New “Body Swap” Comedy TVSeries Comments on Race, Gender & Sex

 

Are you familiar with the film Freaky Friday? There are actually two versions of the film. One came out in 1976 and starred Jodie Foster and Barbara Harris. The other was released in 2003 and starred Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan.

It’s a fun and crazy idea of a child swapping lives with their parent. Not only does each person have to get used to living their lives in another body as another person, but it’s also a great way to give insight into how it is to be the other person.

As if that idea isn’t crazy enough. Imagine being a straight female who accidentally swaps bodies with her gay male best friend? Talk about CRAZY!

Queer virtual cable TV network, Revry, pays homage to the cult classic Freaky Friday with Life Is Easy–a comedy series that uses the body swap trope to highlight race, gender, sex, and the true meaning of being “woke” in 2020. Created in New Zealand and featuring a multi-cultural cast, the series will have its live world premieres on Revry’s live TV channels on July 19th at 5pm & 8pm (PST). Viewers can also binge watch the entire season on July 19th by upgrading to Revry Premium. 

Here is a brief synopsis of the series. Normally I write up a brief synopsis, but there are eight episodes thus far, so I thought the “official” synopsis would be better to understand (more concise and to the point).

Welcome to the world of Jamie-Li and Curtis: Yin and Yang; Potato and gravy; BFF’s since childhood. Jamie-Li, a straight Chinese-Kiwi woman, and Curtis, a gay white man, have a friendship that defies race, gender and sex…or so they think. After a night of wet and wild partying on their joint 25th birthdays, the two Gemini’s wake up to find themselves in each other’s bodies–revealing a hot mess of unexplored issues that unravels the way they see others, one another, and themselves. They thought they were “woke”–until they woke up in each other’s bodies! Life Is Easy (LIE) is a smart, funny, sexy, wholesome, and thought-provoking 8-episode satire series exploring the complexities of race, gender and sexuality in today’s seemingly “woke” society.

I like the idea of a man and woman switching bodies and trying to get accustomed to their new “parts.” I’m sure initially it would be interesting (very “touchy-feely”), but after that you have to get used to have “things work.”

It is also an interesting perspective to have a straight person get used to living life as a gay/homosexual, especially because Curtis has a long term boyfriend. Jamie-Li (or “JL”) crushes on guys, as a girl, but the guys she likes are straight because she’s straight. It’s really crazy!

This show is not for the “faint at heart.” There is a lot of talk about sex and sexual related things. There is also sex and nudity (although nothing is really seen… there are naked bodies). If gay relationships “bother” you in any way, this is also not the series for you.

Overall I liked the premise of the show. It’s fun to think of all the possibilities and challenges Jamie-Li and Curtis could have being the other person, and how the other person could make them better (if that makes any sense?).

I’m not a “prude” (not at all), but I could have done without excessive sex talk and sex scenes. I think the show could have been just a funny with less of this. There is also a lot of foul language which frankly I don’t think is necessary either (that’s just my own personal opinion).

Jamie-Li and Curtis are likable characters. The show also has an assortment of interesting characters as well including Curtis’ boyfriend, JL’s mom, and their co-workers.

You do have to understand when “Curtis” (JL in his body) kisses another guy, it’s really JL kissing him.

It can be very confusing, so you have to keep things in perspective.

I like that they added other stories into the mix, and not just their bodies being swapped. Take for example JL finding out her biological father is still alive, or the duo having to deal with career issues.

Overall it’s an entertaining show.

Currently there are either episodes. They are each about 30 minutes long with commercials.

Bazinga! Now available, The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Series

 

Every now and then a television series comes on the air that is a “can’t miss” week after week.

I remember the days before DVR. We had a VCR to tape things, but we’d forget, we didn’t have a blank tape, or it got messed up. If you missed the airing, you were out of luck. For this reason I am grateful for not only DVR, but also the ability to stream your favorite shows and pick up your favorite seasons on Blu-ray or DVD.

One of my family’s favorite television series is The Big Bang Theory. We were sorry that the series had to end. Thankfully it’s not only in syndicate, but the complete series is available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital.

