LAND OF THE LOST
OH SHIT. SLEESTAKS APLENTY! I know I'm probably a little behind the times on this but the other day I was perusing Gio Entertainment and found that Land of the Lost is coming to the big screen with Will Ferrell on June 5 , 2009. Methinks you'll be seeing sleestaks everywhere come summer and a number of Sleestak costumes next hallow's eve.
I loved Land of the Lost when I was a god damn farting child along with a lot of the other Sid & Marty Krofft low-budge bullshit they shovelled. For me, it was probably the most freakiest show on TV. I remember being scared for the humans and got kinda anxious when I heard the sleestaks' hisses. I'm sure if I watched the show today I'd shake my head and wonder what I saw in it, but I certainly enjoyed it. I love how true-to-the-original the sleestacks look! The fact that they still look like men in rubber suits is great and I'm glad they're not CG or modernized to a point where they look "real."
Of course my all-time favourite Sid & Marty Krofft show was Bigfoot and Wildboy which I have a puzzle of and LP recorded vinyl disc-a-thing that requires a crude needle to play it?!?! Here's the opening for the series!
