Saturday Morning Cartoons: Superfriends Reveal Bigfoot Origins

Hurry, while you still in your pajamas! Get that bowl of cereal and enjoy the nostalgia of watching Saturday Morning Cartoons. In this case the Superfriends.

Not only is it fun to watch cartoons from the '80s but the explanation of Bigfoot origins is a surprise mind-boggling ending.

Pioneering News Agency Claims: Ahead of the curve on Bigfoot

The news agency, Wireless Flash News is calling it quits after 30 years. They are claiming they were ahead of the curve before Art Bell was talking about aliens and Bigfoot. They also claim to be the ones who made Ray Wallace famous. Below is an excerpt from the AOL news report.

"We redefined news prep by offering contact numbers to celebrities and to the characters we interviewed," Glynn said.

One of these so-called 'characters' was Ray Wallace, a man from Toledo, Wash., known as "the Father of Bigfoot" after he allegedly saw the hairy creature in 1958.

Glynn interviewed him many times over a 22-year period before Wallace died in 2002. As a result, Wallace was also interviewed by hundreds of other radio stations, TV shows and print media.

"When he died, The New York Times did a story on him," Glynn said. "Without FlashNews, he would have been remembered by a few Bigfoot researchers and the folks in Toledo, Wash. He had fun with it. When I called, his wife, Ulna, would say, 'He's not here,' and Ray would say, 'Now, Ulna, don't be saying that,' and he'd get on the phone."

Glynn points out the Flash -- as the staff referred to it -- wasn't just ahead of the curve on Bigfoot. The agency also reported on extraterrestrials long before Art Bell and the History Channel -- disseminating and popularizing much of the information that has become accepted as E.T. lore.

"At the time, we were owned by Copley Press, a very conservative news organization," Glynn said. "My bosses used to get calls from the Washington bureau claiming that the D.C. radio stations didn't want any of the 'serious' stories they were doing because they'd rather talk about Bigfoot and aliens."

Bigfoot's Last Supper

When we say last supper we don't really mean final supper. We mean, what did he eat last night? We are big supporters of Sasquatch eating a steady diet of fish as in our post titled Fish Food is Brain Food.

The folks at The Bigfoot Investigation Group (TBIG) take it a step further. Indicating we can gain clues from the diets of Native Americans and Grizzly Bears. Its a great article backed by the sourcing for many of their arguments. Below are the bullet points from their post followed by a summary

• Sasquatch looks a lot like a human.

• They have been observed eating many food items that appeal to man and even some that are not so appealing.

• They hunt animals and gather fruits, vegetables and nuts.

• They are known to be opportunistic, as they have been seen removing dead or wounded animals like deer off our roads and highways.

• Many eye witness reports have domesticated animals such as cats, dogs and smaller farm animals like chickens being taken by Sasquatch.

From these facts we can demonstrate the hypothesis – “Sasquatch’s diet is very similar to that of humans”...

...We can safely answer the question: What does Sasquatch eat? Sasquatch eats what the grizzly eats and probably eats what the Native Americans have eaten in the past and more.

These guys did their research, easily building the argument with nutritional facts and the likely availability of different protiens.

More News and Pics From Dave's Bigfoot Show

Another reporter from the Deseret News manages a blog for the paper. His post seems to be from the perspective of an outside spectator.

An excerpt is below:

I wasn't surprised by the stories told at the event's microphone, as I had heard most of them before. However, I was amazed at the reaction of the crowd.

As I walked around the crowd, I couldn't hear any party goers scoffing in unbelief at the stories being told. There may have been some such people there, by they weren't easy to find.

As I talked to 4 random people after the event was over, they had nothing negative to say about the stories given. In fact, one of the four people told me her own bigfoot experience.

So. there must be a lot of people out there with strange stories to tell, but still fearing ridicule.

Above: A shot of a few of the 400 attendees.

Dave's Bigfoot Show in Huntsville UT

The Deseret news reports on a Bigfoot gathering in Huntsville Utah. Below is a few brief excerpts from the article.

Hundreds gather to tell stories of Bigfoot
By Lynn Arave
Deseret News
"HUNTSVILLE, Weber County — If Sasquatch, alias "Bigfoot," exists, does he have a permanent address in the Ogden Valley area?

