Oooooh, another toughie. I didn’t even recognize anything to guess at. I guess I’ll wait until Dix and Fraggle have worked their magic and see if I’ve ever seen any of the movies….
I’m sure you’ve seen at least a couple!
I’ll check back this evening and see if I recognize anything….

It’s been a while since that 😅
