TERRAHAWKS - Season 01, Episode 01 - "Expect The Unexpected" (1983)


"Expect The Unexpected!" That's exactly what I'm talking about!

 "TERRAHAWKS" is another Gerry Anderson production, so one thing you shouldn't expect is real people, even if it's a freakin' emergency!

Alternate titles for "TERRAHAWKS" are:
"Jastrebovi Zemlje!"   and......

.....The ever popular ......
"A Brigada Falcão!"

The "TERRAHAWKS" are out to save the world!
We could probably really use them today!

In the year 2020 Earth is under threat from Martian androids who want revenge on the human race. Ironically, Zaeger and Evans didn't predict this was going to happen until the year 2525! The perpetrators are Zelda, (Not to be confused with the video game) her son Yung-star, and her sister Cy-star. (Kind of like "Orphan Black," Sister, Seester, Systar)

A group of defenders is set up on Earth called "TERRAHAWKS," that is top secret to the rest of the world. So, Shhhhhhh!!!

And here they are, the "TERRAHAWKS!"
 I'm using the title sequence shots because, frankly, they're better than the stills I would have gotten from the story itself! The actors doing the voices take on multiple characters, like Lt. Hiro is done by Jeremy (always in the kitchen at parties) Hitchin

Lt. Hawkeye is voiced by Robbie (Littlebigplanet video game) Stevens, and Capt. Kate Kestrel is voiced by Anne (Dr. Gemma Corwyn) Ridler!

Capt. Mary Falconer, and the voice of Zelda are both done by Denise (Labyrinth) Bryer!

"Flaming Thunderbolts!"
Dr. Tiger's voice is also done by Jeremy Hitchen!

Wasn't there an 80's alternative band called Zelda and the Zeroids? 
If not, there sure should have been!! I guess it's not too late!

It's time to check out some Tabonga! Art, all influenced by Horror and Sci-Fi Movies! Most are recent pieces, all show how growing up in the Fifties warped my mind and even caused me to assume a monster's name!!.. Enjoy.

First up is THE GIANT CLAW, the atomic space vulture that came to Earth to lay its eggs and take things over with anti-matter trickery!

This alien plant thing was influenced by the creatures in THE ANGRY RED PLANET. You'll notice this one has a bug parasite coming out of its brain!

Here's another plant monster based on DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS. This one is a Fungus Triffid with deadly spores to decimate the puny human race!!

Then, there's this crawling hand from INVASION OF THE SAUCER-MEN, I've made and sold about 8 of these classic Paul Blaisdell creations so far and plan on doing more, they sell like hotcakes!

After doing the Saucer-Men crawling hands, I decided to do my own version. This is another creeping hand but has two eyes, it's actually just as shocking as the Saucer-Men version!

I've sold a pile of these guys, based on the Venusian monster in IT CONQUERED THE WORLD, another classic design by Paul Blaisdell.

Here's a freaky giant atomic-spawned killer clam, based on the ideas in ATTACK OF THE CRAB MONSTERS, one of my very favorite pieces!

I've done a few of these Meteor Monsters. inspired by the meteor-dust-coated FIRST MAN INTO SPACE. I also used this weird thing in a painting...

Here's an alien rock monster, love rock monsters! The movie I think of when rock monster is mentioned is MISSILE TO THE MOON, they are so kitschy-cool.

This is a Jungle Voodoo Bird, kinda based on the bird thing in CURUCU, BEAST OF THE AMAZON. I just bought a heap of feathers, so, looks like I'll be making monster birds for a while! In fact, I just scored a commission to make a full bodied GIANT CLAW!

I've done quite a few of these nudie jungle gals that are take-offs on VOODOO WOMAN.

This strange little thing was inspired by THE BLOB, done a bunch of these too. I love this piece, I sold it as an LSD HALLUCINATION!

Another BLOB monster, this one's a Tar-Blob that can be found on a distant alien planet!

Here's a very cool monster based on the creatures in THE GREEN SLIME, something you wouldn't want to meet up with in a dark alley! Or actually, anywhere!!

