The legacy of Gamera modestly carried on and particularly in America. After Gamera's first film premiered in U.S. theaters in a somewhat modified form, the first five sequels were shown constantly on local television stations in the '70s and '80s. The [[ClipShow aforementioned]] eighth film Film/GameraSuperMonster aired on Creator/{{MTV}} at a time when they rarely showed movies and, was also released to local television. In the late '80s, the seventh film Film/GameraVsZigra had its [[MissingEpisode long overdue]] release along with differently edited/dubbed versions of four other Gamera films via airings on Creator/USANetwork and local stations as well as video releases from new distributor Sandy Frank. Gamera was introduced to a new audience when the Sandy Frank versions aired as episodes of the series ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. On the show, it was derided for having too many [[{{Narm}} cringe-worthy Gamera moments]] (One infamous scene had Gamera swing up and down a pole, Film/{{Gymkata}} style), bad dubbing, and [[PanderingToTheBase too much emphasis on the kids]].

[[GrowingTheBeard Then, the Heisei series came.]] After a long wait, it was decided that the Gamera series should be revived. A man named Creator/ShusukeKaneko, famous for the Manga/DeathNote movies, was chosen to direct a new Gamera trilogy. What we got was a drastic change from the previous series. The movies became much darker in tone, and the monsters ended up becoming much more abstract than anything previously seen in a {{kaiju}} movie. The trilogy has been acclaimed by critics from both sides of the Pacific.
