5. Secret of the Miroganda
they find out the dead people were part of an expedition that brought a strange flower back from an island. it was subjected to radiation and is now mobile and after those aforementioned people.
this is one of the three episodes I saw as a kid, in February of 1979. I didn't think much of the episode then, but I really like it a lot now. plant monsters are so unusual it makes a cool change of place. Greenmons (such a name, right?) has a poison mist that can slow Ultraman down.
unfortunately the design is a little weak, it looks like a green mitten. overall one of the better first ten episodes.
