120 TIME HUNTER

Postby jeffbert » 7 years ago

Image
The synopsis from the Tezuka webpage says this is a remake of #11 [(18)], Time Machine, but in my opinion, it is more of an act of desperation. I think they were shorthanded of animators that week of May 22, 1965, when this was broadcast, & they cobbled together a story using not just cels from earlier episodes, but entire clips from them.

FROM MY NOTES:
Shares scenes with #11 (18), Time Machine & #69, Rebellion of the Dinosaur People (59, Dinosaur Dilemma)
Wrecks Higeoyaji’s house
Uses frames from #29, Memorable Day (Memory Day)

Not merely influenced by Welles' Time Machine, but using imagery straight out of it, as in these next two frames:

Back to #68. For those who know little of the B&W series, but are familiar with the 2003 series, the following part was used as the basis for the Franken episode:
Image

Image
Compare “Kazuske-kun” or, perhaps “Karusuke-kun” (“Disko Teck” :lol :) to Fujimoto Taku (Jack Fuller) on the 2003 Franken episode. Both were separated from the group & captured by the marauders.

Image
:tezuka: appears in a frame from this clip of the crowd fleeing, but I do not have it in the frames from this episode. :cry:

Image
Compare Hanako-Sensei (“Miss Ann Thrope” :p ) with Midori-Sensei (sorry, I have no data on her dubbed name). Hanako-Sensei seems shaped more like a mother, while Midori is more like a big sister.

BTW, unlike more than a few, perhaps most characters given pun names by Ladd & co., Miss Ann Thrope does not live up to her name. :astro:

BTW, :tezuka: does appear as both a boy & a man in #69. :p

:lol: :p

I think this was one of only a few clips actually originating in this episode. :hyo:

Returning from the trip to the past, we find Higeoyaji's home is still a shambles (as was Uran's flower bed in the 1980s time travel episode).

And, another idea that was reused in the 2003! :p

:D

This is because it is essentially the same story, but with certain details changed, racoonangel.

I can't help but face-palm at the image of the dinosaur with breasts, even if they're implied.

:lol: I vaguely remember that series, Tetsuwan Penguin.

:mad: I thought I had a translation of the marquee, but -- hmm, I think it was among the deleted scenes on the TRSI boxed set extras.
