Godzilla is an American animated adventure TV series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for NBC's Saturday morning children's programming. It ran from 1978 to 1979, airing 26 episodes.

A team of scientists consisting of Quinn Darien, Brock Borden, and their leader, Carl Majors, travel aboard their boat, the Calico. They always manage to run into a monster, and when that happens, Carl uses a special handheld signal to call on Godzilla for help. It's unexplained why he does this, but it may have something to do with them babysitting his apparent relation, Godzooky, although the team usually places Godzooky under the guardianship of Quinn's younger brother, Pete.




The music was composed by Hoyt Curtin, credited as musical director, with supervision from Paul DeKorte.
