For every birthday-suit shapeshifter to appear on True Blood or denim-short teen wolf to pop up in the Twilight books, there are dozens of science fiction and horror narratives informing us that polymorphing into a marmoset, wombat, or whatever would legitimately suck. Here are ten squirm-inducing transformations that tattooed themselves onto our collective psyche.
This was an extremely short-lived television series about a shapeshifting doctor who uses his powers to fight crime. These practical effects transformations (by special effects legends Rick Baker and Stan Winston) were the highlights of each episode, so they were drawn out for the audience's maximum manimalistic pleasure. The Manimal notably turned into a panther and a serpent, and be sure to check out Manimal's Sam The Eagle face at 0:38.
