YouTube user ultramanvszetton makes oddly compelling Ultraman movies using action figures, stop-motion animation, and sound effects, such as The Return of Ultraman and Ultra Seven Vs. Bado Alien. YouTube user Goji73 has created an entire series of web videos using action figures called Godzilla and his Amazing Friends (there is some crossover between Godzilla and an Ultraman spinoff called Daikaiju Battle).

what then

People will make mash-ups of the mash-ups they watched when they were children. Eventually, they will distill things down to their essences, and we will see the rise of a New Era of Sincerity, which will be followed by a New Era of Kitsch, and the cycle will begin again.

Ack! Word segmentation error! I had myself briefly convinced that manvszetton had to be something in Hungarian.

At a quick glance, I thought the fourth link read "Ultraman Vs. Steve Allen," and I thought Ultraman might not be a match for the latter's Keyboard of Facile Songwriting.

My kids love Ultraman and there are still new Ultraman movies, and the occasional tv series, being made.

The other half, peering over my shoulder, "Why is that vagina scorpion attacking him?"

Then the thing queefed on Ultraman.

No further communication was necessary nor possible.
