The mogwai wants a drink after midnight

MMDE: Spike

Current: Stripe

Remember the bad Gremlin from the 1984 Gremlins movie? Was he called Spike or Stripe? Many remember Spike, but watching the movie today find he was called Stripe.

There's a twist to this one. It appears so many people "misremembered" the name that the movie producers went ahead in 2016 and made some T-Shirts calling him "Spike". That's a great way to muddy the waters for Mandela Effect researchers!

People are reporting another reason he was called Spike - models of him today all have spikes on his back.

Big Hit

Gremlins was a huge success, and having Steven Speilberg behind it didn't hurt either.
