Ep. 05-18: The Green Slime (1968)

A giant asteroid is heading toward Earth! Two space-station astronauts, Commander Jack (Robert Horton) and Commander Vince (Richard Jaeckel), disembark from a nearby space station to blow it up. The mission is successful, and they return to the station, unknowingly bringing with them a gooey green substance that mutates into one-eyed tentacled monsters that feed off electricity. Soon the station is crawling with them!

The Green Slime

The moon is made of cheese! Not really, but there is plenty of high-grade cheese in cinematic outer space and The Green Slime (1968) is cut from the golden wheel. From its solid B-Movie cast, its ridiculous storyline, its Japanese-US production values, and its fabulously groovy score (think Barbarella), The Green Slime (1968) is a treasure chest loaded with the utmost quality, aged curds (and keys). Join us as we discuss why this ridiculous movie holds a dear place in our hearts. Listen as Johnny Has the Keys journey into space on toy rockets and battle one-eyed tentacled, electricity-spewing monsters to save our favorite 1960s Bond girl!


Open the door you’ll find the secret
To find the answer is to keep it
You’ll believe it when you find
Something screaming ‘cross your mind
Green slime
What can it be, what is the reason
Is this the end of all that breathes, and
Is it something in your head?
Will you believe it when you’re dead?
Green slime, green slime, green slime
