Classic animated wonder from Toei remains true.
25 December 1998 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Never in thirty years has it retained the sheer brilliance of animation and crisp wonderful colors! This is a "must get" and "must see" for hardcore collectors of Japanimation cinema, but it's just too hard to find these days as one may not discover its secret history. The experience is best compared to those imported afternoon cartoon shows of the 80s. While it tells the real PUSS 'N BOOTS story, the magic is in the style of humorous expressions and nicely written songs. This may not appeal to every boy or girl due to its Japanese flair, but it does entertain solid. Rarity is what makes this special. Released by Media under the generic PUSS 'N BOOTS title, and hidden somewhere in your favorite video store.
