Matt1: Oh yes, everyone has sprinkler systems here

Rush: AH!

Matt1: We’re on sand, so rain drains quickly

Rush: So…Merry Christmas, and a Happy Hanukkah as well!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Angel…oh yes…

Rush: They coincide this year.

Godwinshelley2: I mentioned the Chan group, and who knows, they may be joining us in the future

angel & fox: I prefer jewels to furs, but i took Fox when i saw those glassy eyes beading up at me.

Rush: Nice, GS!

Nothere: Try asking them for the mob act Angel

Rush: One never knows!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Rush…Happy Holidays. 😉

Rush: TYSM!

Rush: 12 minutes until our first episode…

Mike n Rachel in DC: (has Hanukkah started yet?)

Rush: “The Circle of Fear.”

Nothere: The Circle of life

Rush: Started at sundown last night.

Nothere: Bicycle

Godwinshelley2: Saw the film Aeronauts – very good – though might be a horror film if you are afraid of heights

Mike n Rachel in DC: Aha.

Matt1: Cued to dude w/ hammer?

Rush: I AM affraid of heights, yes!

Rush: I saw the preview, and it looked visually stunning.

Nothere: Nope I’m cued to London.

Godwinshelley2: Well – prepare to clutch the arm of the chair – and it was very good

Godwinshelley2: We liked it

Rush: 9 minutes…

Godwinshelley2: I need to cue up –

Rush: So do i…

Rush: I am using my DVD copy.

angel & fox: Notty, will do. Soon as Hanukah’s over. I don’t want to chat up anybody near an open flame.

Rush: Of course, the links are available above if needed!

Nothere: It’s not cute if your not cued or missing a pool cue.

hounder: hi dc and nt

hounder: ready here

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hey hounder

Nothere: Hey Hound

Mike n Rachel in DC: YouTubed in DC…

Rush: How was the short dog walk, Hounder/

Mike n Rachel in DC: woof

Nothere: How much is that doggie in the chat room? The on with the stubby little tail.

Rush: I am paused at the man with the small hammer.

Godwinshelley2: Thank you for NOT airing the episode where they hurt the dog or the one where they blind the woman – they are good but sad episodes

Mike n Rachel in DC: Dunno…just hope it’s housebroken

Matt1: I’m there too Rush

Godwinshelley2: Rush – the YouTube starts with the title LONDON – the disc skips past that

Nothere: So I need to go past London?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Paused at “LONDON”

Rush: “Circle of Fear.”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Do not pass London. Do not collect $200

Matt1: DVD & YouTube are a bit off in timing

hounder: still raining and my dog doesn’t like to get wet. lol

danventure: Got it. LONDON.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Dude w/hammer is just past LONDON

Rush: Mine starts off with a man about to cut a diamond.

Nothere: Yep Episode 13 circle of fear. I’m at the start , and it says London. No mention of which London.

Godwinshelley2: Yes – the disc starts with they man and the jewelers hammer

Rush: Mine seems to lack “London”.

Nothere: Your dog doesn’t like getting rained on? How odd.

Rush: 4 minutes…

angel & fox: I have it on YouTube, cued up on LONDON with Eyeful Tower rising from phog.

Mike n Rachel in DC: It seems to be the first 5 seconds of the YouTube version

Nothere: Right so everyone in London. It’s hammer time.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Time to get hammered

Rush: Okay, then!

Rush: I was “fearing” that I posted the wrong video!

angel & fox: If i had a video of a hammer, as the Nude Christmas Minstrels used to sing…

Nothere: Well there’s a guy. He doesn’t have a hammer, but h’ looking at a big jewel.

Rush: 2 1/2 minutes…

Mike n Rachel in DC: If I had a hammer…I’d hammer in the morning…

Rush: 🙂

Godwinshelley2: cued

Rush: TWO minutes…

hounder: i’m in the same spot as nt

Nothere: But would you hammer in the evening? Or all over the land?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Must be blind, NT. That thing is big enough to see without that magnifying glass

angel & fox: The jewels haven’t gotten bigger, it’s only the actors have gotten smaller.

Rush: Yes, but he seemed nervous.

Rush: Didn’t want to ruin his diamond!

Nothere: That’s no jewel. It’s a space station.

Rush: 90 seconds…

Rush: 75 seconds…

Mike n Rachel in DC: …danger…warning…love…



angel & fox: Notty, i’d hammer out Danger. Nick Danger, Third Eye.

