I Love Callbacks

Nothing makes me smile like a good callback.  I don’t know why, but they just make me laugh.

The more I watch cartoons and read books with Nicholas, it’s pretty easy to see when the authors are of my age/generation – they tend to drop little callbacks to things from “back in the day” into their works.

Today’s find: the new Nickelodeon show, Planet Sheen.

One of the characters is Mr. Nesmith:

Here’s another Monkee (with a stocking cap) named Nesmith:

As soon as I heard the name, laughed out loud.

This is not my all time favorite, but it’s pretty good.  As I stumble upon them in the future, I’ll post them here.

What’s your favorite callback?
