Chongo would be most gratified by the results shown on this chart, a charting of the popularity of the greatest city-stomping movie monsters in our culture.
Who's number One?
King Kong rates way higher than the others. The odd thing, though, is that he doesn't appear at all on the chart until the 1940s. That's very odd indeed, because the original King Kong movie came out in the early 30s as far as I know!
Something is seriously wrong with the search engine on that charting system.
The other really odd thing is that Rodan has a big spike of popularity around 1920, long before any movies were ever made about him!
Furthermore, Godzilla isn't scoring nearly as high as he should for some reason. He ought to be as well known as King Kong, in my opinion, or very nearly so.
