Is there a list of all the characters in the Threadless "Mini Pixels" shirt anywhere online? Google searching is not turning up anything, surprisingly. I can recognize a lot of (most?) of them, but definitely not all. You can zoom in on this image of it. I am thinking of giving it as a gift but wanted to satisfy my curiosity first! There must be a list somewhere...

I've been searching for the name of a gothic horror movie from the late 60s or early 70s. A number of astronauts land on a planet that is populated by tall upside-down-carrot-shaped creatures that have an infrared eye. One by one the astronauts meet terrible deaths. One astronaut is burned to death by one of the carrot aliens in a very graphic way. Another walks into a sphere that appears near the space craft and is flash-frozen. I recall seeing this gore-fest on television as part of weekly horror/scifi movie time. The movie has some of the same feel as Journey to the Far Side of the Sun (1969). Does this movie sound familiar? Does anyone know the title?
