Movie Quote(s):
  • Dr. Charles Decker: Konga! Put me down! Konga! Put me down! [line repeats several more times]
  • Supt. Brown: Fantastic... There's a huge monster gorilla that's constantly growing to outlandish proportions loose in the streets!
  • Dr. Charles Decker: [after shooting his cat twice with a pistol] Even those few drops might have made Tabby swell up to huge proportions!
  • Dr. Charles Decker: There's danger in that hungry plant... It thrives on meat!
  • Margaret: [to Dr. Decker over breakfast] What are you having with your poached egg? Murder?
Movie Trivia:
  • Producer Herman Cohen first considered using "ape" actor Steve Calvert, who had worked with Cohen on Bride of the Gorilla (1951) and Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla (1952), but Calvert had retired from performing in his gorilla suit. Cohen turned to another renowned "ape" actor George Barrows, but only hired Barrows' gorilla costume, not Barrows himself. The actor Paul Stockman was instead chosen, based primarily on being a good fit for Barrows' costume. Barrows was annoyed when his gorilla costume was returned from England in bad shape.
  • German Import DVD has a Super-8 Version (German language only), as a special feature on the disc.
