    Was watching Superman on the bankholiday on my telly as I have no CRT pj yet. Noticed that Lex Luthor had a CRT pj in his lair when he was watching the progress of his misiles and the like! It looked something like a Sony VPH-10** but I don't know when they were first around?

    Anyone else spot any CRT pjs in film?

    That Lex Luthor he may be evil but he knows what's good :)

    I spotted another one recently in a cartoon series. In the 10th episode of Card Captor Sakura (a Japanese childrens show) you briefly get to see that Sakuras best friend has a CRT projector (well you see the three glowing colours of the tubes). I couln't tell you any more than that as a) it's fictional, so probably not a real projector, b) you can't see much as they are watching in a darkened room (sensible lass).

    What sort of motive is there for such detail in a cartoon, afterall how many people would notice that?? Perhaps CRT pjs are more common in Japanese homes!

    My only guess is character based, in the series the girl who owns the CRT comes from a very rich family who enjoys making movies of the heroine of the series, thus having top end video gear is not out of the question.

    Or maybe one of the writers/animators is a big CRT fan :)

    Both valid reasons and probably both true. Good work! :)
