The Cyclops!

I remember seeing the 7th voyage on TV when I was about five years old. Without exaggeration, it was an experience that obliterated every preconception I had of the world up to that point. For years afterwards, I wondered what the hell that miraculous movie was, which I didn't even know the title to.

Luckily, Starlog magazine clued me in to Harryhausen in the late 70s/early 80s. Thanks, Starlog!

    That name has been bothering me since I first saw Monsters, Inc. Thank you for connecting it to something!

    You're welcome.

    I remember that reference too, but it just occurred to me that one of the lead characters of Monsters Inc was also a cyclops. So I guess it was a double reference, for both animated monsters, and cyclopses.

    Coincidence...I just bought Harryhausen's "An Animated Life" and got his autograph on my DVD of Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger.
