SYNOPSIS:  Hedora is a Smog Monster. Godzilla is the Defender of Japan's Environment. They tussle.

No, seriously, that is the plot. Hedora is killing people. Godzilla fights Hedora (with the help of Kenny, the ubiquitous little boy).

"Alas, Poor Yorick"

Suicide via Committee
The mob decides to attack Hedora with torches. Smart. It flies over the crowd, gassing them all to death.

Stupidest-Looking Monster

Hedorah -- Transform!
He's not just a smog monster, he's also a ... uh ... different smog monster....

Smithee Award Winner! Worst Science

Not Just Smog, But Radioactive Smog
The scientist explains nuclear fission, complete with animated visual aids. Then leaps to the conclusion that Hedora uses it to fly.


3...2...1...Ignition...We Have Bullsh*t!
Hedora files away. Godzilla can't let THAT happen, so he points his radioactive breath at the ground and FLIES AFTER HIM, backwards! No, uh-uh, don't buy it.
