SPACE GIANTS was a Japanese import that was shown on WTBS in the 1960's and early 1980's. It was in the same vein as GODZILLA except way, way, more campy. (ie. there is a scene where two Japs are having a conversation in a room and one guy comments that he thinks the room is bugged, then there is an extreme closeup of a metallic robot insect bug on the wall.)..campy indeed. The planet is being threatened by a outlandish villian and only three giant robots that change into space ships can stop him. Like most Japanese shows each episode features Japs in costumes fighting over a scale model of Tokyo each week. Among the allies of the robots were a Jap scientist, his family, and a hot looking american woman....Each week they were endlessly pursued by the LUGOMEN. (If one shoots a Lugoman they melt). This was one of a slew of Japanese tv shows Ted Turner bought for a song in the 1960's and aired on WTBS in Atlanta. Produced by P Productions, Seven Arts Television, and Krantz Films, Inc.

    You are replying to a post that\'s almost 2 years old. So here I go replying to you replying to a 2 year old post.

    What krantzbucks was saying is that \"Jap\" is a term that is used to belittle a certain group of people that also includes Americans of Japanese descent. So why would it be unamerican to be RESPECTFUL to someone born in the US(as an American) whose parents or grandparents might have immigrated from Japan? Before you answer, remember that not long ago some of your ancestors also immigrated to this country.

    Oh yea, Even the remaining veterans of WWII show respect and dignity to their Japanese counterparts, and somehow YOU can\'t seem to respect some anonymous person posting on a website designated for fun!Hilarious!

    Lastly, any hateful response to this post will only further prove my point that you don\'t know the meaning of the word respect. Look it up.

      you know what. ill bet your grandfather was in ww2 krantzbucks. are you an american? do you have any idea of what life is really about you idiot? you are an american. the problem with most americans today is that they think they have to serve all other nations while they basically take advantage of us and piss on our respect when we even say hello in the street. open your eyes krantzbucks. wake up and think before you post you unamerican a**hole!

        I am offended by that deogatory reference. One should be sensitive to others. You just never know.

        I so much enjoyed this show as a kid. Wish I could buy the entire episodes on DVD. A real obscure retro-classic.

          I was about 3 yers old when I would watch this show with my uncle before he went to school. All these years I had confused this show with Jonny Socco. I must have really liked this show, because the fact that I remember it at all is amazing.

              Some people might be offended by the use of the word \"Jap\" in your show description.
