This Show...
17 May 2005 | by (Glen Burnie, MD) – See all my reviews

The cartoon was a bit of nothing, but the song--very strong branding! Starstruck got the chorus, the rest goes like this: "One day a boy/Too young to know the danger/Made a friend/Of this giant, fearsome stranger./And the life they lead/On their island home/Became the legend/The legend OF... (chorus)" This song's been in my head all day.

Now, you would think that, with a big guy like King Kong walking around, you'd have giant monsters up against him, but Kong and Billy spent most of their time fighting poachers and smugglers, villains like that. Although this Rankin/Bass cartoon may have become the basis of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon, "Frankenstein, Jr.". In that show, boy scientist Buzz Conroy flew around fighting evil on the back of a giant Frankenstein monster robot.
