Happy Birthday Godzilla!

“If you know what’s best, then you better wish Godzilla a very happy birthday today. The King of Monsters is turning 62 and marking more than six decades of creepy kaiju fun.

“Godzilla, or rather Gojira, was born in November 1954 by the creative minds at Toei Studios. Producer Tomoyuki Tanaka created the monster after being inspired by other monster flicks such as The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms. Tanaka also sourced his atomic beast from a much more terrifying ordeal, and that was the Daigo Fukuryū Maru incident of March 1954.

“For those who aren’t aware, the incident is a post-WWII event which marked the first non-combatant casualties via atomic weapons. A crew of 23 Japanese fishermen were exposed to nuclear radiation after the U.S. tested a thermonuclear weapon. The bomb’s fallout contaminated the boat and its crew, leaving the men with acute radiation poisoning. One of the fisherman died from the illness, and the ordeal reminded a recovering Japan that the threat of nuclear weapons was still very real.”
