Gremlins 'George' action figure
Absolutely impeccably designed, George looks like grumpy perfection. Yes, George the Mogwai is reminiscent of that certain moody grandparent/uncle of yours. Brilliant.
In 1983, Michael Sembello had a huge hit with “Maniac” from Flashdance. Hoping to recapture sweaty, headbanded lightning in a bottle once more, the film’s producers enlisted Sembello to record the above single, “Gremlins… Mega Madness,” for the soundtrack. (It can be briefly heard during the sequence in the movie when the Gremlins take over Dorry’s Tavern). Unfortunately, the track failed to chart, proving yet again that America was not ready for monster puppet-inspired aerobics. Bummer. It's absolute tosh, so SAY WE.
