AS SEEN IN: 'Ellen' "Emma" O'BSERVATIONS: Emma Thompson was not the only one with a big personal secret in this episode. Penn's another televersion who's totally different from the original. Sean Penn's appearance in this episode links 'Ellen' to 'Two And A Half Men'. BCnU!
AS SEEN IN: 'Mr. Ed' "Clint Eastwood Meets Mr. Ed"
O'BSERVATION: 'Rawhide' is mentioned as Clint Eastwood's TV show, but it doesn't necessarily mean that it's the same show as seen in the real world. But then again, it could be an historical recreation of the life of Rowdy Yates. BCnU!
The late great Charles Durning is the official portrayal of Santa Claus in the main Toobworld, having played the role five times:
Boyfriend for Christmas, A (2004)
Mr. St. Nick (2002)
Mrs. Santa Claus (1996)
Elmo Saves Christmas (1996)
It Nearly Wasn't Christmas (1989)
But even though Durning passed away in 2012, I think there's a new production n which I'm going to claim it's Durning's Santa.
All we see of Santa Claus in an early Mercedes Benz commercial for this year is his arm waving out the window of the car. So who else could it be in Toobworld and still be the official televersion of Santa?
(Since that first blipvert, Mercedes Benz has come out with several more ads in which Santa Claus can now be seen. However, I'm just going to toss those over to other Toobworlds - both the naughty and the nice ones....)
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!"
