Did You Know?
When Joyce (Winona Ryder
) goes looking for Will (Noah Schnapp
) at Castle Byers in the first episode and has a flashback, the password to get in is 'Radagast'. This refers to one of the five wizards (Gandalf the Gray, Saruman the White, Alatar and Pallando the two blue wizards, and Radagast the Brown) in Lord of the Rings, and is one of many references to the books throughout the series. Only Saruman, Gandalf, and Radagast appear in the movies. See more
In the early 1980s, the lights on the kids' bicycles would have been powered by a tire-driven dynamo. The dynamo's output and thus the light level would have varied according to the bike's speed, becoming totally dark when the bike was stopped.
Additionally, as with the "flashlights" anachronism, the headlights would have been yellowish, not the blue-white of a modern LED headlamp. See more
