Currently at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane they are showing a range of old school ‘monster’ horror films. So I bought a five day film pass to satisfy the horror fan inside of me, and the first film to see was Gremlins with the adorably cute Gizmo!
It struck me that Gizmo is very much like a koala – cute, small and cuddly and need to be treated with responsibility. So just to recap on those responsibilities: no sunlight, no water, and no feeding after midnight, all create havoc for our little Gizmo. In the film, when water is accidently dropped on Gizmo he multiplies and creates 6 more babies in a matter of minutes, which unfortunately all turn out evil. What about koala? They need their habitat protecting as they are a threatened species as their numbers are in decline.
So in a world where Koala meets Gizmo on a wet stormy night, Gizmo says to Koala “If only the rain water made you multiply”.