Purported sightings of a strange creature fitting the description of Bigfoot date back to at least 1968, and interest in the elusive beast has never been higher here.
Jay Barker of North Ogden said he operated the Cold Springs Trout Farm in North Ogden. Soon after, he said, one his neighbors spotted a creature — fitting the Bigfoot description — running off with one of his smaller pigs in hand.

"Bigfoot apparently can't be killed, and he likes fish and pork," Barker said. After the tale telling Monday night in Huntsville, Ogden resident Rob Alley said he thought it was enlightening "I enjoyed the Bigfoot show," he said. Carver's already talking about a "Bigfoot 2" show. "The Bigfoot program took a life of its own."

He posts assorted Bigfoot information on a blog at
About 20 people, likewise Bigfoot enthusiasts, attended a similar event in 1997, held in nearby Eden. The first reported sighting of a Bigfoot in Ogden Valley dates back to the summer of 1968, when a woman living in Wheeler Canyon might have seen the creature."

Dave's blog seems fairly new, but he does seem to be interested in the "Bigfoot as Cain" phenomenon. We have two post regarding the idea ourselves in a post titled Bigfoot Descendant of Cain and IS BIGFOOT MY BROTHER'S KEEPER? His blog has three links regarding Cain, son of Adam.

St. Petersburg Times: Roosevelt related Bigfoot story in his book

The Bauman story as related by "Rough Rider" Teddy Roosevelt is a familiar one to seasoned Bigfooters. The St.Petersburg Times allows us to revisit it.

The article is framed as a Q&A format:
Q:Is it true that President Teddy Roosevelt once claimed to have seen a Bigfoot-type creature?

A:It doesn't appear that Teddy Roosevelt ever saw a Bigfoot, but he wrote about another hunter having an encounter with one in his book, The Wilderness Hunter, which was published in 1893.

Roosevelt related a story told to him by a "grizzled, weather-beaten old mountain hunter, named Bauman" that occurred near the Salmon River between Montana and Idaho. According to the story, Bauman and another man were hunting and trapping beaver when they learned they were being stalked by a creature they thought to be a bear.

Roosevelt writes the creature ransacked their camp while they were gone, and the next day, while Bauman was away, it broke his companion's neck.

"Bauman, utterly unnerved and believing that the creature with which he had to deal was something either half human or half devil, some great goblin-beast, abandoned everything but his rifle and struck off at speed down the pass . . . until beyond reach of pursuit," Roosevelt wrote.

The creature did more than broke his companions neck, as Roosevelt describes in detail in his book...

...The unfortunate man, having finished his packing, had sat down on the spruce log with his face to the fire, and his back to the dense woods, to wait for his companion. While thus waiting, his monstrous assailant, which must have been lurking in the woods, waiting for a chance to catch one of the adventurers unprepared, came silently up from behind, walking with long noiseless steps and seemingly still on two legs. Evidently unheard, it reached the man, and broke his neck by wrenching his head back with its fore paws, while it buried its teeth in his throat...

Alaska's Urayuli and Kushtaka added to AKA Bigfoot World Map

View AKA Bigfoot World Map in a larger map

Below is an exerpt from a page on Bigfoot Encounters titled "Many Names, Alaska's Bigfoot" which contains an article written by Mary J. Barry, author of Alaska's Ghosts, Enigmas, Outlaws and Things That Go Bump!

It should be noted that the Kustaka is more generally described as an otter-like creature. In fact according to Wikipedia,  Loosely translated, kushtaka means, "land otter man". The monkey-like description below is unique to Mary J. Barry's article. To learn about the classic version of the Kushtaka, please read the Wikipedia Page.

John Active, a Yup'ik storyteller from Bethel, has gathered a large number of accounts told by the Yup'ik people of Southwest Alaska concerning their encounters with Urayuli. This being was described as standing ten feet tall, covered with hair, with glowing eyes. Its arms were so long, they reached to the creature's ankles. It was said to roam the tundra and cry out its loneliness with a voice resembling that of a loon. Although its appearance terrified the persons confronting it, the Urayuli never harmed anyone, according to the accounts gathered by Active. However, legendary accounts lore has it that children who disappear while in the woods are transformed into Urayuli.

The Southeastern Kushtaka has a less benevolent reputation. The Natives feared the creature and avoided its habitat. Harry D. Colp described a miner's encounter with the Kushtaka, in an account, which was later published as "The Strangest Story Ever Told."

