Kids draw a monster, and mysterious cosmic rays cause the drawing to come to life!  The Science Patrol is called in to destroy the beast.

not one of my favorite episodes, but it's kind of a touching one now that i watch it as an adult.  how often did you want one of your drawings to come to life as a kid?

it's popular now to look at Ultraman as the "bad guy" these days, since he usually was stopping a monster from destroying things, instead of realizing this is a forty year old show and monsters were not thought of "unstoppable forces of nature" or something.

Does the science patrol get extra funding for using up old ammo? Add the macho element and you have loooooots of urban destruction.

What happens when kids in Japan draw pictures of monsters on a piece of junkyard pipe when the earth is being bombarded by cosmic space rays?----,The drawing turns into The Real Thing!,--and I don't mean Coke-a-Cola!.

The kids name it Gabadon,it's first appearance is white,kind of like an amphibious Moby Dick.

Since all it wants to do is sleep,Ide says leave it alone,but our captain says it's the patrols duty to fight all monsters.So they and the army do,annoyed Gabadon moves on then dissappears after sundown.

After studying the situation,the patrol realizes it came to life because of the space rays.So Ide says just erase the drawing,they do,but the kids come back.

This time they decide to make it the thing lively and colorful,I guess they want the monster to destroy there homeland,this time the creature is more aggressive,the kids cheer it on ward towards Tokyo!,I don't know I suppose you just had to be there.

Hayata tells the kids to get out of the way!,they won't,let the monster live,and Japan be destroyed?!,---seems like it.

Hayata falls into the river,the kids & Gabadon----Cheer?!,go figure.
While being swept away the beta capsule appears above water and Hayata becomes Ultraman.

The monster's mad,they have a fight,the kids beg Ultraman not to destroy Gabadon,(our hero Ultraman?),so he takes it up up and away!.

Later that night the kids are sad,they miss there Gabadon,then Ultraman appears in the sky and tells them not to cry,they can see Gabadon in the every year at this same time,then for a brief minute they see star Gabadon,but until the mystery of the cosmic space rays are fully known,The Science Patrol will have to keep a careful watch on all monsters drawn by children.
