Hey Everyone!

Here's a little holiday gift to keep everyone chilled to the bone. These are a few BGs from our episode "Freddie and the Yeti". I did the layout and the masterful Ian Hastings painted them...ENJOY!

GMonsters! Fact: The park is named after one of the great horror film stars, Peter Cushing. He starred in his own Yeti film called "The Abominable Snowman" for Hammer Pictures.

Mark and I wish you a happy and safe holiday season. May it be cold and lonely like every good monster likes it!

Gorgeous backgrounds and color. Reminds me of the good old days of when a simple cartoon was really worth something. I can't wait to see it in action!