Colp and three other prospectors teamed up in 1900 at Wrangell. They sent Charlie, one of the four, to Thomas Bay to look over a gold prospect, while the others sought grubstakes to pay their expenses. Charlie went about 50 miles up the coast to this location. There the rains kept him confined to his tent for several days. He then went out, trying to locate the landmarks given to him by an Indian.

By chance, he found a gold-flecked quartz ledge and loosened a piece with his gun, breaking his gunstock in the process. As he was taking his bearings, he said, a troupe of creatures he called "devils," that looked like both men and monkeys, swarmed after him. These shaggy beasts, with long, coarse hair, stinking and covered with sores, pursued him back to his canoe. During the chase, they screamed and scraped his back with "long claw like fingers."

The Messy Melodrama of Bigfoot Wars

That's what they are calling it, they are using adjectives like messy and calling reaction melodramatic! From blogs such as Cryptomundo,Ghost Theory and Bigfoot Books. Its a BIGFOOT WAR-ar-ar (cue echo effect). Were not trying to be sensational, but the difference of Bigfoot opinion has been in the forefront of many high-profile Bigfooters. It is a convoluted story and we are not a blog for length. We are more like: get in, feed your Bigfoot news appetite, get out. Yum, yum.

Thankfully someone took the time to explain the whole thing in a little over 10,00 words (10,191 to be exact). At Bigfoot Book's Bigfoot Blog they cover the WHOLE thang. From The Mr. Mike Debacle, CryptoMundo Demise?, BFF Insurrection, Outing the Bigfootery Enquirer, and even Lenny Green's Wildman Songs. We have a nifty machine that takes a whole bunch of words and tries to summarizes them. Below is the result of that. I don't know if it does it justice, but here is a an automated summary Of the post at Bigfoot Books's Blog.

Bigfoot and other Pongidae Skeletons

You can click the picture above to see larger version.

New Illustration for you Bigfoot Lunch Clubbers. As most primatoligist and anthropologist know, we humans share a classification called Homindae which includes Pongidae (the three/four other great apes; Gorillas, Orangutans, and Chimps/Bonabos).

Well, obviously BF would fit into that class as well. Above are the skeletons of the homidae/pongidae family, notice different porportions such as a a gorillas wider torso, orangutans longer slimmer build, and the chimps thicker, stockier leg bones. The BF skeleton is a blend of a Gigantopithecus reference and the Patterson film.

Wigs on sale at Wal-Mart; Man Makes Bigfoot Attraction

How do you beat a fiberglass castle maze, 50 ft mechanical dinosaurs, or stone henge made out of foam (foamhenge)? You buy 40 wigs at Wal-Mart and create a Bigfoot roadside adventure open to the public.

Mark Cline A.K.A. Professor Cline begins to explain why a roadside park with castles and dinosaurs did not satisfy his creative urges.

“When I was a kid, I was a member of the Bigfoot Fan Club,” said Mark Cline, recalling his misspent 1970s youth. “They sent you a record of his grunts.”

And what was the inspiration for his Bigfoot attraction 40 years later?

“Right after Halloween last year, I walked into Wal-Mart,” he said. “I saw 40 black afro-wigs at 90 percent off. I said, “I can get these for 80 cents apiece. What can I do with them? Well, I could make Bigfoot out of them….’ And, bam!, all of a sudden all the tumblers fell into place.”

The result is Mark Cline’s newest attraction, Hunt Bigfoot with a Redneck.

As Mark describes it, the attraction is an exercise in “adventure storytelling,” with lots of bad puns and monsters thrown in. Visitors meet the redneck outside his trailer in the woods. The redneck says that he and his kin have lived in harmony with Bigfoot for years. But now his singing Big Mouth Billy Bass is missing, and he intends to hunt down Bigfoot to get his fish back.

The hunting trail leads past several “redneck urban legends,” according to Mark, including a crashed flying saucer and a hermit Elvis. Bigfoot is finally spotted inside an outhouse and blown up with dynamite.

If your ever in the Virginia area it is one of the roadside attractions recommended by

Professor Cline's Haunted Monster Museum & Dark Maze
Address: Hwy 130, Natural Bridge, VA
Directions: I-81 to the exits for Natural Bridge, then follow US 11 into town. At the junction of Hwy 130 and US 11, across Hwy 130 from the entrance to the Natural Bridge attraction.

