  1. Well, I have never seen the DVD , But I have seen Gigantor and it’s cool because it’s anime japanese animation!!!!! It’s one from the 1960’s and it’s about a little boy detective who gets a robot to help him solve mystreys in Japan and every where and if you here the theme song it tells you!!!

  2. This is a 50’s Japanese cartoon dubbed for American kids…in the 50’s. I have to wonder if the dialogue was this ridiculous in the original Japanese. But then again, you have to release it this way because one of the great parts of the show is it’s nostalgia factor. Granted, I was not alive in the 50’s, but it gives me a TINY insight on what children of the 50’s watched. Now if only they would release Astro Boy. All in all this is a great show, and try to get ahold of the 80’s re-make if you can, because it’s great like this show, but has a bit more of a serious side

  3. I’m very upset, I never received this item and as of today have not heard back from the person who I purchase this item from through your site. It’s been a week since I notify this individual via e-mail regarding this issue.

    I want my money back or my purchase within the next (2) weeks. This is a reasonable time frame to execute this request. Otherwise, I will take this matter to the authorities for resolution.

    Not a happy customer!!!

  5. I cannot believe that my all-time favorite cartoon Gigantor can now be brought online and then sent to me over in australia.Sometime i get home sick even after all these years here and i love things that remind me of home and boy this sure will.Speed Racer 2 box set just arrived today another favorite of mine,and to top that today i find Gigantor’s is also on amazon and ordered it right away.So i guess Speed Racer can help past the time until Gigantor arrives thanks amazon for giving me a big part of my childhood.
