Sam and Max Cameos!

posted by Venom on - last edited - Viewed by 1.2K users

Sorry if this has been posted about before.

I was sitting around, idly watching some cartoons, when low and behold, I see SAM AND MAX in the background! It is in an episode of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends on Cartoon Network, the one where Bloo throws a 'wild house party', I believe the episode is even called 'House Party'.

They are about 4 minutes into it, when Bloo is walking through the crowd and greets an upside down friend "How's it hanging, Hangy?" You can clearly see our favorite rabbit and dog in the background drinking punch.

I was really excited about this for some reason, and it got me wondering if people knew other cool cameos of the dynamic duo (I know about the Jedi Knights one, and the map that was in the shape of Max's head.):D

  • Here is a list of their video game cameos I just found on Wiki :D (Have yet to seen them say anything about the Fosters one I listed)

    @Wiki said: * Another game by LucasArts, Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire, featured collectible items called Challenge Points. Most of the points were in the shape of the Rebel Alliance's logo, although one of them, located on the 6th level just outside Mos Eisley, was shaped like Max's head.
    * Star Wars: Dark Forces, by LucasArts, contained a level map with a secret room made to appear like Max's head on the automap.
    * Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, by LucasArts, featured a hostile 3D model of Max in a hidden room.
    * Full Throttle by LucasArts, featured a Max's head drawn on a wall during a demolition derby.
    * Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure by Lucasfilm Games (now LucasArts), featured a wood totem of Sam & Max at Dr. Jones office.
    * In Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis Max can be seen in a shadow play. Play the Team Path, visit the Hotel in Monte Carlo, switch off the light and use the flashlight.
    * Day of the Tentacle featured a painting of Max in the inn back in the past.
    * Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds featured a level with a clearing of trees shaped like Max's head.
    * Torin's Passage, a 1995 adventure game by Sierra On-Line, featured two skunks named Sam and Max.
    * Steve Purcell worked as a background artist and animator on the first and second Monkey Island games. Sam & Max make guest appearances in all four Monkey Island games.
    o In The Secret of Monkey Island there is an idol near the Giant Monkey Head that looks unmistakably like Sam & Max.
    o In Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge, the costume shop on Booty Island features a pair of Sam & Max costumes; however, both costumes are too expensive for the protagonist, Guybrush Threepwood, to rent.
    o Curse of Monkey Island, features a shape of Max's head in a lightshow on Plunder Island, at the stage. There is also a sign in the carnival referencing to Trixie the Giraffe-Necked Girl, one of the characters in Sam & Max.
    o In Escape from Monkey Island, Sam N. Max is one of the potential aliases for Pegnose Pete.
    o Curse of Monkey Island, also features a portrait of Max the Barbery Coast, hidden behind Edward Van Helgen.
    * In Outlaws, a western first person shooter game by LucasArts, one of the additional missions contains a secret area which hides Max, who wields two pistols and shoots at the player. Killing Max plays an audio insult.

  • I just watched this episode, specifically the part you mentioned, and I don't see them.

  • Well I saw a low res clip of it and I spotted a white rabbity thing but couldn't see Sam. If I come up with anything else I'll report in.

    I see a rabbit - it looks more like a peep than Max though. :p I don't see anything resembling a dog.

    Unless I'm missing something. Am I looking at the right scene?

  • Is that Sam in the bottom left corner?

  • I see the rabbit, but the thing in the bottom left looks more like a Saskewatch then Sam. :/

  • I think he means the rabbit and the thing a little to the right from top center. If you stare at it long enough, it looks like Sam. But I doubt it was intentional.

  • I just played Indiana Jones: the last crusade, and I found that totempole with S&M, but how can that be. This game was made in 1990, and hit the road in 1993:confused:
    I'm confused...

    Steve Purcell worked at LucasArts even BEFORE "Hit the Road" was made... he did several graphics for the earlier games and even painted the box-art for the first two "Monkey Island"-games!

    Sam & Max have existed as characters since the 70s, and were first published in a comic book in 1987, so they pre-date Indy by a bit.
