Dissecting the Banner - Harry and the Henderson's

 Lately I've been toying with the idea of creating a new 80s inspired collage type banner for the old Nerd Nook. I also decided that before I do so I'd go back to something I thought of doing a while ago..... I give you the first installment of what I'm going to be calling.....
Dissecting the Banner!
I figured a nice place to start would be with the above section. Any self respecting lover of the 80s already knows who this hairy fella is but just in case allow me to introduce Harry. Harry was the "big foot/Sasquatch" from the classics 80s flick "Harry and the Hendersons"

Growing up it was one of my favorite movies to watch over and over again with my bro. John Lithgow was great in it and it also starred Don Ameche. It's what you'd expect from the 80s. A fun family friendly flick that still holds up decades later and is undoubtedly loved and cherished by the "kids" (now old) who loved it! I knew old Harry deserved a place in my banner for sure!
Saw this guy at a shop last week. Totally wish I'd gotten it!

A personal favorite scene when George Henderson sticks up for his friend Harry
"my name is George Hen..."

 Perfect song and fitting ending to a true 80s classic.

So that's it for my first installment of "Dissecting the Banner". Stay tuned!
