    Dr. Reid fails to mention another very significant fact about ALAKAZAM THE GREAT, namely that it was also the first Anime film to be released in the West, thereby launching an avalanche of subsequent anime productions as well as the career of Osamu Tezuka as an animator.

    Dennis, you must have skimmed past this sentence:

    “It was the third Japanese cartoon ever made in color and the first anime film to come to America.”
