It's also great for playing a couple of bars of Stone Fox Chase. :-)

Holy cow, you can still pretty much get this thing:

However, I'm always suspicious of any harmonica that costs under $20 by itself. :)

And interestingly, if the harmonica the fuzzy-headed guy is using is the same one that comes in the package, it'd ship with a G harp, which is very unusual -- most how-to-play packages are in C...

I tried playing it again (on Firefox). I had to let it buffer several times but I got it to play but the sound still wasn't in sync with the picture.

I'm currently on the go and using my IPad so right now I can't play anything. I will have to try it tomorrow when I have a chance.

@Loyal32Fan: All that is on display at the new Museum of Broadcast Communications. The chair, painting of Garfield Goose, and the bookcase are on display right when you walk in the doors and Frazier's costume is on display by the Garfield Goose puppets, which is in an area that also has all the different costumes from Bozo's Circus and Ray Rayner show. While I do like the building since they have more room for exhibits, I do NOT like having to pay $12 for admission! It's like what happened to the Museum of Science and Industry. For the longest time, it was free admission then when they started charging admission, it got expensive. I dread the day they start charging admission to Lincoln Park Zoo. Sadly, I think that day will happen within a few years. Will there be ANYTHING left to do for free in Chicago anymore?

Smctopia - Are you still having problems playing the entire clip? (I'm waiting on posting new clips until we have these issues worked out - I really wanted to move forward with the new file format)

I remember visiting the Museum of Broadcast Communications back in 1998. I saw Thomas' costume from his Garfield Goose show on display. I also saw the chair with the book on it from Family Classics also on display. It was very interesting.

I bet the reason Wicket had the last name Warrick is because he was played by then child actor Warrick Davis who would later become popular as the star of the movie Willow.

I just found out there is a network that airs the original Doctor Who series weeknights. It's RETRO TV (Channel 25.2).

Old Time: The clip moved to http://www.team1sports.com/index.php/videoPlayer/view?broadcast=56045 but it is still at 0:30:11 in the one hour show.

Yay!!! I have been hunting for this forever! I did not realize it was so short or that Captin America specifically was involved = fuzzy. I always did think that freezer guy "The Cold Air Crook" was a creep. Oh, the old channel 32...
