    It's a Martin. Style O, I think, but possibly a Style 1. I couldn't see the "diagnostic feature" (a Style 1 and 2 would have double dot position marker at the 7th fret, but a Style O would just have a single dot there).

    I watched an old episode of Boy Meets World and Cory played an ukulele. Well, he didn't really play it. He just plucked the strings a bit. But he mentions the uke, so it counts. The ukulele was in the show

    in the movie get him to the greek (summer movie of '11) they begin a scene with aldous snow finishing a song with his father. aldous was playing a ukulele and the father a guitar. the dialogue that follows, aldous is clearly seen holding a ukulele.

    I just found a copy of "Stanley's Gig" yesterday on ebay for $2.99!!! and promptly ordered it. Recommended to anyone who likes to try and write songs. HIGHLY recommended to ALL ukulele geeks!!!! (yep, that's you I'm talkin' to bro & sis'). Lovely film with a nice helping of cheese.

    In the UK show, "Fireman Sam", Trevor plays a Ukulele a few times, one time he forgets the food for the camping trip, but remembers his Ukulele...that guy has his priorities right!

    In Ramona and Beezus, in the Music Class scene, they have a wall full of colorful Sopranos, I think they were Mahalos.
