Animation: Lil Cthulhu

Lovecraftians rejoice! Thanks to Lil Cthulhu, it's much easier to initiate our young ones into the magic of the Great Old Ones! Animation by Zachary Murray with the voice of Erika Fontana. From the video description:
Meet little Cthulhu, who lives in the magic city of R'lyeh with all his friends, as you and your child embark on a fun and educational journey through the world of the Great Old Ones, meeting all kinds of new buddies from the Necronomicon along the way, from Azathoth to Yog-Sothoth! This series has won multiple awards and has been enthusiastically approved by the department of child-developmental psychology at Miskatonic University.

    1. @Trent Hawkins: Which Lovecraft story said Azathoth is asleep and the universe will end if he wakes up? I don’t remember that, and the wikipedia entry on Azathoth doesn’t mention it either…maybe you’re thinking of Mana-Yood-Sushai from Lord Dunsany’s “Pegana” stories, who was dreaming the universe and who was kept asleep by the drumming of the lesser god Skarl? Lord Dunsany was a big influence on Lovecraft and the idea of a lesser god playing music to lull a greater one might have inspired the description in “Haunter of the Dark” of “the ancient legends of Ultimate Chaos, at whose center sprawls the blind idiot god Azathoth, Lord of All Things, encircled by his flopping horde of mindless and amorphous dancers, and lulled by the thin monotonous piping of a demonic flute held in nameless paws.”

  1. Anytime you can turn a legitimate, soul shattering horror into a cute form that can be consumed whole in its sugary shell by the naive young’uns, it’s a good day.

    As opposed to the anti-Nancy Pelosi screed aimed at turning young, impressionable kids into Republozombies.
