    For some reason, I still cannot see one of the images.

    But, no, in all seriousness, this is exactly what happened to me as well.

    Yeah, I still have it too! Though, now I do regret not taking better care of it. The pages aren't attached to the spine of the book anymore and a lot of them are missing including the page that showed a list of Jim and Frank's characters. But, i'm still glad I have as much as I have.

    Mhm. I think my local library had it so I checked it out at least 10 times, but then eventually I got my own copy, lol. It's a great book for not just kids, but for people who want to get into puppetry period.

    Anyone ever remember these series of videos called "Fun in a Box"? I checked these out at the local library a couple times as a kid and loved them (they were up there with the Children's Circle and Thomas videos), but it seems like no one else remembers them as the only thing I could find was this drawn-on-film animated short called "Metal Dogs from India" by Chel White. It's about as trippy as you'd expect.



    I was able to find the actual videos on Amazon, and it seems like the series didn't go beyond these two. Sad.

    If any of you had ever been to a dentist's office a generation or two ago, you might have remembered seeing these:

    I just rediscovered my old collection of Furbies in the attic a couple days ago. Man, those things bring back memories. Like a lot of kids growing up in the late '90s and early '00s I adored Furbies back then, >3.

    If I can remember correctly, this one was my favorite Furby because it's color reminded me a little bit of my cat Spot's fur lol.

    My dad listens to a lot of the SiriusXM Outlaw Country radio station that plays "edgier" country music you wouldn't normally hear in the mainstream, hearing country singers drop the F-bomb and say filthy things about sex that Brad Paisley would never sing about in a billion years is commonplace on that channel. But one thing I heard recently surprised me a bit. They were playing a song by Shel Silverstein of all people! I thought at first that it was just a joke, because "How could a kid's book writer possibly make anything edgy enough to be played on Outlaw Country?" but boy was I wrong. It was an entire Shel Silverstein song about getting high on drugs. I kid you not!? I'm still not one hundred percent sure if that ruined or enhanced my childhood but hey, it was definitely an interesting discovery.

    I remember Bob Saget from watching old reruns of classic America's Funniest Home Videos episodes growing up. I had no idea he did vulgar stuff like that.

    The very first movie I ever saw in the theater was Home On The Range.

    I think the first movie I went to was Dr. Dolittle at a drive-in, and I played with Sesame Street Colorforms the whole time; there's some nostalgia for ya!

    I'm beyond excited about that upcoming live-action Lilo and Stitch movie. L&S was my favorite childhood movie and is still among my favorite Disney films of all time. I'm glad that after so long, another film featuring LILO alongside Stitch is being made. Not Yuna, not Ai, but good old Lilo. Not that I have a problem with those Stitch spinoffs featuring other girls in place of Lilo as Stitch's best friend. I just prefer Lilo over all the later spinoff characters myself. The spinoffs are good as their own unique series but neither of them compare to the original Stitch movies and TV show.

    That poster looks like late '90s; was not expecting 2006 at all.
