Are you familiar with this character ?
- Height: 40 m (130 ft)
- Weight: 35,000 tons
- Age: 20,000 Earth years old
- Flight Speed: Mach 5
- Jump Ceiling: 800 m (2,600 ft)
- Running Speed: 450 km/h (280 mph)
- Swimming Speed: 200 knots (230 mph)
- Physical Strength: can lift a 100,000-ton tanker (Skydon was twice as heavy)
I guess the plot is simple enough for any 2 year old to understand and I was amazed when Dzaef recognizing Ultraman ( besides Thomas and Friends , Barney and Tom Tom Bak ) and started doing fighting stance "ultraman" style. Imagine , something that mesmerized me 25 - 7 years ago is having its affect on my 2 year old boy ! I never asked my father though if he did watch ultraman during his younger days.. ( Mind you.. The Ultraman mania started in 1967 !! ) .
Amazing isn;t it.. the magic of television. Some might argue the fighting scene might evoke violence in their young minds , but if you watch Ultraman closely ; it does not reflect that unlike the newer cartoon series. The fighting scene is honourable , muscle over muscle old school ! I guess he is here to stay and perhaps I would live to see my grandchildren gazing over ultraman all over again !!!
Clash of interest : This post is to justify me buying my son the Ultraman figurine this morning.
