At the Bainbridge Research Foundation, Professor Franklin Arnold, displays his creation, the Metalogen Man, a robot, to Professor Ernst and three other colleagues. Shortly afterward, the three associates are killed by Thor (Ray Corrigan, in his for-rent ape suit), a huge ape trained by Ernst, and Arnold, his daughter Babs and Ken Morgan, a representative of the company for whom the robot was made, find it has been stolen. Their 15-chapter search for Thor, the robot and Ernst leads to a series of cliff-hanging adventures as Ernst strives to gain control of the robot and the supply of metalogen needed for its production.

When I was thirteen years old, I doted on this serial, waiting anxiously for Saturday afternoon to devour the next episode, and playing out the episodes with my friends. I am now 69,but I remember the excellent acting of Ralph Morgan and George Macready. The plot and adventures were fun. The monster is a robot. Macready is a king of crime who wants to use the robot for evil. The cliffhangers were mostly laughable cheats. In one episode you see a stunned Robert Lowery on a moving track go through the doors of a crematorium furnace. In the next, he jumps off before he gets to the doors. Aside from that, lots of fun.
