Monster of the Day #1017

Oh, it’s a trapdoor spider.

    Hummm….MESA OF LOST WOMEN? I’m going by the kinda ‘observatory’ look to the stairs there.

  • bgbear_rnh

    Honey, there is a spider in the attic, can you kill it for me?

    Women, what would “feminists” do without. . .OH DEAR GOD!

  • Beckoning Chasm

    It looks like the same puppet, but I don’t recall any stairs in MESA. Of course, I recall very little of MESA, except now I have that damned guitar-piano score stuck in my head.

  • Acethepug

    Oh dear. Ceiling Spider is watching you … err, self-gratify (with apologies to Ceiling Cat)

  • Rock Baker

    I think this is from an episode of Ultra Q. To think no US distributor had the smarts to import this show! It’s criminal!

  • The Rev.

    Rock is correct; this is from episode 9, “Baron Spider.” I just watched a bit of this on YouTube. The puppetry I saw is more charming than convincing; as you can see, though, the puppet itself is wonderful. It also makes some unusual gurgling/chattering sounds.

    I saw my first episode of this courtesy of either Sandy or Ken (I think the former) at T-Fest, and I really need to pick up that set ASAP.

    Does this mean another “Ultra Q” week here? It’s either that or giant spiders/bugs. Either way, I’m good!

  • Eric Hinkle

    Wow, that one’s almost as big as the one some biologist recently discovered in the rain forest. Seriously, you need to see a picture of it, it’ll give you nightmares.

  • Marsden

    You need a very large shoe to deal with this one.

  • Ken_Begg

    Sandy showed it, I basically ordered him to buy the set after I watched mine, for obvious reasons. I believe he thought the money well spent.

  • Flangepart

    Hummm…Andre the Giant or Richard Kiel might have a problem with this puppy.
