Anyone notice this disturbing detail in DOTT?

George Washington, 200 years later, car thief. 200 years again, dressed in drag.

:eek:

I noticed other characters too, are "reincarnated" in the different time periods.

Am i the last one to see this? Is it more completly obvious then i relieze?

What.. Are you sure? He's wearing a big red skimask. Don't recognize him as the Washington dude.
But you could be right, of course.

About reused characters. Bernard is the clerk in Sam & Max at Snuckeis. (or is it Snuckys)
To think of it, I wonder if there is any Bernard-clerks in Sam and Max 2.
Let us know what other reused characters in DOTT you have found.

I just thought it was LucasArts way of having a bit of fun. I may be wrong, but isn't Ben Franklin the Joke Salesman in the present? I mean, that would be funny to me - Ben Franklin was one of Americas most respected scientists, and his ancestor makes and sells jokes and novelties. Its funny!

Yes! You're right dammit. *smile*
Woh, I never made the connection. No, hey wait, they dont have the same face, but have the same fat body and fat head size.
Sounds like they used the same "skin". or 2D model. But why? Timesave/Easy? Just making fun? I'm glad Orca Wail brought this topic up.

Isn't that guy who tries to shoot himself with a novelty gun the same as the guy who's cold sat next to Thomas Jefferson in the past? I can't remember his name.

Yes. *smile* You're right.
DOTT is a A++ game.

Dwayne
or John Hancock if youre talking about the past character.

(I wonder if theres any future versions of Thomas Jefferson)

(I also wonder who Red Edison's wife was. Maybe the irish maid??)

What about the "Pets" in the future? I haven't played the game in a while, but do any of them look like the other past characters? I'm sure theres a fat one and one that looks like the guy who shoots himself.

Pets? never play, sorry.

Pets, speaking of: the cat comes back, in past and future.

I think Betsy Ross is reincarnated as the fat sleeping guy.
:D
It's been awhile since i've played, actually. I was fooling around with some screenshots i made and noticed.

Also: Anyone notice that the kumquat tree disappears from BERNARD'S world too! (It's next to the toxic waste outlet.) Nice attention to detail!

Yeah, i just checked...he's got the same eyes. And the mask is blue.
The big sleeping guy is a big sleeping competitor in the future. And in a tutu!:D
That's about it, though.

This dude is the same? Hmmm... same joke (sleeping) but not too sure (he's bald in the future)...

Eh.. the Mummy was the same, and the hamster....

I don't think they did it to cut down on animation, because they had to completely reanimate and dress them anyway, I think it was just to be funny. This is why I love DOTT :)