Rush: 60 seconds…

Rush: (Cranking…)


Rush: 50 seconds…

Mike n Rachel in DC: tunes guitar

Rush: 40 seconds…

Rush: 30 seconds…

angel & fox: DeGAULLE of these people!

Rush: Cue fog machine…

Rush: 25…

angel & fox: How DARE you!!

Rush: 20…

Mike n Rachel in DC: gets bell

Rush: 15…

Rush: 10…

Rush: 5…

Rush: GO!!!


Rush: Shakes head…

Matt1: This guys needs more coffee

Rush: Wipes mouth…

danventure: LOL

Rush: Makes a phone call…

Mike n Rachel in DC: If I had a gong…I’d gong in the morning…I’d gong in the evening…

Nothere: Maybe it has something to do with them being Thacher in a Churh well.

Rush: Jittery.

Rush: The gloved hand.

Matt1: Ouch

Mike n Rachel in DC: Oof

angel & fox: He cut the cheese.

hounder: pretty nervous for a gem cutter

Nothere: You foolish glove. You missed the phone.

Rush: Chinese characters to…”The New Adventures of Charlie Chan.”

angel & fox: tin can; more fog; chinese characters

Rush: “Archway Hotel London”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Good looking Chan

danventure: Theme sounds more like “Creature from the Black Lagoon”…

angel & fox: Hubba HUBBA,J., what a SUIT!

Rush: Agreed.

Rush: CC and Number One Son…BARRY.

angel & fox: The Archway Hotel! They give cookies?

Nothere: Well the last film the Creature was framed for murder. He objected.

Rush: J. Carroll Naish as Chan.

angel & fox: BARRY?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Barry Chan. Hm.

Rush: Of course, he was Gangor the Snake Charmer in “CC at the Circus.”

Rush: Yes…

Rush: Barry is played by James Hong.

Rush: “Scotland Yard.”

angel & fox: I can see him & a snake face-to-face, ready to arm-wrestle.

Nothere: Your bald head cowers before the power of my mustache.

Godwinshelley2: James Hong has a nice facebook page – he lists things he is doing

angel & fox: Notty, your mustache is always on my list.

Rush: Yes. He remains very busy, doesn’t he!

Rush: he will be 90 in February.

hounder: wow. 90

angel & fox: Scotty Yard there has a nose like a pickle.

Rush: Inspector Duff.

Nothere: The James Hong marathon will take awhile.

Rush: As Duff died in “CC’s Murder Cruise,” we can think that this Duff is related to the late Duff!

Rush: I love Chan’s tie!

angel & fox: Chesterfields. They satisfy.

Rush: Very mid-50s!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Could be a younger cousin Rush. 😉

Nothere: So your for bowties. How about bowlegs?

Rush: Could be!

Rush: That would provide us some continuity!

angel & fox: He’s smoking Parliament—or WILL, soon as he can get some fuse cord.

Rush: 🙂

Mike n Rachel in DC: Guy Faulkes got into trouble like that, Angel

Nothere: THe subtitles must be drunk. They claim Number one son is Berry Chat.

angel & fox: MnR, you are so right. Guy didn’t have the Miracle Tip.

angel & fox: Notty: ; subtitles are for CHUMPS.

angel & fox: I want to know about that WALLPAPER.

Rush: Rupert Davies: Inspector John Duff. Davies appears in ELEVEN episodes.

Nothere: Dr. LAird doesn’t seem to be good at his jb.

angel & fox: Notty—blame it on the National Health.

Rush: Patience can be likened to sleeping flower; cultivate same, and it will reward you handsomely.

angel & fox: Looks like REGULAR heroin.

Nothere: Oh I don’t know Angel. Youtube is usually not that exciting. But you can find some very interesting subtitles.

Rush: J. Carroll Naish was famous for his cross-cultural roles over his long career.

Rush: Barry investigates on his own.

Nothere: You need a court order to challenge this guy’s reputation? Man getting a second opinion must be murder:)

Rush: Maybe not the best idea…

angel & fox: Oh, Notty, i actually revel in the errors. I was a PROOFREADER, in my early days, for some hi-toned stuff (Harvard Business Review asked that my employer put me on their stuff whenever possible)—

angel & fox: i’ve saved wonderful typos in my boxes of junk.

hounder: cool angel

Rush: 🙂

Nothere: A Chan kids tendency to break and enter gets him in trouble. Bout time.

Rush: Yes.

angel & fox: I’m sure Inspector Duff was asked all the time if he was any relation to the Duff Beer duffs.

Nothere: If he was he had the nicest apartment in all of Scotland Yard.

