If you go to http://www.google.com.au/ you can see it with the magnifying glass and look at various aspects and some of the things move.

I was trying to work out what our one was today - because we have the magnifying glass, I couldn't work out how to click on it to get the description of it. I said ti SLOC that I'd hop on here cos I know that SM is always up to date with them, and there'd be an explanation for it.

I love looking at all the different ones that the countries have, especially ones I have next-to-no-knowledge of, I learn heaps of stuff from them.

Ah thanks! I do my best! Sometimes I do miss one, but rarely (or Misfit beats me to a US one, lol!).

the two puppets look like a cross between Pinocchio, and Pinky and Perky, who were two piglet puppets who were very popular in the UK in the late 60s/early 70s - I had their version of Puff the Magic Dragon and Chim, chimenee as a child!
