What does GAMERA mean?
- Gamera (ガメラ) is a kaiju originating from a series of Japanese tokusatsu films of the same name. Gamera first appeared in Daiei Film's 1965 film Gamera, the Giant Monster, which was initially produced to rival the success of Toho's Godzilla. Since then, Gamera has gained fame and notoriety as a Japanese icon in his own right. The character has appeared in other media such as comic books and video games. In the United States, Gamera attained prominence during the 1970s due to the burgeoning popularity of UHF television stations featuring Saturday afternoon matinee showcases like Creature Double Feature and later in the 1990s when five Gamera films were featured on the TV show Mystery Science Theater 3000.
