In the capsule today…
We find a movie written by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale. The script was written after Bob wondered if he would have been friends with his father, had they attended school together. Michael J Fox stars in: "Back to the Future!”
We find Mr Snuffleupagus being revealed to the adults on Sesame Street. The show writers wanted children to have confidence that adults would believe them... making children less likely to hide child abuse.
And we find a song on the radio by Animotion. The “butterfly” line was inspired by a 1965 movie “The Collector,” where a butterfly collector kidnaps a woman.
