This is big…really big!
I’m talkin’ huge, camera-shaking stomping down the street big!
This is about five normal everyday twelve-year-old kids that transform into 100ft monsters that fight for good and defend the world from evil! As big as buildings! Fists that crush skyscrapers! Tails that crash down shaking mountains to their core! Body slams in the ocean that cause tidal waves!
Of course, it’s not all kicking big, giant, evil monster booty. Being really big monsters, our heroes can use buses as Q-tips (with all the passengers grossed out by the monster ear wax); they can use light posts as toothpicks, buildings as backscratchers, burst water pipes/fire hydrants as drinking fountains, buildings as projection screens to watch movies.
Hareold Fling is your average forest creature in Mid-evil England making an honest living selling fresh vegetables from a cart and as a part-time actor. Because of his good nature, and kindness towards others he is one of the most well liked citizens of Surewood Forest.

In an attempt to stop the Toad King’s Henchman from harming some children, Hareold Fling is beaten up and left for dead at the edge of the forest by the ocean. He’s found by a wandering fisherman who brings him aboard his ship. As Hareold is nursed back to health, they travel to different corners of the earth.

A while back my mom sent me some old photos of me on my first bike in Argentina and some pics of me with my banana bike back in the day in good ‘ol Cleveland. As a young boy in the 70s having a bicycle and not just any bike, a banana seat chopper, wheelie bike, was my elevation to independence. To ride with the summer breeze in my face anywhere and anytime without wearing out my kicks and in record time was the freedom I longed for as a boy.
