Description by OLDIES.com:
MR. LOBO'S CINEMA INSOMNIA: In the tradition of vintage horror host shows, Mr. Lobo appears in brief vignettes in between segments of the late night movie in this nationally syndicated television show. Various odd companions and characters have appeared over the show's 18-year tour of duty–like a houseplant named Miss Mittens and a female robot monster named Ro-Mana. Also appearing in the breaks are satirical commercials (like one for "Rad Abrams: Skateboard Attorney"), old movie trailers, classic commercials and interviews shot at horror/sci-fi conventions and film festivals across the country. "They're Not Bad Movies...Just Misunderstood!"
Mr. Lobo presents the "classic" 1967 Japanese kaiju movie, Monster From A Prehistoric Planet. Explorers discover Gappa, a strange, prehistoric "bird-reptile" on an exotic South Seas island. Soon Gappa's angry parents show up in Tokyo looking for their baby boy. Monstrous Mom and Dad are 50 feet tall and shoot fire from their mouths! In addition to Mr. Lobo's wacky wraparounds, you get a healthy heaping of retro commercials and trailers. Some hilarious highlights include Mr. Lobo learning to hula and a guest appearance by fellow "horror host" Lady Skank'nstein ("You watch me 'cause me have boobies!") Join Mr. Lobo for this "tiki-tainted pupu platter of tropical terror."
