123 Captain Dog (-- --)

Postby jeffbert » 8 years ago

This seems to be a remake of 032 HOT DOG CORPS, but, these two episodes emphasize different elements of the original story. One might say that this is part two.

Image
My apologies for the poor contrast. :blush: Notice Dr. Fooler has apparently taken the role of Ponkotsu.

It appears that Higeoyaji has just recovered Pero, & that Pero is dreaming about or remembering his experiences in the HOT DOG CORPS.

BTW, I just now realized that I have not yet made a thread for #32 HOT DOG CORPS. :blush: I will make one soon.

Here it becomes confusing, at least to me, as I do not speak Japanese. Fooler is out to reacquire Pero, put his brain in a cyborg, etc., but then where had Pero been when the episode began? It seemed he had just been rescued from the Russians, & was then reunited with his master. Could Pero have been having premonitions as he slept? :hyo:

So, here they are, on their way to the moon (I assume) to grab the jewels.

So, it appears that Pero will not be restored this time. :(

Thank you, Jeffbert for posting this! I agree with you in so much as it appears that "Captain Dog" is a sequel and not a "remake"! And such a touching ending. BTW, did you know that "Pero" is close to the Spanish word for dog? (In Spanish, Perro means Dog. Tezuka sure had a penchant for the obvious, ie. Leo for Lion; Pero for Dog, etc., etc. etc!)

I :heart: :astro: :)

Well confusing, as you said yourself:

Here it becomes confusing, at least to me, as I do not speak Japanese.


But keep in mind that I have not seen the episode (there might be something in the manga about this, but I can't recall it or I have not read it yet). I guess we could say that there are several episodes from the 60s series which are a little... weird, but as I was watching the pictures of Pero and Higeoyaji, with the dog seemingly being "interviewed" (at least to me it looks like that), I really was wondering where it might lead!
