I have been watching this show for 35 years and I have never noticed this until today, that there is a symbol of the cross on the back of the bus. It is on the driver side under the tail light. I think someone might have brought this up before on here at one point or another. Any ideas if this is intentional or just a coincidence? Found it very interesting.

Man, hope I don't work for a crime lab huh?

Mike, I am completely blown away by your post; I too just noticed that same thing last night!

I've watched the show since I was a little kid, taped the show over and over on vhs, had been watching the dvd since it came out- and never, ever noticed what looks like a cross near the driver's side rear tail light- until just last night. I thought about it a bit, then dropped it. Logged on and Whammo! Saw your post.

This is just so freaky- but I'm trying to not make it into something more than it probably really is. Then again... :-0

Since you both just noticed -- I know I never have! -- is there one particular episode to refer to where it really stands out?? Thanks for the heads up! Very Happy

I noticed it on the opening credits, (after season one) when the bus drives away from the camera, you can see it....check it out.

Come on, guys, don't read too much into it. It's just part of the paint job! Wink It would be cool, though, to track down the people who actually did the painting to see if there was a definate plan, or were told to "Mondrianize it!".

Yeah, I'm with Panther -- I think it's just coincidence more than anything.

I don't get it. What does it matter if it was a coincidence or intentional. You've got to believe in something or you'll fall for anything.

I don't care, well I do....you know what I mean. I just love that old thing.
Wish I had a chance to ride on it. On it? In it? Confused By the way has anyone noticed my "location" and the lisence plate on the bus? I have had a few people ask me.....

Well I love the bus too. I also think anyone / everyone is free to interpret this and anything else however they want. For me, this is essentially the Jesus on a grilled cheese sandwich phenomenon Smile

I think that whichever Partridge kid was responsible for painting that part of the bus got distracted and didn't finish the job. Smile

I was watching the episode with Holly Near, when Keith runs for student body president. At the end of having a talk with Shirley about quitting, Keith opens the door and leaves her bedroom. If you look at the wall behind, it doesn't look as though anyone made an effort to paint it like the hallway. It looks like a backstage panel or brick or something--I'm not sure what.
