Episode Guide

  • Season 2
    • The Deadly Asteroid
      Temperatures across the Earth begin dropping to unusually low levels, and the Calico crew travel to the North Pole to investigate a UFO sighting, which they suspect to be connected to the temperature aberrations in some way. The crew then discovers that numerous icebergs are present, and the water levels are dropping at an alarming rate due to the freezing of the oceans. The source of the problem is also discovered hidden in one of the icebergs, which turns out to be a spaceship containing an advanced race of cold temperature dwelling, semi-humanoid hostile aliens referred to as the Ice People, who hail from the frigid asteroid Frios. By using their ultra-sophisticated magnetic wave generators, the Ice People declare to the Calico crew their intentions to direct Frios to Earth, thereby causing the planet to enter a new Ice Age to make the world more palatable to the aliens for future conquest [actually, bringing such a large asteroid near the Earth would cause far more damage than a temperature reduction, as the conflicting gravitational forces would tear both celestial bodies apart; the aliens need to improve their scientific research, and also need to explain why they can't simply find another asteroid to colonize, as there must be literally millions of suitable floating rocks in the galaxy]. Although the crew is taken captive, Godzooky calls Godzilla, who confronts the aliens' super weaponry. Unfortunately, the Ice People use their cold generating technology to encase Godzilla in ice, sending him into suspended animation. Escaping from the aliens and returning to the Calico, the crew has Brock and Pete melt the ice surrounding Godzilla via the heated exhaust from their mini-sub, and the Kaiju King is then instructed to perform the (rather ludicrous) feat of turning the Ice Peoples' spaceship upside-down, a feat that reverses the magnetic polarity of the vessel and sends Frios away from the Earth, thereby negating the temperature reduction. Intimidated by the power of Earth's guardian kaiju, the Ice People summarily call off their plans of conquest and retreat back into outer space (and probably realized they should have just found one of the millions of other suitable asteroids floating about in the void of outer space in the first place, rather than going through all of the elaborate trouble of reducing the temperature of an entire inhabited planet, and subjugating its sizable populace on top of it all).moreless
    • Island Of Doom
      Island Of Doom
      Episode 12

      An evil paramilitary organization calling itself COBRA has acquired a series of ICBM missiles, and threatens to launch them on all the major cities in the world unless the United Nations accedes to their demands for world domination. The Calico crew discovers the secret island base of COBRA, and are taken prisoner by the organization. They still manage to summon Godzilla to the island, and upon arriving, the Kaiju King battles and defeats the organization's large military arsenal. Upon reaching COBRA's nuclear reactor, Godzilla destroys it, thereby ending the organization's threat, and after rescuing his human allies, they see to it that the villains are arrested by a United Nations Task Force.

    • Valley Of The Giants
      While searching for the headwaters of the Mitibu River, a group of workers are suddenly attacked by a colony of giant ants that appear out of a crevice in a nearby mountainside, forcing the men to flee. Investigating the incident, the Calico crew journey within the crevice and discover a hidden valley where giant insects dominate, and an inconvenient earthquake seals the fissure and traps the crew within. Dr. Darian discovers that when sunlight is filtered through the strange clouds that surround the valley, a chemical reaction occurs in the insects that vastly increases their size. Menaced by the valley's giant ants and bees, Godzilla is called, and he quickly dispatches the bees. After hurling away a tank-sized beetle that attacked the crew, Godzilla finds himself in battle with the king of the valley's population of giant insects, an enormous spider (spiders are actually arachnids, not insects, but the two are nevertheless close relatives). Godzilla is defeated when he is bitten by the spider and poisoned by its venom, and the paralyzed Kaiju King is webbed up. When the crew is attacked by the giant spider and Godzooky is also webbed up, causing him to cry for help, Godzilla hears and forcefully metabolizes the venom. Freeing himself from the web cocoon with his laser beams, Godzilla rushes to the crew's rescue and saves Godzooky. However, the spider is then exposed to more sunlight, causing it to grow even larger than Godzilla. During the ensuing battle with the monster arachnid, Godzilla tricks it into biting itself, thus causing the spider to be paralyzed by its own venom [but wouldn't the spider be naturally immune to the effects of its own poison? I guess we weren't supposed to think about that]. Godzilla then smashes his way through the rocks trapping the crew in the valley, freeing his friends and then sealing the entrance again, trapping the giant insects permanently within.moreless

    • Ghost Ship
      Ghost Ship
      Episode 9
