A nine-year losing streak in the annual holiday game at Ford Field ended Thursday with a 40-10 rout of the sinking Green Bay Packers, who couldn't turn four Lions turnovers into a badly needed road win.

That's how it played out in the Trueniverse. But for Toobworld...?
In the "Thanksgiving" episode of 'Last Man Standing', the timeline for the Detroit Lions was the same as in the real world - they had not won for the last nine Thanksgivings.
But by the end of the 2013 Thanksgiving game in Toobworld, the Lions lost yet again... but still covered the 4 point spread.
Compared to the presence of androids, aliens, and talking animals in Toobworld, this difference between Earth Prime and Earth Prime-Time is definitely negligible.
But not enough to escape the notice of this cathode cartographer.......
I was trying to think of somebody who played themselves in a fictional setting in Toobworld who could be considered the essence of Americana. For Christmas and Halloween, it's easy to find such celebrities who are always thought of in connection to those holidays. But I was having a hard time coming up with somebody for Thanksgiving. And then I thought - maybe because I'm stuck in that New England Norman Rockwell vision of America at Thanksgiving. Maybe if I turned my attention elsewhere. And then it came to me!
ROY ROGERS & DALE EVANS
AS SEEN IN:
'The Roy Rogers Show'
'The Muppet Show'
This would have been a better fit back in August, but the Duke had the Two For Tuesday slots sewed up.
Roy and Dale were inducted into the TV Crossover Hall of Fame in May of 2002.
Here are two episodes of 'The Roy Rogers Show' in one video. Hey, if I'm going to load a video for Thanksgiving, it may as well be over-stuffed.....
As the Trickster once said, "Reality is boring, that's why I change it whenever I can."
I'm just "The Man Who Viewed Too Much", and "Inner Toob" is a blog exploring and celebrating the 'reality' of an alternate universe in which everything that ever happened on TV actually takes place.
Most of my theories about the TV Universe come from thinking inside the box and thus can't be proven. But I've never been one to shy away from a tall tale.....
Remember: "The more you watch, the more you've seen!"
