When Adam and Barbara died, they returned to the house. Adam decided to walk back out the door, but the outside world began changing into a dark night in a sandy location. Adam heard a strange roaring noise and saw a coil sticking out of the sand, but Barbara pulled him back inside.
Barbara walked out of door and fell down to the sand, quickly becoming lost. When she and Adam found each other, the growling noise became audible, and a sandworm popped out to eat them. Barbara hit the sandworm, causing it to shake its head for a moment, but then it moved as if to eat them again. Adam and Barbara quickly went back through the door, closing it for safety.
In the second appearance, Betelgeuse had sent Barbara back into the realm of the sandworms. Appearing visible furious, Barbara rode the sandworm back into the house, causing it to crash through the ceiling and swallow Betelgeuse. Barbara then jumped off and the sandworm crashed through the floor.
While they don't speak, there is an interesting cartoonish reaction when one is hit. They appear to have a personality not unlike an unruly dog.
Sandworms live in sand all their lives.
Sandworm from the Animated Series
For more information of the animated version of this character go to the animated article.
- There are real sandworms, but they are nothing like their movie and cartoon counterparts.
- The sandworms are based on the different ones from "Dune" (1984).
- Barbara riding the sandworm is probably another nod to the tradition of sandworm-riding in "Dune".
