An Interesting Coincidence

I know that Figure It Out used the Legends studio, and I'm fairly sure that What Would You Do? filmed there before Legends . . .

That makes three shows in which the show features a giant head in the same studio.

- WWYD's logo had a giant eyeball, and I seem to recall a giant head being on the Wall of Stuff.
- Legends, obviously, used Olmec.
- FIO used Billy the Answer Head.

Discuss.

Interesting topic. Back in the day, it never seemed that unnatural for a set of TV shows to have giant heads on them. Apparently, it was a theme that children of my generation enjoyed following.
Crazy, but that's how it goes.

This talk reminds me of the beginning of the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland...

I never made the connection of Legends of the Hidden Temple set=Figure it out set. Figure it out seemed so much smaller and Legends seemed like a huge set. What Would You Do? seemed like it had an even smaller set. Of course, I haven't watched What Would You Do? in a while, so I'm thinking about this in my hard-to-visualize-anything brain. I think the soundstage was inside the actual Nickelodeon building?

Sorry RP, but I don't think that there WAS a head on the wall of stuff. (Just doors token slots, and pull chains)

It can all be summed up with a simple equation:

90sKIVA + GDH = BR.

90sKIVA = '90s Kids in Viewing Audience
GDH = Giant Disembodied Head
BR = BIG RATINGS

Stephen Hawking would be proud of me.

You do the math.
