Almost as much fun as seeing the televersions of historical figures in Toobworld is seeing their personal property show up in a storyline. The Hollywood memorabilia like W.C. Fields' pool cue in the 'Columbo' mystery "How To Dial A Murder"; Ben Franklin's spectacles in "Hope", an episode of the short-lived "Three"; and from the 'Bewitched' episode "Paul Revere Rides Again", there was a teapot made by you know who. And now we have a whole series dedicated to such personal yet historical mementos (but with a twist) in 'Warehouse 13'.

At least with the objects, there's less likelihood that Zonks will occur.....

On a recent episode of 'Burn Notice' ("Entry Point"), the sword of Alexander The Great was recreated by a knock-off artist so that it could be switched for the real thing, which was recently purchased by a millionaire named Bocklage.

Here's the "original" sword of Alexander the Great, who happens to be in the spotlight today for the "As Seen On TV" showcase..... BCnU!
