Storyline

This comedic send up of H.P. Lovecraft's master work, "Call of Cthulhu" takes the main character (Cthulhu, an alien god, bent on the destruction of man in an orgy of chaotic destruction) and presents it as a fluffy puppet who is running his own call-in show. People call in to ask for relationship advice, farming suggestions, and cooking tips. The answer, more often than not, is a foaming rant confirming for the caller that Cthulhu will one day swallow their souls. Written by Brand Gamblin

Praise the great old ones
21 April 2009 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Calls for Cthulhu are the best comedy stuff about Lovecraft's works i've seen, you have done a great work in your episodes, the callers and their questions are hilarious, specially the answers they get from the great old one, in my opinion the most funny parts are when other gods or powerful entities make a call at the show, i would like to see more of these characters in future episodes, not only from the Cthulhu Mythos but from other mythologies as well or other famous aliens , also the show has a great intro both of them, the puppet is great i wish to know where could i get one for myself, i'm waiting to see more of your episodes soon, i know they'll be as great as the great Cthulhu, ...... Mmmm bad analogy. anyway great work.
