Monster of the Day #1647

So there’s a giant spider in Africa (being filmed by an Erich Von Strohiem-esque director) whose attacking natives who are very stereotypical except that they are…white? To keep from being ‘racist’ maybe? I don’t know.

Of course, Spider-Woman and Spider-Man make their way to Africa (and then Paris) because it’s their idiom, don’t you know. Spiders and all.

Oh, and to an utter lack of surprise of any five year-old watching, the spider turns out to be a robot.

    The first one looks like Mr. Moto.

    The spider in frame one wears glasses because someone stole his other six eyes. By the way, the show last week where the Super Friends met Dracula featured a giant spider. It was the very definition of “gratuitous.”

    Okay, this one is just plain weird.

    “George of the Jungle” made the best use of “white” natives in the jungle.

    Ooh, I’ll give you such a pinch

  • You can tell the Robot Spider is an actor. He’s clearly doing the graveyard scene from Hamlet using the car as a stand in for Yorick’s Skull.

    Alas, poor Mystery Machine, I knew him, Scooby.
