o.supreme wrote:Yes. I actually got all 5 Sandy Frank Gamera films at KB Toystore back in 1989, they were 2 bucks each on VHS (because these were the only versions avaialable at the time, I have long since discarded mine however). You can find used copies on Amazon or eBay:

Barugon - VHS
Gyaos - DVD Shout!
Guiron - DVD Shout!

THAT I will agree with simply because these were the ONLY versions released on VHS and seen on MST3K. It wasn't until 1997 when Neptune Media painstakingly tried to release restored versions of the AIP TV versions on VHS, and only succeeded in getting 2 done. However many fans had already seen them on TV decades before.wataru wrote:Sandy Frank dubs were probably the majority versions most people got exposed to Gamera, via MST3K or VHS tape.
