Does anybody remember this anime show from the 60's?

I Do.

It was part of what inspired me to become an animator. Eventually I got to work in japan for an Animation company(Phoenix Entertainment) among others(freelance)for two and a half years. Even had Hayao Miyazaki interview me,It scared the bejesus out of me,I almost lost my breakfast,I think he might have been nervous because of the translating, luckily my friend Hiroko Takemoto's neighbor was a professional interperter and she came along. I wasn't suppose to to actually see him, just one of the producers from studio Jibuli,but boy did he chain smoke.

The best time of my life! And guess what happens when I come home back to NYC? One of my alleged friends says straight to my face "Don't think that by going to japan that you are gonna get a better position here." What a Jerk!

Several months later I find myself fired from a job,black listed,and unemployed for almost 2 and a half years now. Thanks America!

So Anyway from "Feeling on Top of the World" to "Hey brother can you spare a dime for a cup of coffee" in a few shorts months.

Now I'm looking for work but its so hard it doesn't matter where it is, but i'd like to get away from the horrible freaks from NYC. I tell you living in Japan was a dream,everyone was nice and helped you,in fact they would go way out of their way to help you! God I miss it so!

Anyone have the address for a Japanese Mail Order bride? wink

PS Sorry NGF I went from Marine Boy to my self loathing pathetic selfabsorbed problems.

Yours

I saw it when I was still living in Ukraine. I was about 10 years old and it was the American version (I think) as it was in English language although the volume was very low, with Russian voice actors dubbing over the dialogue.

I thought it was wonderful and wish someone would release a soundtrack CD for it. That won't happen, I'm sure...whatever happened to the GIGANTOR soundtrack?

Ah well, maybe it will come out on DVD?

with love as always,

Bet going to Japan and meeting Hiyao Miyazaki
was a dream come true for you. For me, the best animation has come out of Japan. Keep the faith.
According to one site, the show was distributed in the U.S. by Seven Arts, which was later bought out by Warner Brothers. They still have their original masters. With all the anime being released onto DVD, I wish they would put this show out.

Today, June 18th, the Warner Archive Collection has released Marine Boy - The Complete 1st Season on DVD as a manufacture on demand (MOD) title. The 3-disc set is priced at $29.95 SRP, and U.S. residents can order the title from the WBshop using the button link below. Global fans shouldn't fear, however, since the title will soon be available through Amazon's CreateSpace MOD program as well.

Wow! Never thought I would see the day! Thanks for the info. smile MB was remastered and shown in Australia a few years ago. I wonder what masters they are using for this release?

WB has changed it's page description from "Not remastered, used best possible source", to "This film is remastered". I contacted customer service before they changed the description, and I was told the "source" had not been disclosed.

Marine Boy Vol. 02 officially announced. Pleasantly surprised by this. I figured this title wouldn't generate enough sales for Warner to merit a second edition.

Yes he had jet boots. Flippers would also (magically) deploy if he wanted to swim with his feet. His other famous gadgets were an electronic boomerang, oxygum so he can breath underwater, and a Dick Tracy style wrist communicator.

Vague vague memories of Junior school playtime eating Bazooka Joe and pretending it was Oxy-gum.

The theme I have always remembered.

Aye, that theme.
I haven't seen the show since I was a wee boy, but the minute I read the thread title, the theme popped into my head like I'd been playing it every day for the last 40 years!
I guess we were all meant to meet up here from an early age smile

Classic song. You know interesting enough there are two versions of the main theme. At around the 54 second mark you hear some strange "gurgling" sounds. I've heard another version without that strange "I'm drowning" sound effect.
