Storyline

The crew of the research vessel, the Calico at one point rescue Godzooky, the young offspring of the mighty giant monster, Godzilla. Apparently, a pact was made that if the crew took care of the little guy, Godzilla would help if they needed him. As it turns out, this was a most fortuitous thing, because in the voyages of the Calico, they investigate mysteries that all too often lead to run-ins with dangerous giant beasts. With no way to battle the beasts themselves, the crew, either through a special signaling device or Godzooky calling himself, can summon Godzilla seemingly from anywhere around the world to confront the menace at hand.

Trivia

Godzilla in this series doesn't carry any ties to nuclear weapons and isn't shown to be the result of humanity's crimes. While this is a complete departure from the character's Japanese roots, it is actually fairly common in his American depictions to ignore or downplay these connections. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the entire series, Godzilla's size keeps changing wildly, even within episodes. In some shots, he can hold the crew of the Calico ship in his hand, while in others, he's so big that he can grab the entire ship. See more »

Animated Godzilla
2 May 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Hanna Barbara produced animated series based on the character of Godzilla(though not a continuation of the Toho film series) sees Godzilla helping out the crew of the research vessel the Calico after they save its little friend Godzooky from some calamity(though what kind was never revealed) by either using a signaling device to call Godzilla, or Godzooky using its own voice if needed. The crew(Captain Carl Majors, Dr. Quinn Darien, Pete & Brock) are often in trouble, and need his help quite frequently! Plots vary in quality; some have a degree of imagination, others are entirely silly and illogical. Highly episodic series ran for two seasons, and only the First is on DVD.
