Most of us have had the misfortune to have the missionaries from the Mormon church turn up on our doorstep. Selling their particular brand of pseudo-Christian cultism. Figures of ridicule wherever they go, see in this banned animation how truly fruit-loop, racist and dangerous they really are. Apparently this animation was made by an ex-Mormon, for the 1982 documentary exposing the truth behind the church, called The God Makers.
Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos was an animated television series that was first aired in 1986 as a five episode (30 minute each) one season, mini-series. It was created by and starred Chuck Norris as himself, and produced by Ruby-Spears Productions. (They of Fangface and Rubik The Amazing Cube.)
Along with the Japanese animations Astro-Boy and Gigantor, Speed Racer was one of the earliest examples of anime to find success outside of Japan. The animation for Speed Racer utilized a lot of stock repeat footage, as many animations of the era did, but stood out in its stylistic dynamic design. Using a framing and style directly lifted from the manga series, the animation gave viewers the feeling of speed through fast pans, off-centre angles, and extreme close-ups. All edited at frenetic break-neck speed.
Oddly, Mr. Chan had 10 children, and was supposed to be widowed. Although no wife or mother was ever mentioned, or any other relatives. The voices of the children were redubbed after production, as it was thought that their original "thick" Chinese accents were too strong for young children to understand. The original cast had been mostly ethnically Chinese and Japanese, the new cast were mostly white American, and featured an early voice role for the young Jodie Foster.
