How well I remember the shows from my childhood, with 'Belle and Sebastian' being one of my favorites.
'Belle and Sebastian' was a very nicely done, very non-violent look at a young boy (Sebastian) searching for the mother (Isobelle) who had left him long ago, and the Pyrenean mountain dog that accompanies him and protects him, and the tiny puppy he himself protects. Unfortunately, it would not fare well in today's world, where it's virtually a requirement that cartoons contain violence, bloodshed, sarcasm, and death. Very few are suitable for a wide audience, and the ones that are suitable are reruns from earlier times.
This was one of the best series of the early eighties (I also have some very fond memories of Osamu Tezuka's 'Astroboy'), and one of the very fond memories I will always carry with me of my childhood.
