Bionic Bigfoot

Classic and campy television programs we love

I'm not sure whether this subject has been posted before or not and since I'm a new member to UM.

A few of the members welcomed me with open arms and mentioned they liked my avatar and nickname. Well, if any of those members wants a trip down memory lane and if you were born circa 1978, you probably watched and remember the 6 Million Dollar Man.

This science fiction program and its spin off - the Bionic Woman, were what got me initially intrigued by unexplained mysteries. I was aware that bigfoot/sasquatch was an actual creature of myth, legend and folklore in pop culture at that time too and read as many books on the subject as I could. Considering it was the 70's, Kenneth Johnson actually created a fairly good representation of Sasquatch AND of course with the late, great Andre the giant playing the part originally. The costume was pretty decent for the time period and combined with those white eyes and the bionic sounds, that TV beast was quite intimidating to younger viewers. ;)

This was Steve Austin's first encounter with the bionic Sasquatch:

Andre the Giant also battled the Greatest American Hero too in an episode "Heaven Is In Your Genes" but couldnt locate on youtube.

What about Kung Fu's Cain battles a demon:

You jerk you beat me to it! :) I can never forget that show, much to my dismay.

I've just put on Season 2 of Lost in Space for our little lad!

See if I can turn him towards classic Sci-Fi!
