  3. I don't have an answer for #7 (that's a really mystery to me) but this topic reminded me of a children's show I watched as a kid called "The Friendly Giant". Every episode started with a pan through a miniature village until you got to the giant's boot. He would say "Look up...way up!" and the camera would pan to his face. He would invite you to his castle where his giant hand would move some chairs around for his visitors. Once again the camera would pan upwards and the show would start. I recently rediscovered this while on YouTube and had forgotten how instrumental this early PBS show was to my interest in all things fantasy-related.

    Here's a Youtube link for those who might be interested:
