- Stupidest-Looking Monster
The Touching Gappa Family Reunion
I wonder if they're like Star Trek aliens. Each Gappa has a slightly different head protrusion. Oh, and in case you hadn't figured it out, they're triphibian because they walk, swim, and fly.
- Worst Science
"Makes a Great Story, Doesn't It?"
The egg must have been in suspended animation for a million years, and then just happened to hatch due to a change of a few degrees. "Makes a great story, doesn't it?"
You can see the "clouds" projected onto the Gappa above the waterfall.
