Gigantor in the UK
20 November 2010 | by ady123See all my reviews

I saw this about twice in the UK back in the 1960s, but it disappeared from our telly schedules for some reason, they must have been pilots which were dropped.

I enjoyed it so much I never forgot about it, wondering for years what happened to "gigantor" So we in the UK never got to enjoy the series, and I searched for it, even asking my parents about it.

My 10/10 is a five year olds vote.

It looks awful to an adult, but was top stuff for a youngster, and here I am decades later wondering if I imagined it because no-one else I know who lives over here can remember it.
