    Sometimes when I was bored on the school bus as an elementary schooler, I would look out the window and imagine Sonic the Hedgehog on the road running next to the bus.

    I think we're all guilty of day dreaming on the bus. :p

    When I was in my tween and early teen years, I used to take acting classes down at a local theater. Well, for some weird reason there was always this faceless mannequin wearing a tuxedo up at the top of the theater that appeared as though it was staring down on us in a creepy way. So my friends and I made a recurring joke out of that where we would say,
    "Remember to study your scripts harder or the Slender-Man is gonna get ya!". Because that mannequin totally looked like freaking Slender-Man lol.

    When I was a kid, I used to think the backing vocals in "I'm a Little Airplane" on the "neow neow, neow-neow-neow-neow-neow" were singing "downtown."

    I think I mentioned this before, but I always thought (and still think) Jimmy from Ed, Edd 'N Eddy looked like a Samurai Jack character without his outline.

    Speaking of Jimmy, here's another unpopular opinion: I don't believe he's gay.

    I know much of the EEE fandom has made Jimmy being gay fanon: he's effeminate, he has girly interests such as playing with dolls, playing dress-up, having tea parties, decorating, and such . . . but I don't believe he's actually gay, and here's why: he's been shown to have romantic feelings for Sarah. Not only does he call Sarah his girlfriend (to be fair, he does do it in a manner that women refer to each other as their girlfriends), but he's been shown to pamper and tend to her like a boyfriend would a girlfriend, not to mention he flew into a depressive funk and even jealous rage when she developed a crush on Double D and started stalking him. On a lesser note, there's been times where we also see that he does want to be a tough, macho man when he grows up.

    As far as Jimmy's girly interests and pastimes are concerned, I honestly believe it's just a phase he's going through, because I speak from experience. As I've mentioned other times, I went through such a phase when I was like three to five years old: it's not because I felt like I was supposed to be a girl, or that I felt like I was gay, or that I wanted to be a girl, or anything like that - it was just simply because girl toys and such looked fun.

    Maybe he also just has a casual feminin side to him.

    I mean, as a grown man, I'm not ashamed to admit I have some plushies of female characters and I watch chick flicks.

    Same. 13 GOING ON 30 is a guilty pleasure of mine, lol.

    And, too, even though it wasn't something I ever did intentionally, I eventually came to realize that I've created more female characters than I have male characters. Take Steve's little cast of characters, for example: he's the only male one; Bethany, and each of the Squirrely Squirrels are all female. Similarly, one concept I've developed that still hasn't gotten off the ground, has a cast of four: the main protagonist is female, her sidekick is female, and the main antagonist is female, but the "fourth ranger"/comic relief character is male.

    Again, it wasn't something I did intentionally or consciously, and I don't even know why I ended up creating such a larger ratio of female characters than male, but at the same time, I also think in a way, I'm doing a service. What's a common complaint among the world of entertainment? A serious lack of positive, likable female characters for girls to relate to. Some of mine could quite possibly fit that bill.

    So I used to have a circus bowl with clowns, balls, horns, etc, and I thought the clowns and circus objects in these skits were the same ones.

    So in the late 80s and early 90s, Disney often did compilation specials for various different holidays or in honor of certain characters and such. I remember there was a Halloween special they did that featured excerpts from THE OLD MILL, as well as the scene from THE ARISTOCATS where Edgar the butler is being attacked and chased by a pair of farm dogs. Now, as a little kid, I didn't quite grasp the concept of compilations and such, and with the scene from THE ARISTOCATS having a windmill, I wondered how the windmill could suddenly be back in working order after it was previous destroyed by lightning (in THE OLD MILL).

    I remember as a kid I wanted to let Edgar out of that trunk in the Aristocats (claustrophobia. Lol).

    Yeah, that kind of bothered me too.

    Oh, but that also reminds me of another silly thing I thought as a kid: I thought "Timbuktu" was "Timbuk 2," so naturally, I thought that meant there also had to be a "Timbuk 1" and a "Timbuk 3."

    Also, as a kid, Edgar made me want a motorcycle with a sidecar when I grew up . . . even to this day, I sometimes think it would be much easier to handle one of those things than a motor vehicle.

    At the same time, however, I've never seen a motorcycle with a sidecar in real life. Never. What I do keep seeing, though, are those tricycle motorcycles that make people who ride them look like major dweebs.

    Obviously you've never heard of sidehack bikes. :coy:

    When I was young, and was still just learning about Pokemon, I thought the Normal type was called the "Light" type (you know, to contrast with the Dark type).

    Speaking of Pokémon, oddly enough I remember a Pokémon that never existed! It looked almost like an Owlbear from Dungeons and Dragons but in Pokémon form. Hmmm, Mandela Effect anyone!? No, I probably am just remembering something else and my mind is mistaking it for a Pokémon.

    Here is a silly Pokemon thought I've had.

    I always wanted to know what Meowth would look like if he cooperated with Jessie and James and dressed up as a Dratini.
