The Complete Episode Guide
Dracolon, The Great Sea Monster
Originally aired Jan 1, 1969

The Earth is under attack by Gargoyle, a terrorist group led by the alien Emperor Guillotine -- who plans to conquer the Earth with an army of giant monsters. The first monster is batting planes out of the sky and attacking ships at sea. On one of those ships, a young boy named Johnny Sokko meets Jerry Mano, a member of top-secret peacekeeping organization Unicorn. When the monster sinks the ship, Johnny and Jerry drift to an island base of Gargoyle. While running from the gang, they find a scientist building a giant robot. The scientist explains that Giant Robot works by atomic energy and only obeys the person who gives the first order. Aware of Gargoyle's evil plans, he plants a bomb -- an atomic bomb -- to destroy his lab. After Johnny and Jerry escape from the explosion, Giant Robot rises from the ruins -- apparently, the atomic bomb activated its brain -- and Johnny is the first to speak to it ... and thus, only Johnny can control it.
