Trivia / The Mysterians

  • Executive Meddling: Ishiro Honda originally wanted to make the film without a giant monster, but Tomoyuki Tanaka insisted that there be one. Thus, the Moguera was born. Not that this is a bad thing, mind you.
    • Also the reason the RKO version was not present on the DVD. Toho hates this version for no reason, and the copyright should've reverted back to them in any case.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The only way to watch the original RKO/MGM U.S. version outside of actual film prints.
