Actually, it was on yesterday's date in 1966 when ULTRAMAN premiered in Japan spawning a franchise of spin-off series and feature film versions that still continues to this day. In my neck of the woods, it wasn't seen until 1969 or 1970 but it quickly became a favorite when it was!
Used to watch this on WXIX--greatest channel ever, btw! Loved Ultraman. A couple Christmases ago, my daughter and son-in-law got me the DVD compilation, so now I get to watch those classic monster-bashing battles all over again. Still love 'em!ReplyDelete
