King Liz?

She-Ra's season one episode "The Rock People" presents us with a large monster that exists in the Valley of the Lost. The very noticeable things about the design of this one-shot creature are the odd bone structures protruding from the top of his head. More amusingly Larry DiTillio had already specified the look when he named him King Liz! I always thought that this was such an odd name to give to a monster, but then Larry never tried to do things normally!

In addition to the many razor-sharp teeth of King Liz, the horns on top of his head put the icing on the cake when it comes to making the creature look frightening!

Who would have thought that, after She-Ra communicated with King Liz using her powers, the monster would turn out to be an ally to She-Ra? Fantastic voice acting from Lou Scheimer, expressing the thoughts of King Liz, for this scene. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

The horns on the top of the head of "King Liz" are something I wouldn't have expected to see. I would have liked seeing him in action...using said horns against an opponent.

We should get an interview with Larry at some point and ask about the name! LOL!
