  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Imagination Movers (2008) is a television show on Disney Junior. The show is made up of four guys who were friends and decided to make a band together. They began their show to give kids examples of good adult men on television. The show originated in New Orleans on public access television before being picked up by Disney. The guys are still very active in New Orleans in the parenting community and helping to repair the damage after Hurricane Katrina. Members of the band were directly affected by Katrina right before they began production on their Disney show.

It might be easy to assume this is just another casted Disney show, but they are seriously awesome guys. One of them is a freaking firefighter in real life! Smitty was a firefighter, Scott was a teacher, Rich was a journalist and Dave was an architect on the design team for the New Orleans Saints. These are some seriously awesome dudes.


Tropes used in Imagination Movers include:
  • Bag of Holding: Dave's hat sure can hold a lot...
  • Bigger on the Inside: Hell yes. This is played Up to Eleven with the rooms.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Knit Knots. He was a regular character in Season 1, but suddenly disappeared in seasons 2 and 3 (not counting his appearance in the "Imagination Movers In Concert" special).
  • Crazy Prepared: The Imagination Warehouse has a room for everything.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Warehouse Mouse has his own series of shorts.
  • Mr. Fanservice: I think moms enjoy this show as much as their kids do. There's a Mover for everyone! Rich is your typical pretty guy. Dave's the handy man who can solve all of your problems. Smitty's smart and adorable. Scott's a big, cuddly teddy bear.
  • Five-Man Band: Rich is The Hero, Dave is The Lancer, Smitty is The Smart Guy with his notebook that knows everything, Scott is The Big Guy, and Nina is The Chick.
  • Genki Girl: Nina, in spades. On the other hand, you can also make a case for the Movers being a group (mostly) comprised of Keets, especially Scott. Hilarity Ensues when they're placed opposite of Nina's dull and dreary uncle Knit Knots, whose idea of a birthday party is equally drab music (instead of a traditional Happy Birthday song), eating a loaf of bread (as opposed to cake), and doing office work (in place of opening presents).
  • Goggles Do Something Unusual: Scott's "Wobble Goggles", which allow him to see things from a variety of hypothetical perspectives.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
  • Once an Episode: The "Brainstorming" song.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Nina!!"
  • Serious Business: "Baker Ben, the world needs your muffins."
  • Shout-Out:
    • In "Knight Time," Sir Fearsalot and the Movers don't have horses — only coconuts.
    • One of their albums is titled "For Those About To Hop". Another is "Juice Box Heroes".
  • Running Gag: Poor Dave has only landed one high five.
  • Team Pet: Warehouse Mouse, this mouse gets actual storylines.
  • The Danza: All of the Movers.
  • Theme Tune Roll Call: Smitty's my friend he's playing his guitar! Scott's got his goggles that help him see far. Dave's over there underneath the red [1] hat! My name is Rich, I go a rat-a-tat-tat!
