163, Road to Another World

Postby jeffbert » 6 years ago

This is another episode that uses many clips from other episodes.
Image

1. guy in car chased (from 42, Yellow Horse):
Image

Image

Image

2. drops coin while car burns (from 42, Yellow Horse)
Image

Image

Notice the dark sleeve of the arm that grabs the coin:
Image

Image
:lol: The greatest stain-removing detergent in history! It was dark gray, but now: white!

Image

3. hieroglyphics (#58, Thirteen Mysterious Statues of God (42, The Island of Mystery)):
Image

Image

Image

Image
& also these, through this one.

4. Atom & Shibugaki at studios; Shibugaki bumps guy, who apologizes, & dusts him off (49, Transparent Giant (3D Tee Vee)):
Image

Image

Image

This one may be new:
Image

Image
Our favorite Yakuza is added to these clips from (49, Transparent Giant (3D Tee Vee)). :p

Image

5. CROOKS threaten TV director (49, Transparent Giant (3D Tee Vee))
Image

Image

Image

6. Skunk flips hat From 6, Lightning Man (7, Zero, the Invisible Robot):
Image

Image

7. nude suit (from 42, Yellow Horse):
Image

Image

Image

8. DRUG STORE, Pharmacist, etc (from 42, Yellow Horse):
Image

Image

Image

9. ROBOT BUILDING, dark corridor (from 42, Yellow Horse):
Image

10. button on wall, sliding door (from 42, Yellow Horse): no image uploaded. :blush:

Image
I think Skunk may have been added to that frame, but do not recall, it may have been a new one.

11. x-ray flashlight (from 42, Yellow Horse):
Image

12. Disintegrating Atom’s clothes (also from 42)
Image

Image

Image

13. trap door, goop, & escape from it (42):
Image

Image

Image
:blush: I admit that I neglected to note what was happening here.

Image

14. 14. whip-guy & punch counter; Woods visits Nada’s office, etc. (49, Transparent Giant (3D Tee Vee)):
Image

Image


Image

Image

Image

Image
All of the above comes from #49.

Image
I think this is new.


Image
Also #49.

To be continued--

To summarize the above, the guy was trying to escape with that mysterious coin, was killed, the cops recovered the coin, & began investigating. 考古学者の赤貝博士 (Kōkogaku-sha no akagai hakase / Professor Akagai, the archaeologist) with the big hair, is brought in to discern the coin's mystery.

I guess the part with Atom & Shibugaki at the studio is just filler, borrowed along with the following clips from #49; I really do not see any relevance with the crook confronting the director.

Next, the part beginning with Tawashi giving Atom a nude suit is so he can infiltrate the suspect business. I think it works well, here, though so far, Skunk's involvement seems out of place. After Atom confronts Skunk, he finds a reel to reel tape player, runs it, then flies away to the place where the whip guy attacks him. He is overcome, & stung many times until Higeoyaji comes & clobbers the whip guy.

After Atom arrives at the house in the next to last frame, he enters & as is obvious, is confronted by the villains.

Though many clips from various episodes are used here, they are not used in the same order as in their original episodes. For instance, the last frame here (& several the will follow in my next post) come before the whip guy's attack in the originating episode.

Thanks for the upload!

Poor Atom never seems to be able to stay undercover for very long in many of his adventures. I think his role in the episode titled Angel of the Alps was his best job at being under cover, and he didn't even have a false flesh skin.

I think that may be because the writers were different, or, perhaps, such details were omitted because of the lack of space in the episode. As I recall, that one had little if anything that was not related to the plot. Other episodes, such as SEA SERPENT ISLAND, had a lack of relevant content, & used dancing fish as filler.

Lol yeah. There are a lot of fillers in the 60's series. Though thier wasn't much fillers in the 80s series. I can only think of two.

It does certainly vary from episode to episode, I think it does have to do with writers and how well they are able to write an episode well with the allotted time they have. This would be called story-boarding in animation terms.

Maybe the story-boarder just didn't know how to make the plot relevant for the full 20 or so minutes for various episodes and they had to figure out SOMETHING to do to fill the time. Thus - filler.

At least in the Indiana Jones we had a translation. Not that it helped me a lot though :p
The real sign that someone has become a fanatic is that he completely loses his sense of humor about some important facet of his life. When humor goes, it means he's lost his perspective.
