Trivia

  • Upon designing the art for Creature from the Black Lagoon, the team was told they couldn't portray a likeness of actor Richard Carlson. John Trudeau has revealed, that in order to get around the legal matter, John had artist Kevin O'Connor take a picture of his then-teenage son and draw his face onto the translite as the leading man.
  • Creature from the Black Lagoon introduced pinball fans to the "Move Your Car" motorist. The impatient dot-matrix character also appears, and is referred to, by other Williams games like Judge Dredd , Scared Stiff, Theatre of Magic , Tales of the Arabian Nights ( Move your Carpet) and Revenge From Mars ( Move your Saucer).
