THE GODZILLA POWER HOUR by DannyNicholas THE GODZILLA POWER HOUR by DannyNicholas

“Up from the depths
Thirty stories high
Breathing fire
His head in the sky
Godzilla!
Godzilla!
Godzilla!

And Godzooky....”

Hey, there’s a new Godzilla movie in theaters!

To commemorate the release of “Godzilla 2014” I thought I’d pay tribute to one of my favorite renditions of “Big G,” Hanna Barbera’s “THE GODZILLA POWER HOUR, while also paying respect to the classic Godzilla Marvel Comics series. I loved the cartoon and the comics as a little tike who was obsessed with our favorite Japanese atomic breathing lizard.

So, my feelings on the new movie are all-the-round positive! It’s one heck of a spectacle, nearly bordering on the awe factor of “Jurassic Park.”

Pro: It’s a Godzilla movie. I know that sound a little superfluous, but it’s quite surprising. It wasn’t a retelling. Actually, it was more of a continuation of the original series. Surprising, indeed.  

Con: The lack of the classic Godzilla theme music. Sure, the new movie’s monster theme has faint notes that homage the original music; however, the immortal theme was sorely missed.

Also: No men in suits… okay, I knew that wasn’t going to happen, but… A boy can dream can’t he?

This is very clever! Does that Kanji mean 'GOJIRA'?

Thank you, b1k! I really hope the Japanese writing means "Godzilla" (Gojira)? I just took it from a old Godzilla movie poster.

I checked on Wikipedia and it does mean 'GO-JI-RA' in each character.

That's awesome, DarkZadPrime! I have a few back issues in a box somewhere. Do you know who drew these covers? I can't quite remember.

Thanks for commenting! :)

I too grew up with this cartoon and have the whole series on two VCR tapes buried within storage boxes, though half on DVD ...

Same here, I taped a bunch of the cartoon on VHS. I need to dig them up one day. Thanks for the wonderful comment, BalloonPriness! :)

Currently, I'm going through the movies, but I probably will hit the 1970s cartoon next weekend or so.  I did watch the 1990s cartoon and found it to be very good.  :)
