Trivia: Sam mentioned an old case from 1999. In the German dubbed version, it's from 1990 (even in the German subtitles it's 1999). Obviously the missing nine years takes to long to fit into the mouth movements. (00:11:10)

The Osbournes picture Video

Trivia: Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne purchased a $6,300,000 mansion in Beverly Hills in 1999, three years before they starred in MTV's hit reality television show, "The Osbournes" (2002-2006). Bizarrely, the Prince of Darkness moved in next door to Pat Boone, the wholesome white bread Christian singing sensation of the 1950s and 1960s...and the two neighbors got on famously. Their neighborly friendship was such that Ozzy wanted to use Pat Boone's godawful 1997 cover of "Crazy Train" as the TV series theme song. MTV thought Boone would never agree to it, so they didn't even ask him; instead, MTV hired a Pat Boone impersonator to re-record the song. Later, MTV was amazed when Pat Boone himself said he would have gladly consented to them using his song, if they had only asked. Pat and Ozzy thought it was hilarious.

That '80s Show picture

Trivia: Star Glenn Howerton partially credited "That '80s Show" as having helped get his popular sitcom "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" made. Despite this show failing and being cancelled after only one season, he was able to use some of the money me made from it to buy the camcorder that was used to the shoot the original proof of concept "pilot" that was used to pitch "Always Sunny" to networks. Without "That '80s Show," there's a very high chance "Always Sunny" wouldn't exist.
