Godziban is a fan film submitted to the Godzilla-based GEMSTONE Creators Audition campaign, uploaded to YouTube on March 20, 2019. It carried over characters from Atelier Koganemushi's 2004 puppet show Gekigoji, and led to Toho greenlighting Godziban as a web series. It marked the debuts of four of the five segments in the show's first season, with the exception of Grandpa Hedo's Travels.


In the Go! Go! Godzilla-kun segment, Godzilla-kun, Minilla, Little, and Moshu-Moshu introduce themselves. Godzilla-kun proposes a race; while he and Little start with a huge lead, Moshu-Moshu soon rockets past them. A segment of Grandpa Hedo follows. In the Attention! Godzilla segment, a young girl with a love of dogs encounters Kamachi, left in a box on the side of the road. Shocked at his appearance, she walks past him at first, but ultimately decides to take him, the monster riding in her backpack. In the Go! Jet Jaguar segment, Jet Jaguar faces questions at a press conference. In the Moshi Moth segment, Moshu-Moshu and her twin Moshuu-Moshuu communicate via string telephone. After a "Godzidan" song and dance, the pilot closes with another Grandpa Hedo segment.