This freaky thing reminds me of the giant monster at the end of THE FLESH EATERS!

ISLAND OF TERROR inspired this piece, it's a slimy flesh-eating atomic mutation horror!

This guy is based on the wild rubber creatures featured in THE OUTER LIMITS series, I've made about 10 of them, they're always fun to build.

I've done a ton of robots too, mainly based on the DALEK bots, I think it looks cool to put eyeballs and teeth on them, makes 'em extra weird!

This totally freaked out crawling monstrosity was inspired by the British movie, ASYLUM. Remember the freezer scene with the attacking body parts?

I'm cheating on this one a bit... I got the idea from comic god, Basil Wolverton, in his story, THE BRAIN-BATS OF VENUS!

So, hope you enjoyed the show, I definitely enjoyed making these monsters. Join us again on Wednesday when Eegah!! will have another fun post to share with us!

By the way, if you're interested, you can find my artwork for sale on eBay, my seller name is 'bongo52' if you want to check them out!

BOOBS AND BIMBOS Part Two: "Bimbo's Auto" (1954)

Tonight's Saturday Night Special hails from Australia, circa 1954, and is Part Two in our Boobs and Bimbos series! This Bimbo is not to be confused with the dog in the Betty Boop cartoons, because the only thing they have in common is that they're both cartoons!

Those damn apostrophes are always going around and changing meanings! They all need to be arrested!

Bimbo's car has been pissing him off!!

Time is running out Bimbo!

For some reason, when it came to the car's bloodshot eye, they added a lot more detail!

Bimbo's olde car is very unhappy when it gets taken to the junk yard!  But as it turns out, his new car has a read bad attitude problem, and is much worse!

I don't know about bimbos, but they sure have got some pissed off cars down under!

WILD RIDERS / Crown International Pictures - 1971

It's Friday and time for this wild bikers flick, the story goes something like this... Sex and ingenious violence abounds in this exploitation psycho-drama about two soul-less, brutal bikers who burst into a mansion occupied by two luscious young women! The girls are immediately and painfully violated until one of their husbands, a cellist, comes home.

This thing stars the still active Alex (BLOOD MANIA) Rocco as Stick, Arell (HOUSE OF TERROR) Blanton as Pete, Elizabeth (BEHIND THE GREEN DOOR) Knowles as Rona and Sherry (THE HARD RIDE) Bain as Laurie.

So, after gang raping women, Pete and his pal decide to get up off their asses and move on down the line. They head off to their new destination.

Hey now!.. That's one fine looking record player!!

Anyway, Pete and his bud stop along the way to get some water, Pete sees something he likes and tries to put the make on this busty married chick. She shines him on...

Then, Pete pilots his bike into the back yard and brings out his bestest pal, Stick!.. Yeah, STICK! A real dense Pig-Pen type! They end up moving in with the married women, Rona and Laurie, after Rona gives in to Pete's charms. Both husbands are out of town.

If Stick's not pulling up his pants on the john, we see him pulling down Lauries's shorts!!

Although Pete and Rona are now lovers, he likes to beat the crap out of her to keep her in line.

Rona's hubby, a song writer, shows up and finds Pete in the house! He takes him outside and nearly chokes him to death. Stick sees what happening and goes and chokes out Rona's husband... To Death!!

Then, Laurie's husband drops in after his musical tour, he plays the cello. Pete and Stick have the gang under control and Pete starts messing with the small musician.

Pete tells him to play a song on the cello before he kills him, so, play he does!! Hey, that bow has a very sharp looking point on it...

The music seems to put Pete into an unguarded moment, and, our brave little musician jabs the bow into Pete's freakin' eyeball!!! The bitch gets his karma payback, so satisfying... That top still is a very clever shot from Pete's view!

Stick gets hit over the head with the cello, then, gets the point of the stand stuck way into his gut by our hero, he falls into the pool and dies, bringing our tale to a weird ending!.. They got what they deserved!

We're back tomorrow with more Dungeon Cargo, just for you!
