The villain, mystery, and the technology
Trivia and curiosities
While the title is a parody of “Big Trouble in Little China”, its really a play on Godzilla, the oversized Japanese monster itself. Take away the cultural references and skits, “Big Appetite”, is an episode of unanswered mysteries that could have been told in six minutes. The technologies are beyond audacious that rivals Dynomutt, Dog Wonder. It is fast-paced with good comedic timing. It’s just the mystery that’s lacking.
