Intro Differences

  • On the TV, a tribute to the theme's composer Ralph Carney, who died December 16, 2017, can be seen.
  • The kaleidoscope scene is replaced with BoJack moving through the set of Philbert dressed as the character. The set looks almost exactly like BoJack's house.
  • During the party scene, an Excess Hollywoo segment about Philbert can be seen on the TV, and Pickles is standing next to the TV instead of Katrina.
