Gamera: The Children's Friend


Gamera is a flying turtle who had many movies made about him back in the Sixties. Gamera has been hiding in our Glossary for a while, but we decided that it was time for him to come out and meet the kids. Although he looks scarey, he is really a good monster who helps children in danger.

We aren't sure whether Gamera is really a marine turtle. Although he spends some time in the ocean, he also walks around on land and flies by spinning around and shooting out flames! The marine turtles we know don't do this. (Maybe they're just shy.)

If you want to learn more about Gamera, you can probably rent Gamera movies from your video store. We like to rent a Gamera movie once in a while to see how the Big Fellow is doing.
