Parodies of the Spider-Man TV theme

I can't believe you didn't rhyme vassal with Drassil! That must sound terribly vain of me. It's just that I'm a 'carsul' man rather than a 'cassul' man. ;)

Do we want Fidjit back in place of Motley? Heck no heck no heck no heck no!

Good to see the reworked lyrics flooding in. Also pleasing to note that one of my songfics, Do They Know It's Quest Mess?, has become a fully-fledged recording under the auspices of Wall Aid 11.

Here are a couple of verses based the old Spider-Man TV theme:

Brollachan, Brollachan
Does whatever Rik Waller can
Sits on walls, hungers lots
Quite appals, should be shot*
Look out! Here comes the Brollachan

[*Merely referring to an encounter between Rik Waller and a paintball gun on TV last year. I don't want the lawyers on my back...]

Maldame, Maldame
Does what Malice/Morghanna may
Spied throughout Series Eight
Vied for clout, came too late
Time out! Here comes the Maldame

Parodies of Spider Pig from The Simpsons Movie

Post by HStorm » Fri Jul 13, 2007 11:10 am

Bit self-indulgent this, but, ah why not?

Phoenixflame recently showed me a clip on YouTube for the new Simpsons movie, with Homer carrying a toy pig around and singing, "Spider-Pig, Spider-Pig..." to the 60's Spider-Man theme.

This got me wondering if we could do the same for Knightmare characters. So I've come up with a couple. (I know, I know. I said it was self-indulgent...)

"Spider-Mogdred... Spider-Mogdred...
Necromancer with cap on head.
Casts dark spells,
Makes hollow threats,
Sounds so strong he gives us the wets.
Look out, it's Spider-Mogdred!"

"Spider-Lissard... Spider-Lissard...
Atlantean who finds diction hard.
Cunning cad,
Adores Lord F,
But struggles to pronouce letter S.
Look out, it's Spider-Lissard!"

"Spider-Pickle... Spider-Pickle...
Big green elf with lots of freckles.
Leaps about,
At awkward times,
Describes the woods in badly-scanned, excessively embellished and heavily overprolonged rhymes*.
Look out, it's Spider-Pickle!"

"Spider-McGrew... Spider-McGrew...
Burly Scotsman on Level Two.
Cast a spell,
He might serve you,
But make him mad he'll cleave you in two.
Look out, it's Spider-McGrew!"

"Spider-Scott... Spider-Scott...
A team who made mistakes a lot
Jumped a gap,
Fell off the side,
I heard a silly noise as he died.
Look out, it's Spider-Scott!"

*Self-parody!

Anyone else got some? Please join in!

Spider-Fear, Spider-Fear,
Technomancer with nasty leer,
Blabs his plans, scares his staff,
Gives the watchers a hearty laugh.
Look out! Here comes the Spider-Fear!

Spider-Folly, Spider-Folly,
Always laughing and ever jolly,
Patchwork clothes, green and red,
Jangling bells hang from his head.
Look out! Here comes the Spider-Folly!

Spider-Catacombite, Spider-Catacombite,
He only comes out at night,
Pointy teeth,
Scary eyes,
Probably not all that fond of pies,
Look out! Here comes the Spider-Catacombite!

P.S. I'm pretty sure that pig was real, not a toy, although I am very unreliable.

Manacles the man likes to fill.
In his irons,
You'll never be free.
Hear him cackle that it's "Luvly!"
Look out! Here comes Spider-Skarkill!

And now for something somewhat different... ;)

Knighty-fan, Knighty-fan,
Sits in a chair and shouts,
Tv crazed,
Eyes all glazed,
No DVD releases but they have a plan!
Look out, and run from, the Knighty-fan!
Carpe Diem - sieze the moment.

Wall monster with a touch of class.
Temper short,

Life force lost if you mock his name.
Look out! Her comes Spider-Granitas!

Cast a spell, trap a lord,
Win a quest, get reward,

Thanks to them, we've KM,
It's la creme de la creme,

Poor old Giles and his team,
Yuletide dented their self-esteem,
Look out! Here comes the Christmastime.

Helped a team out a proper pit,
Poison turned safe and clean,
Life Force turned red to green,
Go on! Spellcast the OPPOSITE.
