  • So this question is looking for the first appearance of the trope in literature, and the question on M&TV is looking for the first appearance of the trope in movies and TV? – Null Jun 9 '16 at 14:16
  • @Null - Yes. Precisely. Should I specify the movies and tv in the other question? – Malady Jun 9 '16 at 14:18
  • I don't think that's necessary since you'll get an answer specific to movies and TV on the M&TV site. I just wanted to clarify your question on this site. Please be more careful with your questions in the future, since you invalidated an answer when you clarified this one. – Null Jun 9 '16 at 14:23

    @Null - True... But, that answer would have at least been valid for M&TV if it dealt with Halloween 'stead of Mardi Gras. ... But your point stands. – Malady Jun 9 '16 at 14:38
