Mogwai and Gremlins might SEEM the most unrealistic little monsters ever to crawl out of the 1980s, but nothing could be further from the truth.
In this episode of Stuff to Blow Your Mind, Robert and Julie dissect Gremlin/mogwai biology and show you how all that melting and metamorphosing matches up with the rest of the animal kingdom.
Plus, you'll hear all about our own experiences owning pet mogwai during the 1980s... all the laughter, tears and accidental tanning booth horrors.
This one stems from "How Mogwai and Gremlins Work," so if you have any questions, do check out that article and its helpful illustrations.
