A timeless classic which started the golden age of magical girl genre
1 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Simply a classic. Shows after shows present the timeless human story punctuated by comic relief with the cats. No special effect, no complicated plot, just simple stories with simple lessons.

This was an enormous success in Japan, which explains why 2 more TV series came in the 80's and the 90's and also 2 movies made in the 70's.

The success of this TV series validated the magical girl genre - a girl possessed a magical object which she used to solve everyday's problems. Later successful animation series such as Hana no Ko Lunlun built on this theme.
