Hands Down (Clawed Hand) The Creature is My Favorite Movie Monster

My fellow Cool & Collected bloggers have the assignment of writing about our favorite movie monsters.  The Creature of the Black Lagoon is hands down my favorite movie monster follow by a very distant Mummy!  Growing un in the Kansas City metro area in the late 60's & 70's, I watched Friday Fright night each week with my father on our CBS affiliate.  The Night Stalker, The Abominable Dr. Phibes, giant mutated ants, the Mummy, and Dracula were all exciting to young boy, but the Creature was my go to movie monster.  The highlight of most Friday nights was the time spent with my dad (until he would reach out and grab my leg during a suspenful moment each week!)

I have many games and toys that I am on the look out for, but most likely the most difficult find will be the Creature board game by Hasbro.  

The Monsters Cafe at Universal Studios in Orlando has a wonderful collection of monster movie props, photos, and costumes.  I wonder what the Creature and President Nixon were discussing?


Thank for sharing in my love for the Creature.  I hope you have a happy Halloween!  Please check out my fellow bloggers favorite movie monsters posts; Cool and Collected.

A 100+ Eyes Are Better Than Two!


I would love to find the following board games. I have never seen any of these games in the wild.  A copy of the Black Lagoon sold for over 1K several years ago on Ebay.  I did manage to find a Hogan's Heroes lunchbox last April at the Chicago toy show.  I am looking forward to attending a toy show in Sioux City in November!  What can I find for you?  a 100 set of eyes are better than just my two.
