Godzilla Cartoon

The Godzilla Power Hour aired on NBC in 1978. It consisted of Godzilla and Jana of the Jungle.


Unlike the Japanese movie character, the animated Godzilla (Ted Cassidy) was a 400-foot-tall amphibian that befriended the crew of a research ship after they rescued his younger relative, a cheerful dragon named Godzooky (Don Messick). The ship's crew, led by Capt. Carl Majors and Dr. Quinn Darien, faced many perils as they investigated mysterious phenomena all over the world. Inevitably, Godzilla was summoned from the ocean depths to rescue them.

  • In response to the Y2K hype, Cartoon Network created a short, "Godzilla vs. the Y2K Bug", in which the Calico is attacked by a personified Y2K Bug. The Godzilla calling device is useless because the crew forgot to update the embedded microchip.
  • Dr. Quinn Darien appeared as Dr. Gale Melody, a music expert, in the Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law episode "Shoyu Weenie". She was voiced by Grey DeLisle.