The Complete Series of this blockbuster comedy follows the hilarious trajectory of best friends Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper: geniuses in the lab and challenged in the real world. Yet both somehow manage to entangle themselves in wedded bliss: Leonard with his street-smart neighbor, Penny, and Sheldon, after a long courtship, with Amy, a successful neurobiologist. Across 12 universally beloved seasons, they and their friends—fellow scientist Howard, his adorable microbiologist wife, Bernadette, and astrophysicist bachelor Raj—attempt to solve quotidian conundrums posed by academia, family crises and video games while solving world-changing problems in physics. Proving, ultimately, that what matters most in the universe is fun, friendship and a well-founded theory. Oh, and a Nobel Prize would be nice.

From Chuck Lorre Productions, Inc., in association with Warner Bros. Television, The Big Bang Theory stars Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch. Chuck Lorre, Steve Holland, Steven Molaro, Bill Prady, Dave Goetsch, Eric Kaplan and Maria Ferrari are executive producers of the series, which was created by Lorre & Prady.

I honestly could not tell you who is my favorite character from the series. They are all hysterical, especially when the characters are all together.

I own a “Soft Kitty” t-shirt and a “Soft Kitty” plush toy. Whenever one of my family members complain they can’t sleep, or don’t feel well, I actually break out in song and sing “Soft Kitty.” My kids just roll their eyes at me because they think I am weird. Ha Ha.

The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Series is now available commercial free (which I appreciate a lot). Individual season are also available for purchase.

Digital copies of The Big Bang Theory (the complete series and individual seasons) are available from retailers such as iTunes, Amazon Prime, GooglePlay and Vudu. Physical copies (Blu-ray and/or DVD) are available from major retailers like Walmart, Target, Amazon and Best Buy.

You can also purchase the complete series and individual seasons here at OwnWBTV.com.

I own the complete series. It’s so nice to be able to watch episodes back to back (binge watching) whenever I’m in the mood for some laughs. I also appreciate the opportunity to view specific episodes and seasons as well.

I’ve started watching the series from the beginning. So far I’m about 1/3 of the way through season three. There were twelve seasons of this hit show. There are over 200+ episodes. The series ran from September 24, 2007 to May 16, 2019.

You can check out the show on Facebook. It looks like they still publish posts on their official fan page. They also seem to update their Twitter page frequently.

If you would like to see what others are saying about the show, or if you would like to engage in conversation with others about the show, use the hashtag #BigBangTheory.

Do you have a favorite character on the show? What about a favorite episode or story line? Feel free to comment and share your thoughts. I always love to hear from readers.

Get Ready to Party – Prom Style – Wednesday (5/13) on ABC

 

The COVID-19 pandemic is something that will certainly go down in history as a memorable life event. It’s something that will not soon be forgotten. Stories from the quarantine and events of 2020 will be passed down from generation to generation. It’s this generation’s “I had to walk three miles in a snowstorm to get to school” story that our grandparents used to tell us.

Young people should be focusing on happier life events, such as graduation and prom. It’s a shame that such an important life event can’t go as originally planned.

I vaguely remember my prom. I had such a great time, even if one of the school’s bully’s was out to get me.

Long story short, I didn’t go to my junior prom. My best friend’s and I had an “anti-prom” party that night. It was more so because none of us were invited (but we all secretly wanted to go). I vowed not to miss my senior prom.

When it was time for my senior prom, no one asked me (again). One of my best friends REALLY wanted me to go, except she had a boyfriend so it was a given they were going together. In fact, all the people who wanted me to go with them were a part of a couple.

Thankfully my older cousin stepped in to take me to my prom so that I could have a memorable night. No one knew who he was, so that would make things less awkward.

My senior prom was a wonderful night. I thought I looked pretty too. In fact, my prom gown looked nearly identical to my biological mother’s prom gown. I never knew my biological mother (that’s a story for another day), so the fact that our gowns looked nearly identical – the same color too – is pretty weird.

Above in my father and biological mother’s prom picture. My gown was pretty much the same gown, except mine had short sleeves and I didn’t wear gloves.

I couldn’t find my prom picture to share. I looked for it, but it’s probably in one of the photo albums in the basement.

I was so excited when my daughter went to prom. She also skipped her junior prom and only went to her senior prom.

She opted to buy her own dress on her own terms. It was a total surprise to me. Even more surprisingly is that she chose a very simple dress. The only “sparkle” was in her shoes. Then again, my daughter was never into frilly girly things.

