Monster of the Day #59

In the end, what’s scarier than a horny gorilla?

  • Gamera

    So how are you going to get out of this one Mister Price Line Negotator? Maybe you should have warned travelers about the civil war, meddling Klingons, and yes the rampaging Mugato.

  • BeckoningChasm

    I love how everyone calls it the “Mugato,” but in the credits it’s called a “Gumato.”

    Also, this thing has a terrifying scream.

  • The Rev. D.D.

  • “BOO!”

    Then my job here is done!

  • TongoRad

    I love how everyone calls it the “Mugato,” but in the credits it’s called a “Gumato.”

    That is most definitely the fault of the ‘scpipt supervisor’.

  • John Nowak

    Are you watching, Mr. Tucker? This is how you use a gorilla suit in your movie.

  • What’s scarier than a horny gorilla? A gorilla with a helmet on his head, of course.

    Everyone knows that.

  • zombiewhacker

    Speaking of horny: Nancy Kovack as Nona.


  • Rock Baker

    I think Bill Rebane may’ve based his Bigfoot off this guy.

    Wow, its been a long time since I’ve seen this episode! Pop has most of them, but he’s missing like nine episodes. This must be one of them, because I don’t remember running across it last time I borrowed his tapes.

  • Gamera

    I suppose everyone already knows this but in case anyone did miss it CBS put all the original episodes on the their website where with a few commercials added you can watch them for free.

    A Private Little War:

  • Hey… the whole “Mugato/Gumato” kerfuffle reminds me of Alfred Molina’s character from Raiders of the Lost Ark; Indiana Jones calls him “Sepito”, but everywhere else (including the trading cards I still have) his name was parsed “Setipo”.

  • Marsden

    Here’s a silly bit of trivia: When they showed the footprints of this particular creature they pulled a scene from an episode from the previous season that depicted the footprints of a giant speaking rabbit (as in Alice in Wonderland) so this and the giant rabbit have the same footprints. Gotta love cost cutting.

    It amazes me no end how some people can make such good stories with little budget while others have huge budgets and they make crap.

  • I hope you have a great day!