      While sailing the Pacific, the Calico crew discover what appears to be a World War II submarine encased in ice, and they summon Godzilla, who frees the old vessel by means of his fiery breath. The crew of the submarine is discovered to be alive and in suspended animation, and after 60 years on ice, they are awakened by the Calico crew. The submarine crewmen incorrectly believe that the war is still going on, causing them to inadvertently release a torpedo, which heads towards the Calico. Godzilla intercepts the torpedo and brings it underwater, but it explodes before he can safely dispose of it, stunning the King of the Monsters in the process. The resulting shock waves disturb a giant octopus, which comes to the surface and grabs the submarine in its tentacles. Godzooky manages to revive Godzilla, who grapples with the octopus and returns it to its underwater cavern, and then sealing it inside with his laser beam vision. Finally, the submarine crew is taken back to civilization to be assimilated into the modern time period.moreless
    • Calico Clones
      Calico Clones
      Episode 8
      When the Calico is sent on a top secret mission to a government controlled oil field, the crew is captured by an evil scientist called Votrang [why the government sent the Calico crew instead of the CIA or the Navy SEALS is beyond me, as is the fact that they would take Pete and Godzooky on such a dangerous mission in the first place, considering society's current attitude against youth as helpless innocents; this made about as much sense as all of those token women characters added into period film adaptations of various novels written in the 19th and very early 20th centuries simply to allow for romantic tension with the male characters in the script, including the several film versions of The Lost World produced through the decades; then again, this series was geared towards younger audiences, which may explain this conundrum]. Votrang utilized his scientific genius to create sentient but subservient clones of the entire crew, including Godzooky, to replace the real crew in the hopes of learning the location of the oil field. Upon discovering Votrang's plans and escaping, the crew covertly switch places with their clones and are placed aboard the Calico, and they quickly head for the oil field. Uncovering the counter-deception, Votrang sends his pet giant squid after the Calico, who summon Godzilla to battle the huge cephalopod. Godzilla swiftly defeats the squid by cruelly tying its tentacles into knots, and for his trouble Votrang is captured by the U.S. Navy.moreless
    • The Golden Gaurdians
      An archeological expedition in India is attacked by a giant golden animated Oriental statue, and this incident prompts an investigation by the Calico crew.
      Arriving in the Indian city of Kali-Noor, the crew discover that several giant golden guardian statues are being animated and controlled by a xenophobic Indian high priest utilizing a supernatural power object called the dreamstone, who is determined to scare away any outsiders to the sub-continent, whom he believes will covet the city's ancient treasures.
      Godzilla is called upon to battle one of the Golden Guardians, only to be immobilized by mystical beams of energy from the living statue's eyes, which encase the King of the Monsters in a shell of gold, thereby placing him in suspended animation. Although the Calico crew manages to shatter the dreamstone, this doesn't simply cause the Golden Guardians to become immobile once more, but instead results in the statues running amok. When the crew realize that the energy beams from the statue's eyes have the exact opposite frequency of Godzilla's ocular laser beams, Brock comes up with the plan to project the Calico's communications laser at the insensate kaiju with the aforementioned reverse frequency. When this is done, Godzilla is freed from the gold encasement, and the King then utilizes his fiery breath to melt each of the Golden Guardians into liquid slag.moreless
    • Moonlode
      Episode 6
      A lunar eclipse causes a violent moonquake [although how this happens is beyond me, since unlike the Earth, the moon is geologically dead and doesn't have quakes], which releases a hibernating, energized monster that lands on the Earth in the Pacific Ocean. Utilizing his gravitational powers, the moon monster creates a giant whirlpool that imperils the Calico and its crew. Calling on Godzilla, the Big G battles the moon monster and ultimately hurls the creature back into space, where he's recaptured by the moon's gravity (that was one hell of a feat, even for Godzilla!).moreless
    • The Beast Of Storm Island
      When the Calico is accidentally beached on an atoll called Storm Island, Capt. Majors, Dr. Darian, and Brock fall under the hypnotic control of the gigantic bipedal cobra-like kaiju called Axor, who uses this power to dominate the entire human population of the island. Axor acquires this ability from power enhancing vapors generated from within the interior of the monster's mountainous lair, and because of this power, Godzilla is unable to defeat Axor, and also falls under the beast's hypnotic thrall. Pete and Godzooky manage to escape from Axor, and flee to the monster's lair, where they too are exposed to the vapors, and it enhances their physical abilities to extraordinary levels. Utilizing these new abilities, they escape from entrapment in the pit where the vapors issue forth, and the newly empowered Godzooky finds that he is powerful enough to hold his own in battle with Axor (the Little G is finally able to breathe real fire rather than settle for mere puffs of smoke). However, the power gain proves temporary, and the youthful duo are forced to acquire Godzilla's assistance once more. Engaged in fierce battle with Axor, and constantly having to avoid his enemy's hypnotic beams, Godzilla turns part of a mountain into glass with his fiery breath, and when Axor accidentally strikes this large reflective surface with his beams, the energy is deflected back at the evil kaiju. As a result, Axor is destroyed, and both the island populace and the Calico crew are freed from their hypnotically induced enslavement.moreless
    • Pacific Peril
