Yatterman Night #09 — Poop Mines

March 8th, 2015


At least that was something approaching a gag.


There’s something vaguely disconcerting about a bunch of people gathering around naked dancing men to cheer them on, and then a little girl stripping to her underwear to join the dance. Yeah, they were a bunch of robots in disguise, but consider that someone had to program that behavior. I’d say it’s a relief to see Darth Electro finally sent off to maybe make room for the final antagonist, but he went out in yet another panic attack from seeing Blindy and they still haven’t gotten to the connection between the two, so they’re still stretching that out to the bloody breaking point.

It’s hard to think of this as much of a Speed Racer parody too, since all they really did was stumble across a magic car with monkey and then… drive and befriend it respectively. I’m also assuming that the original Yatterman didn’t have some Speed Racer ripoff car, although from about 5 seconds on Google, it looks like cross overs with it were just a thing Yatterman traditionally does. I can’t help but think of the Dexter’s Laboratory Speed Racer parody, and they did absolutely nothing at all with this. A good parody stands on its own without knowing the source. This was just tossing the Mach 5 (and monkey) in and then playing it completely straight.
