An unforgettable animated soap opera
7 May 2002 | by ((Spain)) – See all my reviews

This classic was released in 1976 in Spain after the great success of "Heidi" and was a great social phenomenon.My mother and all my family cried with the life of this italian child that searched his mother in Argentina.Based on a popular novel,"Marco"has been re-released several times in Spain with a great success.The animation is good and the characters (like the monkey of the child or the italian people)are well described.Is a good example of good japan anime.
