If you were a kid in the late seventies and your family had cable, you might remember a Japanese sci-fi show called The Space Giants that aired in the afternoons after school on WTCG Channel 17 Atlanta, which later became WTBS.
The show featured a robot family that battled the evil Rodak who was always unleashing some kind of giant monster to destroy civilization. The robot family could turn into rockets and the dad would also become a giant who would fight the creatures.
The Space Giants was the first Tokusatsu show filmed in Color in Japan.
Tokusatsu is a term used to describe Japanese live-action shows that use a good bit of special effects. Similar shows include Ultraman and Spectreman.
