Ikar, Zontor and Dweeble demanded to know why they didn't make
the cut for their high school's production of The Nutcracker.


  1. Hilarious captions, Brian! And one of my favorite old TV shows. Have a wonderful Christmas and all the very best in the New Year!!

    1. Thanks Mike! Hope you had a great time over the holidays!

  2. I like that Nutcracker one! Also, if memory serves, the first photo is from the first ever Outer Limits episode, a pretty creepy one about a being from some other time/space dimension that kinda looks like a walking bowl of jello in human form...- Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    1. Yes, the first episode was called Galaxy Being, the one that started it all. I still love those early special effects. Happy holidays!!

    2. I know I sound like a broken record about this or that having scared the crap out of me when I was a kid, but add The Galaxy Being to the list! It certainly got my attention the first time around, and I 've been a huge fan of the original series ever since!

  3. My favorite part of that episode was the metaphysical discussion between Cliff Robertson and the Galaxy Being. At age 8 I wasn't exactly sure what a metaphysical discussion was, but one thing I was sure of: I was going to be watching this series every week.
