the one time I didn't expect anything from kaiketsu zorori to show up here! I always said this show is up 4kids' alley if they had picked it up.

Still kinda funny this show never got brought over anyway. The fandom though kinda disgusts me a bit with their drawings however!

I don't think I've seen this show before. But the design and the animation charmed the heck outta me. I'd love to see the whole show if it's like this.

Oh I think it is, it's been fansubbed at least. I think Sunrise was a co-producer of this. I said it was a pretty interesting kids show, and think 4Kids should've picked up something like this instead of going after stuff the fans know wouldn't fly here anyway. Oh well, it's all in the past now.

There's actually several animated Zorori stuff out there, such as a movie from 1993 that was done by TMS (using different character designs) and two TV series in the mid 2000's that have a total of 149 episodes produced. It pretty much got picked up by the familiar French/Italian/Latin American markets by now, and passed us by. Another movie made by the same 2000 staff was pared with a Keroro Gunso (Sgt. Frog) movie I think.

Okay, now I've got to track this show down. You've sold me.

It figures that it got syndicated everywhere else but here.

It's probably one of the few "funny animal" type approaches in anime I could tolerate.
