Western Animation: Inhumanoids
"The evil that lies within!"
was a 13-episode Western Animation
show by Sunbow Entertainment
that aired in 1986. Like most 80's cartoons, it was based on an accompanying toyline
, which was made by Hasbro
The main story focuses on a group of scientists called the Earth Corps. An enormous monster, called D'Compose, is discovered encased in amber in the Big Sur. By taking him out, they don't realize that they have unleashed evil on their world. Following that, many more discoveries of grotesque monsters happen. Tendril and D'Compose are two of those eldritch abominations
. With the help of The Redwoods, they try to put down the monsters again.
The show in its day had a lot of Family-Unfriendly Violence
and remains a great source of scares. More importantly, it was an unusual kids' show for its use of good subplots, strong pacing and suspense.
