About Gamera

It is a giant flying turtle-like creature from a popular “daikaiju eiga” monster movie series produced by the Daiei Motion Picture Company in Japan. Created in 1965 to rival Toho Studios’ success with Godzilla during the kaiju boom of the mid to late 1960s, Gamera has gained fame and notoriety as a Japanese icon in his own right.

In the United States, the monster rose to prominence during the 1970s due to the growing popularity of UHF television stations with Saturday afternoon matinee showings as the Creature Double Feature and later in the 1990s when several of his films they were featured on the cult TV show Mystery Science Theater 3000. Despite being kid-friendly, the monster action is full of gore, though none of the monsters have red blood and are mostly various pastel colors.
