Cyborg Kuro-chan was an anime series, lasting from October 2nd, 1999, to January 6th, 2001, on TV Tokyo in Japan. It was about a housecat named Kuro, who was kidnapped and turned into a cyborg by an evil scientist, named Dr. Go, for his plans of world domination.
An English dub of the series was made, presumably in Malaysia, but only episodes 3-12 are currently available to watch online. The dub originally aired on Animax Asia in 2004, all 65 episodes were dubbed. The dub itself is highly rare, and the credits sequence is still in its unaltered, all Japanese language form, with no sign of the dub's voice actors, or the dubbing company itself. The first 14 episodes were released as VCDs by "Speedy Video Malaysia" which were sold on various websites in the early to late 2000s.While episodes 3-12 are the only full episodes available online, there does exist a clip of of the series' 2nd episode, which can be seen in the video below. The 1st and 2nd episodes do exist, but only on the mentioned VCDs, and not online. Any at all beyond episode 14 are still a mystery.
