No, and if I didn't value my eyesight so much, I'd bleach my eyes so I never had to see that poop again.

Interesting creature that would serve up as a way for Ghidorah to exist in the 2nd era of the series, it was cool. But I prefer the original origins of the Golden Hydra better with him being a space traveler that destroys anything that he comes across with than a monster made by the mutation of three small creatures.

They look what would happen if you placed the Joker, a bat, and Alvin the Chipmunk in the telepods from The Fly.

They're made for Chibi dolls, but didn't really do that well as an origin for KG. The king of terror starting as three cute pets just isn't as spectacular as an errupting meteor.
Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

Megalon went into a bar and saw Gigan. Megalon said, " Again? I thought you gave this up."
" What can I say," Gigan asked. " I'm hooked."

The idea of Ghidorah being a fusion of 3 creatures is interesting. But being made of these little critters, no thanks. They're not even that cute, they look and sound kind of creepy. No idea what's up with the green mini-mullets, may've looked alright yellow like some of the concept art.

They're ... really kind of a bonkers element in that movie, and not bonkers in a riffing-on-'60s-Godzilla-sci-fi way most of the other elements are.

The most I can say about them is that they don't bring the movie down. They're just kind of a weird, ignorable plot devise. I like the quiet piano Ghidorah-theme music cue they get though.
