The anime premiered on April 1 at 7:00 a.m. on TV Tokyo's Iniminimanimo programming block. (Iniminimanimo — a reference to the English counting-out rhyme "Eeny, meeny, miny, moe" — has previously aired anime series aimed at children such as Pui Pui Molcar Driving School.)

The anime's cast includes:

  • Jun Fukuyama as Chibi Godzilla
  • Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Chibi Mecha Godzilla
  • Takuya Eguchi as Chibi Ghidorah
  • Rie Takahashi as Chibi Mothra
  • Hiro Shimono as Chibi Radon
  • Fumihiko Tachiki as Chibi Hedorah
  • Miyuki Sawashiro as Chibi Biollante
  • Reina Ueda (older sister) and Akari Kitō (younger sister) as the Kobijin sisters

Taketo Shinkai is directing the anime at Pie in the sky, and Chiharu Sakazaki is designing the characters.

A series of animated shorts titled "Tadaima! Chibi Gojira" (I'm Home! Chibi Godzilla), based on the Chibi Godzilla character, streamed on the Godzilla (Gojira) franchise's YouTube channel in 2020.

Chibi Godzilla debuted in Chiharu Sakazaki's Ganbare Chibi Gojira (Do Your Best, Chibi Godzilla) picture book in October 2018. Sakazaki launched a second picture book Nakayoshi Chibi Gojira (Close Friends, Chibi Godzilla) in May 2019.

The Chibi Godzilla project celebrated the 65th anniversary of the Godzilla franchise. The project launched in July 2018, and it has since appeared on a wrap of the Shinjuku Sumitomo Building, as a kigurumi character at 2018's "Gojira Fes" (Godzilla Fest) event, in animated shorts during theater intermission, and for other projects. Before designing Chibi Godzilla, Sakazaki was known for designing characters such as the Suica commuter card's penguin and Chiba Prefecture's official mascot Chi-ba-kun.
