Was dubbed to Arabic by (the Lebanese TV company) in Lebanon in the early 80's under the name (Moghamart al Fadaa) and gained a huge popularity among the children, teenager and adults as being one of the first Anime series to be completely dubbed to Arabic. See more »
Cult series across France, Belgium, Italy, Quebec, as well as some part of the Arabic world, like Tunisia. The show was a huge hit for children growing in the late 70s or early 80s. Adults may find it somewhat repetitive, unless they have an interest for anime and mangas. It has been designed with a target audience of 5 and 6 y.o. boys in mind.
Crappy English tranlastions can account for part of its lack of success in the English-speak world. One UK translation is supposed to be correct, more respectful of the original.
A web search should reveal more than a few fan sites. The series ran on French tv (FR2, FR3 and TVA) from 1978 to 1989.
A lot more imaginative than what most shows offer today--although its not a family show, just a children show. ;-)))
