When I was a kid my best friend had HBO, and I used to sleep over his house a lot. So I saw a lot of pieces of movies that played on HBO in the early 90s that I either thought were fake or now seem like they were dreams.

One of them involved a weird sacrificial scene in which two cops saved a woman who was thrown into a cauldron by a guy dressed liked a horned pagan leader.

In the next scene the cops are at a restaurant and one of them spots the head sacrificer, but he's dressed in a suit and tie. So the cop arrests him.

I thought that I had either imagined the scene or that it was lost to history, but I only recently saw the scene on TV. The film was of course "Dragnet."

Another one was an animated movie, in which a cat wants to be a real girl, and she gets turned into a girl and then gets kidnapped and sauced by some prince who gets her drunk and then ties her to the castle spire.

Now this one I thought was 100% a dream, but I searched online for a LONG time, and finally found that it was a cute little Anime film from the early 80s called "The Fantastic Adventures of Unico." It was created by Osamu Tezuka.
