Episode Summary

EDIT
The Sub-Zero Terror
AIRED:
The crew of the Calico journey into the Himalayan Mountains with a scientific expedition led by Dr. Darian's old friend and colleague, Dr. Rourke, in search of a reputed source of geothermal energy. After approaching an area near a dormant volcano, which they believe to contain the energy source, a gigantic abominable snowman at the top of the nearby mountain range attempts to crush the intrepid crew by setting off an avalanche. Godzilla is called and arrives just in time to shield the group from the falling snow with his own body. Entering the volcano, the Calico crew discovers a sophisticated village ruled by a race of very intelligent human-sized hominids covered with white fur who call themselves the Watchuka. The Watchuka were obviously the source of the legends of the abominable snowmen reported by the people of Tibet for ages, and their village is powered by a remarkable steam engine that turns out to be the origin of the geothermal energy source the party was searching for. As it turns out, the Watchuka resent the human race who dominate the world, and they plan to conquer the surface by releasing an army of larger, warrior snowmen who have been kept in frozen storage until war is declared [obviously, the Watchuka haven't done their research on the human civilizations adequately enough, or they would realize that even their army of snowmen warriors would be quickly shot down by the surface world nations' tremendous military might]. The crew obviously oppose the Watchuka's plan, and when they summon the village's guardian, the gigantic Great Watchuka, to squelch the humans, Godzilla is summoned. After grappling with the Great Watchuka, Godzilla ultimately saves the crew from an oncoming volcanic eruption and seals the volcano shut with a huge rock, thereby denying the Watchuka further access to the surface world.moreless
