Are the pictures in Hooper's Store confirmed?
4190 - Wild Nature Survivor Guy Gem
In the opening shot, Leela's tomato basket has "Joan Ganz Cooney and Lloyd Morrisett" on the top of its logo. Don't have a hi-def tv so i couldn't make out the rest of the logo except for "Eco-Friendly" and i think the next words may have been packing basket. It also looked like Leela's watering can may have had it as well since there was also a similar label on it with the top letter printed and formatted the same as Joan/Lloyd's name on the basket - but again couldn't make it out with my old-school set.
In today's episode, Mr. Johnson's menu had a small image from the Ladybugs Picnic cartoon on front.
I don't know how you guys are catching this stuff.
Yeah, these small details are practically minuscule. (except maybe Barkley in the season premier)
Keep up the good work.
This last one wasn't too hard since it was so oddly placed on the menu that it was kind of intrusive - it definately looked like something placed over the regular menu (like it was announcing a current special but you couldn't make out the words, just the picture) and cut into the regular Hooper's menu logo on the front.
My local station actually went back to showing SST in widescreen today instead of formatting/cropping it. Hopefully this wasn't just a one-day fluke. Now maybe i can see stuff that might get cut off from the edges of the screen.
Also i think some will be easier than others - when Joey first talked about them he said that there would be things like seeing Biff and Sully in the background and that sounds like it would be pretty easy to catch (i was thinking Mr. Johnson being in the street scene was actually the gem until i saw his menu)
Why would Mr. Johnson being in the street scene be the gem?
Classic character you wouldn't normally expect to see there (in a similar vein to using Biff and Sully as referenced in above post).
By the way outside of the street scene, anyone notice how that tree puppet in Abby/Rosita/WTFZoe's Guess the Season song looked like a throwback to the "This is Your Life" talking tree?
A newspaper clipping with Jim Henson's photo hangs in the laundromat window today.
Is there any way we can get images of these findings posted in the forum for all to see?
That is a great idea. I would love to see some thee that I have missed.
Definitely. If someone can do this, it would be most appreciated. Perhaps someone's putting this stuff up on the Muppet Wiki?
In the opening scene where Chris was reading the newspaper to Telly, there was a small headline above the Porridge Shortage about Kevin Clash... can't remember what it said, though.
I wouldn't call a Mr. Johnson appearance a "hidden gem". He's made quite a few appearances in the last few years, after being absent for most of seasons 33-35 (I think his only appearance in thos eyears was in repeats of Elmo's World: Food). Though it is unusual to see him on the street, and just as unusual to see him used so heavily without Grover.
Looks like a rebuilt Wanda Cousteau makes a cameo on the upcoming "Find the Amphibian" episode...
Thanks for the pic
Yeah for Wanda Cousteau! That's cool- and having Mr. Johnson on the Street. That's neat too. I hope a lot of other classic characters continue to make some cameos as background characters at least, if not an actual important role in the plot.
Everyone gawking about Mr. Johnson being seen on the street like it's a big treat, obviously haven't seen The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland.
Off Topic, but...
Mr. Johnson may not really be all that frequent in recent seasons, but he does manage to pop up once in a while... i.e. Season 37 (?) in the Global Grover Russian Restaurant sketch. And of course, he's in that new iPhone app. Wanda, however... that's a character that is a hidden gem. Unless they plan to randomly bring her back (in past years, all sorts of old characters made season long appearances, and then vanished again), they just wanted to give her a nod. Now, the segment with her is featured on the Y Quest DVD... if anyone has that and can elaborate on what she does, it would be pretty helpful.
Separate names with a comma.
