Fantasy Novel

Notes English name: Little Prince Cedie or Little Lord Fauntleroy
From a novel by: Frances Hodgson Burnett
A title in Fuji TV & Nippon Animation's World Masterpiece Theater (meisaku)TV anime series of adaptations of classic children's books.
From the book Little Lord Fauntleroy" by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
Classification WMT
Synopsis American boy finds he is heir to lordly English estate, and is taken to England to live with his crusty and much-disliked grandfather. Cedie soon wins over the locals with his innocent enthusiasm.
Review I've only seen two or three episodes of this, in monochrome, (problems with playing SECAM!) but can report that it seems worth a look. Young Cedric has a rather shoujo pretty-boy appeal and the story, which reveals tensions between the adults as well as Cedric's good nature (he seems to be having a rather Pollyanna-ish effect on his gruff Grandfather), looks promising. There is a fair amount of humour derived from childish high jinks and the behaviour of at least one comic villain.
The on-screen logo indicates that somebody recorded this from French satellite TV.
