    Pushme Pullyu is also a 2-headed critter in Dr. Doolittle also.

    That's where I remember it from. Not the Dr. Doolittle that was done recently with Eddie Murphy but the really old one starring Rex Harrison.

    There was a two headed horse in Ultima 6 called Pushme Pullyu.
     
  11. REALLY... OLD... ONE... 1967...*sighs*

    But... I remember watching the original movie at the Drive-In in my parent's station wagon with the brothers and sisters piled in... Saturday night, summer of 1968... theater popcorn... licorice candy...

    It wasn't THAT long ago...

    Futurama referenced Dr. Dolittle.

    Ultima referenced Dr. Dolittle.

    Futurama did not reference Ultima.

    There is nothing to see here. Please move along.

    Sure there is. While they didn't reference Ultima they did make reference to the birth of the World Wide Web, August 6th, 1991.
