I suppose I should explain the URL. If you're a fan of the show, especially the original 1967 incarnation, you'll recognize the name "mekkor"... the leader of a fleet of small but deadly robots that would've overrun Amzot had not the Herculoids finally defeated them.

Of course, I originally wanted the URL "herculoids.blogspot.com", but was told that name was "Not Available", even though entering that address into the browser returns a "Blog Not Found" message. Ditto "hercblog", "zok" and "tara". (In hindsight, I probably should've also tried "zandor", "dorno", "tundro", "igoo", or maybe even "gloopgleep"?) Still I wanted something distinctive yet easily remembered... by me, if nobody else. And the name "Mekkor" stuck in my brain all these years; so much so that when the idea finally struck me that just maybe YouTube might have some Herculoids episodes available, the episode "Mekkor" was one of the first I looked for. (I'll have more to say about the availability of Herculoids on YouTube in a future post.)

So anyway, "mekkor.blogspot.com" it is. You have to admit, it's a lot easier to type than the name of my other blog, "dcmstudiosonlinenews.blogspot.com"!
