Mogwai on your Face

Today I offer a challenge to you, the users of the internet.

Some time ago, I was searching for an image on the internet. Usually when I go to find something on the internet, I have absolute confidence that I'll be able to find it. As my boy Mueller has proven time and time again, just about anything can be found out there on the world wide webs.

But on this fateful day, some time ago - I could not for the life of me find an image of the flying sun proof gremlin from Gremlins 2: The New Batch.

I tried searching for hours. "Bat Gremlin", "Gargoyle Gremlin", "Flying Gremlin".... to no avail. The closest thing I found was this image in Wikipedia:

Which isn't actually an image of the gremlin, but rather an image of the director holding up a cardboard standin for the actor to react to, since they would later add the flying gremlin in post processing.

Never mind why I was searching for the flying gremlin image online, but what I ask is this. Can any of my readers find it?

I guess maybe it's a good thing the gremlin I'm seeking has proven so evasive. After all, those little green monsters are notoriously difficult to get rid of.

Ok. So after reading most of the script for Gremlins 2 for hints (no luck), I was able to find this link.

Bat Gremlin

I win!

You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. And there are damn few of us left.

Also - you saved this comic from the dreaded "No Comment" status shared only by 2 comics since I started up again in January. ("Family Values" and "Liver Problems")

I like to assume that means people were laughing so hard they had no energy left to comment - but I have a feeling that's a smidgen optimistic.

I didn't comment because this brought up a bad memory of the last time you asked me to complete this challenge. I'm glad Andy finished it so I don't have to live in shame any longer.

Thank you, thank you very much. Where can I pick up my prize?

D Wheezy said...

Orlando, Florida. Your prize is a free beer, courtesy of me.

You trolling for comments in those two comics now aren't you? I'm not biting.

Come on Ross, you know you want to. One's about drinking, which I know for a fact you love, and one's about hating Carlos Mencia and MadTV, which I also know for a fact you love (hating them, that is.)
