I'll put a few feelers out there in my download sites i get everything from and see if I can get them on DVD or just the codes for everyone.

That would be great if you can....

there's also a guy selling all episodes on dvd right now on Ebay for $15.00 for the whole set.

I would be curious if anyone has ordered form the seller who sells this on Ebay. I would love to know the quality. I know they are from Public domain sources, like televison, so they will be at best, VHS quality, but the prices are great. I am interested in the complete Green Hornet and Complete Batman 60's TV show.

Gone but not forgotten.
The ones offered on ebay are lacking in quality - i think they're recorded from early broadcasts from WTBS, with small sections of the Japanese show edited back in - that had been removed from the American broadcast.

There's a lot edited from American showings - sometimes as much as 6 min. Anything that lead into the background of who Methuzala (the old man in the cave) and Rodak really were. Methuzala was supposed to be GOD - not A God, but the big G himself. Rodak's real name is Goa and he is even called Lucifer (in Japanese) i a few episodes.

So Funky Jedil...you were closer than I thought. Turns out I was watching RERUNS. That series (titled Ambassador Magma originally) actually started only 6 days before Ultraman.

However, I wasn't alive then. I guess I caught it when it was shown on TV in the us in 1978, when I was 3. (yes, I'm a freak and can remember things from when I was 2 and 3).

Thanks guys!



OMG!!! I have been trying to find out the name of this show for years now. I used to watch it all the time. And it is not strange that you remember events from 2 to 3 because I do too and this is one of those live action shows that I loved.

Thanks so much! I'm going to Youtube every episode I can find!

This has been bugging me lately, and I figured the knowledgeable folks on there migh be able to help me.

When I was a child, I remember seeing a live action show on television. Before you say "Transformers"...it was not. It was before Transformers. I think late 70's or early 80's.

There was a Japanese kid, maybe two, a boy and a girl. I seem to remember they wore school uniforms. There were a couple of robots that were also fighter jets, and when the jets went on their missions, the kids sat inside of them.

That's just about all I can remember (it HAS been 30 years after all). Does anyone have any memory of this show or knowledge of what it might be?
I just want to say thank you this same show had been bothering me for a while and when I searched and I came upon this website and your question, I was blown away. Thank you! Your memories of that show is almost exactly the same as mine. I remember that they lived in a mountain. They were giants. Also the sets and filming resembles Utlraman and Godzilla.

Again I just wanted to say Thank you. You made my search easy.
