Dr. Horrible Easter Egg hunt on Christmas Eve

Posted on December 27, 2008. Filed under: Dr. Horrible, Joss Whedon, TheHorseySet.Net |

We spent Christmas Eve hunting for Easter eggs. We’d just received our DVD of “Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog.”

(BTW, if you’re thinking of buying one, please do it through the link inside this blog post? Or just click on the link and go buy other stuff instead? It’s my Amazon Associates link. I seem to suck at selling, so if you need something, please shop through me? Now, before I lose what’s left of my dignity, we now return to those Easter eggs.)

We’d watched the movie and the credits only to see different colored type on letters in the credits. My engineer husband called out, “Cool! Easter eggs!”

And thus began the code-cracking. Although we suspected some possible computer keyboarding shenanigans, we (he) used the controls on the DVD remote.

“Easter eggs,” if you’ve never heard the term, are surprises built into the code of a website or some digital media that you can access by tapping a certain sequence of keystrokes.

We used the clues from the credits to no avail. Timing is often important to finding Easter eggs. So, I had an idea.

Someone has to have figured out a bunch of them by now and has posted the solutions.

So, I went a Googling. After all, Dr. Horrible and the Whedons have many tech-savvy fans.

Sure enough we found several at the Whedonesque.org forum. I suspect there could be more. After all, the DVDs only landed into eager hands right before Christmas. That’s not a lot of time for testing theories of Easter egg locations.

BTW, if you’d like to sing along to the songs while in the car, go through my other Horsey Set Net Dr. Horrible post for a CD. (Be sure to enjoy the video of actress Felicia Day being sniped at a games convention.)

As you probably noticed from watching the clips, the songs are catchy tunes. Not unpleasant as earworms, as you can see in the video above. You’ll want to sing along.

See? It’s true. I suck at sales.

Easter eggs? At Christmas? Cute. I’ll have to up my tech-xperience and figure them out.

They’re hard enough to get to when you have the cheats. 🙂 So, Google “Dr. Horrible Easter Eggs” to find them. Accessing some of them takes timing.

[…] When the credits rolled, my husband spotted the different colored letters among the names and said that should be a cue to look for  “Easter eggs.” […]
