Terrible Thunderlizards - A group of incompetent dinosaurs trying to eliminate the human race (of 125 million years B.C.) on segments of the the animated cartoon EEK! THE CAT/FOX/1992-1997.

Falsely accused of giving aid to a renegade gang called the Thugasaurs, the Terrible Thunderlizards are conditionally pardoned from Jurassic Prison in Jurassic City and placed under the supervision of General Galapagos. Their mission? To seek out and destroy any remnant of the pesky humans who roam the Jurassic landscape.

Of course, this isn't going to be much of a job because there are only two cave people in the whole place - namely Scooter, an inventor and Bill, his sidekick who has the perilous job of testing all of Scooter' inventions.

Oddly, the Terrible Thunderlizards never do catch the extremely lucky cave men. Maybe, they needed more that the 11-minutes allotted each episode to do the deed.

The Terrible Thunderlizards were introduced on the EEK! THE CAT show during the second season in 1993. The show was written by Bill Kopp and Savage Steve Holland.

The main characters on the show included:

The Terrible Thunderlizards (and friends)

  • Doc Tari is the fearless leader of the Terrible Thunderlizards who speaks like Arnold Schwarzennegger. His catchphrase is "We Move!"

  • Bo Diddley Squatt is a dim-witted diplodocus. He is a clumsy screw-up and the perfect volunteer to assess dangerous situations. .

  • Day Z. Kutter is a Tricerotops. He's sort of the Larry of the group. He's not as smart as the leader and not as stupid as Bo Diddley.

  • Mr. T-Rex is a military strategist who assists the Thunderlizards. He speaks like Mr. T. and likes to say "i Pity the Fool." Mr. T-Rex employs the help of two other recruits, El Gordo and Nate the Dragon. Collectively, Mr. T-Rex. El Gordo, Nate and the Thunderlizards were called "The Magnificent-Five-and-a-Half."

  • General Galapagos is the bad-tempered dinosaur who oversees the missions of the Terrible Thunderlizards. He first sent Mr. T-Rex, El Gordo (a master of disguise) and Nate the Dragon (a martial arts expert) to assist the Terrible Thunderlizards in hunting down the humans. Of course, even with help, the Thunderlizards never had any luck at accomplishing their mission.

The Thugasaurs

  • Thugo is the diabolical leader of a group of black-hooded skeleton-like dinosaurs knows as the Thugasaurs. They live in the X-Zone on the outskirts of Jurassic City (a frequent target of the Thugosaurs). Because Thugo's vanity insists he always look good, Thugo often spends more time trying to improve his appearance than accomplishing his evil plans. 

  • Biff is Thugo's wimpy, flower-loving, second in command. He's really too dainty to be part of a villainous organization like The Thugasaurs.  

The Humans

  • Scooter is a jolly, overly enthusiastic cave man. He loves to invent such things as a square wheel, baseball (actually "beesball" because they use a beehive as the ball), and the pogo stick.

  • Bill is Scooter's whiny partner in the invention game. He gets to test drive the newest devices often with ill consequences. When he's not hurting from a failed experiment, Bill must watch out for a dangerous species of Jungle Slug who likes to eat him.
