A hamstrung classic
14 February 2004 | by (Tasmania) – See all my reviews

The original US version of Tezuka's 'Kimba the White Lion' cartoon series from the 1960's, with Billy Lou Watt voicing Kimba, was an absolute classic: it still dwells in the hearts of many middle aged people who remember it.

Unfortunately this 1994 version, due presumably to some copyright issues, was re-dubbed with a new voice cast; the soundtrack and sound effects have been altered, and the 'new' theme song is just absolutely godawful. Unless you just want something to play your kids on a rainy day, avoid it. In fact, avoid it anyway. Why deny your kids the joy of the 'original'?

Fortunately the original series has recently become re-available in all its glory. It really is a one of a kind. usually contains information about where to get the genuine versions. When IMDB lists this re-release as a separate title, I'll review it. Meanwhile, let's just say it rocks.

Oh yes, and The Lion King thing - yes, an amazingly transparent piece of plagiarism by whoever owns Disney this week.
