Background stuffs in sitcoms that bother you

This has bugged me for decades.

There's this painting in Three's Company that's right above the telephone. I can't make out what that is.

It's the bluish one that looks like a giant girl looking down on a side view of a granny in a rocking chair.

Other times it looks like blue flowers and sometimes it looks like a dog. What the heck is it?



Also, who's bother by that grandfather clock in Charlie's in Charge that always shows noon or midnight. Can't they just move the needles occasionally just so it look like it's working?

Groucho, you're too fast. You must have posted 1 second after I posted before I had a chance to correct the mistake.

I corrected it .

Next time "Three's Company" on Nick I'll take a gander at that painting.

Yeah that's the one. Now it looks like the three musketeers about to attack granny.

So what is it ?

You still can't tell?

Here's a much clearer image...



I have no idea what it is either...

I think it looks a lot like Madame TrashHeap from Fraggle Rock this time. The last image did look a little like a watercolour painting of the three musketeers - but my current guess would have to be: Lion Attacking Nun

I guess Jennifer Runyon and Nicole Eggert never spent much time near that grandfather clock, because I never noticed it...