I was not fond her of her make-up. The make-up person made it way too dark.

My daughter at the seamstress getting her dress taken in.

To be honest, we never thought our son would go to his prom. First of all, it’s not his “thing.” And secondly, he is an overly shy person, so we never thought he’d have a date. To our surprise he had a date for prom (another long story for another day).

Our son even went to prom two years later with his long time girlfriend (2+ years). They made such a beautiful couple. Too bad they broke up a year later.

The last prom we’ve had to look forward to was our son’s ex-girlfriend’s senior prom (he’s pictured from that prom above). That was over two years ago. Sigh… But that is about to change.

This coming Wednesday (May 13, 2020), three of ABC’s beloved comedies – The Goldbergs, Schooled, and American Housewife, are taking us all to the prom. So grab your “plus one” and settle in for a night of laughs and reliving old memories from when you were going to your prom (or had thought about going). It’s part of #ABCPromNight.

It is also the season finales of The Goldbergs, Schooled and American Housewife.

ABC wanted to bring some of the magic and fun of prom into your home. Check out the #ABCPromNight promo.

 

I know that I’ll be tuning in with my husband. Sadly both of our kids have to work that night. They are both “essential workers” (our son works in a grocery store, and our daughter works at a restaurant).

I met one of the stars from The Goldbergs a few years ago – Wendi McLendon-Covey. I loved the show before meeting her. After meeting her, I loved the show even MORE. Wendi was such a sweetheart. I was suppose to be asking her questions, but instead, she was asking me about myself, my family, and our cats (we both love cats).

Wendi McLendon-Covey (“The Goldbergs”) and me.

I’ve lost about 60 pounds since this picture was taken. I’m not a fan of seeing ME in a photo, but I love that I have a little something to remember my wonderful talk with Wendi.

Here is a brief explanation of each prom-tastic episode;

The Goldbergs – “Pretty in Pink”

Adam and Brea decide to go to prom together, but when Adam worries he won’t be Prom King, Beverly’s actions jeopardize the event. Meanwhile, Barry teaches Erica how to be compassionate and caring when Geoff’s dad is in the hospital. (8:00-8:30 p.m.)

Schooled – “Clueless”

Lainey has a difficult choice regarding her relationship with Barry and her friendship with CB. Meanwhile, Coach Mellor is put in a tough parenting position when Toby is invited to prom as a freshman by a senior. (8:30-9:00 p.m.)

American Housewife – “Prom” –

Katie confronts a classmate’s mom when she suspects Anna-Kat is being bullied at school. Meanwhile, Taylor sets out to complete the final item on her life skills checklist – teaching Greg to shoot a three-pointer – so that she can attend her senior prom. At the same time, Oliver is sympathetic when a caller at the Teen Help Line confides that no one asked her to prom. (9:00-9:30 p.m.)

I can’t wait! I already have the episodes set up on our DVR so that our kids can watch them when they get home from work. Maybe we’ll have to have a second prom just for them.

ABC was kind enough to send some prom goodies to help us enjoy the magical night. We received some snacks (a tin of popcorn and some Hawaiian Punch). We could “spike” the punch, but we won’t because our son is not yet 21, and I can’t drink alcohol using the medication I’m currently on.

In addition to snacks, I also received a super cool instant camera to take photos that night, a crown (who’ll be crowned the prom king or queen of our prom?), and a sash for the prom king and queen to wear.

I want to dig out one of my dresses from the closet, but, my closet looks like a hoarder situation. Actually, we’re doing things around our home and we have no place to temporarily store things, so stuff (and a lot of it) ended up in the closet. It’s not staying there (thankfully!), but sadly, right now all of my fancy dresses are in the back.

Ugh! Embarrassing!!!

My husband is planning on wearing his suit. He said he’d feel more comfy in sweat pants and a tee shirt, but he’ll do anything for me.

I can’t wait!

I hope that you will accept ABC’s “prom-posal” and tune into The Goldbergs, Schooled and American Housewife so that you can laugh and dance the night away, and relive memories from your prom.

Be sure to follow ABC and the shows on social media.

Three “must see” films from IndieFlix for Education

 

I cannot imagine having to home school a child during this crazy time in our world’s history. My own kids are young adults in their early 20’s. I work with students from 4th – 9th grade in an after school program (back when we had school). It was hard enough getting them to do their daily homework, let alone an entire day’s worth of class work.

