I liked this teaser too.I 've heard of all the phases, even #5. It's from the '90s.....early '90s.I'll be sure to check out the other teasers ,too(I'm not positive if rough&tumble was in the early, mid, or late nineties, but i know it was in the nineties). So, If my statement is incorrect, consider this my apology in advance.
