The Octopus Was Very Scary by jbwarner86 The Octopus Was Very Scary by jbwarner86
Ever since I got into Stranger Things, my mind has been a-buzzin' with the notion that an episodic animated version of the show would probably be a lot of fun to see. Every dark entertainment franchise in the '80s seemed to get its own Saturday morning cartoon, so why the hell not? Who wouldn't want to see the further bizarre adventures of Mike, Eleven, Will, Lucas, Dustin, and Max as they uncover more freaky goings-on around Hawkins? And for added nostalgia points, each episode could be a parody of a different freaky '80s movie - The Shining, Christine, Gremlins, Nightmare on Elm Street, Red Dawn, the possibilities are endless.

Thinking about that, I got inspired to plunk the kids into a harrowing adventure straight out of another iconic '80s movie, The Goonies. Well, kind of - the infamous octopus scene was only in the extended edition shown on television, but as I've mentioned before, it was one of my favorite underwater scenes from when I was a kid. If Lucas' wrist rocket doesn't stop this thing, I'm sure Eleven can just rip all its tentacles off or something.

What is the title of this referencing?

It's what Data says to the news reporter at the end of the movie, the line that made everyone in the theater go "Wait, what octopus?" In fact, I bet the TV version put this scene back in just so that line would finally make sense.

I saw the Deleted scene. But the Octopus was integrated into the Level pack on LEGO Dimensions.

I love Max's expression. It's like:

"Why did we leave California?..."

So you finally started watching this show. As such, what are your thoughts on the "violent bully" of the show, Billy?
