When Linus Met Sally and Other Famous Fictional Couples

VALENTINE'S DAY
You have to be pretty hard-hearted to not get a least a little lump in your thought when you think of some of fictional couples. But have you ever stopped to think just how these crazy lovebirds ever got together? The answers may surprise you.

Linus Van Pelt and Sally Brown
According to the comic strip, Charlie Brown’s sister, Sally was born on May 26, 1959 where Charlie marked the occasion by passing out chocolate cigars to his friends. She grew up quickly. She took her first steps on August 22, 1960 and she fell in love with Linus, Lucy’s brother, on the next day. It was love at first sight, at least on her part. Sally has often referred to Linus as her “Sweet Baboo.” Her dedication to her man seems endless.

This Day in Pop Culture for May 1

Disney's Hollywood Studios Theme Park opened on May 1, 1989.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios Theme Park Opens

On this day in 1989, Disney’s Hollywood Studios (located about as far away from Hollywood as possible) opened its gates for the first time. Originally, this third theme Disney theme park in Orlando, Florida went by the title of Disney-MGM Studios until 2008 when the partnership of the two companies split ways. Though the intent was to feature the works of both studios, the park focused a lot more on Disney with the exception of The Great Movie Ride which celebrated some of MGM's greatest films and just a small nod to Disney. The park is sort of Disney’s answer to Universal Studios. The 135 acre park celebrates Hollywood with designs set in the style of 1930’s and 1940’s art deco. When it opened, some TV shows and movies were actually filmed and a portion of animated movies were created on site. The park is currently going through a major transformation including the removal of the Sorcerer's Hat seen here. New attractions to become a part of the part include Star Wars and Toy Story themed areas.
