Godzilla! Godzilla! Godzilla!

There is no doubt that Godzilla has become an identifiable pop culture icon…

Here is Godzilla receiving his star on Hollywood Blvd. He is the first giant monster, and so far the only giant monster to receive the honor. Suck on that Mothra!

Apparently this picture was snapped on the lot at Toho Studios. Godzilla appears to be teaching the kids Japanese characters. When is someone going to give Godzilla an honorary degree already?

I got rid of my cable years ago, and haven’t seen a new episode of the Simpsons forever. But the Simpsons sure as hell have given me some great laughs! One of my favourite episodes is where The Simpsons go to Japan. Homer buys a square watermelon, Bart and Homer get thrown into prison where they learn Origami and Kabuki, the entire family work in a fish gutting facility and are contestants on a hellish Japanese game show! The episode ends with The Simpsons flying back home. As they are taking off, the Godzilla-related turbulence emergency light begins to flash!

Hey!! Once upon a time I had this 6ft high inflatable Godzilla! I love how Godzilla is attacking the child on the cover! “Repair Patch Included”.
