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, 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).
