Monster of the Day #506

Screw you, Robert Crumb! This sucks!

    I like how the actor is pulling on one of the Tonka trucks a little too hard and making is do a slight wheelie.

    When Korea went for it’s first Tractor Pull competition, it didn’t mess around.

    Ha, Mighty Gorga *wishes* it had this level of special effects.

  • Ericb

    I don’t think the Mighty Gorga was ever filmed from the waste down.  I think that’s a Hong King Tractor Pull for a beasty named after a fossil hominid (though how that fossil has anything to do with a giant gorilla seems to be a question the translators never bothered with).

    I caught this a couple of years ago.  I had a pretty good time with it.

    TMG also wishes it was anywhere this entertaining or good.

    If I’d had a gorilla suit when I was a kid I’d have done stuff like this every day.

    Mighty Peking Man – Everything you could ask for in a King Kong ripoff.  

  • Flangepart

     And that says it all!
    MPM- Not seen it yet, read the reviews, wanna see it riffed.

    Breaking. The authorities have the monster in their tractor beams. . .er, hold on. . .correction,  tractor team

  • Am I right in understanding “Mighty Peking Man” is the same film as GOLIATHON? If so, that’s a much better title than MIGHTY PEKING MAN! GOLIATHON at least sounds more like a Kong knock-off (or a Hercules-type affair). MPM sounds more like a paleontology documentary. Yawn.

    If nothing else, THE MIGHTY GORGA can at least boast a better cast.

  • The Rev.

    Yes, Goliathon was the American release title for MPM.

    TMG has a better cast?  I disagree, sir!  The guy playing Peking Man was quite a bit better than Gorga’s portrayer.

    After that, it’s more of a wash, I grant you.

    In later years, King Kong had to make ends meet by taking a job as a “truck walker”.
