Godzilla Island (ゴジラアイランド Gojira Airando?) was a television show spinoff of the Godzilla franchise. It premiered on October 6, 1997, and ran for a total of 256 three-minute episodes, finishing on September 30, 1998.
Set in 2097, most of Earth's kaiju (monsters) live on an island out in the Pacific Ocean called Godzilla Island; of which is monitored by G-Guard. The creatures living on the island include Godzilla, Godzilla Junior, Mothra, Mothra Leo, Rodan, King Ghidorah, Mecha-King Ghidorah, Mechagodzilla (Heisei version), Anguirus, Gigan, Hedorah, Destoroyah, Baragon, King Caesar, Moguera, Megalon, Gorosaurus, Kamacuras and Jet Jaguar. Torema and Zaguresu's kaiju (or monsters) include a black-coloured Mechagodzilla (Showa version), a fully mechanical Mecha-King Ghidorah (called Hyper-Mecha King Ghidorah), Kumasogami (titled "Dororin" in the show) and Gororin (a sentient ball-shaped cactus).
An unusually large number of tie-in toys were produced for this series by Bandai toys, because this series was, in fact, created through the use of action figures.
In 2007, a 4-disc DVD set including every episode of the show was released in Japan at a price of 16000 yen (approx. $160).
