Monster of the Day #71

Now, that‘s an homage.

  • BeckoningChasm

    Good? Bad? I’m the guy with the comment.

  • John Campbell

    The screencap awoke somethink dark in the internet, something evil.

    It took Sandy. Then it came after BeckoningChasm, it got into his comment and it went bad, so we lopped it off at the reply.

  • Marsden

    I love that movie.

    Shop smart, shop S Mart.

  • Paula J

    Alright you Primitive Screwheads, listen up! You see this? This… is my boomstick!

  • Rock Baker

    I saw Army of Darkness first because a friend of mine kept pestering me to watch it until I fianlly gave in. Needless to say, I loved it. It wasn’t until years later that I finally got to see The Evil Dead. Those two films are indeed very different animals. (I saw the second film as well, but can’t remember much except Ash being grabbed by his reflection.)

    Seeing a gag based on The Manster was wild, completely out of left field. On average, how many viewers do you think would catch this? Maybe the Manster is better known than I always assumed it was.

  • “Maybe the Manster is better known than I always assumed it was.”

    Nope. This was like Tim Burton’s Fiend Without a Face reference in Bettlejuice. It was there for anyone who would get it, otherwise it was just cool eye candy.

  • Rock Baker

    Sort of like watching Animaniacs or Freakazoid.

  • Pip

    It’s a trick. Get an axe.

    (Yes! I got one.)

  • Don’t touch that, please. Your primitive intellect wouldn’t understand blogs, and comments and…things with Internet structures….

  • “Sort of like watching Animaniacs or Freakazoid.”

    Ha, I literally rewatched the first season of Freakazoid two days ago.

  • Tork_110

    Imagine getting out-chinned by yourself. Has Bruce ever been asked to play The Joker?

  • The Rev. D.D.

    You may ask yourself, “Are all Jabootu posters loud-mouthed braggarts?”

    I reply, “Nope. Just me, baby. Just me.”

  • The Rev. D.D.


    I saw this before The Manster, so it was a reverse realization. “Oooohhh….is THAT where they got that from?”

    Ken–Is Freakazoid out on DVD!?! Someone needed to tell me this.

    I admit to being a little leery, as Animaniacs didn’t hold up well to my memory (I later realized I loved the show because of the other cartoons–P&TB, for example). Still, I do recall thinking it was pretty keen.

  • Rev–I just got the second season in today at the library. I’ll probably write up some notes this weekend after I watch that last set. In short, the show isn’t brilliant, but it’s clever. The theme song gives you a taste of the show’s sense of dada humor, and there’s that fantastic Jonny Quest parody.

  • Rock Baker

    Don’t forget the ‘House of Freakazoid’ segment! The lap-dissolve Wolf Man transformation is one of the best bits I’ve seen any of Speilberg’s cartoon shows.

  • I’ll be talking about House of Freakazoid when I briefly review the series.

  • The Rev. D.D.

    Is the Jonny quest parody the one with people stiltedly screaming, “AAAAAAIII-EEEEEEEEE!!!” every time something happens? If so, I will pick up the DVD for that alone, because I’ve been unable for years to remember what cartoon series I’d seen that on. Man I loved that.
