Best SI-FI cartoon ever?
9 November 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

The Cartoon Captain Future was (at least) 20 years ahead of its time when it was first aired in the late 70 early 80. I watched the show on German TV around 1982-84. The action packed story along with a super OST made it my favorite cartoon making todays "fastfood-anime" look pretty poor.

I managed to find the show on 2 DVD collections on the Internet last year and I had a lot of fun watching Captain Future and his crew in action again after 20 years. And to my surprise it had not lost its "magic" like so many other things from the past...

I wonder why it has never been shown on Danish TV?
