Joel Robinson: What is it that you hate so much about Kenny?
Crow T. Robot: Oh, he's a child of priviledge and the whole world revolves around him and stuff and he can walk into a restricted maximum security military situation and they treat him like an adult just because he befriended a stupid old turtle.
Tom Servo: Yeah, yeah, yeah. And he never gets into trouble even though his friendship with Gamera is causing the death of *millions*. And he skips school whenever he wants to. And he never so much as gets sent to his room.

Without the Robots it's Just a Guy in a Rubber Turtle Suit
27 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is utterly unwatchable if you don't see the version with robots making smart-ass remarks during the movie. This movie teeters on the edge of so-bad-it's-good, but it never quite makes it over that edge. It took MST3K to figure out these movies were made for children, and I feel sorry for Japanese kids of the 60s. This first Gamera film introduces the character and is the only movie in the series where Gamera is the bad guy, although the annoying Kenny continually points out that Gamera is good (he destroyed a lighthouse and at least one whole city, you know, like all good guys do). We learned that the million-year-old giant sabretooth turtle consists on flames as it's primary diet. Flames. And we learned that in the old days, the world powers could work together and construct a rocket capable of firing a 100' turtle monster to Mars in a matter of days. Good times.
