distant memory of childhood favourite
16 April 1999 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Marine Boy, the TV series, was the first Manga to be shown on British television. Although it has to my knowledge never been repeated, unlike almost every other children's TV program from the sixties and seventies, its memory lives on. Marine Boy's ability to breathe underwater and swim like a fish were conferred on him by what seemed to be magic chewing gum. These abilities led to numerous aquiline adventures for Marine Boy and his friend "splasher" the dolphin. More than this it's hard to recall, except that at the time it offered a distinct and welcome alternative to Bugs Bunny, Hector's House and Bill and Ben.
