This DVD contains 5 episodes of the 1970s Hanna Barbera Godzilla cartoon. They are:
Island Of Lost Ships - The Sirens, creatures from ancient greek mythology, sing their beautiful, hypnotic music, which causes Captain Majors to strand the Calico and its passengers on an island.
The Magnetic Terror - A giant turtle-like monster keeps getting bigger and bigger as it feeds on energy. Captain Majors and Brock are very brave in this one, as they are willing to sacrifice their lives in order to save the world from this monster.
The Breeder Beast - A giant slug-like creature threatens to cause a nuclear explosion and destroy the world.
The Sub-Zero Terror - The crew of the Calico discovers a group of abominable snowman-like creatures, plus another similar creature which is much larger.
The Time Dragons - Godzilla and the crew of the Calico travel back in time to when dinosaurs were still alive.
I love this show, and with this release and the 2 previous ones, all 13 episodes from the first season are now available on DVD. However, there was also a second season with 13 more episodes, and none of those are available on DVD. I hope they will be released, because I love this show and I would buy them. Season 2 has "Calico Clones," which is my favorite episode of the series, as well as "Microgodzilla" and "Island Of Doom," which are also among the best episodes of the series.
This is the best version of Godzilla too. He's got laser vision, a cute sidekick dinosaur named Godzookie, and a team of ocean explorers in a ship "The Calico", who can summon Godzilla to their aid, with a signalling device.
The plots are intelligently written sci-fi, which I first enjoyed at age 10, and still enjoy in my 30s.
Buy all 3 volumes, and you'll have the season.
That being said i have a theory as to why Season two will never be released. In one of the last episodes the Godzilla team faces off against a terrorist group called COBRA....Yeah! THAT Cobra!!! in fact i think we see Cobra commander and the Baroness in particular. (I remember later when I first got into GI Joe that I remembered Cobra's existence prior to the introduction in GI joe)
