"Smack It, Godzilla Brothers!" (かっとばせ!ゴジラ三兄弟 (さんきょうだい) (まき),   Kattobase Gojira Sankyōdai no Maki, lit. "Volume of: Smack It! Three Godzilla Brothers") is the third overall episode of Godziban and the second episode of its Go! Go! Godzilla-kun segment. Toho's Godzilla Channel uploaded it to YouTube on August 23, 2019, with an English-subtitled version on the GODZILLA OFFICIAL by TOHO channel following on September 3, 2021. The Godzilla Channel re-aired an English-dubbed version of the episode on November 1, 2019, as the thirteenth episode, and GODZILLA OFFICIAL by TOHO posted a slightly longer version on November 12, 2021, adding a cold open originally filmed for "Red Balloon" in which the Three Godzilla Brothers rapidly study English.


Godzilla-kun calls over his brothers, Minilla and Little, and tells them that they must train to become cool and awesome monsters. He explains that part of a Godzilla's charm is his strong tail, and Minilla and Little shake their tails. Little asks what they'll be using their tails for, and Godzilla-kun demonstrates by throwing a rock into the air and striking it with his tail, sending it flying out of sight: a home run. Amazed by the display, Little is the first to try. Godzilla-kun throws the rock up and Little smacks it with his tail, causing it to fly a short distance before rolling into a hole in the ground. Godzilla-kun declares it a hole-in-one and Little dances in celebration. Minilla tries next, but swings his tail too early, causing the rock to hit him on the head. Groaning that it was a disaster, Godzilla-kun throws the rock for him again, to much the same effect. Godzilla-kun says that he will teach him step-by-step, instructing him to bend over at the waist and steadily swing his tail. With Minilla shaking his tail back and forth, Godzilla-kun throws the rock to him, but it is sent flying back into his face. He congratulates the monster before falling to the ground unconscious.

A short time later, Godzilla-kun tests the brothers' skills by having them strike three rocks in rapid succession. He attempts it himself first, knocking all three into the distance. As with before, Little goes first, successfully hitting all three and achieving three holes-in-one. Minilla comments that it looks difficult to pull off, but that he will try his best. He begins to shake his tail and successfully hits the stones into the air, causing them to seemingly disappear. As Godzilla-kun wonders where they went, they fall back down from the sky and land on his head, and he again collapses. Suddenly, a Mothra larva, Moshu-Moshu, approaches the group and Little explains that she wants to hit the stones too. After asking her if she's sure, Godzilla-kun throws a rock and she strikes it with her elongated body, sending it soaring through the air. She says that she wants to hit more, and Godzilla-kun rapidly serves her stones. Mothra manages to hit each one, causing them to land in front of them in the shape of another larva. As Mothra approaches her creation, the brothers exclaim that it is a perfect Mothra statue and that she is a true artist. Godzilla-kun tells her that she is amazing.

The episode concludes with a Grandpa Hedo segment:

Young Hedo: “Hey, Grandpa Hedo. To where do we roam?
Grandpa Hedo: “Well... Once we arrive you will also arrive at the answer... as to why it was our destination all along.
Young Hedo: “Okie Hedokie!
