Godzilla: The Series is an American/Japanese animated television series which originally aired on Fox in the United States. The show premiered on September 12, 1998, and is a direct sequel to the American Godzilla remake.

Contents

Plot

Using an art style similar to that of Adelaide's previous productions Men in Black: The Series and Extreme Ghostbusters, the series follows the Humanitarian Environmental (or Ecological, in "Area 51") Analysis Team (H.E.A.T.), a research team led by Dr. Nick Tatopoulos (voiced by Ian Ziering) as they battle giant monsters which frequently appear in the wake of the events depicted in the film. Godzilla, the only hatchling of its species to survive in the movie, imprints on Nick and becomes the chief weapon summoned against the other monsters encountered by the human characters.

The series also introduces two new characters: Monique Dupre, a French secret agent assigned by Philippe Roache to keep an eye on Godzilla and H.E.A.T., and Randy Hernandez, an intern of Nick's who specializes in computer hacking.

Home video and DVD

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released two episode sequences on VHS: "Trouble Hatches", the two-episode pilot, and "Monster Wars." [1] Columbia TriStar Home Video has also released nine episodes on DVD, spread out onto three separate volumes: "The Monster Wars Trilogy", consisting of the same three episodes previously released on the VHS of the same name, "Monster Mayhem", which included "What Dreams May Come", "Bird of Paradise", and "Deadloch", the third volume was entitled "Mutant Madness", which contained "S.C.A.L.E. (Fist Of Godzilla)", "The Twister" and "Where Is Thy Sting?".

Also the special edition DVD of the film titled "Godzilla: Monster Edition" also contains three episodes of the TV series "What Dreams May Come", "Monster Wars Part 1" and "Where Is Thy Sting?".[2]

As of October 2010, the entire series is available on the Netflix Instant Streaming service.[3]

Scheduling problems

Despite the mostly negative response to the film, the animated series still did well during Fox Kids' Saturday morning line-up and was praised by those who condemned the film. Ultimately, the series was overshadowed by the late 1990s Pokémon/Digimon war between Kids WB and Fox Kids during the 1999-2000 season. The result was Godzilla: The Series being placed in different timeslots on Saturdays to accommodate many of the Digimon marathons and back-to-back episodes; this would also affect other Fox Kids shows as well. For a brief period of time, episodes of Godzilla: The Series were either never repeated, or skipped over and rescheduled. There was a brief period where the show was taken off the schedule to accommodate new shows for mid-season, resulting in three episodes that were never broadcast.

Characters

H.E.A.T.

  • Dr. Niko "Nick" Tatopoulos - Leader of H.E.A.T. and the "adoptive father" of Godzilla. Nick fiercely protects Godzilla and other mutants from both foreign and domestic governments. Voiced by Ian Ziering (replacing Matthew Broderick, who played Nick Tatopoulos in the movie).
  • Monique Dupre - A Vietnamese/French agent of the French Secret Service specializing in hand-to-hand combat and infiltration. Originally sent to have Godzilla killed, but later one of his defenders. Voiced by Brigitte Bako.
  • Randy Hernandez - An intern working under Nick, and like him Godzilla's defender. Hugely talented in all fields of technology, but extremely lazy and somewhat laconic. He has a crush on Monique, but is always refused when he attempts to court her. Voiced by Rino Romano.
  • Dr. Mendel Craven - The team's engineer and chemist. He is slightly cowardly (as his last name implies) and prone to numerous strong allergies, but is often useful. He is enamoured of Elsie. Although initially fearful of Godzilla, over the course of the series he comes to trust the monster as an ally. Voiced by Malcolm Danare who is reprising his role from the film.
  • N.I.G.E.L. (Next millennium Intelligence Gathering Electronic Liaison) - An analysis robot created by Mendel and reprogrammed by Randy to have a cheerful personality, from Texas cowboy to Shakespearean. A running gag on the show is that he is destroyed in almost every episode, presumably to be rebuilt or replaced (evidenced by Craven's remark in the episode "Competition" that he should "just buy spare parts in bulk". Voiced by Tom Kenny.
  • Dr. Elsie Chapman - One of the original members of Nick's team; often sarcastic for the sake of causing laughs, and partly interested in Mendel. She specializes in studying the behavior of Godzilla and the other monsters. Voiced by Charity James.
  • Godzilla - The only surviving offspring of the first Godzilla that attacked New York City in 1998. Due to Nick's presence at his hatching, Godzilla has imprinted on Nick as his parent. As a result, Godzilla is very protective of him, and Nick has the ability to control him to a certain extent, which allows the humans to use him as a weapon against other mutated monsters. Unlike his biological father, he is incapable of asexual reproduction, yet capable of breathing radioactive fire and relentless in any fight, much like the Godzilla from the original franchise.

Others

  • Major Anthony Hicks - Major of the New York Sandy Point Military Base of New York. He has developed a soft spot for Godzilla, whom he views as a hero. Voiced by Kevin Dunn who reprised his role from the film.
  • Audrey Timmonds - Nick's college sweetheart and current girlfriend, whose career as a reporter often leads to conflict with him. Voiced by Paget Brewster.
  • Victor "Animal" Palotti - New York's Channel 8 News cameraman and Audrey's working partner. Voiced by Joe Pantoliano.
  • Philippe Roache - The leader of the French secret service. He led the team hunting down the first Godzilla and later sent Monique to kill the second, but relented when the latter saved lives. Voiced by Keith Szarabajka.
  • Cameron Winter - A former classmate of Nick in college. He is a technological mogul whose desire is to control Godzilla for the fulfillment of his ulterior motives. Voiced by David Newsom.
  • Dale, Bill and Hank - Game hunters that came to New York to hunt for Godzilla. They serve as villains in the series. Dale is the leader of the group; Bill is the middle man; and Hank is the idiot of the trio. They are a parody of the characters from King of the Hill. Dale is voiced by Ronny Cox, Bill is voiced by Tom Kenny, Hank is voiced by Bob Joles.
  • Leviathon Aliens - An ancient race of psychically powerful extraterrestrials. One of their spaceships, called the Leviathan, crashed on Earth during the early Cretaceous Period and remained hidden until the Cenozoic Era.
