The opening scene shows actors leaving a playhouse after a performance of "Death Of A Salesman," possibly as a reference to the similar themes of misunderstood or altered reality and the desire for greatness felt by Mary Dahl. The frequent viewing of old episodes of "Love That Baby" also serve as a stand-in for the flashbacks of "Death Of A Salesman." See more »

Remember that time when Poison Ivy nearly smothered us in those vines? The ones with the really sharp thorns?

Animation has changed so much in the last few years, it is hard to even define the borders that distinguish it from live action today. Yes, there was a "dead zone" from the 60s to the 90s, when quality actually declined because no one wanted to spend the bucks for hand-drawn cells, and computers had not yet come along to fill the gap. And now we are back in a Golden Age of sorts, where, astonishingly, some of the product coming out of the US is as good as the stuff from Japan. Or better. Against this backdrop we have the Baby Doll episode from the Emmy winning multi-year series. While just a tad more satirical then the usual episodes (which are almost all GREAT) an astonishing script and an UNFORGETTABLE ending take this single episode to the status of legend.
