Spandules are a race of magical, sentient humanoid being.
Spandules are a race of sentient humanoid beings. They are said to be cousins of the Gremlins, and live 30,000 miles in the air, inside clouds, except in the winter time, when they come down to Earth to "have some fun". They are covered in thick hair to protect them from the cold, their faces are "rather like oxygen masks", and they are flat and thin to better withstand the pressure of the air. The Spandules feed on hailstone and are three times larger than ordinary Gremlins; however, they are weak to warm temperatures, where they can melt away into nothingness, leaving only their gloves and a few hairs.
The Spandules, like the Gremlins, are also known to destroy aeroplanes; however, instead of taking them apart mechanically like their cousins, they use their power of blowing snowy breath to freeze airplanes and their pilots. Also unlike the Gremlins, it appears destroying planes is “their very nature”.
By 1943, the government of the United States had apparently learned about the Spandules, and created an instructional booklet for their pilots on how to avoid the Spandules. Whether they came around before the end of the War like Gremlin Gus's Gremlins is, however, unknown.
