The Museum of Obscure Cartoon References
by Adam Purple
I entered through the revolving door and found the information desk. The woman behind the counter spun her chair toward me. A pencil protruded from the tight bun atop her head.
"I’m looking for the band that did the cartoon--"
"South Park, third episode, 1999. Second floor. The Kornucopia Room. Stairs are on the left."
"No, see, there was a song, but it was about growing up…learning--"
Her eyebrows arched. "Cartoon Chicks. Downstairs, in the Betty Boop Basement. West Wing, the Jessica Rabbit Repository." She leaned forward to eye me over the top of her glasses. "Adults only."
"No, not like that. Just listen. They did a song. About tying shoes…"
She nodded, just once. "Spongebob, episode 21. Third floor. The Hall-o-Ween.
"That’s it! You’ve got a killer memory."
Her lips turned upward at one corner. "Murder and Mayhem. Gary Larson Library. Third floor." She spun away.
