|03:09 am - The Littl` Bits|
Today, in a fit of nostalgia I went to googled up some of the older TV shows I use to watch when I was a kid. Apparently, one of my favourite childhood shows (and one I still adore today) was actually a Japanese cartoon...and here I thought my first contact with Japanese animation was Sailor Moon.
The Littl' Bits (official site), according to Wikipedia was "... a Japanese anime television series with 26 episodes, produced in 1980 by Tatsunoko Productions in Japan. First shown on TV Tokyo, its Saban-produced English translation was featured on the children's television station Nick Jr. from 1991 to 1995...".
I absolutely adored this show, so much so that my mom video taped it for me (the VHS of which I still have and watch sometimes when I'm at home). It was well drawn, the stories were wonderful, the characters were interesting, alongside Lamb Chop I think these two ranked as my most favourite childhood shows. Also, for one Halloween me and a neighbour/classmate dressed up as the two main characters of the show. Our mothers handmade our costumes because we so wanted to dress up as them XDD My first cosplay inspired by my first Japanese animation...without me even knowing it (and lookit where I am now XDD. Maybe it's destiny~)
