Classic Nickelodeon Sighting

Crown for Christmas – 2015
Danica McKeller & Rupert Penny-Jones
A fired New York City maid reluctantly becomes the governess to a poorly behaved little girl who turns out to be European royalty. Before long the two form a strong bond, and the governess also grows close to the young princess’ engaged father. (Drama, 120 Minutes)

In less than ten minutes in as the New York City maid and her sister are leaving for work she gets into a snowball fight with a young man who is one of their neighbors. She throws a snow ball at him, runs off and yells out, “GOT YOU LAST!”

·        Later as she is leaving her home in New York that same young man picks up a snowball and throws it at the car and yells, “GOT YOU LAST!”

·        Why is that important? Because Plus & Minus, who were puppets on Pinwheel, use to play a game of tag and when they would tag each other they would say, “got you last!”

Taking A Small Break

Hey guys, I don't really want to get into a long drawn out post but I'm going to take a small break from posting. Yesterday (Monday 11-16-15) I found out my cat Cece had cancer and they were not going to be able to save her.  Then a little while ago I got a call from the vet, she said she has seen a shift in Cece's attitude and asked if I could come and pick her up tomorrow. Physically I am not able to drive up there tomorrow, I need to rest b/c it's 45 minutes away, so I will pick her up on Friday.

Then on Saturday I will be working with the Mission to help provide a community Thanksgiving meal for everyone who would like to attend so I will be very busy. But I was just thinking, the Halloween videos seemed to work out pretty well so maybe i can find some old Thanksgiving day parade videos to post for you. And if I can find any clips of Turkey Television I will post those as well but it won't be till next week. 

Thank you for understanding,
Peggy Sue

Special Delivery – Tuck Everlasting

Special Delivery – Tuck Everlasting

Most people are familiar with the 2002 Disney remake of this film but chances are that most of the people who watched it have never seen the original film from 1981. Both films are based on Natalie Babbitt's 1975 children's book of the same title.

The story revolves around Winnie Foster, a girl from a well-bred, strait-laced, upper-class family who feels suffocated and longs to make her own choices in life. One day while she is taking a walk in the woods her father owns she meets Jessie Tuck, a young man with a secret. Soon they are met by Jessie’s mother and brother; as they begin to talk they hear Winnie’s mother calling for her. Afraid outsiders will discover their secret they kidnap Winnie to protect their secret but not before they run into the man in the yellow suit.

Who is he and what is his connection with the Tuck family? Find out in the original 1981 version of “Tuck Everlasting.”
