Kimba The White Lion Is The One!

I don't believe it! My all time favourite cartoon as a kid, is out on DVD. I used to sing the theme song at the top of my lungs. That, and the song from "Here Come The Brides" :)

Ah, yes... I remember Kimba. At least, I remember that it exists - I don't remember anything about it, really.

I've been DVRing "Gigantor" lately, myself.

I loved that show. The Lion King was such a rip off of this TV show. Kimba, Speed Racer and Hanna Babera were the orignal must see TV.

You liked Kimba? I guess it was a precursor of Japanese anime, but in any case it was irritatingly pacifistic. I liked Tobor, the 8 Man.

"When you get in trouble and you're in a fight
(in a fight)
Who's the one who just will turn and run?
(oooh-ooh)
Who's the bravest animal in Africa?
Kimba the White Lion is the one."

I could never understand what's so brave about turning and running. But Michael Jackson musta gotten it, viz.,

"Beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or who's right."
