Trivia

  • Although production for Agon: Atomic Dragon was wrapped up in 1964, Toho prevented it from being broadcast because the main kaiju Agon too closely resembled Godzilla, setting the series' broadcast back by 4 years.
  • Toho, after being convinced that Godzilla was not intentionally copied, decided to compile the entire series into a 96-minute long film which was released in the mid-1990's on VHS.
