Godzilla Island 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 monsters live on an island out in the Pacific Ocean. The creatures living on the island include:Godzilla, Godzilla Junior, Mothra, Battra, Rodan, King Ghidorah, Mecha-King Ghidorah, Mechagodzilla, Anguirus, Gigan, Hedorah, SpaceGodzilla, Destoroyah, Baragon, King Caesar, Moguera, Megalon, Gorosaurus, Kamacuras, Jet Jaguar, and Dogora.
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.
A CD of theme music, mostly composed by Akira Ifukube was released in 1997 by Polygram entitled 'Welcome To Godzilla Island'. However, most of the music was provided by U2 guitarist, The Edge.
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).
Godzilla Island consists of 256 episodes, each of which is 3 minutes long. The episodes make up 22 complete stories of varying lengths - one is only 3 episodes long, while the final arc is 23 episodes, so stories can take anywhere between half a week and three weeks to fully air.
