Excellent Classic Cartoon
28 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Without a doubt this has to be one of the best "Classic" cartoons I have ever seen. I first watched it on VHS as a kid and had long forgot about it, then one night I fell asleep with the TV on and woke up to the GIGANTOR theme song. I said to myself I must be dreaming, there is no way that this is back on TV, well sure as sh** it was, so I stayed awake to watch. The next day I went online and purchased the 2 DVD boxed sets that I saw on Bestbuy's website. Man it made me feel like a little kid again it was AWESOME!! I can definitely say that waiting to see all these great episodes will be well worth the money I spent on them. Gigantor rates right up there with other classic favorites of mine such as ThunderCats, Transformers, GI Joe, Fraggle Rock, HE-Man, and many more. If you have never seen GIGANTOR before I would say first off you are missing out big time, secondly you must a least buy or watch one episode. Only downside is that it is Black and White, However depending on how "old" you are you'll be able to appreciate it's modernness for its time.
