I initially wrote this comic script using a TV show which I remembered fondly from my childhood*: Mister Ed. For a long time I've been joking that with the recent trend of recycling old TV shows into new movies, it was only a matter of time before they revived the somewhat silly concept of a talking horse embodied in Mister Ed. I figured that this show was too contrived and old to be the subject of a successful movie revival, and so the fitting subject of a joke about that concept.
Only I discovered when double checking that:
They haven't made, or even announced, a remake movie of I Dream of Jeannie yet??
(There is a TV movie, but it wasn't a remake, it was a cast reunion movie, which doesn't count.)
Anyway, thus the TV show in the comic got duly changed.
* It was in reruns even back then. I'm not that old.
