Clue of the Day

FYI, we don’t reveal the answer outright but hint at it. It is okay to give possible wrong answers.

11-word Alert: Our comments show up on the homepage sidebar, so prefacing any hint with 11 non-hint words is the best practice.

All comments and predictions on the CotD posts are deleted after about a week, so be fearless!

An Old Category: This one was called “Feline Fine at the Movies” from the last round of the match played on 5/2/2008.

$400: This A.A. Milne feline finally earned his stripes: he got his own movie in 2000
$800: Someone left the cat out in the rain in this 1961 film (P.S.–it was Audrey Hepburn)
$1200: Fans of a 1940 Disney film know that Figaro the cat belongs to this woodcarver
$1600: (Hi, I’m Sean Hayes.) I could tell you a Thing One or a Thing Two about this film: I played Mr. Humberfloob & the voice of the fish in it
$2000: This villain’s face was never shown in his first film, “From Russia with Love”, but we did get a good look at his cat show

Today’s Quote: A study of economics usually reveals that the best time to buy anything is last year. ~ Marty Allen

I saw this quote and put it on my list last Sunday, little imagining Marty Allen would pass away on Monday. Rest in peace, Marty (3/23/1922-2/12/2018)

    First of all – Perhaps we should all give ourselves a gentle, modest pat on the back for at least knowing the right answer yesterday since it turned out a triple-whiffer for the players. (Granted, mine was the wildest of guesses, but what the hay… I’ll take it!)
    Today’s CotD should be easier for the panel. My wife often accuses me of being like one of the main residents from this place for my refusal to completely “grow up”. (I keep reminding her, “I’m child-like, NOT child-ish!” There IS a difference, after all! Plus, I LOVE the brand of peanut butter named after the little guy.) The late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, named his ranch/estate after this fictional locale, too…
    It’s Friday so I’m going for it… 3 FOR 3 TO END THE WEEK!!

      I agree with you, JLane, that things will go better today in FJ. I’m going with 2/3 on this one on the off-chance that someone jots down the title of the book and then doesn’t have time to change it to the place.
