History

According to the narrator's voice in the archival footage, Double-Headed Rex vs. Super Man was written as if it were one of the films featured on the television show MonsterVision.

The Double-Headed Rex figure was part of a prop loan from Rich Falantano that had begun when King Kong vs. Roboman was created. After production wrapped for King Kong 2: King Kong Comes Back vs. The Bloody Man!, the figure was returned to Falantano and did not appear in any further shorts.
