The Science Patrol must lure Gabora away from the campgrounds where the Young Japanese Mountaineers are holding their annual jamboree, or else an entire generation of SAR specialists is going to end up in the unemployment line.

Dude! You shot right past the best part of this episode! It is strongly believed by some troubled souls that "Gabora" was in fact Godzilla making an uncredited guest appearance on the show. Sure, he's wearing a disguise, likely to divert the paparazzi and/or avoid legal trouble with his studio. But look carefully at "Gabora" after Ultraman has divested him of those sissy-ass petals and tell me he doesn't look a little--- familiar.
Okay, this is, not unlike the infamous "Two different endings shot for "King Kong vs. Godzilla", almost certainly the stuff of stupid-ass rumor. But I remember how excited I was when I discovered as a kid that it wasn't  just me and my friends who thought the resemblance between Gabo and Godz too strong to be coincidence.

Gawd, I'm old.........

Unfortunately, this is not the same episode you remember.  In the episode called "The Mysterious Dinosaur Base" Ultraman fights Godzilla (he is named something else), and the Godzilla suit did have flower petals around its neck.  Well, until Ultraman played "he loves me, he loves me not" with the monster.

Love that video clip - if I was an armadillo and somebody stuck a plastic cone over my head, I'd smash a miniature village too  Smile

I loved the Akira reference in the review, although slightly dissapointed that there was no "TETSUOOOOOO!" Shout...

I suspect that Kaiju Lore is a required subject in Japanese schools; that's why everyone knows the names of long-hidden monsters on sight. I suppose it's possible that everyone is supplied with a set of cards similar to the aircraft ID cards that were distributed during World War II--just match the silhouette to the monster!

That is an incredibly cool thought.  If they ever made a deck of "monster silhouette identification cards" I would buy them.

Typhoon 5 blast southern Japan,ah but the day after,have you ever seen such a beautiful day?!.

A time for the Boys Mountaineer troop and residents of the two nearby towns to clean up storm damage.

It may seem so but problems begin when the scout leaders discover the supply shed with food has been swept into the sea,so the two scout leaders head for town for food & supplies,ah the town was also hit hard,I don't know if they can spare any food and supplies right now.

Anyway the towns folk are trying to get things back in order but underground rockslides keep happening,why?.

We don't have to wait long to find out,the ground starts to open up and then suddenly out pops Gabora,a horrible thing that has it's face covered,(maybe for the better),it feeds on radioactive materials.It wasts no time in starting to have fun destroying the nearby town,then sensing radiation stored in the next town it heads there.

Our heroes The Science Patrol are called in to deal with the thing.

They know the only thing to do is get it in the mountains area,because the thing is radioactive and will explode like an a-bomb,but first they have to lure there,and save the town.How do they save the town?,are you ready,no fooling,with 3 giant hibachi lighters!.

They work but now it's headed for the Boys Mountain camp,the only thing to do is fix a radioactive capsule to a helicopter & fly over Gabora,Hyata flies it,Fuji & Hoshino go along for the ride,they see the two scouts,land the copter,Fuji and her brother lead them to safety.

As Hayata resumes flight Gabora finally reveals himself,and from his ugly mug starts firing rays,he hits the copter,it crashes,and Hayata finally uses the Beta Video,er I mean capsule to become Ultraman.

Again this was a short fight,but one of the better ones,finally Ultraman wins and everything fine,except the boys didn't get any food.

Oh just leave it to Hayata and the Patrol,they came through,one of the scouts said to Hayata,"Any ordinary man would of been in trouble when the copter crashed",Hayata says"Well who says I'm ordinary!",he's not!,for you see he is in reality,our hero Ultraman!!,though no one on earth really knows that.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
