Summary :

It starts out with Buffalo Bill Codyís Wild West Show heading to Japan on board a flying zeppelin.Buffalo Bill is definitely not his usual self. It seems as though his wife caught him cheating on her and shot a rather big hole in him. To save the famous entertainerís life, Dr. Samuel Morse and Professor Maxxon, removed Billís head and stuck it in a mason jar filled with pig urine and whisky. A motorized crank was then attached to the jar so that electrical charges could be sent to Billís head in order to keep his mind activated. Now, the true purpose behind the Wild West Showís visit to the Land of the Rising Sun is to steal the body of the Frankenstein monster that is being held prisoner by Sokaku Takeda, Shogun of Japan. Morse and Maxxon think that if they can get hold of the monsterís body, itíll help them to figure out how to successfully re-attach Buffalo Billís head to the rest of his torso. One event leads to another and before you know it, Buffalo Bill and his crew have rescued the monster and are trying to escape in the slow zeppelin. Japanese planes eventually shoot the dirigible down over the Pacific, and thatís when the real adventure begins...