      Pacific Peril
      Episode 4
      A series of violent undersea earthquakes are causing large amounts of underwater volcanoes to appear in the Pacific Ocean depths, and this prompts the Calico to investigate. Traveling inside one of the volcanoes, the crew is menaced by a herd of large fire breathing reptiles who appear to thrive on the molten lava within. Godzilla is called to free the crew from the volcano, but another earthquake opens a fissure in the Earth that traps the Kaiju King deep within the planet's crust undersea. Meanwhile, the crew manages to evade the fire lizards and discover the source of the earthquakes, a fallen Jupiter Probe rocket, which has become imbedded within two coastal tectonic plates. Going aboard the rocket, the crew attempts to utilize it to return to the surface, but are unable to activate its damaged engines. Godzilla finally bursts free from the earth's crust and enters the volcano in time to save Godzooky from the fire lizards. The Big G then brings the rocket containing the Calico crew back to the surface, ending the earthquakes and sealing off the volcano in the process.moreless
    • Microgodzilla
      Episode 3
      As the Calico sails through a strange pink mist, a tiny fly is affected by the mysterious cloud and begins growing larger. When Godzilla is called to their aid, he drives the giant fly away but is also exposed to the mist himself in the process. Godzilla begins to grow smaller and smaller, and the crew also realize that wherever the fly is, it must be growing increasingly larger. To save Godzilla from shrinking into oblivion, and to protect themselves from the repeated attacks of the giant fly, Dr. Darian struggles to come up with an antidote by analyzing small samples of the pink mist. Godzilla eventually shrinks to the point that he is attacked by a mouse aboard the ship (how did it get aboard, and didn't the Calico crew ever see it before?), and as he continues shrinking even further, the crew loses track of his whereabouts. Later, the miniaturized Kaiju King is forced to battle a spider who ultimately webs him up (this arachnid, unlike Spiega, accurately spins its web from its posterior region, something the animators should be commended for not skimping on, though I strongly doubt a real spider can use its webbing in so versatile a fashion!). Luckily, the now extremely small Godzilla is found by Pete, who saves him from becoming the spider's next meal. Godzilla is placed in a beaker of fluid after shrinking to microscopic size as Dr. Darian continues to look for an antidote, only to be menaced by the bacteria that is also in the water, thus requiring the Big G to battle for his life against the hostile microorganisms. Finally, after applying an electrical charge to her antidote serum, Dr. Darian concocts a reversed version of the gas that returns Godzilla to his original height. This happened just in time, as the giant fly, now larger than ever, launches another attack on the Calico. Godzilla battles and subdues the fly long enough for Dr. Darian to expose it to her antidote, and the insect immediately shrinks back to its normal tiny size.moreless
    • The Cyborg Whale
      The Cyborg Whale
      Episode 2
      A robotic whale has been developed by unknown parties working for the government for the purpose of undersea plankton mining, and Brock and Pete are aboard doing a test drive (the whale is not truly a cyborg as the title of the episode proclaims, but is actually a robot; see the comments below). However, when the Cyborg Whale is struck by lightening during an unexpected thunderstorm, the robot's computers are damaged, and the device runs amok, heading on a deadly collision course with Honolulu. Although Godzilla is called to the rescue, he is unable to use his full power against the Cyborg Whale for fear of harming Brock and Pete, who are trapped inside, and the robotic cetacean's built-in weaponry fends off the Big G's attempts to halt it without damaging it. Finally, Brock and Pete manage to open the robot's porthole and are flown to safety by Godzooky. Thus, just before it reaches the coast of Hawaii, Godzilla is able to bring his full power to bear on the robot, and as a result of the Big G bending the whale's rear rudder fin, the robot swims in circles endlessly until it runs out of fuel. Then, the Cyborg Whale is able to be safely boarded and repaired.moreless
    • The City In The Clouds
      A freak cyclonic storm sucks both the Calico and Godzilla, the latter of whom unsuccessfully attempted to rescue the hapless ship from the vortex, into an amazing futuristic city that floats above the clouds, unseen by the surface world. The human looking cloud dwellers befriend the Calico crew, but the latter soon learns that the cloud city is repeatedly menaced by a giant, electricity spewing flying monster they call the Power Dragon. Godzilla defends the city, sending the Power Dragon fleeing back to the clouds. Awed by Godzilla, and realizing that the Kaiju King can protect the cloud city from the Power Dragon, the leader of the floating metropolis attempts to steal the signal device from Capt. Majors. Taking the Calico crew captive, the leader offers to return them to the surface in exchange for Godzilla's permanent servitude to the sky city, but they refuse. Later, the Power Dragon attacks the city again, and Godzilla battles the winged kaiju once more, this time sending the monster falling into the cyclonic rift, thus ending its threat to the cloud city for good. The crew managed to escape in the melee, and by diverting the city's power generators that control the vortex, they manage to send themselves, the Calico, and Godzilla back to the surface world, and the sky dwellers back to their floating city forever.moreless
