Special Effects artist Eiji Tsuburaya originally wanted Godzilla to be a giant octopus. He would later get his wish of having one though in the movies King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962), a deleted scene in Frankenstein Conquers the World (1965), and The War of the Gargantuas (1966), where the octopus would meet his end. It was even given the name Oodako. The octopus also made an appearance in the TV series Urutora Q (1965), and was up for consideration to be Godzilla's opponent in Godzilla: Final Wars (2004).
I can't believe that Godzilla was the only surviving member of its species... But if we continue conducting nuclear tests, it's possible that another Godzilla might appear somewhere in the world again.
When the first fact-finding crew helicopters out to Odo Island, they get out in a Sikorsky H-19. But when the storm hits, the cheap toy helicopter that's destroyed is a Sikorsky H-34.
The German version significantly toned down the movie's dark and tragic tone and its thematic allegory, removing scenes referencing the A-bombs and H-bombs and altering the dialogue -- for example, in the famous scene during Godzilla's rampage, where a mother attempts to comfort her children by saying that they will soon be reunited with their deceased father, the woman's line is changed to "Don't worry, the mean Godzilla won't get you, your mother will protect you."
