ATTACK FROM SPACE / Japan - 1965

Finally, here's our last installment of Starman, in this feature edited down from the Japanese TV series. One of the best ones, ATTACK FROM SPACE!

Dungeon Master, Michiaki Watanabe, did the great sci-fi music today. Some other interesting titles he worked on are THE GHOSTS OF KASANE SWAMP, BLACK CAT MANSION, FEMALE SLAVE SHIP, SINNERS OF HELL, QUEEN BEE AND THE SCHOOL FOR DRAGONS, INVASION OF THE NEPTUNE MEN, ATOMIC RULERS, INVADERS OF SPACE and YOKAI MONSTERS!

Lil Piffles the Gnat, Tabonga' smallest pet say he all ready to be pushing that big red 'GO' button for today' show! An'a one, an'a two, an'a way we GOOOO!!!.. ATTACK FROM SPACE!

Starts at the Emerald Planet, Starman is called on by the bla bla bla bla, bla bla bla... bla bla, bla bla bla!.. Super smart way to kill 10 minute at beginning of every Starman feature!!

Back at Earth, dudes prepare for space invasion they see coming their way in telescope by making spaceship!

Then, hoodlums on Earth start kidnapping certain important peoples!

Simple, yet, effective!

Starman pays the invaders' space station a surprise visit.

HAI-YEEEEE!!!..

Naziesque dudes from Earth also aid the invaders with their take-over plans.

Tabonga sez!.. Hubba, hubba!!

The Earth ship is forced to land on the invaders' space station.

Believe it or not, this is a firing squad line-up on the space station!! Now, that's creative.

But, Starman shows up in the nick of time!..

Poetry in motion! Ken Utsui is Starman...

The rocket takes off without the girl! What the Hell!! So, Starman flies her to the ship using his uncanny powers to travel through the universe, unscathed even!

Ken steers the rocket into position, ready to push a red missile launch button...

And, it's a direct freakin' hit!! The bad guys can say goo'night to everbloody, now!!

Goodbye, Starman, call when you get back to the Emerald Planet, so's we know you made it okay!! Love you!
