Frank Conniff ...


The Mads force Joel and the 'bots to watch Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973), the cheesy Japanese monster mash featuring Godzilla's infamous flying kick. It also features characters endlessly running up and down a long flight of stairs, a young boy in desperate need of pants, a giant bug, a robot that looks like Jack Nicholson, a hairy man in a toga, a creature with arms that look like two Chrysler buildings and female dancers whose costumes seem to have been inspired by the KKK. Meanwhile, Joel and the 'bots introduce the show in a cheesy showbiz style. The Invention Exchange features clever Halloween costumes. The 'bots argue over their monster drawings. Rex Dart, Eskimo Spy, gets his own trailer. Orville Redenbacher gets mocked. Joel gives the 'bots new limbs. And Cambot rolls a sing-along clip with Jet Jaguar. Written by J. Spurlin
