The first thing you have to note: they pull of the slanted camera angle better than Battlefield Earth. The groovy music that kicks is while it happens is just a bonus.

From bad acting, bad writing, bad cinematography, and lines of dialogue a Wookie couldn't understand, add some meadow in the NW USA (maybe) somewhere. You put all of that together and you have Bigfoot and Wildboy.

The opening monologue from the announcer tells us that 8 years ago a boy was lost in the wilderness and Bigfoot found him. Wildboy is easily in his mid to late 20's so he was pretty much done with that phase of his life of living at home anyways, A wild boy has to set out to become a wild man I guess.

Wild boys talents can be described as thus: the ability to speak English, Being able to Machutmachunga, understanding Big Foot, and rolling out of the way of things.

Big Foot is.... well... he's Big Foot... No not the Monster Truck, the creature... He runs a lot...

Big foot's talents Include: He can say Machutmachunga, He moves so fast that he is shot in slow motion whenever he moves(?), He kind of roars or screams (I'm not sure how else to describe it), he can borrow sound effects from the 6 million dollar man, He can perpendicular on a mountain side (slanted camera, and He can Jump really far.

This show is like watching 1960's Batman with out the costumes, gadgets, or acting ability. You can tell this show wasn't taken seriously by anyone who made it, but that is part of the charm. If you want to watch something bad that will make you lol a lot at how ridiculous it is, then this show is for you.
