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 »
Grendizer appeared for the first time in Arab World at the 80's as a complete two-season Arabic dubbed show. It gained a huge popularity among the Arab children in the 80s, especially because dubbed cartoons are very rare at that time. Grendizer popularity in Arab World even very much exceeded Mazinger's; especially in Saudi Arabia where Mazinger has never been shown on TV.
The show is still being aired occasionally on both Space Toon and ART Teens (free-to-air Arabic satellite channels) which can be received in Middle East, parts of Africa, Europe, and Asia on the Egyptian TV satellite (Nile Sat). Also VHS tapes for the complete show (19 tapes)are being sold in Saudi Arabia.
Grendizer fans can obtain more information about the show on this website (http://www.grendizer.net).
