Is the Matilda Bigfoot simply a Chewbacca costume


Many people with in the Bigfoot community have been debating the video supplied by the Erickson Project to the Sasquatch Genome Project lead by Dr Melba Ketchum of a sleeping Bigfoot nicknamed “Matilda“. Bill Munns has made some interesting comment on some creature images he believes to be that of Matilda and it possibly being a reworked Chewbacca or wookie mask and costume. Although there has been no confirmation that these images are indeed that of the Erickson Projects alleged Bigfoot some links seem to be present. One of the most respected members of the Bigfoot Community Jeff Meldrum has also come out in support of Munns conclusions. Meldrum says he had previous seen footage years ago while in Kentucky and says after seeing Munns chart the penny dropped. Here is the chart put together by Bill Munns comparing the creature images he believes is of the Matilda Bigfoot and the Chewbacca mask. Also replies by Jeff Meldrum and Finding Bigfoot’s Matt Moneymaker.


Here is Munns Matilda comparison Chart and comments !

The source the “creature” images never referred to it as “Matilda”, but the descriptions I have read about “Matilda” seem to fit what is seen here. To me, it is obvious tihs “creature” is simply a Chewbacca mask with the hair reworked to be a different color and texture. I welcome comments from anyone who thinks otherwise.

With this posting, I cordially suggest the following:

1. If anyone wishes to publicly acknowledge that this is their footage, I invite them to do so, and if they are correct, I’ll acknowledge it to be true.

2. If anyone feels the video frames show a real creature and not a Chewbacca mask, I welcome their analysis of why we should consider that to be so.

3. If anyone has seen the “Matilda” footage, I invite you to let us know if this is or is not the footage you call “Matilda”, because maybe what I’m looking at isn’t her, and I welcome being corrected if that is so.

4. If my display of this chart causes anyone to feel that they should file some type of civil action against me, please have your lawyer contact me at so we can set an appointment for my receiving the service of papers, and we can discuss the matter on the public record, in a court.

For the record, I will confidently and clearly offer an appraisal of evidence as being something real, if I truly find the evidence leads to that conclusion, and my appraisal of the PGF as being real supports that position. But as much as we must support what we find to be real or valid, we must also reject or discount what we find to be false or fake. Our obligation is to find the truth, and I think it’s time we all knew the truth about this “Matilda” thing. I finally decided it’s time I did my share to get the truth out.

So hopefully, someone who has seen the “Matilda” footage will tell us the truth. Is this her (pictured below), and is she real?



Jeff Meldrum comment on Munns Comparison

Appears Bill has gone public on this. He showed the comparisons to me during my last visit there. I had seen the footage briefly during my visit to Kentucky years ago. It was not what I would have expected and yet there was something familiar about it. Since I wasn’t at liberty to discuss it then and had no opportunity to review it, it was simply tucked a way in a vague recess of memory. When Bill showed me his chart, the penny dropped. It was all too clear.


Finding Bigfoots Matt Moneymaker refutes Munns conclusions and information: 

@DuffBrew85 That’s incorrect. It’s not a modified Chewbaca mask. It’s a real animal. Several people saw it in person, including Bindernagel.

Clarifications: 1) Camcorder used for Matilda face shot *not* Hi-Def. 2) Matilda never growled at camera operator. 3) It’s less than 30 secs
