An early concept of Mogera was of a four-footed mecha, more along the lines of a mole. The name Mogera was based on the Japanese word for mole ("mogura"), which was not in the original script, but was added at the insistence of producer Tomoyuki Tanaka, who felt the movie needed a giant monster.
U.S. press material issued at the time of the film's original release incorrectly listed Masaru Sat˘ (another highly regarded Japanese film composer), rather than Akira Ifukube, as the creator of the score.
This was one of the last films to be distributed by RKO in the United States. When RKO ceased operations, most of the first run was handled by MGM.
This was one of the first Japanese productions to be shot in anamorphic widescreen. T˘h˘ Kabushiki Kaisha, which called its anamorphic process T˘h˘Scope, specifically made this film to show off the new process. Part of Akira Ifukube's battle score was used on the T˘h˘Scope logo, which appeared at the beginning of the Japanese-language prints.
