I also enjoyed watching this as a child
19 April 2006 | by aplus-techSee all my reviews

I used to watch Starzinger (known as "El Galáctico" in Spanish) as a child in my native Dominican Republic. Yes, it was dubbed in Spanish. I still remember the opening and ending songs. The Spanish names of the three cyborgs that accompanied Princess Aurora in her quest to restore the energy to save the galaxy were: Galactico (Cogo), Glotin (Porcus) and Giorgio (Jorgos). My favorite character was Galactico (Cogos).

I looked forward to watching each weekly episode but unfortunately I never got to see all 64 of them. Does anybody know where I could purchase a DVD set with all the episodes either in Spanish or English?

Princes Aurora and the boys encountered all sorts of terrible things in their travel to restore energy to the galaxy. In the process, even the Princess herself had to fight.

This story is actually a remake of an old Chinese folk tale, translated into English as "MONKEY." MONKEY was also adapted to the small screen. I got to see it in English and Spanish.
