"Sackbut" would have been enough. I have read "Charlotte's Web", but it has been several decades. I'm pretty sure I saw the movie "The Lion King" once, also saw the stage musical at the Fox in St. Louis. Friday started with Pentecost before I figured out that the math was no good, then latched on to Madagascar for lack of time and a better guess.

For both Camera and Tokyo, I'm not sure I would have buzzed in, but I had the correct responses pretty quickly.

Templeton is reluctant to accompany Charlotte and Wilbur to the fair, but after he hears the animals (is it mainly the sheep?) describe all the fairground garbage, he's in.
It's the goose! I was semi-obsessed with both the book and animated movie for a few years as a kid. Somewhere in a box of stuff at my parents' house is a program from the local high school's production of the (non-musical) play, signed by the cast. In spite of these fond childhood memories, I still have yet to see the Dakota Fanning film.

Former trombone player here who got it from sackbut immediately, but then started visualizing the slide positions for the notes mentioned in the clue and second-guessing myself. (Really??)

Combine those with getting Lion King the moment AT said "Hamlet," and I was riding high on FJs until the Pisces disaster. The poll here goes from 84% Wednesday to 16% Thursday. I wonder if there's ever been such a himalayan drop between FJs?

Yes! Agnes Moorehead! What child would not fantasize about living in a world of garbage after seeing that sequence?

We haven't seen the remake either. Did they turn that scene into a condemnation of the Arable family's carbon footprint?
