Lt. Col. Glenn Manning is inadvertently exposed to a plutonium bomb blast at Camp Desert Rock. Though burned over 90% of his body, he survives and begins to grow in size. As he grows, his heart and circulatory system fail to keep pace with his growth, and he is gradually losing his mind as a result of reduced blood supply to his brain. He reaches 50 feet tall before his growth is stopped. He escapes and wreaks havoc upon Las Vegas before he is finally stopped. 
- The sequel to The Amazing Colossal Man, War of the Colossal Beast, was released in 1958 and was featured in Episode 319.
- Jean Moorhead (Paula Parkins who is seen later in Experiment 610 The Violent Years) appears, briefly, as a woman in a bathtub as Glen rampages through Vegas.
- During segment four Servo quips that Glen "didn't exactly charm the pants off" Las Vegas during his last visit. Presumably he's referring to the giant's rampage across Vegas, which hadn't yet been seen by that point in the episode.
Segment One (Invention Exchange): The Mads make a plant that reviews music, while Joel demonstrates a non-permanent tattoo that can be drawn on a paper waxboard and changed for your newest girlfriend.
Segment Two: Joel tries to teach the Bots how to be sensitive to someone whose spouse has been horrendously injured. The Bots aren't having any of it.
Segment Three: Joel is 50-feet tall, and he isn't happy about it. The Bots don't help at all.
Segment Four: Joel and the Bots ponder what it would be like to meet the Amazing Colossal Man, and then get their chance when Glen drops by.
Segment Five: The crew ponders other things Glen could have done, letters are read, and Frank discovers the joys of giant syringes.
Stinger: Glen cracks up and then convulses.
- "I'm huge. Don't smoke, I'm huge now."
A reference to an anti-smoking PSA where Yul Brynner urged people not to smoke from beyond the grave.
- "Message for you sir!" -Crow T. Robot after a trooper gets shot in the back.
Crow takes a line from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The quote comes from Lancelot's servant Concorde, who is shot in the chest by an arrow with a letter attached to it.
- Commerically released on VHS by Rhino Entertainment in April 1996, the tape was later recalled due to rights issues. This is the only VHS release that has never been re-released on DVD by Rhino.
