Scientists experimenting with changes in weather on a tropical island get more than they bargained for when Godzilla shows up to battle humongous insects and protect his newborn child.
This was the second film of the Godzilla series to be sold directly to TV; the first one was Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster (1966).

Riko Matsumiya: No, it appears to be teaching its son.
Goro Maki: Teaching its son?

In the American version, Saeko's name was changed to Reiko and the monsters Kumonga's and Karakuras' names were changed to Spiga and Gimantis respectively.
