What did that have to do with Squid... isn't friday dedicated to "cool" things squid related/themed :) I searched for muppet+squid and was dissapointed, came back with fishing lures and a (British?) show I never heard of...
I love how the detector worked - but only AFTER Dr. Bunsen was carried off by the gorilla. Technically, it was a successful gorilla detection.
Expect the TSA to install them at all airports.

Only once, but it turned out to be the gorilla my dreams.

"Expect the TSA to install them at all airports."
How else can you nip gorilla warfare in the bud?
But will it detect that I left my baby in the car?
It was not a gorilla. It was so obviously fake -- a giant squid in a gorilla suit.
Everybody knows it’s just a ploy by the gorilla suit companies to sell their products.
"But will it detect that I left my baby in the car?"
Only if it's a baby gorilla.
they should collaborate with those people doing the combat robot ethics stuff, there was some detection involved in that story, too...
I don't know .. but people in the news media routinely see an "800 pound Gorilla" in the room.
I think Jim Henson missed the bet on this one: the alarm should have gone off when the gorilla appeared, but Doctor Bunsen interpreted this as a false alarm, and was so busy trying to fix it that he failed to notice the gorilla.
