Calimero and Priscilla as they appear in the 1974 series.

Status: Partially Found

Calimero (カリメロ Karimero?) a cartoon about a little black chicken with a half-eggshell hat. Originally created in 1963 as a character for advertising soap,[1] he became widely popular in his home country of Italy. K&S, a Japanese company, caught wind of Calimero's fame, and in the early 70s, bought the rights to the character.[2] They soon contacted Toei Animation to make an animated series based on Calimero, and on October 15th, 1974, the first episode aired through NET Network, with the final episode airing on September 30th, 1975.[3]

The show would be dubbed into many different European languages in its lifetime; however, the original Japanese audio remains to be some of the most elusive among fans.


Episodes of the 1974 series have been dubbed in European languages, as well as in Arabic, and can be found online; However, the series' original Japanese audio is very hard to find. Unlike the 1992 Calimero anime, no known VHS or DVD releases of the 1974 series have been released with the original Japanese audio.

There were 45 episodes made for the show. Unlike most anime, most episodes were split into two 11 minute segments, with each segment having their own unique title. 24 of the 45 episodes have currently been found.

In September 2018, a user known as "Yuriko o" uploaded episodes 17-19, and later various others in Japanese on YouTube. Sometime between September 2018 and March 2019, his channel was terminated, leaving the episodes no longer available. However, they were all saved and re-uploaded on OneDrive by the Lost Media Wiki user KristoHam.
