Topic tags/keywords: question

Have you ever noticed on the opening of Roy Underhills show. He has a toolbox in one hand and an axe in the other. He starts out in the city crossing an intersection. As he walks to the country, there is a cut scene where he pets a dog on the head. Where did the axe go. The next scene the axe returns and he crosses over a stream, on his way to his workshop.
Sorry but I love stuff like that

Maybe he used the Axe for a seat and when he sat down to pet the Dog and it got “Stuck”...LOL… I Love that show! See how Disorganised his Shop is? A Kiln sitting there, a Hand Cranked Grinder. OLD Tools all over the place.

Good Grief Charlie Brown! A man after my own heart!

Thanks superdav!

I love Roy; his shop is quaint, his tools are great, and he’s highly entertaining. The other dog that was standing behind him had the axe in his mouth and was waiting for him to get through patting the other dog so he could hand it back to him. The dogs love him too you know.

Of all the years I watched his show, something I noticed just this year is when he gets to his shop and puts his tools down, he always puts his hands together and takes a half bow. Funny how you notice things after seeing something for a hundred times.

Hehee..good catch! If you visit the website, (Internet Movie Data Base) they have a special section on video/TV/movie bloopers. You could bring it to everyone’s attention there! Update: This ‘goof’ is already noted in the website: you da man, superdav!!!
