Hook’s not the only one, you know...

SFX - - Reviews -

TEE HEE JOHN­SON Like Cap­tain Hook, Live And Let Die’s easily- amused hench­man lost a hand to a crocodile. He didn’t lose his sense of hu­mour, though – well, un­til Bond wiped the smile off his face by chuck­ing him out of a mov­ing train.

TRAP JAW Skele­tor’s cy­borg side­kick in He- Man had all sorts of arm at­tach­ments, in­clud­ing a flamethrower, a freeze ray, a tele­scopic grab­ber, a fire ex­tin­guisher and – our favourite – a fly swat­ter.

CANDY­MAN Clive Barker’s African- Amer­i­can bo­gey­man can be sum­moned by look­ing in a mir­ror and say­ing his name five times. For­merly a 19th cen­tury artist, he had his paint­ing hand cut off by an an­gry mob for get­ting a white woman preg­nant.

MERLE DIXON The Walk­ing Dead’s red­neck racist had to saw his own mitt off af­ter be­ing left hand­cuffed to a pipe on an At­lanta rooftop, which left him feel­ing pretty sore in more ways than one.
