Deep Thoughts, my allegedly humorous epigrams -- which have been published in books and broadcast on television -- were originally composed by typewriter on 3x5 cards. Each card is signed on the front and back. I have burned over 2,000 not-good cards in my fireplace. These cards, for better or worse, are among the survivors.
It's Elementary, our dear bidder--props from Robert Wolfe!
I hope you, worthy bidder, enjoy this collection of show-used ELEMENTARY props. ELEMENTARY ran for seven seasons and 154 episodes on CBS from 2012 to 2019. I joined the show in the middle of Season Two and had the great honor of writing 16 episodes over the ensuing 5 ½ seasons. All of us at ELEMENTARY were very proud of our little murder show,and these props are lovely mementos for anyone who’s a fan of the show or has an interest in TV history.
Our Props Department and Art Department were the best in the business, let by Production Designer Andrew Bernard, Art Director Clay Brown, Set Decorator Carrie Stewart, and Property Master Eric Cheripka and their amazing teams. Seeing these lovingly created props and set dressing always reminds me of the incredible amount of skill, craft, and dedication that went into every aspect of the show.
It was a career highlight to work with such incredibly talented artists and to get to write things they brought to life week after week without fail. The collection includes a singlestick with a leather handguard and both a wooden and safety rubberized stick. Sherlock first demonstrated singlestick fighting for Joan in “The Deductionist” (Season One, Episode 14) and they made numerous appearances thereafter.
Also included are telegrams from Moriarty to Joan expressing her admiration. These were featured in “The Deadlier of the Species” (Season Two, Episode 14) and triggered a major shift in Joan’s life path.
The children’s puzzle “Unicorn Utopia” was featured in an episode I wrote, “Once You’ve Ruled out God.” (Season Six, Episode 2) In this episode, Sherlock is trying to overcome debilitating symptoms of Post-Concussion Syndrome and uses thispuzzle as part of his therapy.
Rounding out the collection are two dustjackets for Joan Watson’s “The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes,”various business cards,and blank checks for Sherlock as well as cards for Detective Bell.
I’d contend, with a complete lack of humility, that ELEMENTARY is one of the best American network mystery show ever made, from start to finish. We came up with seven seasons of intricate puzzles and compelling characters, all embodied and elevated by our wonderful cast and crew, and in the process told more Holmes stories than even Sir Arthur himself. It’s worth noting that Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu portrayed Holmes and Watson for more hours than any other onscreen incarnations, which means you now possess items handled onscreen by the definitive Holmes and Watson. May they bring you much joy.
All my best,
Robert Hewitt Wolfe
Simpsons limited edition "Beatles" cel from Ian Maxtone-Graham!
This is a very limited edition cel, one of a very few custom-made and given to the writing staff by showrunner Al Jean in 2004.There are many things I love about it:
1) This is a perfect reference/joke: like The Beatles, The Simpsons characters changed their look over time, and this cel perfectly matches the two famous Beatles compilation albums released on April 2, 1973.
2) The Simpsons and The Beatles are both worldwide phenomena, loved by billions for decades.
3) This cel also reminds me of the seventeen wonderful years I spent at The Simpsons, and the lifelong friendships I made with Al, the other producers and writers, and the cast.
I have been a Beatles fan all my life, and I was lucky enough to meet and work with Paul McCartney when he was a musical guest at Saturday Night Live. He participated in a sketch I helped write, an episode of the “Chris Farley Show,” and also did a quick cameo in a song I co-wrote with Adam Sandler, “Red-Hooded Sweatshirt.” Unsurprisingly, he was delightful to work with.
So this cel means a lot to me, but this strike seems like a perfect time to let someone else enjoy owning it, and also to raise some money for people affected by the strike. I believe strongly in the demands of the Guild, but I also know that strikes can create hardships for many, and I am happy to do what I can to alleviate those, even in a small way. Please bid early, bid often, and let’s get that number up there in the hundreds of millions, IE commensurate with CEO salaries.
The Halt and Catch Fire prop from Christopher Cantwell (sold on Twitter) that inspired our auction!
I’d been able to snag the Speak & Spell at the end of Halt’s production. It was important to me because within it, story-wise, was the true nature of one of our main characters who otherwise might’ve been just written off as a generic housewife. But instead in the pilot episode she opens the toy and solders connections on its PCB when it breaks, fixing it for her daughters like it’s changing out batteries. She’s an engineer. She’s more.Herein lied the secret of the character and even the series; that the characters and this series we made were more than what they seemed. Since the end of the show, though, this toy has sat harmlessly and inert on an endtable in our guest room. Sure, it was cool to look at and remember what we did. But then this strike happens. And the writer is devalued. And I’m looking around in our house, helpless. And I think of the strain this strike will cause everyone from above the line to below it. And I think about union solidarity. WGA, DGA, IATSE, TAG, LiUNA, Teamsters and so on. How we are fighting to be seen as more than what we seem. Just documents typed or numbers on a call sheet. Line items. We are so much more.So I decided to donate the Speak n’ Spell and try to raise a modicum of money for everyone who is more than what they seem. And also as a way to tap into how truly special what we all do is. I’m not even sure the Speak n’ Spell works. But now the Community Fund has $2,300 to help further perpetuate the magic of artists and the strength of unions, even if my guest room end table is now a little more empty. It’s worth it. We’re worth it.
