Monster of the Day #1039

Somebody, call Kona!

    See, the guys fight, the girls panic….predictable.
    Okay, the creep in the show is hugging his brief case, and the kid hugs his dog…Where was I?

  • GalaxyJane

    My first metal lunchbox was the King Kong remake. I was doomed, even then to be an acolyte of Jabootu.

    It may be a false memory but, I think I had this one. I was around the right time when I was in early elementary school and young enough to not have a more mature brown bag.

  • Beckoning Chasm

    I had a show-themed lunchbox, but it wasn’t an Irwin Allen show. I guess I had better taste back then.

  • bgbear_rnh

    I contrast to “Lost in Space” and “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea”, this show actually had scary moments and the twist to make the giants’ planet an Eastern European- like police state was a nice touch.

    Dog’s worst nightmare.

    They should sic the tiny little dog on it. While it was laughing, they could make a run for it.

  • I don’t think I’ve ever sat through a full episode of this. Not sure what that says about me.

  • Hopefully ME-TV will start including this on their Saturday night lineup.

  • Flangepart

    The fact the alien planet was filled with human(oids) bugged me. Noooo, can’t use interesting aliens….just more people with costumes from the stock costume department.

  • bgbear_rnh

    True, when I walk down the street and I see a guy 60 feet tall, I think what a dull person he must be. ;)

    I’ll admit to missing the time of awesome lunchboxes.

  • Beckoning Chasm

    You can probably still get lunchboxes with Hello Kitty, Star Wars or Transformers on them, but those are mass appeal things that the lunchbox men know they can sell. I do think we’ve lost something in our culture that we no longer make lunchboxes with a smaller audience “just because.”

  • bgbear_rnh

    I am so old, that my first lunch box had a glass lined thermos. Sooner or later kids always broke them. The hinge on the box usually wore out as well before the end of the school year.

    Most of mine were used to begin with, Goodwill or Salvation Army. I think I got a new one maybe twice. Oh the decisions on what to pick.

  • Flangepart

    Just don’t ask them about the weather up there. They tend to wanna squish.

  • bgbear_rnh

    You do kind of wonder what would lead to there existing another planet where the inhabitants are completely human except for size.
    Maybe an “Ark” was built to preserve the giant planet’s species from complete annihilation and, everything was shrunk down to save weight. All went according to plan accept the total kaboom of the home planet. Loss of technological advance and such but, the planet and most life remained intact.

    There were giants in the earth in those days Genesis 6:4

  • Eric Hinkle

    Maybe these are the same giants who sent a ship to Earth in the original ‘Attack of the 50 Foot Woman’?

  • Rodford Smith

    Weren’t they supposed to have passed through some sort of dimensional gateway to an alternate universe? Been a long time since I saw any of the show, and I missed many of the episodes, including the pilot.
