The Tongue-A-Saurus was conceived by LJN. They came up with the tongue-gimmick and created the character around it. Then it was passed onto Rankin/Bass to be used in an episode of the Animated Series; The Time Switch.


Whether you’re a Thundercat or not, Third Earth continues to be a dangerous place to live. Not only are the evil Mutants from Thundera hiding in the shadows, but there are also many natural hazards on this new planet, like the Tongue-A-Sauras, the giant, cold blooded eating machine. Once  your caught in the grasp of it’s “Wrapping-Snapping” tongue, the result is usually the same…a quick snack for the Tongue-A-Saurus!

  3. By turning handle left or right, tongue can be positioned to grab figure.
