The alien invader Rodak plots to conquer the Earth. He first warns the Mura family (father Atsushi, mother Tomoko and son Mikko) of their invasion, and demonstrates his powers by transporting them to a prehistoric jungle and destroying a Giant Dinosaur (in reality, Agon, the title monster of a serialized Godzilla-like TV movie.) before their very eyes. But they will not agree to surrender to Rodak, so hope comes in the form of Goldar, an armored, golden giant with long hair and antennas. He and his human-sized wife Silvar, both created by the wizard Earth (who sure enough lives deep beneath the Earth), are sent to defend our world against Rodak. They befriend Atsushi and Mikko, the latter has Rodak emotionally touched, as he wanted to have a child with his wife Silvar, so Earth creates a duplicate of Mikko, named Gam (who wears a helmet with antennas).

The Space Giants - Flemish Giant rabbit - Netflix

The Flemish Giant rabbit is a very large breed of domestic rabbit (O. cuniculus domesticus), and is normally considered to be the largest breed of the species. Flemish giants are a utility breed, and are most commonly bred for fur and meat, although the breed is also known for its docile nature and patience in being handled, meaning examples are commonly kept as pets as well.

The Space Giants - History - Netflix

The first standards for the breed were written in 1893. The Flemish Giant is an ancestor of many rabbit breeds all over the world, one of which is the Belgian Hare, imported into England in the mid 19th century. The Flemish Giant was exported from England and Belgium to America in the early 1890s to help improve the size of meat rabbits during the great “rabbit boom”. It received little attention until about 1910 where it started appearing at small livestock shows throughout the country. Today, it is one of the more popular breeds at rabbit shows because of its unusually large size and its varying colors. It is promoted by the National Federation of Flemish Giant Rabbit Breeders, which was formed in 1915. The Flemish Giant has many nicknames, first and foremost the “Gentle Giant” for its uniquely docile personality and also the “universal rabbit” for its varied purposes as pet, show, breeding, meat and fur animal.

The Flemish Giant originated in Flanders. It was bred as early as the 16th century near the city of Ghent, Belgium. It is believed to have descended from a number of meat and fur breeds, possibly including the Steenkonijn (Stone Rabbit—referring to the old Belgian weight size of one stone or about 3.76 kg (8 lb 5 oz)) and the European “Patagonian” breed (now extinct). This “Patagonian” rabbit, a large breed that was once bred in Belgium and France, was not the same as the Patagonian rabbit of Argentina (Sylvilagus brasiliensis), a wild species of a different genus weighing less than two pounds (about 1 kg), nor the Patagonian mara (Dolichotis patagonum), sometimes called the Patagonian hare, a species in the cavy family of rodents that cannot interbreed with rabbits. Thomas Coatoam, in his Origins of the Flemish Giants, tells us, “The earliest authentic record of the Flemish Giant Rabbit occurred about the year 1860.”
