There is a lot of love for Godzilla these days, what with Godzilla Minus One and the Godzilla v Kong X, or whatever it’s called, and I’m told I will love both.

I’m a big G-Fan, mostly because of the Showa era of Godzilla (1954-1975) and I love the stop motion animation era of Kong movies.

Now, if you aren’t familiar with the stop motion animation  era of Kong movies, it consists of the original King Kong (1933), Son of Kong, (Later in 1933) and Mighty Joe Young  (1949. There is nobody named Kong in it, but it might as well have been a Kong movie.)

The original Godzilla vs. Kong movie (1966) sucked. Maybe even by my standards. (I still love it though.)  It was just a Japanese comedy they threw Godzilla and Kong into, and the Kong costume looked surprisingly bad for a TOHO Studios (notable for monster costumes) standards. Which makes it extra funny, that people have made two American Godzilla vs. Kong movies now.

Godzilla Minus One is a serious  Godzilla movie, like the original Gojira. It’s not a goofy one like the later Showa era  Godzillas. So, I’m torn, because I love the goofy ones best, but Godzilla Minus One won an OSCAR!! So, I should probably watch it.

But me not seeing those movies yet pales in comparison to the amount of people who have not seen GOGOLA !!

I’m included with those people, and I think I should type out GOGOLA in all caps every time I say it, because it’s that important.

All the information I have about GOGOLA is from people posting about it on the internet, so I have no verifiable sources for this information,  So, whatever you read here, please take it with a GOGOLA-size grain of salt:

GOGOLA came out in India in 1966.

GOGOLA was India’s attempt at doing their version of a classic Japanese Kaiju Eija (Giant monster) movie.

GOGOLA was directed by Balwanti B. Dave ( His last name seems to be Dave for some reason. That might be a made-up last name.), the producer was T.M Rai, and the music was by another guy who had Dave for a last name. (All of this is from this movie’s entry on WIKIZZILLA, so you can look it up there  if you think I’m lying.)

GOGOLA was such a failure in India, it was never dubbed and released in the U.S.

GOGOLA was also such a crushing disaster to the people who made it, they never produced another movie.

GOGOLA is the only giant monster-Bollywood-combo-Beach-party film that has ever been made. (So, it NEEDS to be found.)

GOGOLA was said to be found recently by a guy on the Lost Media Reddit page.  He said his grandfather had the reels of the film, and he just found them. (That’s a weird thing to lie about, but everyone thinks he’s lying.)

GOGOLA has been compared to Barney the Dinosaur. That might have contributed to his failure as a significant menace, but WE’VE STILL GOTTA FIND HIM!!

Now, if I do find any proof  that GOGOLA  still exists, or an actual print of the film, I promise, I will let you know. For now, I will share with you these GOGOLA movie ads that I have found.

If YOU happen to find GOGOLA, please contact me at nmmoose.com.
