In-Show Props

In-Show Props

Whenever I see a character holding a prop in a TV show, it always makes me wonder things like: Where is that prop now? Who had the fun of creating it? How much of the item was created and how much is just dummy text? When it's a photo of a character younger, I wonder if it's one of the actor younger. Here are some screencaps of that sort of prop.

I like the in-joke of having names of the crew on the fronts.

Sorry they're VHS caps – the German DVD doesn't have the end credits.
