Production Company: Mushi Productions
Creator(s): Osamu Tezuka
Classification -
Synopsis Stand- alone episodes with Kimba as cub.
Review An Americanised version of Tezuka's Jungle Taetei. The Yanks credit themselves in great detail but don't get around to mentioning who did the animation! It looks very American too. It has aged rather badly and will be mainly of interest to completists and anime journalists. Shown on Polsat with Polish overdub.
Note that the credits below are correct, but I'm not 100% sure about the image. In addition to the 3 series below there seems to be at least one non-Japanese look-alike series.
Credits Series Director: Eichi Yamamoto
