Eagle Sam (イーグルサム) is an anime based on Sam, the Los Angeles 1984 Summer Olympics mascot that ran exclusively in Japan for 51 episodes between April 7th, 1983 to March 29th, 1984 on TBS (Tokyo Broadcasting System).[1]

Plot

The show centers around Private Investigator Sam of Los Angeles who is mysteriously transformed into an anthropomorphic eagle resembling the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Mascot. With the help of his comically busty assistant, Canary Carina, Sam has to fight the bad guys and chase down his nemesis, a cockroach riding a skateboard. Sam's hat contains almost everything he needs, and when the going gets tough, he takes out magical Olympic rings to help save the day.[2]

Availability

At the time of the anime's production, Sam was huge in Japan long before the games began. The opening and ending credits were performed by Eagles. Despite this, Eagle Sam fell into obscurity, and only one episode of the show has surfaced online, with no official releases.

Looks a lot like him, but the idea of a bald eagle dressed like Uncle Sam is obvious to any character designer.

to @RetroGameFan9000, I don't trust those kind of Torrent sites :P and I don't know if they even work or not, or are seeding?

Why am I amazed that a Japanese anime was produced for an American mascot? I mean, I have nothing against it, it's just kind of mindblowing.

Don't tell me he's an American stereotype. Is this like Yo-kai Watch 3: Sushi and Tempura with all the "merican" characters?

Sam is so ridiculously cute, even as a mascot for the 1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympic Games.

Why don't you ask Tokyo Broadcasting System to see if they have some episodes for you to upload?
