Name That Trauma:: Kim R. on Floating Toys That Transform

November 4th, 2014 by unkle lancifer · 4 Comments

Hello! I have this bizarre memory of watching something when I was super super young, maybe 3 or 4 (1989-90?) and to this day I can’t figure out if it was real or not. I remember a small boy going to bed and then all of a sudden all the toys in his room start floating and form together to create a giant, scary robot looking chicken?? No amount of googling turns anything up. Would love to have this mystery solved if it’s real!

UNK SEZ: Thanks Kim R.! Hmmm, I guess this trauma happened way too early to have anything to do with the TV show ROBOT CHICKEN so that’s out. For some reason I keep thinking of 1985’s MAKING CONTACT even though I’m pretty sure there is no robot chicken in that movie. Oh Well, I’m going to put that bonkers flick below just in case somebody wants to watch it and I’ll also keep my chicken fingers crossed that one of our fine readers knows the answer you’re looking for!

My first thought was Escape From Witch Mountain. There is a scene where the kids use their powers to make their toys come alive and dance. I want to think there was a bird marionette too, which might account for the chicken memory.

You may be thinking of Chicken Thing.

I used to love this video as a child.

Something very similar happens in the anime film AKIRA- not a chicken, but a few large toy monsters. Of course, it’s an animated film, so…
