Other than Family Guy, has there been any other TV show that has ever been canceled than brought back, either by popular demand or other reasons?Eddie
This is very vague, but I once saw a cartoon - either a snippet of a 'loony toon' or a piece of another toon tv show - that involved two horses that fall in love. The male horse walks past the female and his heart pops out and starts beating wildly at the sight of her. I don't remember anything other than that. Anything would be of some help.
I know from "Making of" documentaries etc. that for computer-generated effects (e.g. a monster or a background) they use green-screen or blue-screen. It only ever seems to be these two colours. I don't know anything about computer effects, so why these two colours? (It seems to me it would be easier to animate onto a plain white screen?) Also, why do they sometimes use blue screens and sometimes green? Is there any difference between these two? Thanks.
I am looking for the name of a cartoon, possibly anime, that I saw as a kid in the 1980s. Some things I remember is its about two young unicorns, a good one and a mischievous one. Somehow they end up at the end of the Earth, which appears to be the ocean. One detail is that a black unicorn brings darkness and a white unicorn brings light. Also, the intro shows the mother unicorn and her offspring. Can you help me find the name of this cartoon?
Does anyone remember what the programme was called (UK only) that had a crazy artist painting all the time, and a pair of washing up gloves that made things in front of an audience at a theatre? It was something like 'Zap' or 'Zig Zag', but I can't remember exactly. I know it sounds like a really weird show, but I used to love it.
I saw this on tv about 15 years ago. I'm not sure if it was a film or a 2 part drama. There was a male artist who had ginger hair and he married this woman (ginger hair also) who he did a portrait of on their first meeting, which I think was in France or Italy. They had a daughter but split up a few years later. The father began to drink while the mum became quite successful. The daughter died while out on a boat, she fell off onto the anchor. Not a common death scene. Thanks.
I'm trying to remember the name of a TV show that i watched when i was a kid. It was on Nickelodeon and was one of those short shows that was played during the commercials. It was a team led by a really stupid guy who looked like He-Man, and then a sewage guy, then a girl who I thought was Wonder Woman. What was the name of this show?
I saw this movie when I was younger. I watched it on television, between 1997 to 2000. From what I remember, it's about: This girl (I'm guessing around 15 years old) is on this chat room and starts talking to this girl who says she's lost and can't find her way home. As the movie goes on we find out that the girl on the other end of the chat room is in a coma and has been for many years. The coma girl had somehow used her mind to talk to the girl on the internet, I guess. Anyways, by the end of the movie the girl that I think is 15 years old ended up helping the girl who was in the coma find her house (Neither girls knew she was in a coma) and she woke up from the coma in the hospital.It's not an animated movie. Does anybody know the name of the movie?
I'm currently looking for a movie that was made sometime in the 90s. The movie had two men and they were lost and were trying to find their way back home. On their way home, a guy in a car picks them up but later tells them to get out and strip their clothes off to their underwear. Anyway know what movie this is?
I can't remember the title of this children's film. It's a cartoon. Here's what I remember about it: It's about a little boy who must save a city (I think). Some random things that I remember are: he sees a bright light beneath a door in his house (it may have been a train coming through the house), at some point he is on his bed in the middle of an ocean or some large body of water, he arrives in a place that is very colorful and cheerful, with lots of hot airb alloons and toys. He gets a key at some point that he needs to use on a pair of huge doors. There are slimy / gooey monsters. Even if you aren't sure, I'd appreciate ANY possibility of what this movie might be. Thank you in advance.
Aside from Family Guy, has there been any TV show that has ever been cancelled than brought back? Either by popular demand or any other reason.Eddie
I am trying to identify the title of a film. The film ends with a climactic battle between archers and armored soldiers. The soldiers are in a field with shields held over their heads to protect against volleys of arrows. The archers then begin firing horizontally, taking out the ever-dwindling soldiers until all are dead. I remember it as being a B&W film, but I could be wrong. I do know it is quite old, 1960's or before.
What is the name of the movie where a British army officer asks a nurse in an army hospital to write a love letter to a fictitious soldier that, along with a satchel of other documents, this officer later deliberately drops while being pursued on camel back in the African desert. It is intended to make the Germans believe the WW II invasion of Europe will occur somewhere other than Normandy.
I'm trying to identify an old movie. I believe it was made for American network TV in the early or mid 1980s. It was about a group of children on a spaceship headed away from earth toward a new planet, called 'Demeter'. Along the way, something happens which causes them to pick up an adult straggler and they become imprisoned by a man who turns out to be the brother of a female crew member. There is a cage fight involving a belt with an electromagnetic forcefield hidden inside, after which everyone escapes and the movie ends with one of the kids finding a way to make the telescope images of Demeter clearer, and the images are shown to resemble earth.
