Star Trek: TOS episode "A Private Little War" was a decent episode, and let's be honest. Dumb-looking rubber monsters suits were REQUIREMENTS
for '60's and '70's sci-fi!

And compared to the movie "Robot Monster".......A Mugato looks BELIEVEABLE!!!

Do like the drawing you did.....would have been a good cover for "Astounding Science Fiction" magazine....maybe a "Doc Savage" novel

I certainly like "A Private Little War." The only thing that bugs me is the way the blonde wigs worn by the dudes look!

Both the damsel and the monster would have worked well in a classic Flash Gordon episode. I'm sure he fought the Mugato's relative sometime. :) (Smile)

Buster Crabbe as Flash Gordon fought the "Orangopoid" in gladiatorial combat in the 1939 "Flash Gordon." It's famous ape (and cowboy) actor Ray "crash" Corrigan in his standard ape suit, with a horn added.

Ah, I knew I saw that critter somewhere! If I had my way, Kirk would have been attacked by the Muguato and saved by this spear-wielding witch.

 Well this is OG STAR TREK so cleavage can be taken for granted - especially when Jim Kirk gets his shirt ripped!;) (Wink)

It's a good one -a parable for the Vietnam war, if you choose to look at it that way.

Well, you can just choose to watch it as an action packed scifi drama, but there is certainly a message there. And Kirk and McCoy reference the "jungle wars" of the late 20th century, that went on "year after bloody year."

When I was a child one of the things that used to bother me about Trek overall was the lack of non-humanoid aliens, which doesn't bother me as much anymore as I get other types of scifi-kicks from the franchise. But my inner child will always be especially fond of all their attempts at freakier aliens. :)

It's strange, because Doctor Who, which was made for less money than Star Trek, had more of those non-human monsters; really weird and imaginative creatures.

The Outer Limits, had those.
And Star Trek are human morality tales in a future format. Therefore requiring humans. :shrug:

Yeah, I have never been able to understand it. That is the most common excuse for the original Trek lacking non-human creatures and other fantastical elements, while they had a bigger budget per episode than Doctor Who usually had per serial.

The Outer Limits had wilder monsters, yes -made by the Project Unlimited production team. As they also worked on Star Trek, some creatures from OL made guest appearances on ST.

I thought it was scary as a kid and yeah it was in Voyage too...they showed both shows in syndication on rival local channels and noticed the same monster even with a six year old brain! The local channels always had monster movies and shows on!

There were a small number of ape guys with suits of their own, doing the rounds in Hollywood, from b-movies to TV shows. So the same suits pop up all over the place.

One of the worst ape costumes of all time, next to the King Kong suit from King Kong vs Godzilla. And yet it was also used in "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea"

Actually I thought it didn't look all that bad. Especially as it's supposed to be an alien creature. The suit was also featured on an episode of "Here's Lucy."

:D Well, that’s because it wasn’t an ape, it was a mugato, an alien creature that resembles a guy in a cheesy ape suit with a horn in its forehead...
