Earth coordinates.

Annoyingly my Internet service was down for much of yesterday so I was unable to update the Blog!

My good friend and ally in animation art collecting Lee Clevenger directed to me to this very cool thing he noticed whilst watching "A Christmas Special" a while back. During the scene when the heroes are gathered in Man-At-Arms' laboratory searching for Orko we see coordinates for the planet Earth appear on the screen. The numbers that appear actually relate to Filmation's place of business during the time of this production! As an example 18107 (street number) 818 3457414 (telephone number) 4720847 (Telex number)!

Whoa, that's something else! Amusing when a mystery like this one is revealed ... On a similar note, I also got a kick out of how the makers of the series would scramble words to come up with brand new character names or sometimes spell them out backwards ... Ex: "Mada (Adam) and his elephants," from She-Ra's "Just The Way You Are." :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
