I learned that Quidditch got it's name from the three balls. Quaffle, bludger, snitch.
I learned that at least two shows on the CW accompanied sex scenes with non-romantic Imagine Dragons songs. One, I saw myself, another, I only read about.
"In the Melissa & Joey Halloween episode 2014, Aunt Zelda shows up and tells Melissa that she is a witch named Sabrina who had her memory wiped. At the end of the episode Mel decides to have her memory wiped again and continue her life as an oblivious mortal."
That's correct....."Melissa and Joey" was a stealth sequel to the "Sabrina" sitcom. What a cruel fate for Sabrina.
Did someone else show up in the same episode and tell Joey his real last name is Russo?
Was the first one Arrow? And there have to be more than two. Every show on the air was using "Radioactive" in an episode.
I only read about the Arrow scene. The instance I actually saw came from Riverdale,
which played "Believer" as Archie and Jughead made out with Veronica and Betty, respectively.
The Ren & Stimpy episode "Reverend Jack" is a fictionalized dramatization of the events surrounding Nickelodeon's firing of creator John Kricfalusi from the show. It's basically the animation team raising a huge middle finger to their former show runner - depicting his mannerisms around the studio, his constant running behind schedule, and how he ranted against the show and the people still working on it after he was booted out.
As a matter of fact, the Games Animation vanity card that appeared at the end of the show from season three onwards (a picture of Stimpy dressed as a milkman) came about because of John K.'s ranting after he was fired, describing the network and the staff he was leaving behind as "milkmen" trying to squeeze as much as possible out of his creation.
I've never seen this episode. Now I want to.
This is a clip from "Reverend Jack" that got cut for some reason, which is based on something John K did at a party everybody got super-drunk at.
DMOZ was re-launched as Curlie earlier today: http://curlie.org/
Eric Blair (aka George Orwell) was a virulent anti-Semite.
Mario and Luigi are canonically 26-years-old.
Dalmatia, where the dalmatian comes from, is in Croatia.
Yesterday I learned that Will Ferrell suffered from constant headaches and loss of sleep because of all the sugary foods he had to eat while filming Elf.
I learned that at the Amazon Marketplace, the cheapest My Neighbor Totoro Fox Family Feature DVD costs almost $70. (It doesn't show the movie in widescreen or Japanese, but it does have a different English dub than that used on the Disney and GKIDS DVDs.)
I knew Corinne was in some of the Disney Channel Original Movies, but I didn't know she was in the very first one.
I learned from another Disneycember viewer that Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge shares a director with Pet Sematary.
Today I learned Bea Arthur's character from the Star Wars Holiday Special is canon in the new continuity. Also, she's married to a woman named Sorschi.
I learned that in He's a Bully, Charlie Brown, Bill Melendez's last Peanuts cartoon, Taylor Lautner voiced the eponymous bully.
The famous tagline "Don't squeeze the Charmin" comes from how people would squeeze bread loaves in the old days to see if it was fresh (aka soft), since the packaging bread was packaged in wasn't airtight because the bread would be wrapped in wax paper in cellophane. Since the bread would loose its' shape due to being squeezed too much, the sales staff would often tell people, "Don't squeeze the bread, please!"
I recently learned that the same band who played this song:
also played this song:
"The Fox and the Hound (1981) was a troubled production. The original ending for the animated feature was to have the hard drinking hunter nailing Tod the fox’s lifeless pelt to the wall and then euthanizing Copper the dog with his shotgun."
Also, the producer wanted to put Charo in the film.
I learned that since Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs doesn't credit its voice actors, Adriana Casselotti and Harry Stockwell (the prince) had to sneak into the premiere.
