Cthulhu fhtagn!

It's been a while since my last post on random cthuliana, so to compensate I'll give you a quite informative link. Click, and it'll take you to How Stuff Works's Cthulhu article.

I know I've been posting a lot of videos lately, but this time it's actually relevant. Then again, Ghostbusters are always relevant as far as I'm concerned. This episode, The Collect Call of Cathulhu, does a pretty good job of portraying the Lovecraft mythos. Granted, its child-friendly and more than a little eighties, but what else would it be? The quality is not too good though, but it's still watch-worthy. The embedded vid is part 1, and the entire episode is in three parts.

  1. I'm forwarding this to no less than 5 fellow Lovecraftian nuts.


  2. That was a well-done Lovecraftian portrayal for a kid's show.

  3. @Loquacious - I'm honoured that my ramblings and random finds are deemed forward-worthy.

    @Trey - It most certainly is. In fact, I believe I'll recommend this the next time I'm asked to explain the Cthulhu mythos.
