Not Yeti Friday

Today we're going to look at Green Yeti. Green Yeti are, by definition, not yeti.

Brobee is from the kids show Yo Gabba Gabba!.

If a yeti comes from outer space, you know it's green.

This is the artist Kronk's thank you card.

This is so far from yeti I don't even know what I'm doing. It's the mascot for Stanford University. It's actually a tree.

I thought I'd gone off the deep end before with the tree, but this just takes the cake. Astronaut Jesus has been flocked giving him that fuzzy texture.

I will quit now. Have a good weekend.

Can't get enough of that Biskup Yeti

Gromy attends a video game development school in France and on his class blog, Des Yetis dans la brume, you can check out some of their school projects which feature yeti.

Here is an animation he made with his group.

Don't know if it's worth watching, but here's the episode of Felix the Cat where he meets the Abominable Snowman.

I love Mii some yeti

If you own a Nintendo Wii, you can make a yeti Mii.

Use these instructions.

Do you know what this means?

Yeti play you tennis!

Here are the games that can now star the yeti.

Yes, even Super Mario Smash Bros. Brawl!

You will be able to battle the IMPOSTER.

Assert authentic yeti dominance over "alternate color schemed" frauds.

Ham Yeti

Greg Ham is the man. Obviously. You can just tell. Look at his yeti.

Yes, I admire him. Now look at the rest of his work.

Who do you think will win? It's going to be something to see.

Two Cryptomundo blog posts from Loren Coleman well worth checking out:

Marx Yeti

Quoting Ozzie's Robots (and stealing their photo):

"Made in 1963 the Marx Abominable snowman AKA Yeti is one of the Staples of both battery toy & monster toy collectors. Great action include walking, stopping , raising arms & letting out a piercing screech ! Very amusing !!"

It's one of the first depictions of yeti being white-furred, three years after the 1961 Bugs Bunny cartoon and a year before the "Rudolph, the Red-nosed Reindeer" holiday special.

There's video footage online of this rare, collectible toy in action!

Yeti Works, cont'd

More creations by Yeti Works!

See more pictures here.

Good news if you covet their plush yeti:

"We hope to have some plush Yetis in production eventually; currently we are still working on patterns and material selections. And we love our furry prototypes so much, it would be great to one day make them available to others!"

In the meantime, they've got buttons!

In only 8 hours...

"lpfsh" of Warren, OH submitted this for a Halloween Costume Contest.

Nice job, "lpfsh"!

Yeti Works

At Yeti Works, you can buy buttons, many of which have yeti on them.

This advertisement features a rather fetching yeti plush doll, which does not appear to be for sale.

Pokecheck the yeti is the mascot of the junior ice hockey team The Saskatoon Blades of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

According to his web site, Pokecheck was found by the coach of the Blades encased in a block of ice in the Himalayas during his annual ice harvesting visit.

He is named for the hockey term for using one's stick to push the puck off an opponent's stick.

All of this talk of sticks and blades makes me think of STAVES!

The Children vs. Yeti

This commercial educates youth in effective yeti defense.

Eating Cheerios will give all children the "Go-Go-Power" (i.e. inhuman super-strength) to create giant snow balls to hurl at attacking yeti. Individual snow balls will do little to stop the unbridled fury of a Himalayan Man-Beast. But by using teamwork, the children will discover that combining the mass of two snow balls will weigh the yeti down, thereby causing it to crash through a layer of thin ice into frozen water, where it will be encased inside an ice cube. Thus, the yeti is immobilized and forthwith defeated. Al children rejoice in delight. Breakfast (and to a lesser extent, teamwork) save the day.

Please note that the yeti was disguised as a mountain before its surprise attack.

This is an attribute of yeti worth noting, so please do so.

Be highly suspicious of any mountains. Watch them carefully for signs of yeti-ness.

Strange Cases

Strange Cases # 3 has yeti and they look mean.

This issue contributes to the List of Everything Yeti Has Ever Said.

Check it out:

Please add RRRARRGGH!! and GRAAA! to the list.

GRAAA is very close to GRRAAA which was said before.

To see and read a lot more about this issue, check out:

Donkey Kong got white fur?

Donkey Kong in the new Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Wii is brown.

Except here in this image he is white like a certain Himalayan Loner I could name (and do, often). Anyone know why he's white? All other images of him from the game depict him in his normal ol' boring brown hue.

Who is Xemnu?
Looks like a yeti to me.

(Above: John Byrne's illustration from the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe.)

He's not. He's a villain from the Marvel Comic Book Universe - an evil, psychic alien criminal from another planet.

Xemnu was originally known as The Hulk.

Then, he was The Living Titan (- to distinguish him from a dead one, I suppose).

He had to change his title when he battled The Actual Hulk. But he was always good ol' Xemnu.

He was clearly very powerful, though his plots were strange. For instance, one time he wanted to steal the Earth's children... Oookay.

When he went up against She-Hulk, they apparently performed ballet. Some kind of warthog-headed man was jealous. "I HAVE NO MOUTH AND I AM MEAN!!" was all Xemnu had to say on the subject.

Despite his lack of a mouth, the fans still love him. Someone made him into a cuddly plush doll.

Someone else made him into a micro-man.

And even an action figure.

Here's what I've learned about him from reading his Wikipedia page and another site about him:


  • He can project a "Mento-Blast" into his enemies.

  • At one point, he was the star of his own children's television show. It was called "The Astro-Nuts" and the kids loved it (probably because Xemnu hypnotized them). He played himself, an alien from the Magic Planet, and had an astronaut side-kick.

  • He's often in gaseous form between maniacal plots.

  • For a little while, he was a teddy bear in a giant alien's toy collection.

  • He can control billions of people with his mind.

  • He converted She-Hulk into "She-Xemnu" once.

  • He's obviously had quite a life!
  • Morlocks = Yeti?

    What is a creature that lives in dark caves, is covered in white fur, has blue skin, and eats people?

    If you guessed "The Morlock" from the movie "The Time Machine", you guessed right.

    But if you guessed "yeti", then you're a winner as well. Probably more of a winner, but let's not let the Morlockers feel inadequate.
