I think I saw more episodes of Kimba, The White Lion growing up than any other Japanese cartoon that made it over here. it was ALWAYS on Channel 20, WDCA back in the day. I think someone must have been a fan.
I'm surprised I haven't written about Kimba more, but then there's loads of info already out there about it on the net.
it really is a great series and I am quite happy to own the the Ultra Set from a few years ago.
