#99: LARGE MARGE
"Large Marge Sent Me"
words can make a barroom full of the most hardened bikers drop their
beer in fright.
preliminary list, I never even considered this freaky trucking babe
from PEE WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE, but with no less than 6
different emails pleading for her inclusion, I decided I could not
ignore her power. Here's just a sample of what I was told.
retroCRUSH Fan Mark Wesler writes, "When I first saw Pee Wee's Big
Adventure and saw the scene with Large Marge, I nearly pissed
myself! Laughing! She's scary enough as it is, with her mannish
posture and flannel shirt. But once she goes nuts and makes her eyes
pop out and shit...you know you're dealing with the real thing."
retroCRUSH Fan Daniel Held says, "As a child, there was one monster
that haunted me in my sleep. Probably the most overlooked monster
of the 1980's, she made her first (and only) appearance in that
lovable flic "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure". That's right ... Large
Marge! This Claymation creature was by far the most frightening
thing I saw in my entire childhood (not counting the sequels of TMNT).
Even now, every time I watch this movie, I have to cover my eyes in
fear. That's why I think Large Marge should be a part of the Top
100 Monsters. If you don't believe me, Large Marge will get ya!
(At least it worked on my younger brother.)"
she's only in the 1985 Tim Burton film for about 3 minutes, her
impact has been felt by many.
there's not much information about her out there with the exception
of the great picture you see above and below. In fact, most
searches for information on Large Marge end up getting you porno
sites that feature naked fat girls. Alice Nunn, who played Marge,
was in a handful of movies and TV shows (including Tony Orlando
and Dawn, and Petticoat Junction).
Man the more I think about her, the freakier she gets! Shit, that
Large Marge is one spooky ass chick!
