Did you know that we are certain that YY Flirch was hit by at least 3 fast passenger trains. We know this from scripts and existing audio episodes. That is, roughly 20% of the episodes.
Is it possible that Flirch was hit an additional 10 to 12+ times? It is very possible.
Bill Idelson remarked in an audio interview that Flirch was "always getting hit with fast passenger trains."
This is one of the many plots/subplots that permeate the show, like Sade's muddled money or Vic trying to sneak in a cowboy hat or letters from Bess, etc. It just so happens that Flirch getting hit by trains is only a small part of the episodes we have.
You ever wonder what kind of jobs Hank Gutstop got along the way that we don't know about? Zookeeper, anyone?
Another thing: we already knew from scripts and script pieces that Mis' Donahue had a SMALL/YOUNG daughter in the 1930's. I was reminded of this because she was mentioned in the script I uploaded earlier today. Where did she go?
If you can think of other questions without an answer, pleease leave a comment or drop me a line.
