Godzilla fights pollution in the form of living sludge found by a scientist (Akira Yamauchi) and his son (Toshie Kimura).

Curator's note by Markus Nornes: This is already the 11th film in the Godzilla franchise. In it, Banno tries to mix things up with an eco-critical theme and flights of animation. This was from the kids' Gozilla era, so it may not be horrifying; however, it's immensely pleasurable.
