Performers, Cast and Crew:
Two episodes of sci-fi insanity, including:
INVADERS FROM SPACE: From the Emerald Planet in the Marpet Galaxy comes a messenger to warn Earth of an impending invasion of Slamander Men.
ATOMIC RULERS: Like a Japanese Superman, Starman (aka Supergiant) dons tights and cape to battle the forces of evil. Several dubbed Starman episodes appeared on American TV in 1964. In this episode, he thwarts an American gangster who threatens Japan with an atomic bomb.
Description by Image Entertainment:
He's back! Starman, "the creature made of the strongest steel," fights monsters, chases flying saucers, and defeats evil-minded aliens in two deliriously surreal mixes of science fiction, surprisingly moody photography, and wild superhero action! Wanting the Earth for themselves, scaly-skinned Salamander Men from the planet Koolamon begin eviction proceedings by assaulting humans with their radioactive breath, a space virus, high-decibel sound waves, a salamander nurse with a penchant for scaring kids, and most fiendish of all, a diabolical dance company! Thankfully the Emerald Planet sends Starman, their cosmic crusader in bulging tights, to stop the amphibious Invaders from Space. As expected, Mr. Starman turns from peace-loving-alien-and-friend-of-children-everywhere into a frenzied karate machine out to kick reptile butt! Then Starman worries that nuclear radiation may "poison outer space" and tries to stop the country of Magolia from becoming the Atomic Rulers of the world. But, uh oh, after wiping out a nest of Magolian agents (who all dress like film noir gangsters), Starman is rudely arrested for murder! Worse, a Magolian nuclear weapon is stolen--by a bunch of little boys! Double wow.
