This time around, the Phantom Militia plan to kidnap Professor Flasher
with the help of Tongasaurus, a giant robot vaguely reminiscent of a
brontosaurus but conceiling a silly looking tank in its belly it lowers
every now and again. Of course, Gentaro (Shoji
Ishibashi), agent for Professor Tsushima, and Iron King, his giant robot
guardian angel who's actually - unbeknowest to Gentaro - really his klutzy
colleague Goro (Mitsuo Hamada), manage to drive off Tongasaurus for
the time being.
But the Phantom Militia do not give up easily, and so they use Reiko,
wife of one of their agents, to lure Gentaro away from the professor with
a suicide note - but when Reiko realizes the plan actually works she is
overcome by her guilty conscience and gives away the Militia's plan -
which is unsurprisingly to kidnap the professor with the help of
Tongasaurus once again. Of course, Gentaro, with the help of his iron
whip, and Iron King ultimately destroy Tongasaurus and save the Professor.
Tongasaurus is probably the goofiest monster of the series so far, a
dinosaur that walks through miniature Tokyo like a drunkard with its head
aimlessly swinging about. And the tank it occasionally lowers from its
belly is a hoot all by itself ... and for that and that alone, this is one
of the best episodes of the series !!!
