WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Special Rescue Police Winspector Episode #22

Inspector Toragoro's bratty nephew is visiting, and Bikel and Walter get saddled with babysitting duty. But things are cut short when a police station is attacked by a man who should have been shot to death in a bank robbery... and now he seems to be able to fire laser beams from his fingertips! When he kidnaps Toragoro's nephew, Winspector has to shift into high gear!

Notes: This is the first appearance of Ryoma's white jacket, which appears for much of the middle of the show before switching back to the black jacket. I don't know if the white one got damaged, or if they wanted to make him look similar to Kotaro Minami in Kamen Rider Black RX.

This is one of those episodes that would "never be made today" because a child gets a gun and gets away with little more than a spanking.

Pictured: totally acceptable behavior.
This episode is a great one for Bikel and Walter, also, featuring some really memorable lines. Though I will say that the ending narration is by far one of the strangest in the series. "If you don't keep your mischief under control, they'll spank your butts too!"

I guess it's thrown in their so parents will threaten their children that Winspector will come and spank your butt. Hey now. Don't threaten ME with a good time!

In the big reveal, take a look at the cybernetic thing on the guy's face. It's the same one that R-24 was wearing in the first episode. No connection storywise, it's just the same plot.
