western cartoon trope episodes: the episode where everyone takes mushrooms and listens to witch house, the benghazi reenactment episode, the episode where someone eats 35 pounds of doritos and commits hara-kiri, the episode where everyones hands are replaced with spiders, the episode where 200 disembodied corpses are found in the janitor’s closet
Hermione Granger is a witch in Gryffindor House at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She makes her first appearance in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone when she is in her first year along with Harry and Ron. Hermione is the smartest witch in her year, but has a reputation as a bossy know-it-all. xx
No, my Dark Shadows friends, this is not Collinwood. This is Evelyn Poole’s house in Penny Dreadful otherwise known as “The Witch’s Castle.”
Now the non-Dark Shadows fans here’s a side by side comparison. First Collinwood from the original 1966 Dark Shadows.
Second is the version of Collinwood from the 1991 Dark Shadows reboot.
The final picture is The House of the Seven Gables in Salem Massachusetts. That last one is the basis for the house in the novel by Nathanial Hawthorne which was used in a segment of the Vincent Prince Movie Twice Told Tales.
It may mean nothing but the original House of the Seven Gables dealt with a house built by a man named Matthew Maule, whose enemies had him condemned as a sorcerer so they could claim his property. Just before he was put to death he cried out “God will give you blood to drink.” The bulk of the novel is about fate (or a curse) leading to his descendants reclaiming the house.
Again, this might not mean anything but in the 1970s until 2002 Fred Saberhagen wrote a book series from the perspective of Dracula himself and in many of those books Dracula used the alias Matthew Maule, the true patriarch and the man who built the cursed house. In Fred Saberhagen’s books Dracula chose the alias because Matthew Maule’s last words amused him.
In Fred Saberhagen’s books Dracula doesn’t say so but he was also, much like the ghost of Matthew Maule, for better or worse, looking out for his mortal descendants.
And oh, yes, since someone else was likely to mention it, Collinwood is also the basis for the house in the opening of the old Scooby Doo Where are you?
opening credits, the bat flying out is presumed to be the vampire Barnabas Collins, who was modeled after Dracula. Barnabas of Dark Shadows, like Fred Saberhagen’s Dracula was protectively watching after his mortal descendants though he did not openly admit that’s what he was doing.
Oh, yes, and here’s Collinwood from the 2012 Dark Shadows movie which featured Eva Green as the witch Angelique.
So who can name every character and game these characters are from?
Edit: Okay so there’s the source of this image and the Artist said not to distribute it across websites. But I originally had no idea of where it came from and I just wanted to find out all the games’ names so that I could play them.
