Synopsis
It’s Marine Boy! The original “American anime” classic is here, at last! Produced in Japan but intended for first run in the US, Marine Boy was one of the first color cartoons to come from Japan, soon to be sharing syndicated screen space with the likes of Kimba the White Lion and Speed Racer (with whom it shares a number of voice actors). Teenage Marine Boy battles evil on and under the seas on behalf of the Ocean Patrol, aided by the amazing inventions of his father, Dr. Mariner and the brilliant Professor Fumble. Joining Marine Boy in his mission are his white dolphin, Splasher, young mermaid Neptina, and fellow Ocean Patrol agents Bullton and Piper. Adding complication to the mission are the effort of to CliCli prove himself a miniature Marine Boy. So break out your Oxy-Gum and get ready to dive into the amazing aquatic animated adventures found on this 3-Disc, 26-Episode Collection.

      Comments about Marine Boy: The Complete First Season:

      Before I received this dvd set I watched all of the SPEED RACER dvd sets I bought years ago and I had a lot of fun revisiting SPEED RACER and his friends and parents who are voiced by the same people that voiced MARINE BOY! Peter Fernandez voiced SPEED and he voiced DR. Mariner, Marine Boy's father, and he sounds like Racer X, SPEED'S long lost brother and a masked racer! Connie Orr voiced Neptina the mermaid who sounds like a younger Trixie, SPEED's girlfriend! I would have to say that SPEED RACER is a more dynamic and polished show in spite of the low budget animation then MARINE BOY. That show's creaters made the characters more expreesive on a low budget! But Marine boy is fun because it's appealing to see a super boy beat the adult villains underwater and it seems like he has the same martial arts fighting skills that Speed has! Before I could watch this trip back to fantasy childhood I had to call Warner Archive to get my MARINE BOY DVD set because the set I ordered did not arrive, but instead I got in the mail an audio CD set that was supposed to go to Sharrell Tracy who lives in Oregon when it was placed in the cardboard envelope addressed to me who lives in Uniondale N.Y.!! So I mailed the CD set to her and Warner sent me MARINE BOY at last! And something just like this problem just happened again with Amazon.com!! But getting back to MARINE BOY, the print colour quality of the remastered film print is very good and vibrant colour for the underwater scenes! And I forgot MARINE BOY HAS A THEME SONG!! SPEED RACER has more cool suspense with it's 2 parter cliffhangers but it's fun to hear the same voice cast voicing these undersea characters that include Splasher that will remind one of FLIPPER! Rememember his theme song!? So when do the next seasons come out Warner Archive!!?

          Just awesome! I grew up watching Speedracer re-runs on Cartoon Network and eventually became an anime fan thanks to that channel. I've heard of "classic" anime shows like Marine Boy so I was 100% intersted when I saw this released. That said it lived up to my hopes and was sooooooooo great, great all-ages fun for everyone. Can't wait for the rest of the series to be released!

              Glad this is finally available! Picture and sound quality is second to none! Much, much better than the bootleg videos I've had to contend myself with. Hopefully the rest of the series will be released soon.

                  Comments about Marine Boy: The Complete First Season:

                  Back in the day, when this aired on WNEW-TV, Channel 5, it was strongly promoted, and for a good reason. Marine Boy's underwater adventures, foiling villains, and keeping the ocean safe are what made the show perfect. All the supporting characters were memorable, too: Bulton, Piper, Dr. Mariner, Professor Fumble, the Commander, little Cli Cli, and last but not least, Neptina and Splasher. Every afternoon, just before 2 o'clock, I'd shout, "Marine Boy!" at the top of my voice. That's just how great it was, and still is.

                    Fans of this classic series have reason to rejoice, as this set could not possibly look better. It appears to have been made from the remasters done for the Australian market some years back and the colors and sound have never been better. Three discs of sheer fun that will leave fans begging for more, with two more three-disc sets to come. (That is if I've correctly reckoned the number of remaining episodes.) It may look rather primitive by today's standards but believe me when I tell you it held my generation mesmerized, and will likely do the same for your own little ones (I recommend it for kids roughly age 3 through 8 for starters.) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

                      I was enjoying this just as much as I did back in the early 60's now watching it with my grandson and watching him reminds me of well me as a kid watching this!