Rush: One does not solve crime by committing another.

angel & fox: “Doctor—mind if i take this 8-year-old issue of Punch?”

Rush: Barry comes through.

hounder: sad charlie doesn’t remember this in his movies. 🙂

angel & fox: NOT “squid pro quo”, i hope!

Nothere: No Chan you really need to discuss this. All your kids seem to have burglary as their second choice of profession.

angel & fox: More criminal wallpaper.

Rush: 🙂

angel & fox: Notty, you introduce a salient line for discussion.

Nothere: So Angel did you see the youtube comment about no one matching the drapes and wallpaper in these things?

angel & fox: JCN has ears like china cups.

angel & fox: BOO-hoo! POOR you, as Mama Soprano used to say.

Rush: Large ears can denote longevity!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Whereas large hands…er…never mind

Nothere: Everybody check your lifeline. Or maybe you shouldn’t.

Woyro has joined this room

Rush: Yes…”never mind”!

Nothere: Hi Woyro

Godwinshelley2: Yes the statues with such long earlobes –

angel & fox: I’m thinking of Lyndon Johnson (not a pretty thought, btw)—HIS ears didn’t keep him vertical.

Woyro: Woyro=PaulM

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hello Woyro/PaulM

Matt1: Hello Paul!

Mike n Rachel in DC: What’s the new name?

Cdirus: Hi Paul1

Rush: Yes, but LBJ had, I am sure, a pretty stressful life!

Cdirus: !

hounder: hi paul and woyro

Woyro: Woyro is my name in the furry community

Rush: Woyro!

angel & fox: Greetings to new characters now at table! Hey Woy!

Nothere: Your secret code has failed. o can’t = both a and m

Rush: I missed your arrivel!

Rush: Sorry!


Godwinshelley2: Ha – I never knew the Woyro name before

angel & fox: Rush: LBJ stressed his HOUND DOGS’ ears, as i recall—speaking of Furrys—

Godwinshelley2: I hope you can hold up for the next couple of days of deliveries, Woyro

Woyro: when you go to Monsterbash you’ll know my car because it has WOYRO licence plate

Rush: “Consisting of or resembling fur.” Learn something every day!

angel & fox: APB! APB! BOLO for WOYRO! 10-4!!

angel & fox: Fox consists of AND resembles fur.

Rush: Nice CHOP, Barry!

Matt1: Chop!

angel & fox: DEPLORABLE!

Mike n Rachel in DC: kung fu

Nothere: So ths isn’t just a secret code, but a hidden meaning. Alright someone get me the floodlights, bamboo stalks, and heat up the pincers. We’ll find out whaat Woyro means.

angel & fox: (CC just deplored it)

Rush: 🙂

Rush: “YOU are colaborator!”

Woyro: if you take the word SKUNK and move each letter 4 spaces forward along the alphabet….you get WOYRO

angel & fox: I think Woyro is derived from the Seychelles Islands. Something MUST be, & so far nothing has been found to be. So i say Seychelles.

Rush: “YOU are traitor!”

angel & fox: How about if you transpose QWERTYUIOP?

Rush: The other end of the gloved hand we saw at the beginning.

angel & fox: I hated Van Heflin but i didn’t scratch up a nice attache case with diamonds & Chesterfields.

Rush: Good news follows bad news like day follows night.

Nothere: Well Thanks Paul. But I didn’t even get to threaten you. LEt alone use the stalks. Do you know how long it’s gonna take to put away all this toture junk?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Husband now out of coma!

angel & fox: I like the thick, not-coiled Brit phone cords,

Rush: Clocing credits…

Mike n Rachel in DC:

Rush: (Closing)


Rush: (Applause…)

angel & fox: While we cue BACKFIRE i’m gonna look up a sunburned friend.

Nothere: Touching sunburn friend like pulling suddenly. Jerk move.

Rush: Yes, Angel…

Rush: A five-minute break….

Mike n Rachel in DC: Need to get my sunburn ointment

Rush: Please ready your copy of “Backfire.”

angel & fox: Ready! Aimed!

hounder: ready here

Nothere: (YEaaaah)

Cdirus: I’m paused at the Sphinx

Mike n Rachel in DC: Ready to unwrap the mummy

Matt1: Cued to Sphinx

danventure: Ditto

Nothere: Nobody fir. Five minute break called. Hve your blindfolds and cigarette at the ready.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Imhotep!

Rush: 3 minutes…

Nothere: Arbek Bey

Godwinshelley2: I’m cued

Mike n Rachel in DC: Ardeth?

