159, Devil and Angel (--, --)

Postby jeffbert » 6 years ago

This is another intelligent plant story, but also includes the element of genetic engineering as in #80, Humanoid Bill (71, Mighty Minute) & Bagi. It seems the emphasis is on the folly of scientists creating things, especially sentient beings, with no thought for their welfare, only caring that they can create them. For that matter, Both Atom & the Frankenstein monster fit the category.

Image

Image

Image

Image
This is Botanist Leaf, he has created several new species of plant,

Image
including this one, Zaboa, a carnivorous one.

Image

Image

Image

Image
This is Freru, she & Zaboa are sister plants; literally, Dr. Leaf's daughters.

Image

Image
Freru considers the broken flower a fellow plant, & is rather emotional about it.

Image

Image


Image

Image

Image

Image
Compare Freru to Bill (Minute); both must spend time sealed under a glass cover.

Image

Image
Leaf has invited Atom & Ochanomizu into his home, to show off his creations, but they are observed by Norse Necktall (called Snoopy Scoop in the ELV episodes) because as a reporter, he is a nuisance. He will follow them.

Image

Having had enough of Necktall's questions, Ochanomizu is closing the scene:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
:lol:

Image

Image

Image

Image
Norse has just used his flash camera, & Zaboa did not like it! As a carnivorous plant Zaboa has the ability to catch prey using hypnosis.

Upstairs, Leaf is still showing his creations:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Asked to explain how he came to be unconscious in Leaf's basement, NN tells his tale:
Image

Image

Image

Image
To think they say that smoking is bad for our health! Anyway, Zaboa was very upset, & went crashing through the wall, & is out wrecking the city.

Image
I could not find the duck or any of the others whom one would not expect to see in such a gathering, though they did appear in earlier episodes. :cry:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
This is one of GRUMPY's few roles as a good guy. Atom calls him 'SHIGUN-DONO.’

Here is a CROWD FLEEING IN TERROR sequence; these are the same people who fled in episode 1, & in many others as members of both sexes, adults & children, though here, & in #19, Atom versus Garon (Cosmic Giant), they are soldiers. Note the sizes of them, & that one carries a purse!

:p Zaboa shoots laser beams & flies. :lol:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
I assume Leaf' dying words were regret for having played God.

Image

These next two images-- :blush:
Image

Image
Freru is obviously leaning on Atom for emotional support, but--

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
I assume Freru died because she had been out of her glass case for too long.

I can just see someone photoshoping Atom's face with a different expression here. Someone with a slightly sick mind. And you know who you are!

BTW this was at least the second time Tezuka had "plant" people in a story.

Zaboa looks kind of like Hedorah in a way.

Thank you for all the wonderful 60's pictures you keep uploading Jeffbert! Sometimes stills can provide even the bigger emotional impact than the actual animation! :) :heart:

I really didn't need to read this. And in case you were referring to me by saying "someone with a slightly sick mind", you can rest assured I wasn't ever going to post anything related around your lines. Thanks for completely destroying a harmless and cute frame.

I'm outa here.

Strange Wings@ I certainly did not have you in mind, and I'm sorry if my reaction to Jeffbert's comment wasn't taken in humor as intended.

Sorry you took offense, Strange Wings, but even Jeffbert posted a :blush:
-- certainly it was innocent, but certainly it was :blush: too!

And I absolutely wouldn't have thought of YOU as the person to do the Photoshopping! I think I know who was being thought of . . . :whistling: but I won't post the name here, and NO we don't want to see it!! Bring it to TIE 18+ forum, thank you very much! :d evil: :rolleyes: :lol:

Thanks Jeffbert - I actually watched this episode, and it certainly is wacky. I love when Elefun lost his nose! There also seem to be a number of "monsters" with their eyes on their chests like the beasty in this episode. Very bizarre, indeed! :eek:

I noticed those frames when I previewed the episode, and laughed out loud. :lol:


I'm sure it was all in innocence, but that's where censors can actually be helpful. You can be darn sure that in the US that would have been clipped or modified. :rolleyes:

There are LOTS of these goofies, as well as other animation errors. It's fun to spot them. This one is a real classic. :p
