Coocky El-Ajeeb !
13 November 2009 | by elshikh4See all my reviews

This is one of my favorites. While my childhood our national TV blessed us with so many classics. And when it comes to the Japanese school of animation, then all of its work are classics. Majingâ Zetto (1972) "known by the name of Mazenger in the Arabic version". Takarajima (1978) or Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. Hello! Sandy Bell (1981). Meitantei Holmes (1984) or the comic Sherlock Holmes. Cubitus (1989). They are all unforgettable shows. Shin Tetsuwan Atom (1980), or Coocky El-Ajeeb for me, is no exception. I was waiting, so craving, to watch every episode. And really it didn't disappoint me at all. Not even once. The character was 100% human while being robot. I think the real secret of him is being that all-time-child-superman which's an original idea indeed. The direction was very interesting. There were many artistic touches (After 20 years I still recall some moving endings). The drawings were perfect with yummy colors and attractive personality. The imagination was thrilling and droll. Let alone some messages this show managed to deliver with the fun as well. And I'll never forget the character of the younger brother who says only (rabble.. rabble)! This is a review and maybe a tribute to some of my childhood's best memories. A wonder boy, a wonder series as well.
