WONDER THREE pilot

Here are the sample critters that the W3 will use as models; note that the bunny is different from the one used in the actual series.

W3 in their natural forms, from left to right: Nokko, Pukko, & Bokko, the commander.

I have sufficient frames for a cute GIF of Bokko wiggling her tail, just ask.

Image
In the manga, I believe it was stated that the aliens actually merged with the animals, but here, the models are unchanged.

Koichi, the James Bond-type, is here drawn a bit rougher than in the series.

Enter Shinichi:

Here, he appears between 2 to 4 years younger that he does in the series.

Koichi, having eluded the villains, goes home to visit his family; they believe he is a manga artist, who works in the city.

:p

But the mob has finally caught up to Koichi!

The stem on Koichi's watch seems very small at 1st glance, but--

I think this is the ANTIPROTON bomb, but cannot recall if I ever knew for certain. Anyway, the bomb has a very different appearance in both the manga & series, being a large sphere with two horns on top. In a plot perhaps influenced by THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, W3 have come to ensure that earth's violence does not spread. If the team finds that Earth is not as violent as the GALACTIC LEAGUE had supposed, fine; if not, they are to destroy earth.

I had never heard of this before! Thanks.

My gif software still works, and I should have time in the next few days. :)

Thank you again, Jeffbert, for your amazing posts of old Tezuka anime.
I remember seeing the series back in the sixties; especially I remember the theme song.
Of course, I remember the names of the characters as: Bonnie, Ronny and Zero, the English names, but it is interesting to know the original Japanese names. Thank you again.

I :heart: :astro: :)

I take it " Bonnie, Ronny and Zero" are Bokko, Pukko, & Nokko, respectively.

BTW, thanks for the comments, both of you!
