The opening of this episode uses "The Mummers" as the show's title, though this is not one of the 15 minute sketches noted above, but a full half hour (minus the commercials) show, which eliminates it as coming from the 1930-36 era. Other sources have placed this episode as the 7th, but with sponsors, so this eliminates the 1936-37 unsponsored shows from Detroit and pushes it into the 1937-47 Olga Coal sponsored decade, which fits. So while an exact air date is impossible to nail down we are reasonably certain "Mystery of the Thing" aired during 1937, marking it as being 77 years old, not to mention one of the rare surviving episodes.

The Island puzzle in The Cave  is all about the  Island Hermit . This old hermit thinks that you are going to be his salvation of the island. What he doesn’t know is that you are just trying to get from one side to the other. Most of the puzzles in this section are straight forward, but can be tricky if you don’t use adventure game logic. Let’s go through all of the steps.

The first thing you should do when you get to  the island puzzle in The Cave  is lay the different pieces of pipe in the correct slots. The straight pipe is the first pipe you will come across. This pipe is right by the beginning starting area of the island. Grab this piece of pipe and head to the underside island to put it in the  straight pipe socket . You will need to push the box from above the water mill to make a step so that you can go to the right side of the island. Once on this side, push the box from the right side coast to make a path to get to the underside of the island.

The  cross pipe  is pretty easy to miss if you are not paying really close attention. There is a waterfall that is spinning a water mill that you already pushed a box off of to get to the right side of the island. On a little platform above the Hermit and the dog there will be the  cross pipe . Take the cross pipe to the underside of the island with that character and place it in the  cross pipe shaped socket .

Caves aren’t just for bats and ancient bones anymore. Although many caves have incredible natural beauty and rich histories, some also have cool things that you’d never expect to find there.


Mega Cavern Bike Park in Louisville, Kentucky, is home to the world’s first underground mountain biking course—and the largest indoor bike park ever built—with something for bikers at all levels. Even expert bikers will be able to maneuver through advanced trails and jumps in caverns with 30-meter-high (90 ft) ceilings. “Think about riding or skiing down a mountain,” says co-owner Jim Lowry, describing the trails. “You don’t go speeding straight down, you go back and forth, over bumps and smooth sections . You are moving fast at some points and more slowly at others.”

Designed by Joe Prisel , a bike park creator for the ESPN X Games, Mega Cavern Bike Park is built in a modular fashion. That way, a lot of the trails can be modified during the year to create new challenges for riders. With a consistent temperature of 16 degrees Celsius (60 °F) underground, bikers no longer have to worry about weather that makes riding dangerous outdoors. There will be a riding school, too.
