  • show Description
  • Picking up where the blockbuster motion picture left off, Godzilla: The Series is a new fast-paced animated adventure series that pits humanity against a new generation of giant monsters. Born of radiation on a French Polynesian island, GODZILLA wreaks havoc on the city while attempting to find a nest to give birth to its young. The overgrown lizard appears unstoppable, until biologist NICK TATOPOULOS and French Secret Service operative PHILLIPE ROACHE team up to take down the beast. Life in the greater Tri-State area begins to return to normal, well almost! It appears the late, great King of the Monsters has left behind an heir to the throne. During a routine clean-up sweep of the city's decimated subway tunnels, Nick encounters the hatchling during its crucial imprinting stage. Rather than attacking Nick, the creature actually bonds with him as a bizarre pseudo-parent figure. Parting company with the military task force headed by Major Hicks, Nick recruits his own environmentally-directed research outfit - HEAT(Humanitarian Ecological Analysis Team). Recruiting a few of his colleagues from the original Godzilla. research team, as well as some new allies, Nicksets out to study not only this new generation of Godzilla., but also to investigate the increasing reports of unusual beasties and other environmental anomalies popping up across the globe. Monsters of all types - natural, unnatural, man-made, alien, regal, reptilian, mammalian, insectoid, flying, floating, poisonous, electrified - have begun appearing on the scene weekly. Is it a result of nuclear testing? Or a hole in the ozone layer? Whatever their origin, the beasts have humanity terrified and desperately in need of heroes. Officially an extension of the New York Institute of Technology's "World Assistance Program," HEAT is soon to become the Earth's foremost Anti Monster Squad. Setting up a small research compound inside a derelict ferry terminal on the tip of Staten Island. HEAT headquarters quickly becomes a staging area for defending the world against monstrous threats and also for careful study of the young mutant reptile. Besides the research compound, their main HQ is a barnacle-covered vessel called "The Heat-Seeker." The military is not a strong believer in HEAT or the value of Godzilla. While Major Hicks is willing to give Nick a little leeway with his pet project - just so long as the pet doesn't level any major cities - his superiors put their faith in more conventional weaponry. Each exciting episode of Godzilla: The Series was a pulse-pounding monster-hunt driven by our investigative HEAT team (accompanied by their 180-foot giant reptile), as they travel the globe defending mankind against mutant threats.moreless

    Trivia (8)

    • Audrey is still a reporter, despite quiting at the end of the movie. Also, Hicks was a U.S. Colonel in the film, but is a Major here.

    • In this episode the Bacillus creature is portrayed as green and round-shaped. In real life, Bacillus is a bacteria that is rod-shaped.

    • Area 51 is THE most heavily guarded facility in the United States, if you went in and tried to get some information you could be shot and killed without question. The base's security measures include trip wires, infrared radar, guard towers, tanks, aircraft, ground troops, drone gun turrets, not to mention the whole area is a No Fly Zone; any non-US military aircraft is shot down without any warning. If you ask me, both H.E.A.T. and the conspiracy theorists entry to the base shouldn't have been that easy. Plus, any surviving intruders that caught at Area 51 are immediately arrested, interrogating, most of which disappear without a trace.

    • At one point, Nick refers to H.E.A.T. as Humanitarian Ecological Analysis Team, despite the fact it really stands for Humanitarian Environmental Analysis Team.

    • Craven considers the alien conspiracy theorists to be crack-pots, despite meeting aliens himself along with the rest of H.E.A.T.

    • This mistake accures whilst H.E.A.T. is being chased by the silver monsters: At one point instead of being chased by multiple beings, they are chased by the Siamese Monster (The multiple silver creatures fused together after Godzilla fries them, which happens later in the episode).

    • In Navajo, the word Ts-eh-Go means 'the Scorpion.'

    • How did Randy know so much about what was going on with the scorpions and the different waves? Does he have Psychic abilities that no one knows about?

    Allusions (5)

    • The group of redneck hunters from Pennsylvania are named Hank, Bill, and Dale. This is a reference to the main characters that appear on the animated comedy show, King of the Hill.

    • The fiancé of Elsie in this episode is named Larry Cohen. That is also the name of the writer and director of the 1982 film Q: The Winged Serpent. The movie features a flying beast called Quetzalcoatl that nests in the rooftops of New York, exactly like the creature that appears in this episode.

    • The Ice Borer mutants that appear in this episode are a reference to the penguin-eating, burrowing creature in Antarctica that Discover magazine ran an article about for April Fools Day. They used a modified image of a naked mole rat to showcase the newly discovered creature.

    • Clash of the Titans: The episode's title, Cash of the Titans, is a parody of the 1981 cult classic film, Clash of the Titans, directed by Desmond Davis.

    • Gamera: The idea of a giant turtle is an obvious reference to Gamera. Created in 1965 to rival the popularity of Godzilla, Daikaijû Gamera gained fame in Japan and the United States, later releasing more daikaiju eigas or giant-monster movies. The writers used this episode to somewhat fulfill the desire to see Godzilla and Gamera battle it out.
