An old cue brought back on recent episodes?
« on: August 19, 2017, 05:47:45 PM »
You all remember the classic "Bean Stalker" vehicle cue, right? The one that went, "daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa daaaaaaaaaaaaa da da-da-da-da da-da da-da-da-da da-da-da-da da-da da-da-da-da"

A couple months ago, I was watching an episode of the show and they had a truck offered. I heard a cue that sounded like a 2017 remix of "The Bean Stalker." Has anyone else heard this remix? And to anyone who does, where can I find it online?

Not sure if you can find it online, but this remix has been around for a while.

If by "recent," you mean "the beginning of Season 42," then yes, it was brought back recently.

Even longer than that. I've got it showing up in Season 41.

While I'm not 100% on it, given that I was watching almost every show since Season 39 at that point, that is probably the first time that version of the cue was ever used. Definitely felt it was worthy enough to upload given how many of the classic cues had disappeared at that point.

Yes, but only once, and it was in the middle of December.

But how long had the cue been away before they brought it back?

The last time the Classic version of Bean Stalker was played, IIRC ( Before they played the Remix Version the 1st time ) was during the Halloween Show from 2011.

So basically a short break?

I don't remember when they took the Cue out of Rotation. Someone else might know.

They just played it this season during the Throwback Thursday episode of Socially Awesome week.

Not really.  That episode was themed as a '70s disco party and used a bunch of older cues.

OK, unless I'm much mistaken, I believe most of the older cues ('72, '74, '76, '83, '94) were still in use throughout Season 36. When did they pretty much disappear (well, barring the one-offs like the disco party show, Decades Week, etc.)?
