What You Need to Know:
- Families saw Ultraman on TV for the first time on July 10th, 1966. A whole week before its official release on July 17th!
- On July 10, a PR event took place at Suginami Public Hall called "Ultraman Eve Festival: The Birth of Ultraman" in which creator Eiji Tsuburaya appeared as a guest, along with some of the monsters, and other characters.
- The event was recorded locally but then broadcasted nationally for everyone to watch at home that evening, making it the first time Ultraman was officially on Television!
52 years and going strong!
Happy birthday, Ultraman!