Chinese spot Bigfoot in Hubei Province--again

Above is a view of the Hubei province in China.

Today, an English-written Chinese newspaper briefly reports the sighting of a sasquatch-like creature. This is a hot area that had many sightings back in 2003.

The article is small enough to repost here:


BEIJING, July 19 (Xinhuanet) -- Bears or Bigfoot? That's what villagers in Shennongjia, Hubei Province are wonder-ing ever since one man named Ding Fei, 33, found mysterious thick curly hairs with transparent roots on July 9 at a location called Swallow Hole on a local mountain.

After Ding reported his discovery to the neighborhood committee, some professional researchers found additional hairs and a 30-centimeter-long footprint at the same place on July 11.

According to their research, the hair isn't human or livestock, but the possibility of bears could not be ruled out.

Fish Food is Brain Food for Sasquatch

A new scientific paper supports the notion that the oily lipids in fish are necessary to, literally, lubricate the brain of an intelligent primate and as far as we are concerned that includes Sasquatch.

The Bigfoot diet is somewhat a mystery (go figure). We can be pretty certain Bigfoot is not strictly a vegetarian as are his cousins; chimpanzees or gorillas — are almost totally vegetarian. Except for an occasional meal of insects, tiny animals, or turtle, they are herbivorous.

Other large primates have the luxury of diverse vegetation and nuts in their habitat. Bigfoot requires more protein. We have heard reliable reports of Bigfoot chasing herds, even eating small deer, but is this the best way for Sasquatch to get protein? The kind of protein needed for an intelligent bipedal ape? The new paper suggest Bigfoot, being an intelligent hominid would need a steady diet of fish to lubricate his brain.

So how did they come to the conclusion oily lipids are necessary for the intelligent ape? By studying the past...

" is the nutritional content in the tropical fish that helped human brain development. This helped increase intelligence enough for them to fish more often and more successfully. And for the growing human baby, the nutritional content in fish becomes vital to increase and maintain a high brain:body ratio.

Also note that fish contain those vital nutrients that the brain needs in order to develop and grow. The human brain is “oily”, containing as much as 600g of lipid per kg, with long chain fatty acids like arachidonic acid (AA) docosa-hexenoic acid (DHA), that the body does not produce; they are thus “essential nutrients” – and fish have them in good measure.--D. BALASUBRAMANIAN

Bigfoot vs. The Zombies

Zombies have long been a staple of independent horror films and recently the genre has expanded to include Bigfoot. It was inevitable that a young studio would include both. This is the brain-child of Abandoned Cinema, creators of Adelle, Lobsteroids, Monster in the Woods and the zombie epic 2 (coming to Blu-Ray from Elite Entertainment this Fall.)

It sounds like the movie will be made by democracy, which should be interesting in its own right. Fans will be able to donate and pick who wins in the epic battle between Bigfoot Vs. Zombies.

“We are setting out to make the film that we think the fans would want to see in this situation, we don’t want to settle for some half assed human element in this battle, and that’s what a studio would make us do. We think the fans want to see a feature length film that really delivers on what the title suggests. We are promising a film that delivers on that title from the start to the gory end,” says co-writer/director Andy Davis (2, Adelle, Monster in the Woods).

The fans of the genre will decide if this film gets made by putting up their own money, and offering their own thoughts on everything involved in the film from the look of the creatures to the storyline to weather practical effects will be primarily used or CG.

Bigfoot of Another Color or The Rise of the Blonde Bigfoot

Above is a picture of Mike Rugg of the Bigfoot Discovery Museum and Paul Ruebens of Pee-Wee Herman fame.

Mike Rugg posted a video today on his YouTube Channel of a encounter he has been working on for a couple of years.

There are two striking things to us.

One, the witness is a bicyclist who often camps in the same areas. Time and time again we have heard from the likes of Autumn Williams of Oregon Bigfoot and Ron Moorehead of the Sierra Sounds Bigfoot Recordings that people with multiple encounters visit the same spot over and over again, eventually allowing Sasquatch to become acclimated to the witness.

