In Double Fine's Happy Action Theatre, the game automatically starts in a "director" mode, which automatically cycles through scenes. This is usually fine, but sometimes I just want to go straight to a particular scene. I've figured out that I can wait till the game starts in director mode, then pause it and manually select the scene I want. The problem is this involves several long load times and I'm impatient. The spotlights that appear during load up appear interactive, but I haven't been able to figure out how to stop the director from being selected. Is there a shortcut to avoid the director mode on start up?

Based on my experience and research, no, the director is not skippable. In the end it's probably better that way, since it makes the game easy to use for kids which I think was a primary intent.
