Nick is worried that one of Godzilla's egg might have survived the events of the 1998 Godzilla movie. When Godzilla's offspring hatches indeed from a single surviving egg, Nick and his science team ...
One of the main reasons why the series is so different from the movie it's spun off from, Godzilla (1998), is that almost all of the production crew were big fans of the original Japanese Godzilla films. Since the American movie's exact details were kept secret, down to the capabilities of Godzilla himself, the cartoon staff had no choice but to base their work on the Japanese movies. Thus, Godzilla Jr. is more anthropomorphic, has the iconic atomic breath weapon, stands more upright and does battle with other monsters. See more »
I saw this cartoon rerun in Zurich (where i live), and I could not believe my eyes! The movie back in '98 made me disappointed, a. for having one monster fighting off a military (people don't come to see a monster fighting just the military, they want monsters fighting each other) and b. because they were trying too hard to be like Jurassic park at the end.
But this takes a completely different approach. The last baby of the Godzilla movie considers Nick (the main character) his "father", so whenever some ugly creature starts rampaging around New York (the enemy monsters can also be very well designed), so Godzilla comes and pretty much makes sure they can never touch New York again. He has the same design from the movie, and he can finally shoot fire from his mouth and is a lot more nimble. Godzilla fans rejoice.
