Godzooky (ゴズーキー is a juvenile Gozūkī)monster that appeared in the 1978 Hanna-Barbera television series Godzilla. A relative of Godzilla, he primarily serves as the show's comic relief, but does help save the day from time to time.
Design[edit | edit source]
Godzooky is loosely based on Minilla, with bat-like skin membranes under his arms that grant him the ability to fly through the air, similar to Varan. He differs from Varan, however, in that he flaps his arms up and down in order to fly, while Varan simply leaps into the air and glides from one point to another. He resembles the version of Godzilla in the series, with green skin and a row of dorsal fins running from the top of his head down his back.
Origins[edit | edit source]
Godzooky is a juvenile kaiju related to Godzilla that had become stuck in a coral reef before being rescued by the crew of the scientific research vessel Calico. This gesture allowed the team to befriend Godzilla, who began protecting the ship and its crew when Godzooky chose to stay with them.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
Smoke ring breath[edit | edit source]
Godzooky can release streams of black smoke rings from his mouth similar to Minilla's, which often ends with him coughing. He can breath fire like Godzilla when he is strong enough, and indeed does so only once in the series for a brief moment, in "The Beast of Storm Island". However, his fire-breathing power (and super-strength that came with it) came about due to an outside source: exposure to the vapors from a pit on Storm Island that Axor used to restore his power and energy. The ability then wore off a short time after that.
Blood relation[edit | edit source]
Godzooky has the ability to summon his Uncle Godzilla, even over great distances, by roaring loudly.
Flight[edit | edit source]
Godzooky can fly by flapping his arms up and down and using the wing flaps on his arms.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Godzilla is sometimes referred to as Godzooky's "cousin," however, this relationship is never elaborated upon and there is no indication that Godzilla himself has any other known relatives. It is more likely that the term is used figuratively, with no actual blood relationship between the monsters, which are simply of related species.
- The wing of a child's plush toy of Godzooky is briefly shown in episode 6 of Godzilla Singular Point, sitting alongside plushes of Godzilla, the Giant Turtle, Komodithrax, and her egg from Godzilla: The Series.
