I recently received a revelation about Anime from my kids. I was telling them about some of the animated shows I used to watch as a kid. When I mentioned seeing "Astro Boy" they were real surprised, and said that was an early Japanese Anime series. I didn't know that! It aired around 1960 to 1962 or thereabouts and came on around 6:00/6:30pm on one of the Washington, DC channels. We lived in Baltimore and only had rabbit ears on top our old TV, so it always came in snowy looking. All I knew about the show was that the animation was a lot different from animation originating in the U.S. Now I know why it looked different! So, I'm naturally curious about the existence of other Anime shows aired over here in past years. What's the oldest Anime you remember seeing? I imagine there weren't a great deal of them in the past.
