Monster of the Day #402

    Since when do Godzillas have ape feet?

    I had a strange love of that cartoon as a kid.

    Well, not strange, I guess.  What kid doesn’t love giant monsters?  Even if you have to put up with comic relief monsters.

    Kill, it, kill it, kill it now!

  • Cullen Waters

    Aw, look at that face!  How could anyone hate that face?

    And yes, I watched the cartoon all the time as a kid.

    This was my first exposure to Godzilla.  Even as a small child, I did not like Godzooki.  I really liked Godzilla though.

    Soon after, I saw Godzilla 1985, and was very surprised by the lack of fire breath, eye lasers, friendly human companions, and kindness towards humanity.  I even had a very vivid nightmare of Godzilla rampaging through northwestern Iowa, killing my family, and I woke up just before he was going to step on me (anyone who’s seen that particular movie will know exactly why that last part was there, and exactly what it looked like.)

    Despite that, I rather preferred this mean, blue-laser spitting version, and although I have a fondness for superhero Godzilla’s movies, my favorites nowadays tend to be the more serious ones with Godzilla running amok.

    Well, I have to admit the cartoon did have some pretty cool bad guy monsters.

    Now I have the stinking theme song stuck in my head.

    Even as a kid, I hated this element of the show. It could have been a fun little adventure series, but I felt Godzooki was insulting. It was like I was being talked down to, as if my young mind weren’t mature enough to engage in a simple science fiction story with giant monsters, they had to include a cutsie character to make the show more like Scooby Doo. It still ticks me off a little!

  • God! The only thing worse than the Matthew Broderick ‘Godzilla’. Another of Hanna-Barbera’s long list of ‘We-Just-Don’t-Give-A-Damn-Anymore’ cartoons.

    Except for the Godzooki part, that theme song is pretty great, in my opinion.  You could have much worse things stuck in your head.

    We all know what I’m talking about.

    Molest me not with this conterfit Kaiju!
    Never liked the toon, never will. Hated Scooby-Do too.

  • David Fullam

    Totally love the way you think!

    And to think that some people still believe the “iceberg” theory…
