ULTRAMAN - Mystery Comet Tsuiphon / Toho Company - 1966

Welp, the world's supposed to end today, and, I swear, there was a small earthquake here yesterday afternoon!.. Big deal, the world's not ending today, relax and spend some time with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. We gots a wild 'n' weird episode from this great series where our hero has to fight off three monsters, not just one!

Eegah!! sent us over a soundclip for our enjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located directly across from the glowing towel rack, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's our audio offering for... ULTRAMAN!

The story's about a comet that comes dangerously close to the Earth, and, the heat and radiation may cause unexploded nuclear warheads to detonate. When The Science Patrol search for a bomb they can't locate it, then, find out that a monster has it stuck in its throat! The Science Patrol and Ultraman end up facing off against three monsters that are in the midst of a Royal Rumble battle.

The Science Patrol, with the help of their super computer, detect that Comet 24 will miss the Earth by only 22,000 miles and may cause some unforeseen problems...

So, the Science Patrol go out patrolling in their famous rocket plane.

Luckily, the comet passes by Earth without any loss of human life, everyone's relieved, they thought it'd be a lot worse!

The Science Patrol encounter a giant snow monster while searching for a lost bomb. I love this monster, it's a real crack up!

All monsters were produced by Toho artists, so, I can tell you that this flying monster here is a remodelled version of Gigan.

And, this thing is a version of, obviously, Godzilla!

I dig shots like this!..

Ultraman gets big and battles the bunch of brawling, bullying brutes!

Hiroko Sakurai plays Space Patrol member Akiko Fuji, she was also in five other Ultraman series.

But!.. Comet 24 will appear again in the year 3122 on July 2nd at 8:00 am, so beware!!
