It looks like the classic Japanese show Ultraman is out on DVD:

DVD Review: Ultraman – Series 1, Vol. 1

“Many Americans who grew up in the 70’s have strange, foggy memories of a swirl of psychedelic colors appearing on the TV screen, giving way to a show about a giant spaceman who fought googly-eyed rubber monsters. Some may even wonder whether they actually saw this show or just dreamed it. They need wonder no more.

The first Region 1 DVD of Ultraman has finally arrived. Debuting in Japan in 1966, under the creative leadership of Eiji Tsuburaya, the special effects man responsible for Godzilla’s look, Ultraman became a phenomenon in Japan, where it has spawned generations worth of sequels, spin-offs and rip-offs, and an empire of ancillary marketing that even makes George Lucas envious.”
