ULTRAMAN: The Underwater Science Base / Toho - 1966

It's Friday wif' Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. We gots another wild 'n' weird Ultraman episode from the original sixties TV series, it's about a trip to the new Underwater Science Base and an attack from a giant monster drill fish, Gubira! Of course, our hero Ultraman saves the day once again.

Eegah!! sent over a soundclip of the classic theme, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there by the piranha tank, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's the... ULTRAMAN THEME!

Naturally, the Science Patrol use their cool rocket plane to get to the newly opened Underwater Science Base!

A little girl, Jenny, gets to go to the lab on the rocket powered submarine with the crew, they watch the sea life on the way there. Jenny likes taking pictures with her camera.

Hoshino's assigned to keep Jenny company, here, he tries to cheer her up after some problems arise at the underwater base. That's an ugly face we used to implement back in the day, you see, we had to know how to entertain ourselves without modern technology!

Jenny kicks their asses at cards!..

The lab is attacked by a giant monster fish and it cuts off the oxygen supply, everyone has to breath with oxygen tanks now.

The monster drills it's way onto land, it better be able to hold it's breath!! Love the bottom still capture, Ultraman tosses Gubira and it lands face down on a building!

Ultraman uses his shredding halo but it has no effect on the thing. So, he focuses his spacium beam on Gubira and blows it the Hell up, kaputski!!

Kids!.. Do your homework, OR ELSE!!..

What a great series that was! Looked forward to it everyday after school while growing up. Wish there were more like it today.
