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!
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
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 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)
is the fearless leader of the
Terrible Thunderlizards who speaks like Arnold Schwarzennegger. His
catchphrase is "We Move!"
Squatt is a dim-witted diplodocus. He is a clumsy screw-up and the perfect
volunteer to assess dangerous situations. .
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.
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
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.
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.
is Thugo's wimpy, flower-loving, second in command. He's really too dainty to
be part of a villainous organization like The Thugasaurs.
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.
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.
