Over at “Forces of Good,” Stefan Blitz has posted his ten most favorite video clips of “Bigfoot Appearances.”
I note that only two appearances of the gathering, #1 and #10, can be said to be nonfiction. Most are popular culture icons, snippets from movies, ads, and reality programs that are entirely fictional. Nevertheless, it is a good little collection, and Blitz is to be congratulated for posting these YouTube-like clips all in one place.
Here is his list:
TOP TEN BIGFOOT APPEARANCES
Ah, the famed Sasquatch. Of all of my favorite crypto-creatures, you are by far my favorite. Luckily, the world of pop culture agrees with me! Therefore, I give you my ten favorite appearances of the legendary creature in popular culture.
1. The Grandaddy of them all: The Roger Patterson/Bob Gimlin footage that brought the big fella to the public eye.
2. Harry and the Hendersons: Sasquatch; Spielberg style.
3. The Six-Million Dollar Man: The Bionic Bigfoot
4. The Venture Brothers: See number three.
5. Bigfoot and Wildboy: Saturday mornings get in on the action.
6. Scare Tactics: Spooky candid camera.
7. Boggy Creek: Scary ass Bigfoot
8. Jack Link’s Beef Jerky: Messing with Sasquatch via clever advertising.
9. Tenacious D: Sasquatch – Crypto-Rock
10. In Search Of: Leonard Nimoy’s scientific investigations only propelled interest.Stefan Blitz at Friday, March 30, 2007

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
