For some reason they only kept it for a couple of years. Perhaps there was a rights issue. I liked your Peter Sellers movie "Shot In the Dark" remark. I remember watching the original Pink Panther in a movie theater many moons ago. .

Published: August 14, 2013 at 9:57 PMGreat report, Bryan! Were there One Piece events going on? I noticed Monkey D. Luffy on that Banana Popcorn stand (with Straw Hat theming, no less).
Published: August 15, 2013 at 5:55 PM@ Jeffrey H - Good eyes! Yes, the popcorn stand was One Piece-themed, along with parts of Amity, Jurassic Park and San Francisco (the areas at the back of the park). It's a temporary promotion for the summer. Basically, this amounted to One Piece "wanted" posters in certain places, a couple of restaurants featuring One Piece-themed meals, some sort of sporadic street dance show and lots of merchandise. From my perspective, it seemed that many USJ visitors were most interested in the souvenirs for this limited-time event. Thanks for the question!
