    Well I guessed 3 of them correctly: CPK, dinky cars & NERF. Can't believe I didn't think of Smurfs - that should have been pretty obvious now that I think about it.

    D&D and fast food toys, though... would have never called those in a million years.

    I think I put in a list early in this thread that I was thinking: Hot Wheels, Super Hero figures, Cabbage Patch Kids & Home Video Game counsels. Guess I got 2 of the 4 right. Hot Wheels/Matchbox are pretty much the same thing.

    As I said in the other thread... surprised this is happening since the creators were trying to get people to watch multiple times to up the views. :lol

    Excellent! Love all the movies on the list except for Pretty Woman, which is more my wife's (and her dad's as he loves Julia Roberts, lol) thing. Should still be an interesting watch as we both enjoyed the Dirty Dancing episode despite neither of us being super into that movie.

    God i love the humor in these things.

    Watching Forrest Gump right now. It is talking about how the script was shelved again and almost ended in the gaveyard, there is an image of a Forrest Gump grave, but two graves off to the side read "Leonard Part IV" and "Leonard Part V" :lol 

    two others i am struggling to figure out are The Umpire Strikes Out (Empire Strikes Back?) and Blood Kickr

    Gundam isn't much of a thing in the US mainstream. It had a few years then went away.

    A Gundam episode would mostly be a episode about its fandom in Japan with a small part about it being big in the US for a few years.

    Imagine if they made an episode dedicated to these things:
