114 METRO MONSTER

Postby jeffbert » 8 years ago

This episode may have lent inspiration to the 1980s RUNAWAY SUBWAY TRAIN; & is only 1 of several episodes about trains in this, the 3rd season.

Image

Image

Image

Image
Ochanomizu is showing Atom & Uran the city's massive subway system.

Image
These two are just bored, & looking for fun.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
A couple of punks ripped-off my cap!

Image

Image

Image
"Surrender, you fiends!"

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
"I coulda had a V8!"

Image

Image
:tezuka:

Image
Again, this scene of a crowd fleeing in terror. :p

Image

Image

Image
"Game over, man! Game over!"

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
"My precious!"

Once again, Dr. Ochanomizu uses his ECTOPSYCHOSCOPE, but--

Image

Image

I have only a vague idea of what happens next:
Image

Image
It appears these people have been knocked-out, but I do not recall why.

Image

Image

Image

Now, we see the readout of the slug fragment's memory:
Image

Image

Image

Image
This explains the slug's behavior.

Image
I cannot understand why they must risk children's lives in the battle against the slug.

Image

Image
This frame, especially, lends to the 1980s episode I mentioned.

Image
Who would have thought they would use this?

:lol: :heart:

Giant snails? AGAIN??!! :eek:

I wonder why Astro just didn't go get a big bag of salt, like in "One Million Mammoth Snails!!" I guess this must have been one that got away!! :lol:

That picture of Dr. Elefun as a baby is a RIOT!!! :w00t: Poor little thing!

Thanks Jeffbert, these glimpses into the "unseen" adventures of Astro Boy are really wonderful!! :heart:

Funny, that monster in the subway tunnels reminded me a lot of the beginning of Men in Black II. Can't believe I still remember that film.

I love the scene with the ectopsychoscope showing Dr. Ochanomizu as a toddler, and Astro & Uran laughing at him. :lol:

The episode is like a blend of 'Gernica' with 'The Runaway Subway Train'.

Thanks a lot for these, jeffbert (as well as for the many other episodes you cover). If you keep going like this, I'm going to have to buy that 1960s boxset! :lol:
