Dimitri's Page, dedicated to America's favorite stuffed sheep!
#7, October 1990
A new season is upon
us, and so we'll get the chance to see more of our favorite stuffed sheep!
So far it seems his appearances this season will be limited, but do keep an eye
on the bookcase just above and to the right of where Dimitri usually sits.
The guys now have a photograph of Dimitri there.
Which brings us to
the topic of this Dimitri's page. Dimitri is such a memorable actor, he
doesn't even have to appear in an episode to get attention! Every
once in a while his likeness or name is featured in a show where Dimitri does
not appear in the wool.
Most notable for
this type of reference was the photograph of Dimitri above Balki's excutive
office desk in the episode He's the Boss from last season. The
framed picture was so large it was impossible to miss!
When Larry took an
assertive training course, he came home determined to pass on the helpful hints
he'd learned to Balki. To do so, he put Balki through an exercise where
Balki must imagine a cantaloupe is the raise he wants and he must cross the room
to take it, no matter what! As Balki makes his way across the room, Larry
throws some hypothetical situations his way, one of which was the statement,
"Don't step on Dimitri!", even though Dimitri was nowhere underfoot.
conversation with the Chronicle's Sunday magazine editor, Olivia Crawford, Balki
answers the question of whether or not he gets homesick for Mypos by explaining
some of the things he'd brought with him from there. The first thing he
mentions is Dimitri, proving just how much Dimitri really means to Balki.
It's nice to see
them remember Dimitri in the episodes where he doesn't appear, but we would
still prefer to see Dimitri himself in bigger and better roles! (Could a
spin-off be out of the question? Sheep Matters? Hmmmmmm).
