What did that have to do with Squid… isn’t friday dedicated to “cool” things squid related/themed πŸ™‚ 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.

How many times have you
awakened at night in the dark
and said to yourself…”Is there
a gorilla in here?”

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

it turned out to be the gorilla my dreams.

A somewhat friendlier way for two flesh to become one.

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.
