This was the first film that featured Kenpachirô Satsuma to wear the Smog Monster suit. Though small in stature, Satsuma was quite strong for his size, and was the only one capable of supporting the 300 pound suit for long periods of time. (Though there were some wire works to help support.) Satsuma then went on to wear the Gigan costume for the next two films. After a break of over 10 years, he would be asked to wear the Godzilla costume for Godzilla 1985, and would continue to wear it through the Heisei series, and retired after Godzilla vs. Destroyah in 1995.
It probably came from a sticky, dark planet far, far away. Now go to sleep.
When the child notices Godzilla from far away on the roller coaster ride, it is clear that "Godzilla" in this case is just a badly drawn blotch of paint, which also appears to be far too dark for its supposed environment.
On the original Japanese trailer, the director's name is given as "Yoshimitsu Sakano." In the Japanese version, as well as in Toho's own English version, he is credited as "Yoshimitsu Banno." The American International release credits him as "Yoshimitu Banno."
At the end of the original Japanese and international English versions, right after the closing shot of Godzilla walking away into the open field, a still of Hokusai's ancient ukiyo-e illustration, "Mt Fuji from the Offing in Kanagawa"/"The Big Wave," which depicts a huge wave about to trample on fragile ships on the waters below (with Mount Fuji in the background), can be seen. This was followed by a title card (against a black background) reading "Soshite mo ippiki?"/"And yet another one?" The film then closes with the same still shot from the film's prologue of Hedorah rising out of the water, with "The End" superimposed. In American International's US version, the scenes were cut out. After Godzilla walks away into the open field, the film simply cuts to a black background, with a superimposed "The End - an American International Release" dissolving in. Then, the film fades out, and you can still hear the rest of Riichiro Manabe's closing music for another 10 to 15 seconds (where the original closing scenes used to be).