I’m impressed by how teachers and schools across the country were able to come up with an online curriculum for students so quickly. From what I have heard from people that work in our school district, the online schooling is working out pretty well.

Many teachers and schools have offered parents a plethora of resources to assist their children with their online classroom learning.

If you are a teacher, or know of one, I’d like to offer another resource – IndieFlix for Education.

IndieFlix for Education offers a film based social emotional learning curriculum that inspires positive action, personal revelation and social change for all ages.

IndieFlix provides social emotional learning experiences that has a long and lasting measurable impact. Their social-impact, film-based programs, and accompanying pre-recorded and live panel discussions, activities, resources, tips and tools provide up to 24 weeks of experiential learning appropriate for ages 10-100. They’ve hosted over ten thousand screening programs in schools, corporations and communities across more than 85 countries.

Some companies that have utilized IndieFlix films include Google, Starbucks, HP, Best Buy, ParentMap, and Microsoft. Some schools that have used their films include Johns Hopkins University, Berkeley, Stanford and the University of Michigan.

I had the opportunity to screen three of their films that are current available – Angst, Like and The Upstanders.

I love documentaries. I always have. I think it’s a wonderful way to learn about things you might not otherwise know about. I also think they help me do well when answering Jeopardy questions (ha ha).

I’m an adult, and I truly enjoyed the three films that I watched. Each one was very “eye opening.” I learned a lot from watching them. I most especially liked the one entitled Like. 

Below are my thoughts about each of the films. I will also include a trailer for each film for your enjoyment.

Angst

 

“Angst” by definition means anxiety or a feeling of dread. I can totally relate to the feeling of anxiety, as I’m sure many people can with what is going on in the world right now (COVID-19).

I suffer from anxiety, but not that bad. It’s more so situational rather than an on going thing. My husband gets anxiety in large crowds. He actually got anxiety so bad once recently that he had a panic attack while grocery shopping (he’s so worried about catching the virus). Our son and daughter also have anxiety. I guess to some degree it could be inherited. Our son’s anxiety used to get so bad he would twist the hair right off of his head.

This film explores what causes people to feel anxiety, what it’s like to feel anxiety, and what can be done to deal with it. Throughout the film you’ll see interviews with children and adults about their anxiety and what they are doing to deal with it.

The film also provides viewers with some tools and resources that can help you if you are dealing with anxiety.

I like that they included people of all ages, and didn’t focus on just one age group. Anxiety knows no age boundaries.

Some people have anxiety that is easily managed, whereas other people suffer from it at a much deeper level.

You don’t have to have anxiety to appreciate this film. Even if you don’t know anyone personally who suffers from anxiety (that you know of), the film provides you great insight into this emotion that could help you better understand someone in the future.

Like

 

Like is the film that I identified the most with. This film was very “eye-opening” to say the least.

In this day and age, most everyone has a smart phone. Let’s face it, a smart phone is an amazing piece of technology. You can use it to help you with directions to your destination. You can instantly connect with family and friends from around the globe. You can watch a movie during your train commute to work in the morning. The benefits of having a smart phone are tremendous…but…there is a downside to technology.

Our daughter is 23 years old and her phone is her lifeline. A few years ago she was grounded, and we took her phone away (we pay for it while she’s in college). SHE HAD A FIT! She was hyperventilating and ranting and raving like a lunatic. It was actually scary how she was acting – over a phone! Since that day, my husband refers to her phone as her life support. Sadly, he’s not far from the truth. That damn phone is stuck to her hand 24/7. She falls asleep with it.

I have to admit that I go on my phone a lot, but I can also put it aside for hours and never glance at it.

I like to use my phone to go on Facebook to connect with my family and friends. I use Instagram and Twitter for my blog, and Pinterest to find craft ideas for my “work kids.” I recently go on Tik Tok because I find some of the videos amusing – basically it’s mindless entertainment.

I use social media for blogging and to connect with people, which is great. It’s a positive thing. But I also know first hand the downside of it all. Here is just one example…

A few years ago I was scrolling on Facebook when I saw photos of my three best friends from my childhood. The three of them went out together to visit a local castle on a small island. They had a fun day together. The problem was I wasn’t with them! They never thought to invite me to go along with them. They were my BEST FRIENDS! One I knew since we were six years old.