Godwinshelley2: Sphinx

Rush: TWO minutes…

Mike n Rachel in DC: Sphinx, plank…ready for my workout

Rush: Yes, we start at the Sphinx.

Rush: 75 seconds..

Rush: 60 seconds…

Mike n Rachel in DC: Sounds like the Egyptian tour…start at the Sphinx

Rush: Everyone ready?

Rush: 50 seconds…

Rush: 40 seconds…

Mike n Rachel in DC: Si.

Rush: 30 seconds…

Rush: 25…

Rush: 20…

Nothere: Tanna leaves are packed and ready for the unholy…nothing to se here move along.

Rush: 15…

Rush: 10…

Mike n Rachel in DC: lights torch

Rush: 5…

Rush: GO!!!


Rush: Enters tomb…

Nothere: (Wolf Howl)

Rush: Slides huge stone.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Moves 10000 lb stone

Nothere: Should be a jackel, but we didn’t have that sound effect.

Rush: Twins.

angel & fox: I like how the ancient Egypsheens had smooth-rolling casters,

Rush: Seals him in the tomb.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Buried alive!

Rush: Laughs…

angel & fox: BAD showwwww! BAD showwww!!

Rush: Title…

angel & fox: His WIFE?

hounder: iknew that was coming.

Mike n Rachel in DC: He always wanted to get away from it all

Rush: SHE will hang him!

Nothere: Oh not another evil twin seals his brother in an ancient Egyptian tomb plot. If I had a dollar for every time that happened.

Rush: “British Museum, London”

angel & fox: These double-dudes NEVER consider the ifey-wifey part. Ooooof, in the case of THESE two!

Nothere: Stiff upper lip Angel.

angel & fox: Notty, we can’t talk here.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Egyptologist…

angel & fox: Sir Basil has been HELD UP indeed!

Nothere: Don’t want to confuse it with the British Museum of Alabama Rush.

Rush: Should use white gloves to touch antiquities.

Rush: YES, NT!

angel & fox: I was troubled, too, by the title “BRITISH MUSEUM / LONDON”. In Ohio, London is a big town too. London, England is but a dustmite to a Buckeye.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Ammon Roz in subtitles. 🙂

Rush: Yes?

Rush: Phonetic spelling, no doubt!

angel & fox: THE DORCHESTER. Oh, REALLY? We’re supposed to take a WORD for that?

Cdirus: angel

Mike n Rachel in DC: Amun Ra, perhaps?

angel & fox: Many are eaten at Oxford.

Rush: He forgot: “Irreconsilable differences.”

angel & fox: In remaster series coming 2020, 2TunkAmen has a rap right about here.

Mike n Rachel in DC: He said tomayto, she said tomahto

angel & fox: A “quarter”?

Rush: 🙂

Mike n Rachel in DC: Home for Gentlewomen?

angel & fox: PEnnsylvania 6-5000.

Rush: “St. Mary’s Home for Gentlewomen”

Nothere: Ah but when we learnwho had the potato , we’ll have made real progress Mike and or Racheal.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Is that like a “home” of ill-repute?

angel & fox: SHE looks WAY past “gentle”.

Rush: “857-4309”

angel & fox: MnR: The HOIR’s have blue lights, not so much bronze plaques.

Rush: “11th Commandment”

Mike n Rachel in DC: She clearly stole some curtains to make that dress

Cdirus: 11th commandment?

angel & fox: 867-5309.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Angel: Upscale…

Rush: “You shall love one another as I have loved you.”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Keeping with the theme…

angel & fox: ELLINGTON School for Boys? Take the “A” train!

Rush: She’s blind.

Nothere: No I wanted a photo of your daughter not your cow.

angel & fox: She’d blond.

angel & fox: Richard Dawson? From Hogan’s Heroes?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hm. Must serve a lot of beef…

Rush: Slip of the key turns blindness to blondness!

Rush: HM…Richard Dawson…

Nothere: I see Nothing NOTHING

Rush: Later the host of “Family Feud”?

angel & fox: A purveyor of political nonsense…? He should STICK AROUND! Probably have his own show by NOW!!

angel & fox: I see NOTHING…

angel & fox: ERMINE for VERMIN!!

Woyro: i caught that too Rush

Rush: Yes…AND on “Hoagan’s Heroes.”

angel & fox: She’s totally hot.

Nothere: Revoking titles? THe madman how will we know which book is which?

Rush: Draws a huge crowd…

angel & fox: Notty: Down the memory hole, all of ’em.
