|I arrived in Minneapolis on a rainy, Thursday afternoon. I called the studio, but was unable to get in the tour the following morning. That evening I drove by the studio just to get a picture of the building and sign. As the rains stopped I got out of the car and quickly took a picture of the studio.|
|I then had my picture taken next to
the sign and prepared to leave.
Luckily I met Paul Chaplin and Brad Keely at that point and they invited me in for a few minutes.
|Just inside the door was the Time/ Space sign and some Tragic Moments figures.|
|I also saw the Router Ouija
Board's Bless This Mess sign and Tibby. (I understand he disappeared about a year
later.) The Daktari Stool was around the corner, but I didn't take a picture.
(A few years later I picked up the Tragic Moments, Bless This Mess and Daktari Stool during the eBay auction.)
|After chatting with Brad for a little while and seeing Mary Jo walk across the set I suddenly realized I was just holding my camera. A quick shot of the SOL set.|
|Directly across the room was the season 8 Roman World set. It hadn't been seen on television yet when I was there.|
|Of course I had to get a picture of the spaghetti planet.|
|And finally, one of the lunch area, which I recognized from the 1995 infomercial filmed there.|
|As I was leaving I asked if I could get something for a keepsake and Brad graciously complied with a business card.|
