English Pen Pal

July 6, 2010

This arrived from a friend who discovered me on Good Mail Day blog. I enjoyed her card, with the many images of England. I sent her back a little note in an Astro Boy fold-up that I purchased at Powells’s Books in Portland, Oregon. I just love Astro Boy, don’t you?

 

I THINK Astro Boy was on TV when I was a child… Memory sometimes fails me, or provide absolutely clear, and completely inaccurate, recollection.

Wikipedia, are you there? Can you help me out? Of course!

Astro Boy was first published in 1952, in Japan. The television series, in the 60’s (my childhood), was the first TV series that “embodied the aesthetic that later became known as anime”.

Well, Astro Boy, was it my friendship with you in my childhood that makes me fall in love with Ponyo today?
