Jaws Reference?

In the opening scene, Bob and David decide to go see a movie called "Claws". Is that meant to be a play on "Jaws"? This was the same year as that movie's release, after all. Garrettk41 05:11, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

Happy Birthday rights?

The end of a section on Episode 0001's talk page reminds me, on Old School: Vol. 2 in this episode, when Maria gives David the present, it fades out before they kiss because she sings a few seconds of "Happy Birthday." Seems fair, seeing as it's still copyrighted here...

Yet on 40 Years of Sunny Days, "If I Knew You Were Coming" was included, and that contains a few seconds of "Happy Birthday," maybe a second or two more of what Maria sang. Not relevant, I know, but anyone care to explain? ---- Jesse (talk) 16:15, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

I believe the lyrics to the song are copyrighted, but the melody isn't, but I'm not sure that's true or not. - Oscarfan 01:57, December 11, 2009 (UTC)
Hmm, maybe... ---- Jesse (talk) 23:00, December 11, 2009 (UTC)
This is generally believed to be the case- the melody was published in 1893 under the title "Good Morning to All," but "Happy Birthday To You" wasn't copyrighted until 1935. Therefore, the music is in the public domain, but the lyrics aren't. The "Elmo's World" segments frequently use "Happy Birthday" sans lyrics in the segments where Elmo asks whether or not birthday cakes are involved with the subject he's thinking about.

So we have this cleared up for now? ---- Jesse (talk) 23:09, December 11, 2009 (UTC)
Yep. —Scott (talk) 15:52, December 18, 2009 (UTC)
Good! ---- Jesse (talk) 01:02, December 19, 2009 (UTC)

Love, Amy?

I'm not sure that this is the right title. I can't find anything close to that title in ASCAP or BMI, and I also tried "Grover Got a Letter", and other variations on that, which this page had previously used. Can anybody help? -- Ken (talk) 03:31, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

The CTW Archive lists have a song called "A Postcard from Amy". Sounds about right to me! -- Wendy (talk) 01:26, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Incidentally, could "The Pocket Song" sung here be actually just "Pockets"?? -- Wendy (talk) 02:31, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I think "Pockets" is right. I saw that one time, but I forgot to add it. Thanks! -- Ken (talk) 04:06, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
