Godzilland

Godzilland (ゴジランド, Gojirando),[1] or Godzillaland, refers to a series of Japanese children's educational television series produced by Toho and based on the Godzilla franchise. The first series, a trivia show titled Adventure! Godzilland (冒険!ゴジランド, Bōken! Gojirando), aired on TV Tokyo in 1992. The series was intended to promote the film Godzilla vs. Mothra, and featured both live-action and chibi-style[2] animated segments. Toho then produced a second series, Adventure! Godzilland 2 (冒険!ゴジランド2, Bōken! Gojirando Tsū), which aired in 1993 as a promotion for Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II.
