  6. Oh yes! I love looking at the wide variety of places we see work that came out of the Creature shop in those days! Many characters on Dinosaurs also came out of the Creature Shop (if anyone remembers that sitcom). It was fun when things came out to guess if something was a Henson creation and then go look it up later, which generally meant digging through magazines for interviews that might have information. I loved The Bear! TMNT too.
  7. [White Ajah Fantasy Week] Journey Before Destination Discussion

    First off: LOVE this topic! I think we see this motif/theme of the journey's importance in a lot of places. It is "the road less traveled by" it is "the road goes ever on and on" (Which is one of my favorites, or as Gandalf has said in the same story, Not all Those who Wander are Lost). It is the necessity of the long road trip from the Two Rivers forward that gives the characters time to develop and become what they need to be in order to be successful. Can you imagine what would have happened to Rand, Mat, and Perrin if they had been taken straight to Tar Valon as completely innocent as Rand's Sheep, and Mat's Da's Cows? They do not have the knowledge yet to see with eyes that understand, or see past illusions for what things really are. For Sarah, without the journey she never would have understand 'how' to defeat Jareth. His defeat is not on swords, but in understanding. "For my will is as strong as yours and my kingdom as great. You have no power over me." The Sarah at the beginning is childish, a bit spoiled, and only becomes capable of this through what she faces and learns along the way. The Emond's Fielders go through this same type of transformation, each on their own path (some fighting it, some rushing headlong into it, some with no idea where they are on it), to become what they must be to play their parts in what is to come. The Journey is the process, the forging, the creation, the understanding.... without the journey, there is no reaching a destination.
