Director Creator/HerschellGordonLewis needed another movie to round out a double-feature with ''Moonshine Mountain''. So he bought Bill (''Film/TheGiantSpiderInvasion'') Rebane's unfinished "Terror at Halfday," added a couple of extra scenes, some new dialogue, some narration, and voila - ''Monster A Go-Go'' was born. (The birth was illegitimate as Lewis did not deign to put his name on the movie, instead crediting himself by the pseudonym "Sheldon S. Seymour.")

Added DiffLines:

* NonIndicativeTitle: Technically averted, as there is a very very ''very'' brief moment of go go dancers at the very beginning, but you have to imagine anyone not making out with their girlfriend at the drive-in felt very gypped.

* JerkAss: Dr. Carl. Talks to the wife of the mission's pilot about how well a mission went when ''the pilot didn't come back alive'', instructs a mother not to tell her son that his step-father is dead, and inexplicably disappears before doing anything useful.
** And he promised the kid they'd go out for milkshakes before vanishing while the kid is out of the room.
** Considering the quality of this movie, vanishing from it might make Dr. Carl a KarmaHoudini

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: About half the characters disappear about halfway into the movie. One of them, Dr. Logan, is replaced by his brother, Dr. Logan, who is the same actor with a different haircut.
** The reason for this is because Lewis attempted to complete the film several years after Rebane abandoned it; the new characters replace the old ones whose actors were unavailable, and the same actor playing his original character's brother was on account of the actor being available but having drastically changed his appearance in the interim.

* ParodyRetcon: H.G. Lewis claimed this movie was a parody instead of an ObviousBeta, as does the trailer. He's also claimed it to be a "satire" later on.
