Hanna I wonder if Rankin/Bass were sued for calling their villian Dr Who in this film. The Rev. Poor Gorosaurus. I was happy to see him positively contribute to the fight against King Ghidorah in DAM. Is he the MotD, since you’ve done Kong, or is it this version of Kong? I guess I hope it’s Toho Kong, since Gorosaurus should at least get a picture of himself on his feet, or kangaroo kicking KG or something, not a shot of him at his lowest point. Ericb “I wonder if Rankin/Bass were sued for calling their villian Dr Who in this film.” They spell it Doctor Hu. roger h no Doc, you got me, I’ll go, no, not the jaw thing, nooo…aaah…ugh…gurgle…gasp. Ericb Slightly off topic but I thought some might enjoy the following article: The Science of Godzilla http://scienceblogs.com/tetrapodzoology/2010/11/science_of_godzilla_2010.php Rock Baker Didn’t the pressbook spell it Dr. Who? I think the character was one of the carry-overs from the cartoon series. I could never understand why the other monsters/props/effects looked fantastic and Kong looks like a halloween costume. If not for Kong’s moth-eaten, mindless look, King Kong Escapes would be just about the perfect movie! (And he looks a lot better in the photo than he did in the movie!) roger h As Rock said, Kong doesn’t look very good and I never knew the Rankin-Bass connection (probably because they cut out the kid). So, I put the two thoughts together. Eureka! They recycled Bumble from the Rudolph special! Have you ever seen them photographed together? Ken Begg Were I Bumble I would take severe exception to that. Bruce Probst Just thought I’d mention this in passing … there’s got to be a new SyFy movie here, right? http://www.theage.com.au/national/scientists-give-flying-frog-a-bad-name-20110106-19hpl.html roger h Ken said: “Were I Bumble I would take severe exception to that.” has Ken B, Bumble, and Kong ever been photographed together? Was it photoshopped? The Rev. Ken is not nearly hairy enough to be the Bumble or Kong. Of course, he could just be carefully dilapilating himself before appearances… zombiewhacker At least Kong’s costume here is better than it was in KKvG. Rock Baker Yes, that’s true, but it doesn’t answer the question of why everything ELSE looks spectacular while Kong looks like… this.
