Gan to Gon (ガンとゴン Gan & Gon) is a Japanese children's comedy anime series produced by Jiho Eigasha (who produced the notoriously difficult-to-find anime series, Hoshi no Ko Poron) and animated by Nihon Douga. It aired from December 1, 1971 to December 9, 1971 on Akita TV, for total of 260 episodes, each around five minutes long.

Plot

Gan and Gon are a pair of oddballs on a worldwide search for treasure. Gan is an unsightly kind-hearted man of justice who loved adventure but was a bit scatterbrained. Gon only thinks about sleep but, when it comes down to it, he would come up with some really crazy ideas.

Status

While some episodes of Hoshi no Ko Poron have been found and uploaded online, no full copies of Gan to Gon episodes were known to exist. However, a copy of a episode of Himitsu Sentai Gorenger was found in the possession of a user named morikawa confirming that at least one episode still exists.

In June 2014, a 16mm master copy had been bought on Yahoo! Auctions Japan. During a Niconico stream on December 24, 2016 called "Hoshi no Ko Poron livestream", an episode titled "Protect the Oasis" was revealed.[1][2][3]

After that, 7 more episodes were found by an another user and it was being uploading every other Saturday until April 8, 2017.[4]

I'm host of "Hoshi no Ko Poron livestream". At first, I can't use English very well, sorry!!

I feel pleasure that a page of "Gan to Gon" was made. However I confirmed there are some mistakes. Please fix these problems, thank you!


・"Gan to Gon" aired from December 1st, 1971 to December 9th, 1971 at first. http://hoshi...%B4%E3%83%B3

・The master copy bought on Yahoo! Auctions Japan was confirmed before December 24, 2016. http://ch.ni...aga/ar963309

・The new discovered episodes will be uploaded every other Saturday, not every Saturday!
