Monster of the Day #1467

We didn’t do much with Thundarr, so let’s go back to him. Again, it’s got to be tough to come up with fun designs for the incidental monsters that popped up every episode for a minute or two. A horned whale/shark is pretty neat, though.

  • Gamera977

    I hate to be crude but I can’t help myself…

    ‘Oh no! Someone gave the sperm whale Viagra and now he’s all horny!!!’

  • One of the first things I do every morning is check out this site, full of hope and eager to make a bad joke/glorious pun. I come today, see that picture, and go “Oh ho ho!” I scroll down, certain of victory, only to met crushing, horrible defeat.

    Eighteen lousy minutes.


  • KeithB

    He even comes with a periscope.

  • Eric Hinkle

    I was wondering if I was alone in noticing that rather unusual attachment.

  • Flangepart

    What? (Checks it out) D’OH!…Hummm…Mayhaps he ate the remains of a nuke sub and got a useful addition to the ‘skulking’ app?

  • Joliet Jake Blues

    I assume that he roars at least once?

  • Ken_Begg

    Again, exactly how we all felt when Matthew unleashed his “A Flat Miner” joke at T-Fest.

  • Eric Hinkle

    I also rather enjoy those big bushy eyebrows he has. Or whatever that is right above his eye.

  • Acethepug

    Not only does he roar, but I believe he shoots fire from his periscope! (if I am remembering right)

  • Gamera977


  • Eric Hinkle

    So, not a periscope, but a flamethrower!

  • The Rev.

    Okay, Ken? Next time we get together, I need to see this episode. Thanks.

  • BobTanaka

    This early ‘hardcore’ design of Monstro the Whale was rejected by Walt Disney.

  • Ken_Begg

    Well, Arthur’s girls loved the show so much I sent Sandy a copy of the set. He didn’t seem that thrilled, though.

  • Eric Hinkle

    This is OT Mister Begg, but am I wrong or did you once have a review covering the second Jurassic Park movie on the site? I just looked for it and couldn’t find it.

  • Eric Hinkle

    Never mind, found it. And it’s still more entertaining than watching the actual movie.

  • Ken_Begg

    Wow, talk about damning with faint praise!

  • The Rev.

    He showed us Daniel the Wizard and once said Rebirth of Mothra III wasn’t quite as awful as most made it out to be. He deserves everything he gets.

    Although how anyone can fail to be thrilled by “Thundarr” is beyond me.
