Godzilla was a must see for the school child of the late 1970s early 1980s. I for one used to run home especially to watch this animated adventure. The series began on NBC on September 9th 1979 and lasted for two seasons. It was previously shown on NBC as "The Godzilla Power Hour" (not sure of the year but someone did suggest 1962). Godzilla was first shown on BBC1 on the 31st March 1980 at 16:40 to 17:00. It was on just after Cheggars Plays Pop (Barbara Dickson and Pussyfoot were guests) and just before John Craven's Newsround. Godzilla was a 300 foot tall fire breathing, laser from his eyes producing lizard produced from atomic experiments in the Pacific. The Power Hour also showed "Jana of the Jungle." Godzilla always began with superb music lyrics.........................

"Up from the depths,

Thirty stories high......."

The earth was constantly under threat from huge mutants, alien monsters, freaks of man's pollution of all kinds. The scientists aboard the Calico were led by Professor Darian Quinn. The ship was controlled by Captain Carl Majors. They were aided by a motley crew (should have been expendables - although admittedly no one actually dies - not even the bad monsters). The only pain in the proverbial was that .....Godzooky (I hated him). He was always getting in the way of things and screwing up things for Godzilla and when ever he got chance he would blow a few smoke rings. I suppose Godzooky was necessary because Pete would have owned a little dog had not every other cartoon got a boy with a small pet. Hence a pet baby Godzilla was a must to lighten things up. Whenever the humans got into real trouble or came across something they couldn't handle (which was every single episode), Captain Majors would call Godzilla by pressing his sonic alarm button. Alternatively if the device was missing or for some reason Majors was not available Godzooky was able to call Godzilla himself. Godzilla would come roaring out of the sea to help. Why he bothered I'll never know, stupid humans got themselves into the same mess every week.
