Is this why I’ve always wanted a fez and smocking jacket?* Maybe.
[*Seriously, I have. However, good smoking jackets cost way too much dough.]
My dad had a smoking jacket. The only time I remember him wearing it was to a hallowwen party, he went as Fu Manchu. That was back in the late 60s.
When I was a teen I actually had bought a flannel nightshirt because Laurel & Hardy used to wear them. I could never find a flannel nightcap to go with it, though, or a candle holder tray with a little curly-q finger ring. So the novelty wore off quickly.
Many youngling Jedi used the force to try out the old ‘Invisable man’ gag with whatever cloths were at hand.
Trust me, a smoking jacket is nothing in comfort and class compared to the Snuggie: The Blanket With Sleeves tm
I don’t get the fez though, was the invisible man here Turkish? I don’t remember Claude Rains wearing one but it’s been awhile since I saw the movie.
It’s the smoking jacket and nothing else that bothers me. Thank God the man IS invisible!
What makes me want a smoking jacket is the impeccable wardrobe of one Mr. Thurston Howell III!
No, I think it was more to make the guy a character. However, they made him sound like Sidney Greenstreet (if I’m remembering correctly), so it fits from that angle.
Oh, that’s why they called him the Invisible Commando.
This reminds me: Ken, ever think about devoting a week to invisible monsters? You could spend a day with Claude Raines, spend another on more obscure cinematic treats, like the invisible dinosaur from The Sound of Horror…
Sadly, we already did Forbidden Planet. Let me think if there’s five such beasties I could find good stills for.
Need not be bad guys. The Invisible Woman fits the bill…
Even by the low standards of MotD, Invisible Woman isn’t a ‘monster.’
Except at that time of the…okay, even I won’t go there. I still have a survival instinct.
You should get five days worth, Ken. I have faith in you.
Snuggie: A Bathrobe Put On Backwards
Worst case, just post a picture of scenery and let everyone try to guess. I mean, the monster’s invisible!
Yeah, my first response to the Snuggie commercial was ‘huh???’
My mom’s was ‘That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen!’
We mocked those ads mercilessly, especially the white guy trying to “raise the roof” whilst sitting on his couch in his Snuggie. We actually got Chelsea one for Xmas as sort of a gag gift. It turned out that she rather likes it, and gets good use out of it in wintertime.
One episode of RED DWARF featured a zero budget parody called “Attack Of The Invisable Aliens That You Can’t See” or something.
That reminds me of the time I was handed a picture of a polar bear in a blizzard. Of course the page was blank, but no one told me that.
Longest week of my life, staring at that page. And you know the worst part? I finally found the damn thing. Never heard the end of it.
How about the invisible monster Picard and Paul Winfield fought in the STNG ep Darmok?
There is the invisible energy monster from Johnnie Quest. Your choice as to whether to use the tie-dyed version.
Wasn’t he already featured during Jonny Quest week?
I don’t remember, but hey its Johnnie Quest – cool enough for a repeat
Yes, he was, I remember that one clearly.
