Godzilla Island (ゴジラアイランド?, Gojira Airando) was a television show spinoff of the Godzilla franchise. It premiered on October 6, 1997, and ran for a total of 256 three-minute episodes, finishing on September 30, 1998. Set in 2097, the series focused on events on an island out in the Pacific Ocean where most of the world's monsters reside.

The creatures that star in the show include: Godzilla, Godzilla Junior, Mothra, Mothra Leo, Battra, Rodan/Fire Rodan, King Ghidorah, Mecha-King Ghidorah, Fake Godzilla, MechaGodzilla, Anguirus, Gigan, Hedorah, SpaceGodzilla, Destoroyah, Baragon, King Caesar, Proto-Moguera, Moguera, Megalon, Gorosaurus, Kamacuras, Jet Jaguar, Dororin, and Dogora. Also, there were several exclusive daikaiju created for inclusion in the series, including Hyper Mecha-King Ghidorah, Black MechaGodzilla, Neo Hedorah, Gororin, Medical Jet Jaguar and Fire Fighter Jet Jaguar. Gotengo, also made an appearance.

An unusually large number of tie-in toys were created for this series by Bandai toys, because this series was, in fact, created through the use of action figures. A CD of theme music, mostly composed by Akira Ifukube was released in 1997 by Polygram entitled 'Welcome To Godzilla Island'. However, most of the music was provided by U2 guitarist, The Edge. In 2007, a 4-disc DVD set including every episode of the show was finally released in Japan at a price of 16000 yen (approx. $160).

Plot

In 2097, most of the world's monsters have been rounded up and are living on an island in the south pacific dubbed Godzilla Island. The kaiju are kept content on their island home, and are monitored from the G-Guard base in the center of the island. There, the G-Guard Commander watches and monitors the monsters day after day, with only the spherical robot Lucas by his side. However, the monotony of the job and of the monster's lives comes to an abrupt end when a gigantic UFO arives on Earth. Inside is the Xilian Zaguresu, who, under the command of her leader, the Giant Dark Emperor, is hell bent on taking over the planet, starting with Godzilla Island. However, as her ship arives on and begins to attack the island, a smaller ship arives and defends the island, the monsters, and the base. As the Commander and Lucas scratch their heads, perplexed by this new turn of events, a young woman suddenly appears in the base. She introduces herself as Torema, and says she has come to help defend the island from Zaguresu's onslought. However, the three heroes have a long road ahead of them, as the evil Xilians have an entire army of monsters at their disposal, and more than a fiew suprises to boot. It will be up to the Commander, his daughter Misato, Torema, Lucas, and the horde of monsters living on Godzilla Island to defend their home, and the world, from the coming invasion.
