TBRC on MonsterQuest Tonight

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on February 18th, 2009

On February 18, 8:00 P.M. (CST) the episode entitled Swamp Stalker will premiere, with a repeat showing later that evening at midnight (CST). The episode will also air again on History on February 21, 2009 at 3:00 P.M. (CST).

Swamp Stalker features two MonsterQuest teams comprised largely of TBRC investigators as they work to try to solve the enduring mystery of the “Swamp Stalker” in the Arkansas-Louisiana-Texas-Oklahoma region.

From History’s website regarding MonsterQuest: Swamp Stalker:

In the marshy swampland of Texarkana a legendary beast has hunted the residents of a small Arkansas town. Their story was immortalized in a well-known movie The Legend of Boggy Creek. The real events were a series of violent nocturnal attacks that left behind not only fear and panic, but also remarkable tracks. But the evidence is not just confined to history. Scientific clues continue to this day, and point to a malevolent monster that stalks the Deep South, with physical encounters by trained trackers and discoveries of tracks and scat. The strongest evidence will be examined using the latest scientific testing and two MonsterQuest teams isolate the search using both kayaks and horse-back, penetrating deep into territory that may be the home of the swamp stalker.

    Does anyone know if these are available streaming on the internet? They don’t seem to be on Hulu.

    Definitely improved over last year. It held my interest and the biggest factor is I didn’t doze off while watching.

    I can still remember attending the drive in movie in 71′ or 72′. My buddy and I would get in our sleeping bags up under the front end of his fathers pickup with just our shoulders and heads peeking out, the engine heat keeping us warm in the cold NEPA August night air. We jumped more than once during that movie and kept an eye on the tree line as the drive in was surrounded by the Allegheny national forest. Those memories just flooded back as I watch MQ and I enjoyed it.

    MQ, you are getting better.

    I have been a fan of ” The Legend of Boggy Creek” since I was a kid. I’m glad to see Monsterquest dedicate a whole episode to the Fouke Monster. I did notice that they did not once call it the Fouke Monster. Did somebody copyright “The Fouke Monster? I’m also glad to see investigators are still on its tail. Actually I jealous that I couldn’t be out there with them. I hope they do a part 2. Did anybody put two things together about the Fouke Monster and the Honey Island Swamp Monster. 1-Both have been reported to have three toes. 2- Both have been reported by gentlelmen with the same last name “Ford”.

    I made a trip out to the infamous Boggy Creek 3 years or so ago. Sadly, there’s nothing left there of note but a store selling souvenirs.

    Whatever was there (and I wholeheartedly believe the reports) has of course since died or moved on.

    Liked the episode. Very well put together.

  6. Doug responds:

    It was good to see something from my neck of the woods. When “The Legend of Boggy Creek” came out, I was but a lad of 12 or 13, and it immediately made an impact and I have been interested in the possibility of bigfoot type creatures since.

    Of course there was a lack of concrete evidence (as usual) but it was entertaining anyway.

  7. yungcrypto responds:

    Yeah I liked this episode but I still like the giant squid episode much better. They got some hard video evidence.
