Reaper. Just rewatched that a couple months ago and it is still great. Wish it had gotten a chance to resolve the cliffhanger at the end of S2.
That’d be the one! Thank you!
This is also how I find out the book has two sequels!
It looks interesting. I might check it out myself.
I seem to remember the first book was good, but I’d probably have to reread it myself.
One thing i wish i could find would be a copy of the original version of The Point. I saw this animated movie as a wee boy back when it first aired as an ABC Movie of The Week in 1971. In that broadcast, and apparently, only in that broadcast, Dustin Hoffman voiced the role of the father who is telling the story in the movie to his son. I guess he did not agree to allow his voice to be used in any subsequent versions, so in the VHS/DVD releases of the movie his voice has been replaced by that of Ringo Starr(!?!). It’s too bizarre sounding compared to the Hoffman version I remember as a kid.
I remember seeing the original airing of that too. I would have been 5.
Wow! Thank you! Just when I gave up looking.
OK, here’s one: A comic book version of The Brave Tailor from either the late 1950s or early 1960s. In the story, he faces giants, a unicorn, a giant boar and (I think) a lion. I have no idea who the publisher was or if there’s a version that can still be found. It was one of many old comics my Dad had that I saw as a kid in the '80s. Any ideas?
I had a white whale for decades until about 5 minutes ago and I have to say it feels pretty strange to have found it. It was one line from a '70s Scooby Doo comic book that 8-year-old me thought was so absurd that it made me laugh and stuck in my head—so much so that I still use part of it when I have to create a secure password. I had nothing else to go on and gave up hope of ever finding it years ago.
But now Google Lens indexes text inside images and makes it searchable. Typed it in, hit return, and it was the first result. Amazing.
That’s cool, glad you found your whale, Michael
I found one of mine earlier this year too. There was this female lead crime show, lasted only a season. The show’s producers ended it on a cliffhanger to try and force a second, but that didn’t happen.
Every time I’d do a search I’d get Police Woman or Cold Case… not what I wanted. But I watched a movie not long ago and the shows actress was in it, so now I had her name, and it was easy to find the title.
Under Suspicion from 1994-95.
Ironically, I was reading up on the series to see if there was a DVD release, and the creator of the show said that she hired the actress, Karen Sillas, after seeing the movie I’d just watched.
Unfortunately, while I found the title, I can’t find the episodes anywhere, the only thing I came across was this promo
Will it ruin your password if you tell us the line? Because I really want to know now.
No, I just use bits of it as a starting place so I don’t think anyone could get there from here.
ETA: Since this isn’t the Out of Context Comics thread, context.
Wise words indeed from Mr. Norville “Shaggy” Rogers.
Is Shaggy a Delta Knight?
I was staring at the “sacred trident” line thinking, “how is that funny?”
And then I read the other bubble.
(Do elephants even eat rutabegas? runs to Google)
They like veggies, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they would eat a rutabaga, but I don’t know that they eat root vegetables in the wild.
