This year’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters movie reminded us all about the destructive nature of Godzilla and his fellow monsters, but a new puppet series gives fans the softer side of the famous kaiju creatures.
The adorable series features puppet versions of Godzilla and his offspring Godzilla Junior and Minilla, performed by the puppet theater group Atelier Koganemushi.
The first episode features Godzilla teaching Godzilla Junior and Minilla monster skills like roaring and aiming their atomic fire breath at targets. While Junior’s is a star student, Minilla needs a bit of help.
They also really like to snack on fruit after a long day of training. Who knew Godzilla loves grapes?
Other Godzilla monsters make cameos including the character Hedorah teaching a young Hedorah baby the ways of the world.
