Introduced Japanese anime to young French TV viewers in the late 1970s. The success was so phenomenal that it became a matter of concern for parents unsettled by the certain amount of violence displayed in the show. Later on however, the success was confirmed by several other imported series of the same type. See more »
This bland robot show (which aired as 'Goldorak' as I remember it) lacked the amorality, female nudity and blood splattering violence of 'Albator, le corsair de l'espace'(another children's cartoon on French tv in Canada at the time) -- thus it was less interesting to young boys in my grade.
Interestingly, the Quebec courts passed a law in 1999 forbidding parents from naming their child 'Goldorak.' I'm not making this up.
