142 Minya's Star (-- --)

Postby jeffbert » 8 years ago

Image
This is essentially a rewrite of IVAN THE FOOL, but with Lamp's help, it becomes far more emotional than IVAN. Granted, Lamp is not the type of actor we associate with sadness, but I think many will agree that his performance is Oscar material. :p

Image

Image

Image
Here is our hapless reporter.

Image

Image
The captain.

Image
The boo-boo.

Image
The ensuing panic.

Image
The lifeboat.

Image
Three more castaways.

Image
Higeoyaji will not be among them.

Image
Atom & Ivan's new eternal companion.

Image

Image
& Lamp; bet you did not expect him to be an ojiisan! :p

O.k., all the player have now taken to the one remaining lifeboat.

Image

Image
This episode was not in the English language version, but if it had been, this would have been cut.

Image

Image

Image
I cannot remember why I included this image.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
"The air is all mine, get out there & suffocate!"

O.k., this guy picked up the pistol that Lamp dropped.

Image

Image
So far, this is a standard remake of IVAN THE FOOL; but there comes a twist. :astro:

I really have not been keeping track of how many remain, ASTROBUDDY. :lol:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
"It's a monster!"

Image

Here is where my questions begin:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Reel to reel audio recording in this future? :lol:

Image

Image
The prettiest Minya of all. For those unfamiliar with this story, Lt. Minya was the 1st person to land upon the moon, but her ship tipped over, & she became marooned.

Image

Image
She became ill, & died, but had instructed her robot Ivan to bury her in the grave in the background.

Image

Image
She had found two large diamond, & had attached them to Ivan's ears. But when he buried her, he put them in her grave.

Image

Image

Image

Up to this point, one might think that Lamp was merely moved by the tragedy of knowing someone had died on this moon or asteroid.
Image
After this, one may think that Lamp may have been related to Minya. I myself wonder about this, as he seems more emotional than he would have been otherwise.

In hopes of escaping this orb, :astro: had built a ramp to launch the lifeboat back into space. I do not know why they landed in the 1st place, & do not know about them gathering any more fuel, if that had been in short supply.

Image
Oops, somebody wreck my Lincoln Logs project.

Image

Image
In cartoons, the laws of physics are often disregarded; thus Atom heard this spaceship approach. Actually, I may need to watch this one again to be sure. :lol:

Image
##!!**!! I know I have seen this guy before, but I just cannot place the face.

Image

Image
Obviously the dirt bag has learned of the diamonds & the approaching rescue ship. Unlike other versions of this story (episode 10, & # 20/21 in the 1980s series) only the dirt bag scrambles to dig up the diamonds.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
I recall that Lamp dies here.

Image

Image

Image
In the end, the villain's greed cost him his life, though in this version, he had also killed Lamp. :cry:

Is Lamp a little more likeable in that version?

Does he come in a later episode (assuming they each are separate entities), or is it really the end of him?

Thanks for sharing, as always! :)

He, as this character, died; but not as an actor, though I do no recall whether he appears in later eps.
