Godzilla

UP FROM the depths. Thirty stories high. Breathing fire. His head in the sky. Godzilla. Godzilla. Godzilla. And…Godzuki, something-for-the-young-uns can’t-fly-properly-or-do-the-fire-thing annoyoing baby sidekick. The ‘Zilla hisself was, in this cartoon incarnation, called up at the touch of a button by a bearded professor and his wife, token black assistant and their cute, forever-in-jeopardy son, who lived on a yacht and had an unerring capacity for encountering sea-monster related shite. Not Will and Joe’s finest hour.

    So, who messed Godzilla up worse: Hanna-Barbera, or Devlin and Emmerich?

    Will and Joe couldn’t use his trademark roar – whereas that was about all Dean and Roland used…
