The Hendersons, a Seattle family, are returning from a camping trip when their car hits an animal -- a big one. At first they fear it's a man, but it turns out to be a "Bigfoot," and it looks dead. George Henderson (Lithgow) suggests they take the carcass back to civilization -- maybe they can sell it to a museum! -- but once they're safely home, the creature awakes. He turns out to be friendly, and a vegetarian, and George dubs him "Harry." Unfortunately, they have to keep him hidden from the authorities, and even worse, a big game hunter who is obsessed with bagging a yeti. This pleasant, weightless 1987 comedy included David Suchet (better known as the BBC/PBS detective Poirot) as the villain, and Don Ameche as a sympathetic scientist named Dr. Wallace Wrightwood. It inspired a short-lived 1991 TV series.
