About Gamera

It is a giant, flying, turtle-like creature from a popular "Daikaiju eiga" monster movie series produced by Daiei Motion Picture Company in Japan. Founded in 1965 to match Toho Studios' success with Godzilla during the kaiju boom of the mid to late 1960s, Gamera achieved fame and prominence as a Japanese icon in his own right.

In the United States, the monster came to prominence in the 1970s due to the growing popularity of UHF television networks with Saturday afternoon matinee screenings as the Creature Double Feature, and later in the 1990s when several of his films were featured on the cult TV show Mystery Science Theater 3000. While kid-friendly, the monster action is full of blood, although none of the monsters have red blood and are mostly different pastel colors.
