Yeti on YouTube

"Yung Yeti" animation short

The WCW wrestler inexplicably named The Yeti was first mentioned on this site here. Please pay attention to how the announcer pronounces "yeti" -- hilarious. Also, "The yeti is taller than a giant!" -- great quote.

The part of Zelda: Twilight Princess that contains yeti. **SPOILER WARNING**

Yeti content starts at 1:45.

Is Lonely

Laugh-Out-Loud Cats #554 stars the yeti!

According to Pip, yeti is lonely.

Write that down in your copybooks now.

For those of you who don't know, Adam Koford, aka Ape Lad, does many great things, such as Laugh-Out-Loud Cats, on his site, Hobotopia.

I've posted about him before.

Herbert Sherbert the Yeti

Noël ILL is an illustrator that created a yeti named Herbert Sherbert, and the illustration of said creation is getting a lot of positive attention.

She has even fashioned plush versions of it:

** I applaud her for taking her yeti representation into the third dimension, particularly in the plush medium, and I would urge other artists to do the same. **

This is her web site to see more.

And what is to stop you from buying all of the things from her cafe press shop?

Note: She loves the movie Tron, and not everyone does (I do!).

Owls as well.

Yeti=Snow Troll Redux, and Thanksgiving

Sometimes I advocate that yeti is nothing more than a snow troll.

It's just a hobby of mine. Something to do between watching football games and actually playing football games.

Note: I neither play nor watch football games.

Snow trolls are very "thanksgiving"-ly oriented to me, and so in honor of the season and the fact that I found another picture of a snow troll that resembles a yeti, I am posting about it now.

Have a happy thanksgiving!

Bouma the Yeti

You've heard of a cooking show. You've heard of a children's show.

But have you ever heard of a children's cooking show? (i.e. BOTH?)

Well, there was/is one in the United Kingdom on BBC.

It was/is called Planet Cook.

It features a yeti named Bouma as a sidekick.

According to the press release, Bouma was/is:

A loveable happy-go-lucky young yeti who likes cooking and helping out where he can but his attention span is quite short.

He requires a fair amount of supervision to make sure he doesn't cause any kitchen catastrophes.

And now you know... but don't take my word for it!

A Reckoning...

Everyone needs to see what fatrobot has done.

    Time to Get Gifts for People!

    I call myself a yeti lover and yet I don't even have the following in my possession.

    For all I know, the yeti lover in your own life may be missing these essentials as well.

    Take heed! Tragic circumstances can be rectified.

    Yeti as a cuddly stuffed animal

    Yeti as an even cuddlier stuffed animal

    Yeti as inexplicably transmutated into a CAR?!

    And no, I don't even have the greatest figurine ever made of yeti:

    Prigmore Yeti

    Artist Shane Prigmore was asked by Laika (Henry Selick's stop motion animation company) to design some Abominables for a holiday commercial.

    More yeti designs by him on his blog. Check it out!

    Here's the final design they went with (nabbed from the commercial which you can watch here).

    Thank you to Yayo for an awesome find.

    So eloquent...

    Here is everything yeti has ever said:

    If you know of something yeti is on record as saying, please, please, post it in the comments. You are doing a service for the humankinds of people.

    Just rrarrring to go

    Drizzt Do'Urden is a dark elf. One day, during his comic book adventures, he battles a couple of yeti. They almost get the best of him. But he is rescued by somebody to advance the plot.

    Note that the yeti say "RRAR" and sometimes "RRARRR".

    Maybe in the Forgotten Realms, they don't say "SNNAAAURR" as they do in our world.
