Eric Dwinnells is back to talk about
The Boogeyman as he's known in the US or
The Bogeyman as he's known in the UK. A boogeyman
is any form of a mythical creature used by parents to gain
compliance from their children. Sounds a little messed up, but in a
way, I suppose you could argue that Santa himself is a type of
boogeyman! Tonight Eric will take you on a world tour and introduce
you to some of the most infamous boogeymen said to inhabit this
fair globe of ours. He'll also tell you about the boogeymen her
feared as a child (including Disney's Mr. Boogedy,
Jesus, and the iron centipede at the "naught children's playground"
and magical thinking.
Monsters discussed in this episode include:
Saw Kaw (aka Gaw Gaw)
Bloody Bones (aka Tommy Rawhead)
The Small Man
The Gooseberry Wife
