Sidney Poitier appeared in the episode, "Mecha-Streisand", in which he assists Leonard Maltin and Robert Smith in defeating Barbra Streisand, all of whom can transform into Japanese movie monsters. Poitier transforms into a Gamera-like monster in order to fight Mecha-Streisand, he is tossed into a mountain by her and has yet to make another appearance (Stone and Parker even joked that he's out and he's never seen again). Although he helps defeat Mecha Streisand, Poitier did in fact seem pretty villainous when he heard that she had the diamond, he probably planning on using it for his own purposes.
Before he transformed, Sidney wore green pants, a white shirt with a black tie, and a brown coat. He has black hair but has graying sideburns.
After he transformed, he appears similar to Gamera, a creature from the Gamera series. His transformation looks like a giant tortoise with large muscles with a human head.
