Thread: "The Mysterious Cities of Gold" cartoon

  1. #1

    Default "The Mysterious Cities of Gold" cartoon

    Does anyone else remember this cartoon? It was a long serial cartoon that would run for about 6 months on Nickelodeon in the mid to late 80's. About 3 kids who were searching for a lost city of gold set around the time of the conquistidors. I never was quite able to see the entire story. I would always miss about 1/3 of it and ALWAYS would be the same parts that i would miss.

    Mysterious Cities of Gold was finally released last year on DVD with a pretty steep asking price, but here's the info - http://www.amazon.com/Mysterious-Cit...6082608&sr=8-1

    I totally forgot about this show until you posted.

    There's lots of videos on Youtube.

    Default MCoG

    One of the very first Japanese-animated series I ever saw! I blame Nickelodeon for getting me started on the road to becoming the anime fan I am today, and MCoG was part of that. This was probably the best-animated and the most sophisticated in terms of subject matter of all the anime Nickelodeon showed back in the day. Beautiful animation (the show was made in 1982 but looks as good as if not better than stuff from the '90s - and later), great music, and an engrossing story... what more could you ask for from a cartoon? Maybe a better English-language theme song, but what the heck.

    For those who have seen Urusei Yatsura, Yu Yu Hakusho, or Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs, this series was made by the same animation company (Studio Pierrot).

    Hehe, I glad to see i'm not the only one that remembers this cartoon

    i just can't get over that they did release it on DvD. I checked a few years ago (like 5 or more) and there was no plan to release it. I'm happy they changed their minds. I hafta get it now, i want to see the whole story for once.

    oh, and BTW my fav character would hafta be the monkey faced guy (Pedro i think his name was)

    In Quebec, Canada and in France it was known in French as "Les mystÚrieuses citÚs d'or". There a French site at http://www.lescitesdor.com/ who mentions a new series for 2011 but I don't know if an English version will be available
