HERCULOIDS by nocturnals23 HERCULOIDS by nocturnals23
As a kid I worshipped this show. To be Dorno and live on a wild planet with super-monsters as my pals... Heaven for 5 year old.

this commission took about two weeks to produce the art for. But it took me five years to make room to do it.

Time they made this a Hollywood movie, along with the other HB shows of that age ....instead of just to spoof them.

Dan I just saw this displayed in the gallery at Fall Con in St. Paul this past weekend and was blown away! Any chance you might do prints of these?

Tara and Zandor are a little weak, but the power of the Herculoids creatures more than makes up for it.

One of my favorites as well. Just the idea of a kid who had super-MONSTERS - not super-heroes, but monsters - as friends was just too cool. And I loved Gloop and Gleep. They were just awesome. :)

I agree with you, :nod:
and Gloop and Gleep were a funny beings.
And by thinking it now, they look like B. O. B.

Awesome. Huge fan of the show, which occasionally runs on Boomerang. I taped a bunch of them. Great work, big fan.

Count me in as another Herculoids fan! Even did a fanart of my two favorite characters [link]

Warner Bros. Home Video will be releasing a DVD set called Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1960's Vol. 1 on May 19th. It'll contain episodes of (among others) Atom Ant, Space Ghost, Frankenstein Jr. and the Impossibles... and The Herculoids! First time any Herculoids have been released on DVD (unless you count their guest appearance on a Space Ghost cartoon). I hope this is the harbinger of a complete series release soon!

Oh, and the artwork rocks!! :love: :+fav:
