One of the best US/Japan cartoon hybrids, a product of the genre- splicing mentality of the mid-60s which produced such oddities as SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS, LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD AND THE MONSTERS and PINOCCHIO IN OUTER SPACE, this Toei feature from Japan got unusually good treatment in the US from the Walter Reade Organization. It opened in a large number of theatres, and had a nice new score written by Milton and Anne Delugg, even a great soundtrack album on Mainstream Records. The story is familiar: our small hero gets shot into space to battle monsters and super-robots other cool stuff. The cross between fable and (then) hi-tech imaginative imagery works well here, and has a lot in common with another US/Japan Sci-Fi Toon, RAINBOW BRITE AND THE STAR STEALERS. A great toon.