That broke my heart. I was so upset and depressed about it for weeks. I unfriended all of them from social media. I figured if they didn’t want to include me, why should I continue to follow them on social media to see more photos of them having fun together?

Sigh…

Another downside is “likes” and comments on social media. It’s hurtful when you post something on Instagram (for example) and get only a few likes, but when I go to other blogger’s accounts, they have hundreds of likes and thousands of more followers than I do.

Social media has a way of making people feel bad about themselves. Smart phones and social media also turn people into mindless zombies that don’t know how to connect with other people in real life. It’s sad to see people on the streets looking at their phones and not each other. Is that the kind of world we should be living in? I don’t think so.

In my family we have a strict no phones at the dinner table policy. Even if we go out to eat, we are not allowed to look at our phones. That is family time.

This documentary takes a look at how this technology and social media has an effect on our lives, as well as the effect is has on our brains. It also makes you aware of the “dark side” to all of it.

The Upstanders 

 

The Upstanders is a film about bullying, especially cyber-bullying. Although a lot is being done is schools to help prevent bullying, cyber-bullying is a whole different beast.

This film features a story about a young man who was being bullied, including cyber-bullied. His family was unaware of how bad it was. It was so bad that the young man saw no other option but to commit suicide.

This film goes into depth about bullying and cyber-bullying among friends, co-workers and others. It also explores the brain science behind it.

The film also discusses programs that are in place to help put an end to this epidemic, and talks about what we/you can do to make a change to stop bullying and cyber-bullying once and for all.

I think this film is important for all students to see in effort to make them aware of how one mean comment can deeply effect another person, and how we all just need to learn to be nice to one another.

Like my mom always said, “If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”

All three of these films are about an hour long.

Screen shot from the film “Like.”

Get by with a little help from your “Friends” – Monica, Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Joey and Chandler

 

With almost everyone under quarantine, I’m sure streaming services and movie purchases/rentals are in high demand. After all, there is not too much we can do from home while being under quarantine and practicing social distancing.

Now is a great time to binge watch that series you’ve been meaning to watch. Better yet, why not binge watch your favorite television series.

Are you a fan of the series Friends? I am. I absolutely love the series, and I watch it in syndication when ever I can. I was so sad when it ended. I wanted to follow the lives of Monica, Ross, Rachel, Joey, Chandler and Phoebe. I wanted to see what happened to them as years went on. I know that they are not real life people, but I felt like they were a part of my family (figuratively speaking of course… I’m not crazy. Ha Ha). I even had the Rachel hair cut years ago (not when it was a fad – many years later).

I rooted for Ross and Rachel to get together. I always thought they would make a great couple, even before THEY realized it.

I never saw the Monica and Chandler relationship coming. They always seemed like total opposites of one another. However, they did make a fun couple.

I LOVED the Rachel and Richard (Tom Selleck) because I loved Tom Selleck on Magnum P.I. 

Speaking of Tom Selleck, Friends has had many A Listers appear on the show. Do you remember the episodes that these celebrities appeared in – Reece Witherspoon, Susan Sarandon, Billy Crystal, Robin Williams, Winona Ryder, Bruce Willis, Danny DeVito, Sean Penn, Brad Pitt, Giovanni Ribisi, Christina Applegate, George Clooney, Noah Wyle, Gabrielle Union, Gary Oldman, Alec Baldwin, Freddy Prinze Jr., John Stamos, Paul Rudd, Charlie Sheen, Julia Roberts, and Ben Stiller? These are not even all the famous faces that have either played a part or made cameos in the series.

Can you recall the episodes they were featured in? I have seen MANY episodes of Friends, but there are some celebrities that I don’t recall. Thankfully I can re-watch the series and catch up on all the episodes I missed with Friends: The Complete Series.

Now you can own Friends: The Complete Series, on digital, Blu-ray and DVD. You get ALL of the seasons and compilation sets of Friends at www.OwnFriendsTV.com.

All seasons are also available to own at all major digital retailers including iTunes, Amazon Prime, VUDU and Google. DVD and Blu-ray sets can be purchased from all major retailers such as Amazon, Walmart and Target. Prices vary by retailer.

