IT’S THE YEAR OF THE TURTLE (AT LEAST THIS WEEK)!!!
Get your New Year off to a flying start with a flying turtle, giant monsters battling, and the latest hi-tech hi-jinx this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN! Join UNCLE PETE and a slightly disappointed El Vato this week for the 1969 action-packed, alien filled, monster-stompin’ classic – Attack Of The Monsters starring that kid-lovin’, city-destroying turtle – Gamera. It also stars Nobuhiro Kajima, Miyuki Akiyama, and Chrystopher Murphy as Akio, his little sister Tomoko, and his friend Tom. The kids spot a flying saucer land near their home while scanning the stars one night with their telescope and when they find it the next morning, the boys go on board to investigate. It turns out to be a non-stop express to an alien world called Terra, located on the exact opposite side of the sun from earth. While on their way, their good buddy Gamera saves them from a meteor storm and decides to follow them along their journey to see what’s up.
They soon meet the last 2 members of an alien race looking for a new planet to take over and some brains to eat. They also meet the giant beastie Guiron, the aliens’ protector, who battles with bird-like Gaos. Meanwhile, back on earth, Tomoko is having little success convincing anybody that the boys were taken into outer space so it’s up to Tom and Akio and Gamera to try to save Earth. Also starring Eiji Funakoshi (who appeared in the original Gamera) as Dr. Shiga and directed by Noriaki Yuasa, from 1969, it’s Attack Of The Monsters!
UNCLE PETE, back at the VAULT, is deeply engrossed in trying out the brand newest internet sensation – Vito-net(tm) – an internet connection thousands of times faster than any other (even faster than El Vato), accessed by the prototype laptop he’s trying out courtesy of VITO GOLD ENTERPRISES ™. He manages to find some unexpected footage of himself, some other interesting tidbits and a whole passel of great Japanese music videos including some from the Polysics and The Plastics performing songs heard on The Uncle Pete Show on WHRW-FM. He also discovers that prototypes don’t bounce very good sometimes.
So grab a can of Toddy and tune in this Saturday, January 3, 2015 from 10PM to midnight on Binghamton’s channel 4, Sayre’s channel 17, and Corning’s channel 99 (in Elmira and Hornell too). Will technology replace El Vato? Find out as UNCLE PETE kicks off the new year with Attack Of The Monsters, the next feature presentation on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!
