What does The Mysterians have to do with Hitchcock? Nothing, other than both raking it in for MGM in the summer of '59:

Ads for some later DCA releases have "From the company that brought you Rodan;" the late '50s and early '60s could be considered the golden age of these movies in the U.S. In May 1959 alone three major studios in Hollywood released three of Toho's tokusatsu films.

Didn't "Rodan" actually make more at the box office than any other kaiju import in the 50's and 60's?

^ I've heard a couple of times that Rodan was the most theatrically successful one in the US.

^ Don't forget Rodan, Gargantuas, and Frankenstein CTW included with the 'Saperstein 5.' A better block of syndicated Kaiju material didn't exist in the 90s! Those were the ones that showed up on MonsterVision.

I know a LOT of people have fond memories of Godzilla and other Toho Kaiju films in the 90's with TNT and Sci-Fi...however.... I still believe the best time was in the 80's when these were sold as packages to independent stations and shown in syndication. I pretty much got all the Godzilla films recorded to VHS except for GRA (which i did not see until Goodtimes VHS release in 1989), and DAM, which oddly disappeared form Bay Area channels in the early 80's, but still played in other markets.

My first exposure to Godzilla films on cable was in 1987 on WTBS (now just TBS), Grampa Munsters Super Scary Saturday. They played the Saperstein 5 along with Rodan, WotG and FCTW, and some other horror/sci-Fi mixed in for good measure. Watching this, along with NWA (later WCW) rasslin' made for quite some entertaining Saturdays.....

But still, having unique independent broadcasts were how I got some gems like Dagora, Matango, and the non Sandy-Frank Gamera's.... 8)
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

I mean, if that's not Biollante, the resemblance is uncanny.

^ Considering that art is by classic X-Man artist and avowed Godzilla superfan Art Adams it asduredly is a Biollante homage.

But is it a tiny Biollante or an enormous Wolverine?
