I wonder how they are able to release this without obtaining the Monchichis rights from the Japanese company that owns them. Hopefully this actually happens as Id love to get this series for my daughter! I have HD rips of the series from boomerang that she loves to watch.

I'm not sure on the ownership rights- it appears the cartoon is based on a Mattel toy that was licensed from the Japanese original. Maybe the cartoon itself is still considered the original work of Hanna-Barbera and there wasn't a need to go through the Japanese toymaker for permission?.....
In any case, it's good to see it get a release and glad it's one you can enjoy with your daughter. Smile
