Godzilla: The Series Characters Tributes

We saw took a look back at Godzilla: The Series and Godzilla 1998 and like other film to animated sequels there are some changes with the characters and they don’t usually look like their actor counterparts to save some money. So let’s take a look at some of the characters the show had to offer.

Godzilla (Zilla) Jr.: Since the Godzilla was killed in the film (and later revived in the show) they had to bring in a new Godzilla and it’s easily explained by having one of the baby Zilla eggs survive, which is actually a cliffhanger ending the movie had and the show resolves. Nick goes to check that there aren’t any eggs left and finds this one egg hatching, the baby Godzilla thinks Nick is his mother and a loving relationship is formed.

Godzilla: The Series (1998 GINO Sequel) Review

Godzilla (1998) may have been a movie that everyone hated but it had a short lived animated series is remembered fondly by those who watched it I loved it as well since it continued from the movie which I had enjoyed and it was a Godzilla cartoon which is something I always wanted and the Hanna-Barbera cartoon didn’t fulfil.

The show had a decent run of 40 episodes, and it always got good ratings which is saying something since it was out during the time Pokemon and all the networks had similar shows to compete against. The show begins exactly where the movie ends, in fact the first episode shows the ending of the movie in animated form and that’s actually really cool.

Godzilla [1998] Doesn’t Suck, it’s Awesome! Redemption Review

In the dawn of a new Godzilla era and because I’ll also be reviewing the series based on this movie I thought it was needed for someone to chime in and defend this little movie from the Internet since it gets far more hate than it could possibly deserve despite its flaws. So whether you call him GINO, Zilla, American / Tristar / Sony Godzilla which I refuse to since he is Godzilla to me, and this is my tribute to him.

So you can better understand where I’m coming from I’ll let you know a bit of my backstory, I always loved Dinosaurs and liking Godzilla was a no brainer. I thought he was awesome even if I had never seen any of his movies and I actually sadly never got to experience any of his movies as a kid either. I never saw any Godzilla films on video rental stores or ever caught them airing on TV, the closest I got was the Hannah-Barbera Godzilla cartoon with Godzuki and even as a kid I was not a big fan of it and only liked it because it was Godzilla something. I go to a theater to see some movie and I get to see a T-Rex skeleton crushed by a giant foot and then find out a Godzilla movie is coming out and I would actually be able to see it!

Godzilla’s Revival Series

Godzilla movies have been divided into the Showa, Heisei and Millenium era’s to help represent the series that the movie belonged to. While the Millenium series ended a while ago it seems with all the new Godzilla projects in the works we’ve reached a new era. Some fan sites are already calling it the Reboot series, but is this name really appropriate?

The only thing going for it is that all previous movies always referred to the original Gojira 1954 movie as being the first and this is the first film that doesn’t acknowledge those events but even then Godzilla has gone through a lot of reboots so more than anything it seemed like Godzilla was no longer a relevant franchise until now again so it’s more of a revival so until the reboot series is cemented into the fandom I’ll just refer to it as the Revival series which started with the American Godzilla by Legendary in 2014.

Looking back on.. Godzilla’s Hanna-Barbera cartoon

Godzilla had a cartoon made in the late 70’s by Hanna-Barbera and well it’s umm..something. As a kid I loved Godzilla but whenever re-runs of this show aired on Cartoon Network I found it difficult to sit through. The show seems to have been made by people who didn’t know what Godzilla was and just used what they thought he was and went along with it. The characters or setting is never really explained you just know that you have some people on a ship who live with this creature called Godzooki that encounter monsters but Godzilla helps them out. Apparently the series bible explains this Godzooky, who is Godzilla’s nephew and he was in danger but the crew of the Calico saved his life and Godzilla protects the crew as a reward.

Making Godzilla Scary Again

I was seldom excited about the new Toho Godzilla film when it was announced last December; I mean we already had a Godzilla movie recently and even with this one coming from Japan but then I saw the trailer 6 months ago which changed my mind. I had already seen the Godzilla design from the leaks and I used to have mixed feelings about it but after watching the first teaser trailer I was sold.
