we get to see some clips of Andy vs Jimmy here, and one of Jimmy's goons (Sweet Daddy O) comes in to help him stomp away at Andy. the crowd doesn't seem to be on either's side at the moment, which is no surprise. so Andy turns to Jerry for help.

this movie for the first in the early 90s, back on TNT's fun MonsterVision show. I'll only bemoan the station TNT has turned into now once, as it's nowhere near as much fun as the station it used to be. I liked it for what it was back then, which is a low budget B picture. I hadn't seen it in several years.

here we have Andy going on a tirade against both Jerry AND Jimmy, which leaves the studio crowd a bit perplexed. they aren't quite sure who they should cheer for, hating both individuals equally. the interplay between Kaufman and Hart is great. mostly the crowds wants to see both filthy foes annihilated! they are great heels.

THE MONSTROUS MASTER PLAN OF THE MANDARIN
this 49 page story stars all the former Avengers except the Hulk. I reckon since they had both Thor and Hercules here Roy figured they didn't need to have any more sheer muscle in the story.

this is pretty cool, and I'm sure it worked for me at age 13. Godzilla gets most of the screen time, which isn't surprising since I'm sure his licensing made NBC and Hanna-Barbera want to get their money's worth from the ratings and such. interesting to see the Earth Eater as the first monster for Godzilla... I haven't seen Jana of the Jungle in years, and am surprised at how much it resembles Filmation's Tarzan over on CBS, right down to the way Jana swings on vines exactly like Tarzan. they use the exciting Godzilla theme throughout the entire preview.

this is a pleasant enough little time waster, with the chutzpah to actually give us a pretty good look at the monster from time to time. in fact, we see it right away, in the first five minutes, which is a good way to get my attention.

here's the 50' version of the fourth Godzilla movie. I owned the 200' version back in the day, and watched it quite a few times. the strobing effect that Tsuburaya used in part of the fight was fascinating to watch this way. as I've noted elsewhere, this was a very disappointing movie for me when I was younger, since I expected lots of monster wrestling shenanigans and got a much more serious movie. ah, youth!
