I love how the co-star can't pronounce the title of the movie. Just like the Eastern European actress in Werewolf. You'd think during the screen test or auditions they might have picked up on that.

I guess that's how a puma/man would fly cuz we got limbs instead of a 7' wingspan. In truth, they prolly couldn't figure out the guidewire thing.

Wait so about all those people falling out of windows. Were they suggesting that Aztec man was just going around terminator style throwing whoever he thought might be the pumaman out of windows? That's messed up!

He will be its custodian, as will his sons and their sons. However, should they only have daughters, the world will be righteously boned because there's no such thing as pumawomen. Sorry, but there is always catwoman.

If you picked up a puma by its tail and 'flew' it around, I suppose it might look a little like how our 'hero' bumbles around through the air.
I can't decide what they were going for here on this effect;
Did they think the audience would sympathize with this hapless dork, suddenly thrust into a 'hero' role?
Were they hoping to appeal to people who,prefer some comedy in their drama/adventure/crap movie?
Was their budget so low that they could afford neither re-shoots, competent stunt men, or an actor who could work a trapeze harness?
WHAT-ever.
Thank goodness MST3K made it bearable or it would be a compete waste of film, money, and time.

When skimming through the recorded riffs, I find it rather entertaining how many different ways "puma" is spelled in an attempt to demonstrate how Donald Pleasance pronounces it.

Did Donald Pleasance think that the names of every big cat were pronounced with the same inflection as a pretentious British guy talking about his Jag-yu-war? Would he be talking about Lye-yons and Tyi-gars and Bears?

This was the first episode I caught when they started showing it in the UK, I was hooked after about 2 minutes, this film is so bad it's agonising to watch, the Pumaman, the single most effete superhero in history, the is still one of my favourite episodes. What the hell was Donald Pleasance thinking of when he agreed to be in this movie? I wonder if he has an autobiography with a films of shame section?

Odd that the Father of the Universe, at the time Stonehedge was doing a brisk business, had to build and then outfit a flying orb to get to and from appearances. And seriously, what sense would the word Pumaman make to a Druid? "Did he just say a poopy man is going to lead us? Blasphemy!"

Tony does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in his role of hero of this film. The only thing he does is pretend to be dead, which by definition, requires no action whatsoever. How many movies could write the title character out entirely and end up being a tighter film?

A glance at YouTube reveals that the original, unriffed Puma Man has exactly 21,914 views as of today. Just thought I'd inform you all. (Though I wish they could accurately report how many fervent film buffs made it all the way to the end without needing to call a therapist.) And now I'm off to do some high-altitude baking.

Yes, Tony, you have the ability to put yourself to sleep, to stop your heart, to kill yourself. Unfortunately, you do not have the ability to bring yourself back. I suppose I should have told you that ahead of time. Oh dear.

Who exactly was it that killed the four Americans at the beginning of the movie? It sort of implies that it was Donald Pleasance but the first thing the Aztec Guy does is throw someone out the window.

I wish I could remember who described this movie as the "ultimate MST3K turkey shoot." Seriously, I'm guessing that several hundred (or thousand) additional riffs had to be left out of the final cut because there just wasn't enough room.

What is the golden mask for? It seems to be only useful for controlling people so why would you put it in the Andes Mountains? Is Puma Man supposed to protect it until the aliens return to enslave the human race with it?

Just taking a moment out here from trying to figure out why MacTubes wouldn't download one of these Experiments from YouTube -- but would download other stuff

Now I can see why Puma Man got all those laughs. Started slow, but, man does it pick up, especially after the first time Puma Man flies. Oh, for cripes' sake, are they kidding? It's like they don't even care. Puma Man isn't even aimed properly, let alone gracefully. Oh, and that costume. What the hell kind of superhero wears a costume that looks like he bought it at a theatrical shop. He's got to be the dorkiest superhero ever. Even when he's Puma Man, he still talks like a dorky, whiny paleontologist. Oh, and that music -- that cheesy music that totally screams '70s TV Movie. This one's definitely a keeper.
