Gentaro (Shoji Ishibashi), agent for Professor Tsushima, and his klutzy colleague  Goro (Mitsuo Hamada) - who unbeknowest to him is also his guardian angel, giant robot Iron King - decide to pay a visit to professor Fukunaga, who has invented a brainwave robot (whatever that is). But of course, the Phantom Militia is already on their trail, and before you know it they attack, helped by giant robot Jurass Don, a ball-like creature with a tiny head that shoots giant tiles from its body and can grow a second head from its back to better bite its opponents. And while Gentaro and Iron King are busy saving the town from Jurass Don, the Militia manages to kidnap the professor.

Soon enough, Gentaro and Goro have tracked down the professor, but they decide not to attack the place until the next morning, much to the dismay of the professor's daughter Michiko, who ultimately decides to save the professor on her own - which only results in her and Goro being taken prisoner as well ...

Of course, Gentaro ultimately manages to free the two and the professor as well, but then the Phantom Militia calls in Jurass Don as well, and soon enough, Goro (as Iron King) is busy fighting the giant robot while in the chaos that ensues, the Militia manages to capture Michiko, wanting to trade her in for the professor's secret. The professor sees that he is in a no-win situation and shoots himself as to not endanger others by his knowledge.

Of course, Gentaro and Irion King in the end manage to destroy Jurass Don, but it's a Pyrrhic victory ...


The story of this episode is pretty much tried and true and of only moderate interest ... but the whole thing is saved by another wacky giant robot/monster, Jurass Don, which quite simply has to be seen to be believed. Of  course, to really appreciate Jurass Don, you have to be childishly in love with wacky giant monsters like me ... but then again, is there any point in watching a series about giant robots at all if you're over 10 years of age ?
