🦊 In 1979, when he played Elvis in John Carpenter's Elvis, Kurt Russell was still mostly known for appearing in live-action Disney movies like The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes. A couple years later, when he appeared as Snake Plissken in Escape From New York, he also voiced Copper (the hound) in The Fox and the Hound. He revisited the role of Elvis in an uncredited voiceover in Forrest Gump.

🎼 The German Augmented Sixth Chords Scorebreak: German Augmented Sixth Chords: enharmonic spellings be darned! They're just flat six chords with a dominant seventh! Get over yourself, Beethoven.

🖊 Norman Mailer appeared on one episode of Gilmore Girls, the aptly titled "Norman Mailer, I'm pregnant!" He played himself. He appeared as a character named Stanford White in the Milos Forman movie Ragtime, and he looks pretty silly in it.

😡 The Mad Magazine Scorebreak: Mad Magazine: Gone but never forgotten.

📺 UHF was shot in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which not a lot of movies or television shows are. But the recent great show Reservation Dogs is one of them!

🧜‍♀️ The Little Mermaid TV show had a surprising number of voice actors reprising their roles from the movie, including Jodi Benson (Ariel), Samuel E. Wright (Sebastian), Kenneth Mars (King Triton), and Pat Carroll (Ursula)
