The Kaiju Valentine Show

The Show Was Aired On ABC TV.

The Kaiju Valentine Show aired on ABC on January 30, 1976. It was one of two pilots produced during the planning stages for The Showa Era. The other pilot was Godzilla: Sex And Violence, which aired in 1977.



In this half-hour Valentine's Day special featuring the Kaiju Monsters, People and special guest star Mia Farrow, host Rokuro Ibuki has writer's block -- he can't think of material for the show that represents the true meaning of love. He asks the other Monsters, People and Mia for assistance, with mixed results.
