Quotes

Mel Hunter: Agent Bill Winters and I had received word the night before to report to the commissioner's office next morning. As usual, I traveled strapped in my chair in a specially constructed attache case chained to Winters' wrist. In this world of giants surrounding me, it was the safest mode of travel. The half year of constant peril had taught me the hard way how dangerous even a great gust of wind can be to a man six inches tall. I had to be on guard every moment.

I Remember This!!
16 April 2007 | by (Indianapolis, IN) – See all my reviews

GOOD NEWS!! SOMEONE HAS SUBMITTED A PORTION OF AN EPISODE ON YOUTUBE!!! SEARCH WORLD OF GIANTS AND YOU WILL SEE IT!

I have vague memories of this show, but I do remember it. I, too, had searched for information on it and was beginning to question my own memory, until I found something that validated the fact that this show did, in fact, exist.

I distinctly remember Marshall Thompson as the main character, because my dad was always a big Marshall Thompson fan. (He always enjoyed the Daktari series, which I didn't much care for.) It's funny reading what others have to say about this series. My memories, too, are vague but vivid. I remember outdoor scenes from this show, but not what the action entailed. I remembered the suitcase, of course, but forgot about the house behind the painting.

I must be having a mid-life crisis, because I've been searching out things I saw as a small kid. "King of the Rocket Men" and "Cat Women of the Moon" are two other sci-fi curiosities that I have vivid memories of as a kid.

Isn't getting older weird?
