The story was something about a princess and a crystal I think. The world map was based around a tower north of town that you have to climb. It had several circles on the screen for special skills that depended on your class, which you could choose from warrior, mage or rouge i think. The sprites resembled something from gba or early ds.

    1: A VHS we had in the early noughties. An old man and his dog go to the north pole. Possibly based on a true story. I think the dog was a brown greyhound-y thing that had a short name that reminded me of another animal (I'll add it if I remember). There were penguins despite being in the wrong hemisphere. They mentioned ice cream a lot. There wasn't much dialogue, so I'm not sure where it was from.

    2: A series shown on CBBC (or maybe CITV). I think it was Australian. At least, everyone had an Australian accent. It was set one a spaceship or something, and one of the characters was named Hobart. Not much to go on, I know. Reply

I remember in the very first few episodes a girl would wonder what was behind a closed door that she could not go into and she would have dreams about black feathers ?? Reply

    I don't know why but I remembered this game that was based off of a show where a teen and his teacher discover living "bugs" or whatever they were called that fought each other and "leveled up" soon after they develop devices that they can use to control the bugs, the teacher tells the teen to keep it a secret but 2 more people end up finding out anyway It's more of a show than a video game I originally found the show on youtube if anyone could help me remember the name it would be great :D Reply

      Can you describe what type of show it was? cgi, 2D animation, live action, etc

      That sounds like it might be one of the Digimon series.

      It was cgi and it wasn't Digimon (I'm actually a fan of digimon too though)

      Idk if this is true or not but I think the name of the series started with "nano" or something like that

      I was not cartoon or CGI, it was a brother and sister who were Australian in a farm type building hidden underground who could spy on bad guys around the work and communicate with other children around the world trying to stop evil, They also had a super computer that gave them the information. etc.. Not sure but think it was either BBC or ITV
