Funko did a handful of bobbleheads based on both the movie and book. Where the Wild Things Are was definitely a stand-out favorite book for me as a kid. It did. The movie did a brilliant job getting in the mind of a child. It is 15 minutes before Max gets in his boat and 20 minutes before you glimpse a Wild Thing.
But the opening scenes lay such a vital foundation for the story. It was a joy to watch Max playing, absorbed in the lonely yet content imagination zone so common to childhood.
The personalities and situations he confronted were simply characterizations of his own emotions and struggles. Pretty common fare for a kid. For those of us enamored with action figures and related paraphernalia, the scene where Carol shows Max his massive diorama was really cool.
Max pops his head up through a hole in the middle of the huge play world, Carol lets in some water to fill the canals, and Max observes all the mini sculptures living in the playset. Utmost gratitude to Maurice Sendak for bringing us to the land of the Wild Things.
Great blog. Those portrait pics are full of so much awesome and fun. Those look pretty darn cool. Not really a fan of the new design, however. Great article. Aaaahh — To be a kid again… Sucks to have your life pulled apart by lawyers and the rest. I know the feeling.
Sometimes I wish I could ride off in a rowboat to a land of make believe. The article also touches upon the lack of Wild Things merchandise. The only thing nicer would to have grabbed it up on vinyl. This is The Ventures moving away from their classic surf sound to a fuzzier garage sound. The track "Fuzzy And Wild" sealed the deal for me. The rest of the album is great 60's instrumental rock that will definitely put a smile on your face as you kick back and think of simpler times.

I actually met the group about 10 years ago and of course I had to ask them why they were banned.
I was told it was because nobody understood the lyrics and they were assumed to be bad. To this day I don't know anybody that knows them. Louie Louie peaked at 2 December 63 and only ' Dominique ' kept it from reaching the top spot. Btw, Louie Louie remained in the 2 spot until it was passed up by a new group from England. They held the top spot until May There was nothing to stop Wild Thing which hit 1 in Jun Louie Louie become an anthem of sorts, but Wild Thing was almost like a precurser to punk.
This is a real hard choice, but I'll go with Wild Thing by a nose. Doug Sclar , Jul 17, Location: Sun Valley, Calif. Larry Naramore , Jul 17, I voted for "Wild Thing.
