With the Roseanne reboot currently airing on ABC, there's one character conspicuously missing from the line-up. Twitter user @eldiablito_72 couldn't help but point out the glaring mistake on Twitter:
The character in question is, of course, Rodan, the Japanese daikaiju monster who starred in the 1956 movie Rodan and later went head to head with Godzilla in that monster's franchise. Clearly, if you're going to reboot Roseanne, chronicling the day-to-day lives of a well-intentioned, working-class family, you HAVE to include him!
Other Roseanne fans on Twitter couldn't agree more!
Kaiju monsters helped shape many childhoods in beautiful ways.
Thats incredible. Is it on after reruns of My Mothra the Car?— chauncey telese (@bigchaunc64) March 22, 2018
I loved that show as a kid. It shaped my adolescence almost as much as the book "Are you there Godzilla, it's me Margaret".— This or That | The Would You Rather Comedy Podcast (@tortpodcast) March 22, 2018
Haha! My fave was Tales of Fourth Grade Kaiju!— Mark of the Covenant (@eldiablito_72) March 22, 2018
Just imagine how great Rodan would be in the Roseanne universe!
Gotta love the episodes in which Mothra comes bounding into the house like Steve Urkel— Chris Davis (@Slackerchan) March 22, 2018
Twitter quickly came around to the idea.
Though, to be fair, some other users were more skeptical.
Most, however, were already picturing their perfect Roseanne/Rodan world!
I can hear the blues guitar lick with Rodan laughing over it now— Elliot Jay O'Neill (@elliotjayoneill) March 23, 2018
After thinking about the perfect new cast-member for a while, some people noticed Roseanne might need Roseanne too.
My god in heaven. It took a good 30 seconds before I noticed that.— Jamison Turnbull (@cadarado425) March 22, 2018
Well, there's nothing to be done about it now. Roseanne airs on ABC, Tuesdays at 8pm, with no sign of Rodan, Godzilla, Mothra, or any other notable Kaiju. Despite this, it's still pretty good. Tune in and feel free to imagine how Rodan would react in any given situation.
