Godzilla's origin Japanese name is "Gojira? which means half gorilla, and half whale (kujira). A nickname Ishiro Honda (the director) and colleagues used to described a press agent who was "oversized and tough- looking".

Godzilla was released by Toho Co. Ltd in Japan in 1954, under the name "Gojira." Two years later, Gojira reached America as "Godzilla King of the Monster." Toho would continue to produce Godzilla films into the 90s. However, Toho is known for other monsters than Godzilla.

Godzilla is one of the first Japanese characters that made his way through western culture and widely considered to be the second greatest film ever to be produced in Japan, next to Akira Kurosawa's 'The Seven Samurai.'".

Not only a modern monster, Godzilla has broken the 20 film mark, among the top monstrous creatures in movies along with Dracula and the Wolfman.

The story of Godzilla was inspired bt a real life nuclear accident in which a Japanese fishing boat ventures too close to an American nuclear test and was contaminated.

Godzilla's roars were created by rubbing a coarse, resin-coated leather glove up and down the strings of a contrabass (double bass), and reverberated the recorded sound.

The producer originally wanted Godzilla to be a giant fire breathing ape.

MUSICAL INTERLUDE:

"Ultraman, Ultraman

Here he comes from the sky

Ultraman, Ultraman

Watch our hero fly

In a super jet he comes

From a billion miles away

From a distant planet land

Comes our hero Ultraman"

:afro: :afro: :afro: :jester: :rockon: :rockon:

the warning light on Ultraman's chest begins to blink. The energy Ultraman gets from the sun diminishes rapidly. If it should stop completely it means that Ultraman will never rise again!!!

Wow!! I am surprised I remembered that! :laughing:

Captain Scarlett, man. He came on right between Spiderman and Ultraman. Every day after school, while I laid on the floor and supposedly did my homework.
