The boys in pop culture
« on: December 08, 2009, 12:15:39 AM »
Over on The Hardy Boys Wiki, I'm working on an article about The Hardy Boys appearances in pop culture, and I need some help. What I'm looking for are any references to the Hardys in TV, comics, or books. For example, in the last episode of Supernatural, "Abandon All Hope...", a demon mockingly refers to the Winchesters as "the Hardy boys". Have you come across any other references like this?

I like this idea! I think I already told you about the Supernatural Christmas special where they are referred to as the Hardy Boys as well. Hmm...I'll get back to you on this. I'd love to help. :)

I seem to recall that in That 70's Show on the bookshelf in one of the character's bedroom's or living rooms you could see the blue and yellow spines of the Grosset & Dunlap Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books from the 60's and 70's.

In one supernatural episode there was a parody of the opening to The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries.

I saw that the Wiki has been updated! :) I know you can edit it or whatever but I was afraid of ruining it somehow...so I thought I would let you add it if you wanted.

In Season 3's A Very Supernatural Christmas, the Winchesters are in search of the Anti-Santa Claus. However, they soon find themselves at the mercy of two Pagan Gods posing as a nice normal suburban couple.

The male Pagan God says, ?Hardy Boys here make five,? when referring to how many "tributes" they took for the year as sacrifices.

Yeah. Dan, if you answer my question, do it in the "Supernatural" thread in the "TV shows" forum.

There was Nancy Drew reference in Heroes this past Monday. Claire gets called Nancy Drew because she's spying on Samuel. I know it's not HBs but in the same realm at least.

The Hardy Boys have also been parodied in a sketch on "Muppets Tonight". In the Heather Locklear episode (Second Season, airing September 21, 1997), there was a sketch called "The Hardy Pig Boys in "The Mystery of the Zombie Queen of the Amazon Outer Space Jungle Bee-Woman Case (based on a novel by Jane Austen)"
