According to the book "Creating the Filmation Generation", Dino De Laurentiis approached Lou Scheimer of Filmation to develop an animated spin-off starring the son of Kong. Robert Lamb came up with some pretty wild ideas involving "Kid Kong" being able to change his size at will and travel to various different planets, as well as underwater in a submarine made out of giant coconuts and bamboo called the 'Coco-Nautilis'. Needless to say, "Kid Kong" never got off the ground. See more »
The incision that the doctors make to perform Kong's heart transplant is totally wrong. See more »
Dr. Andrew Ingersoll:
That cost this institute seven million dollars!
Dr. Benson Hughes:
She knows how much it costs. She's been a part of it since we first got Kong's heart resuscitated.
There's nothing wrong with the heart. The damn thing runs like a Swiss watch. It's his blood.

Well, the only thing good in this movie is the split-second flash you get of Linda Hamilton's rack. I don't know who the hell the rest of these people were. There was some blond dufus named "Hank". And a lot of really bad special FX. All in all, it's an awful movie.
But just imagine if it had been made today, it'd have super-slick CGI effects for the monkeys and a sound track by Elton John singing about "shining stars" and hairy monkey suits. Joel Schumacher would direct of course. The female lead would be played by Denise Richards except she wouldn't show her boobs. There'd be long shots of Hank's naked ass several times throughout the movie. Wouldn't it be great?
Er, maybe I'll just watch to 80's version again.
