Ericb Actually I think it looks pretty cool, like an image taken from a late 19th Century Post-Impressionist paining. KeithB Which, of course, is essentially what it was. Nice that they managed to get the eye painted correctly! Gamera Hey Pinky! Where are Blinky, Inky, and Clyde? If Pac-Man was inspired by a pizza with a slice missing were the ghosts inspired by Johnnie Quest? Never thought about it till now but dang other than having two eyes and a mouth they look alot alike to me. roger h “We’re a little short on the character design budget this week, how about something simple” John M. Hanna Saved the best for Friday. If they make a ‘Johhny Quest’ movie, they better have the invisible monster in it. Tork_110 Gesundheit. Rock Baker Seems like Dr. Quest was either involved in 007/Indiana Jones type adventures, or he was facing terrors right out of 50s monster movies. This was a terrific episode, and the creature had a nice ghostly wail that really sold the sequences where it was moving through the jungle, unseen but leaving a trail of destruction behind. This one would’ve made a great movie. The monster itself sort of resembles the creatures in It Came From Outer Space. And, oddly, that spooky cry recalls the other-worldly sounds made by The Crawling Eye! Sandy Petersen This was the very first Jonny Quest I ever saw and it really impressed me. You may say the monster is “simple”, but to me it looked unformed and terrifying. I was wowed. And it could howl. BeckoningChasm This episode scared me as a kid, but I seem to remember being puzzled that the invisible monster left footprints, yet seemed to have no feet when revealed. Was that the case or am I misremembering? Rock Baker It left craters behind, and seemed to have two feet and a wide stride (or else it would just discharge energy into the ground every few feet). I always assumed that the feet didn’t get covered in paint, although if the feet are UNDER the form that is covered in paint, there’s no way it would have such a wide stride. Let’s just say it discharged energy periodically. The Rev. *off-topic* I guess Ken was too worn out by B-Fest to post anything today… Hopefully he’s working on a write-up for us poor souls who couldn’t go. Rock Baker I hope he remembered to grab a poster for me, er, I mean, I hope he had a great time!
