There have been reported sightings of the Bagpipe playing Kilted Creature dating back to the Devonian Age. “KC”, along with his brother, “Creature from the Black Lagoon”, shared the same pond as tadpoles. The Kilted Creature left the pool at an early age and traveled up north where he ended up to Loch Ness, Scotland, where he also got his first set of bagpipes.

Fast forward to the 21st century and modern technology. On a more recent journey, KC happened into the “Claws and Dragons” Pub in Isle of Man, where he met a beautiful bar wench he calls “The Keeper”. They immediately had an animal attraction for each other and haven’t left each other since. Now living in the mountains of North Carolina, the Kilted Creature can be seen, along with his cute little keeper, and their love-child “Sgt. Tadpole at Arms”, playing his bagpipes well beyond the Black Lagoon.

The “Kilted Creature” pays tribute to the “Creature from the Black Lagoon” Universal Studios® Classic Horror Movie Trilogy.
