Editorial Reviews

Follow the adventures of the Calico, an ocean-going research vessel under the command of Captain Carl Majors and his crew, scientist Dr. Darien Quinn, her teenage nephew Pete, and first mate Brock. The protector of the ship is Godzilla. He befriended the ship’s crew after they had rescued a younger, winged version of Godzilla named Godzooky. During their travels, the crew of the Calico face many dangers like tidal waves and earthquakes. Luckily, Godzilla is always on hand to save the day with his mighty strength, fiery breath and red-laser like rays that shoot from his eyes.

Customer Reviews

My 5 and 6 year old kids love these episodes.
All other american made Godzilla projects such as the Novels, Dark Horse comics and Tri-star cartoon dont follow the continuity of any of the movie series.
Dante 360
Godzooky adds a nice humorous touch to the mix.

This DVD is called "Godzilla: The Original Animated Series Volume 1."

I was born in 1971. So when Hanna Barbera's "Godzilla" cartoon came out in the late 1970s, I was the perfect age for its intended audience.

This show featured the Calico, a research ship that traveled all over the world. The Calico carried all sorts of scientific research equipment with it, as well as a minicopter, a minisub, a bathosphere, a hovercraft, and a lifeboat. The Calico's crew consisted of Captain Carl Majors, Dr. Quinn Darian (a research scientist), Brock (Dr. Darian's assistant), Pete (Dr. Darian's nephew), and Godzooky. Godzooky was apparently a younger relative of Godzilla. He was also Pete's pet.

Although no episode of the show ever mentioned how the crew of the Calico became friends with Godzooky and Godzilla, it was mentioned in a press release when the show first aired: Godzooky was trapped in a coral reef, and he was rescued by the Calico's crew.

As the crew of the Calico traveled all over the world, they would encounter various monsters, creatures, bad guys, villains, enemies, etc. When they got in trouble, they could summon Godzilla by pressing a button on a small handheld signaler, which would emit a sonic frequency. Godzilla would then appear and save the day. When the signaler was unavailable, or broken, or when the sonic frequency was blocked, they could also call Godzilla by having Godzooky scream. Since Godzilla was a good guy, he would always do whatever he could to help them.

This show had lots of action, adventure, and heroism.

This series is really one of Hanna-Barbera's best shows as the animation, writing and voice work is far superior to the other "cookie-cutter" produced shows the studio was churning out at the time. (Yogi's Space Race anyone?) It was originally presented under the title "THE GODZILLA POWER HOUR" (Not "The Godzilla Show") and was paired with a good adventure show called "Jana of the Jungle" (sadly not presented here) about a Sheena type jungle-woman looking for her lost father. Ratings for this second half of the "power hour" were awful as kids tuned out after the Godzilla segment ended. So Jana was dropped after only three months and replaced with two older, already tested HB shows and the title was changed to "GODZILLA SUPER 90".

Like many a movie series, once the box office has dried up, the next step is television. (That's right kiddies!! In ye olden days they used to turn successful movies into crappy TV shows. Not the other way around like it is now.) Shaft, Planet of the Apes, Topper, The Thin Man.... The list goes on. Godzilla was no exception. The movie series had ended in Japan in 1975 but in America he was having a revival. Godzilla vs. Megalon had been widely ditributed to theatres in summer of 1976 by Cinema Shares, a low rent distribution company best known for handly Kung Fu movies, and been a smashing success. It was the first Godzilla film in the US since Godzilla vs. The Smog Monster in 1971. It was shown on NBC in a prime time slot the following year, hosted by John Belushi in a Godzilla suit and was a ratings grabber. 77-78 saw the release of Godzilla on Monster Island, Godzilla vs the Cosmic Monster and Terror of Godzilla to weekend matinee's. A Godzilla comic book from Marvel had started in 1977.

Format: DVD
I have been on a nostalgia kick lately, watching old cartoons from my youth ranging from Dungeons & Dragons to The Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan. I've actually been surprised at how well these old cartoons hold up, at how they can still entertain. Next up on my list was the old 1978 Hanna-Barbera cartoon "Godzilla!"

Like a lot of kids of the era, I was hooked on the late-`70s Godzilla revival when the "Godzilla vs. " flicks were being shown on broadcast TV. I had the "Shogun Warriors" toys to battle Godzilla, and I loved the Hanna-Barbera "Godzilla Power Hour." I saw nothing at all incongruous about a team of American researchers being able to summon Godzilla like an overgrown watchdog using nothing more than a signal watch. It was all cool.

And it still is. Sure, the stories are simple and cookie-cutter, but the animation is actually quite decent for the times, and the plots are no worse than your standard Godzilla flick. The crew of the Calico research vessel finds ancient, sleeping guardians or scientific monsters, and pretty soon all-out Giant Monster Battle ensues.

"Godzilla" follows Hanna-Barbera illogic, with Godzilla rising up from the ocean depths and essentially walking on water until it is time for him to sink back down. He increases in size multiple times over a few frames, from big enough to lift a sailing ship in a single hand, to small enough to carry a single human. And then there is Godzooky, the wacky side-kick. Godzooky is the American equivalent of Minira, and acts more like a friendly dog than a junior monster.
