Not unless you are paying very close attention. But here, for your edification, is the thread that started the clock-and-globe silliness on this forum: The FOL Season 1 Props/Sets/Décor Discussion Thread, started by '80sSitcoms, where we learn the "facts" about the props used on the show, through '80s' carefully captured screenshots.

Just take a shot every time you see a globe during the first four seasons. Take an additional shot every time you see one of the two grandfather clocks photobombing themselves into scenes. You will be too drunk to remember the episodes in no time!

OMG how do you all notice these things?!

You must have seen those episodes dozens of times to notice so many of those details! Now i'll be looking at all these things myself when the show cycles back around again.

Oh, we've seen the episodes a few times...

And discussing them with others had led us to watch them again, noticing new details. It takes a village to raise a child... and it takes a forum of interested viewers to figure out if the payphone, paintings, sombrero, and stuffed tiger from Season One made the transition to Season Two, when so many other props were so unfairly made victims of the Prop Purge.

Mr. Parker had the best working chemistry with Charlotte for sure. They seemed more comfortable with each other and natural. Mr. Bradley is alright but I would have liked to have seen more friction between Mrs. Garrett and "The Crock". She would have ruffled his feathers a lot which would have been amusing to watch.

Yes, you're right: it would have been really funny to have more interactions/frictions between MRS G and THE CROCK ha ha ha! Sadly, he was gone after the pilot 'The girls school' to never be seen again...

Oh No SEASON 9

Mr. Bradley was my favorite of Eastland's headmasters. He was a jerk in many episodes, but he did prove his love for the girls on several occasions.



That was Mr. Harris. The one with the "toup".



Mr. Parker was my second-favorite. I hated to see him depart from the show without any notice. He could be a jerk, too, but you could also tell he cared for Eastland and its students.

But where is Mr. Morehead on your list? He was the Eastland headmaster in Season 9.

Sorry retro but i had stopped watching FOL by season 7 (i only watched a few episodes from season 7 to 9 on YouTube) so i have never heard of any headmaster on season 9, and by the way: hadn't all girls graduated form Eastland by then?
