141 Locomotive March

Postby jeffbert » 8 years ago

Image
Here is another one about choo-choos. :p

Image

1st, Atom gives a brief history of locomotives:
Image

Image
Recall that Jetter Mars' 1st episode followed this example.

Image
Here is March, a train with a robot engineer.

Image
All the kiddies love him/them.

Image

Image
But this guy, dislikes the whole idea (of robot engineers?).

Image
His boy has issues with papa's dislike.

Image
But, papa reassures him.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
I remember going on vacation with parents, & being bored from the long car trip, we would try to entice the truckers to blow their air horns. :p

Image

Image
:heart:

Image

Image
"My choo-choo is so much better than March."

Image
"I challenge you to a race; the losing train is to be destroyed!"

Image

Image
I guess this is where they proposed rules & such.

Image

Image
Note the Popeye features on this guy chin & nose.

Image
The 'T' seems a bit weird; The BK had one on his shield.

Image

Image
Does this little boy seem familiar? Some might remember his appearance in 114, METRO MONSTER, another train adventure.

Image

Image

Image
Periscopes in locomotives?!

"Interfere with our cheating, will you?" :lol:

Image

Image

Image
Finally, the boy has had enough of his papa's cheating.

Image

Image

Image

Image
Apparently, Ochanomizu finds something in the rules a bit unreasonable.

So, once again, the day is saved, thanks to the PPG-- oops, thanks to :astro: !

:lol: I love the image of Astro all stretched out - he DOES look more like Cobalt!

Here is another episode that appears to be jam-packed with a lot of humor (what happened to Elefun's nose?). I just get the feeling that they were having a great time making these shows and felt that the wittiness was as important as the moral message. It seems a lot of humor got dropped as the original manga and anime went into subsequent interpretations.

:lol: I like Uran on Dr. E's arm. She's such a diva!! :whistling:

Thanks so much Jeffbert.

COME ON VIKI - WHY CAN'T YOU SHOW THESE EPISODES!!!??

Again thank you Jeffbert for posting another of "the 89". Some of it looks familiar. Is it possible that this episode was some how reworked as "Speeding through the Storm" for the 1980s series?

I :heart: :astro: :)

AprilSeven: yes, I agree that the humor was much more ingrained in this series than in the 1980s or 2003.

ASTROBUDDY: I wish I knew, but can only speculate based on similarities, :p though that is what I do anyway. I have a fairly hefty chapter that does just that with more than a few stories.
