This was the episode of Ultra Q that assured me the series was not going to fall pray to the sort of repetitiveness that afflicted it’s follow-up series, Ultraman (and all the zillion Ultraman knock-offs).
Tonally, this episode was gonzo, a crazy, kid-oriented chapter featuring berserk kid logic. It has bank robbers, broad slapstick humor, and a kid (an outsider, constantly chided for lying) whose little pet turtle grows huge, and flies him–the turtle comes complete with a control panel–to an underwater kingdom where the kid meets a little girl fairy princess, or some damn thing.
As you can see from above, he eventually gets the Yosemite Sam treatment. These kiddies episodes were apparently requested by the network telecasting the program. They pop up every once in a while. Sandy reviewed one of them earlier this week.
