Wasn't this the plot of the live action Cromartie High School movie?
Professor Bobo nooooo!!!
I remember renting this SOMEHOW back in high school and being so awestruck at the cheese I told everyone about it. The beat up old VHS copy at the store disappeared the next week and no one believed me. Five for proving me right.
When I was five they played this, Ultraman and The Space Giants (Ambassador Magma) back to back, I truly believe these were the source of my nerdocity.

Yeah, I'd watch this.
Wait, "English version directed by Mel Welles"? That's the same Mel Welles who played Digger Smolkin in MST3K's "The Undead". Wikipedia confirms it and further says about his Spectreman directing: "While he shares writing credit with two other people, it's clear that most of the English voice work, and the offbeat humor, is his."
In a flash, like a rat
Faster than a corpse
A mystery with the filth
Here's some "The Undead":
