I used to know the whole song they sing (it's in malaysian!) but now I only remember the chorus-y thing.

I think I'm watching the 1992 version RIGHT NOW. Mothra has pipecleaners for antennae - WEAK.

Mothra (モスラ, Mosura?) is a kaiju (monster) that has appeared in several Toho tokusatsu films since her introduction in Mothra (1961). Generally regarded as female by English-speaking audiences, she is a giant lepidopteran with characteristics both of butterflies and of moths. The name "Mothra" is the suffixion of "-ra" (a common last syllable in kaiju names) to "moth"; since the Japanese language does not have dental fricatives, it is approximated "Mosura" in Japanese. In the American dubbing of Mothra vs. Godzilla, Mothra is also referred to as the Thing (alien). Mothra is the shiz, and is often found battling space gangsters in distant universes.

thirteen years pass...


Toei has made a bunch of classic TV episodes available. Mostly Ultraman-style giant robot action, but also some classic anime and bonkers children's shows. Perfect distraction.