By owning Friends: The Complete Series, you can get by with this quarantine with the cast of the show. Instead of fretting over what to do to entertain yourself and your family, why not pop in Friends: The Complete Series, and watch your favorite episodes and/or episodes you might have missed. Best of all you will own the entire series, so you can watch them when it’s convenient for you, or watch them over and over again.

This is a great way to introduce the Friends series to a new generation too. Most of the content is G or PG. There is no sex, violence or foul words. It’s just a bunch of goofy friends having fun with life (for the most part – there are a few dramatic stories here and there).

If purchasing the entire series is not for you, no worries. You can also purchase the individual seasons at www.OwnFriendsTV.com.

Who is YOUR favorite Friends character?

Which is your favorite episode or story line?

I always love to hear from readers. Feel free to comment and share your thoughts.

Stuck at home? Doing some online shopping? Check out TVStoreOnline.net (giveaway ends on 4/12/20)

 

Being stuck at home during this Corona Virus outbreak is not as fun as it sounds. Sure, it’s great to sleep in late and not have to worry about rushing off to work. Its also nice to catch up on movies and TV series you’ve been meaning to watch, and books you have been meaning to read. But after a while, you start to look for other things to for fun.

I don’t know about you, but online shopping is something I do (too often!), that I find fun and entertaining. I especially love to check out new websites. I recently found an awesome website that sells beautiful, trendy, plus size clothing. Needless to say I did some shopping and picked up a few new pieces for my wardrobe.

We’ve been watching a lot of television that past few days. We’re been intentionally seeking out some of our favorite shows on places like Netflix and Hulu.

If you enjoy entertainment as much as my family does, you might want to check out the website TVStoreOnline.com. TVStoreOnline carries a lot of fun apparel, toys, memorabilia, costumes and accessories featuring a lot of today’s favorite television shows and movies.

Is your child a fan of Frozen? Check out the adorable clothing made for the Frozen fan. My favorite is the super cute Olaf backpack.  They also have adult size Frozen shirts.

If you find yourself quoting Al Pacino’s line from the movie Scarface, you might like this cool t-shirt.

TVStoreOnline has products for movies such as Elf, Deadpool, Minions, Star Wars and Alice in Wonderland, to name a few. In addition, they also have products for television shows like Community, Care Bears, Family Guy and Friends, as well as dozens of other television shows and movies.

TVStoreOnline also has a plethora of comic book related products to choose from including Captain America, Avengers and Spiderman. They also have other Marvel, DC Comics and even Peanuts related products available.

I am a plus size lady, and I appreciate the fact that TVStoreOnline has clothing that “I” can wear.

I was asked if I would like to check out some products in person from the website. It was a hard decision since they carry products for a lot of my favorite television shows and movies.

One of my favorite shows is The Big Bang Theory. I am sorry that the series came to an end. Thankfully its still running in syndication, so I can watch it pretty much every night.

I checked out the products available for The Big Bang Theory. I am fond of their “Soft Kitty.” If you are a fan of the show, I’m sure you know what I am referring to. “Soft Kitty” is a special song Shelton’s mom used to sing to him whenever he didn’t feel well.

 

Love it!

TVStoreOnline.com has a few Soft Kitty products including a t-shirt and even a plush toy that plays the song when squeezed.

I chose to review their Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty t-shirt, as well as the singing plush toy.

The shirt comes in sizes S-3XL. I opted for 3XL, because I wanted it to be lose and baggy. I guess I should have gone with 1 or 2 XL because it’s too big on me (I lost weight and I still “see” myself as being bigger than I am). That is perfectly OK because I use it as a sleep shirt.

The shirt is so comfortable! I love it. It washes very well too. I always wash t-shirts inside out so as not to fade the text/image on the front. So far, so good. The shirt looks just as good today as it did the first day I received it.

The shirt is available in black and gray.

I LOVE the Soft Kitty Singing Plush toy.

The toy measures 11” long, 6.5” wide, 4.75” high.

There is a plastic pull tab that must be removed from the voice box if you want it to sing the Soft Kitty song. If you don’t remove it, the song won’t play. The plastic tab is put in there to save the batteries, which are already installed.

What fan of The Big Bang Theory wouldn’t want to cuddle up to Soft Kitty at night, or when they are home sick.

The shirt and plush combined would make an awesome gift for a fan of the television series.
