How can Bob ever leave the memory, ever not be one of the superlative referents of slinky slithering creatures. A couch with a coffee table always has the possibility of Bob crawling behind form each to get taste of you. Having seen Rescuers Down Under far before Twin Peaks, I always associated Bob with the Reptile Man from this children’s movie, who was possibly based off of Bob. There’s always been a fascination with the Rescuers Down Under because of this character, and some interest in men who are portrayed as leashing a reptile, and the fear of that man being released himself. The man in Herzog’s Fata Morgana reminded me of these two characters. I would like help creating a list of others Reptilian Men, found in movies.
1. Twin Peaks
2. The Rescuers Down Under
3. Fata Morgana
Man, ages ago I saw an old movie on the Sci Fi channel (back when, you know, it was spelled correctly) about a man who turned slowly into a reptile, complete with peeling skin et al. It was an awesome show and I think about it often enough but I never remembered what it was called.
There are also lizard-men being sorta “koopas” in Super Mario Bros. The Movie. But, well, that movie being fun in its own way I STILL do not know if it is all helpful for the purpose of this thread. I mean, technically the lizard men are there, but what does that inclusion offer to your ideas?
Carnivale, the HBO series, has a snakeman of some sort.

Possibly SSSSSSSSSSSS (I forget how many esses).
And, please folks, it’s “based ON” not ’based OFF OF."
