Scooby-Doo vs. the Gargantuas

Tonight, the wife and I watched the recent Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated episode "Battle of the Humungonauts" -- and were delighted to find it to be a riff on the 1966 Toho classic War of the Gargantuas. The episode even included a club scene where the singer performed "The Words Get Stuck in My Throat"!

For those who want to compare, here's the song as originally performed in War of the Gargantuas:

oh man do I feel stupid now! I totally realized that the episode was a tribute to Gargantuas, and even told my wife that as we were watching but for the life of me I could not figure out what movie I had heard the Words Get Stuck song in. It sounded so familiar to me and looking up info on the internets didnt help. Little did I know that even that scene was a tribute to Gargantuas as well. I had planned on watching the film that night and forgot it would have saved me a lot of mental duress LOL