Two, the other thing of note, is the rise of blonde Bigfoot. Mostly Bigfoot's fur is considered dark brown, cinnamon, or black. What do we make of the North Carolina Man's description of a blond Bigfoot and in Mike Rugg's video of a white haired one?

Mike Greene Gets Press in NC

In an article "Hunting for Bigfoot: Expert stakes out forest" Mike Green is followed as he looks for Bigfoot in North Carolina.

Mike Greene is nationally recognized as an expert Bigfoot investigator, so we went along with him one night in search of Bigfoot.
It is dark, so dark you can see the stars and hear the crickets chanting all around.
"It's the anticipation of boogeymen in the darkness, people are scared of the dark," said Greene.
We are miles from anything, a little more than an hour from Charlotte at a secret location in the Uwharrie National Forest.
"Every time it's, 'This could be the night,'" Greene says into the darkness.
We are here, hunting Bigfoot.
"It's the proverbial needle in the haystack. It really is," says Greene."My theory is, do it enough and eventually our paths are going to cross and that's finally what happened."
Greene says he's seen Sasquatch a handful of times in the 20 years he's been on the hunt.
"Right over my head I heard two deep, I call them Darth Vader breaths," says Green. "That got my attention in a hurry." --MICHELLE BOUDIN / NewsChannel 36

Hard Wired Traits in all Primates Including Humans and Sasquatch

The photo above is of Laurie Santos A.K.A. The Monkey Whisperer. With such a title you would assume she may be a primatologist, she's not, She's a Yale University psychologist, and primatologist are listening to her.

Her findings reveal that not even 30 million years of Dependant evolution can rewire what is innate within our shared primate DNA.

Lemurs, from the island of Madagascar off the coast of Africa, evolved in isolation for some 30 million years. Despite this long separation from the rest of the primates, they now have something in common with a group of rhesus macaques in Puerto Rico and capuchin monkeys living at Yale: They all contribute to Santos’s wide-ranging study of our primate relatives, offering an unparalleled glimpse into our evolutionary past. Monkeys, it turns out, have many of the same survival skills that we do, from a predilection for forming groups to a knack for taking risks and deceiving adversaries. -- Linda Marsa, Discover Magazine

We provide the link to the article below, but there were three unique characteristics that we thought were of interest to Bigfooters. Some of these traits may seem obvious to the seasoned bigfooter, but its always nice to see confirmation from the scientific academic community.

1. Bigfoot knows what your looking at; when your looking at her, she changes her behavior
The results of Santos observations not only suggested Lemurs payed attention to which direction the experimenters were looking, but were perceptive enough behave differently (like stealing lemons) when they thought they were not being watched.

2. Bigfoot can count and uses those numbers to predict outcomes.
Whether counting how many researchers in a team or how many times Bigfoot has seen them, Bigfoot Remembers. Adult lemurs are as good as six-month old baby at adding and subtracting.

3. Bigfoot doesn't have to create a tool to use it.
In other words, without history or training, primates were able to distinguish the purpose of tools just by the features they had (i.e. Hammers, screwdrivers, bags, strings).

These traits are true for all primates across the board from the primitive lemur to the complex human. The implications of these behaviors confirm many assumptions Bigfooters have long contemplated.

Bigfoot: Bone Flesh and Fur

Click image to see larger view

Are people still talking about Enoch? We had tons opinions and many emails and comments requesting us to weigh in, but then we thought better of it.

We do, however, think there is still value in using research to discover Bigfoot. For one, we don't all have the benefit of knowing a guy named Mike from Florida. Two, we are as much in love of the pursuit as we are with the eventual proof.

That's right, we love the pursuit, the guessing, the pondering and the wondering. So we decided to do something about fostering what WE love about Bigfooting; the sharing of ideas.

So here we are, with some neat concept art of Gigantopithecus blacki. The Gigantopithecus blacki skull, introduced to us bigfooters by Dr. Grover Krantz. It is a reconstruction based on a large Chinese male fossil jaw, assuming bipedal posture and ape-sized brain.

We always wanted to see a muscle reconstruction and then a flesh one on top, this way we could see the relationship of each layer. Things we noticed are lack of forehead muscles, theres no room for them. We were also were very surprised how it really was really "in-between" human and ape. Most art we see is either to far in one direction, this concept, we thought, struck the balance between the two.

Share your thoughts, tell us what you think we got right (or wrong) and share what you would like to see next.
