Godzilla: The Series (ゴジラ ザ・シリーズ,   Gojira za Shirīzu?) was an animated series made as a sequel to the 1998 TriStar Pictures film, GODZILLA.


In the series, Godzilla (the baby that survived the destruction of Madison Square Garden and hatched from the egg at the end of the 1998 film--often nicknamed Zilla Junior by fans) battles a large group of giant monsters. The show tracks Godzilla and team H.E.A.T. around the planet battling new mutations and other supernatural beasts.

The series not only had Godzilla battle several other kaiju, such as a Giant Bat, but also face a fleet of invaders known as "Tachyons" in a tribute to Destroy All Monsters, and an eccentric billionaire rival of Nick's. In an ironic twist from the original Godzilla TV adaptation, in the 1998 film, Godzilla has a flammable power breath similar to fire, while in the series, his son breathes a green atomic breath.

Despite the negative reaction to the film, Godzilla: The Series garnered surprisingly positive reactions from fans and it did well in the TV ratings. The series followed the adventures of Dr. Nick Tatopoulos, a major character from the film, and Godzilla's surviving baby. The series returned Godzilla's trademark characteristics to the monster in the series, including his strength and nigh-indestructibility, his atomic breath and general masculinity. This Godzilla follows Dr. Tatopoulos and the members of H.E.A.T around, having imprinted upon Nick as his own parent, and fights various other monsters that have been formed by nuclear radiation, in the style of the late Showa era. The fan response to the series was overall very positive, and the animated Godzilla gained much respect from those who hated the film.




  • Due to programming laws in the 1990's, Godzilla: The Series was unable to show or mention death. As such there are no human fatalities shown in the entire series, while monsters that are killed are usually said to be "destroyed" instead of "killed."
    • While this is the case, in the episode Shafted, there are some petrified and presumably dead miners. In the episode Future Shock, it is implied that a large portion of the human population was wiped out by the D.R.A.G.M.A.s in an alternate future, while Mendel Craven explicitly says that Godzilla died fighting the D.R.A.G.M.A.s.
