One of the best Japan anime series co-produced with Spain
20 June 2006 | by spikespiegel28See all my reviews

In the ending 80's and starting 90's Spain co-produced Spanish cartoon shows with Japan (Willy Fog, Dogtagnian, The Bremen Musicians...) but it was the time to get it the other way, this time the original cartoon (story and drawing), was made in Japan and we only helped doing little things. However the result was impressive. The second season (Palm Town) was not done with Spanish help so we could never see it. This anime tells the story of a little town called Mapletown (La Aldea del Arce in the Spanish version), were anthropomorphic animals lived. The main character was Patty the little girl rabbit, that with all his friends like Bobby the bear (which was fond of her) and much more live adventures resolving mysteries and playing through the town. The most near thing you will find to this series now would be playing Animal Crossing on the DS or the GameCube and as good games they are, this cartoon was also great. The Spanish version opening song will be one that you will always remember, composed by Emilio Aragon (a very popular TV presenter and humorist here in Spain, that came of a family of very famous TV clowns (real clowns for children I mean)) and sing by Rita Irasema (that also came from that family). The Spanish and Japanese versions of the voices are as cute as the characters are drawn. Just amazingly lovely.
