    Re: Monstro is now BLUE!

    When I saw the title, I was expecting a bright, light blue color for some reason.

    I really like the new color on him! He looks a lot better!

    Re: Monstro is now BLUE!

    When I first saw him yesterday I thought "boy they had a lot of paint left over in Tomorrowland so they used it on Monstro".

    I like it. He was just darker blue then.... I just think they used what paint they had and mixed it up....

    I like him.
    I'm addicted and I don't care!!!

    Darker than he is now, but definitely with a blue cast.

    Answer: None

    Monstro's teeth closely resemble an "Orca" ("Killer Whale"), which is actually more closely related to the dolphin / porpoise toothed-whale family than to most species of whale; I think that the Right Whale still falls into this class as well... Most of the larger whales (Blue Whale, etc) are members of the Baleen family: they have baleen (a big seive to strain the tiny fish / plankton that they eat) instead of teeth.

    I think that Disney incorporated the teeth into the original movie to add "danger" to the scenes...

    (baleen just doesn't have the same Fear Factor)

    Re: Monstro is now BLUE!

    Everyone is trying to figure out what kind of whale Monstro is - from his teeth, to the shape of his head.....etc. I have the answer. HE is a Cartoon Whale!

    And when I was a kid, that eyeball on Monstro used to captivate me...I remember standing there at probaby the age of 4 just staring at it...watching it open and close....fascinated me...and Monstro is one of the most fantastic pieces in Fantasyland - I think.

    Monstro is based on a Sperm Whale ala Moby Dick. The head and body shape, the teeth etc, all conform to those of a Sperm Whale.

    Monstro's whale eyeball may have captivated you, DD, but it skeered the heck outta me as a kid!!! Monstro always seemed to watch me while I was eating my tuna sandwich.

    He still kinda scares me.
