I have been searching for years(not exaggerating) for this movie(?) that I believe appeared on Saturday morning at some point in the 80's. It was on more that once.
I thought it might be anime but I'm not sure.
There was a group of adventures with characteristics similar to The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.[i]
One guy could blow people away
One guy could run really fast
One guy could see really far
The main character was a boy on some sort of quest.

Please help I am really beginning to doubt my sanity since no one but me remembers this!

A story similar to The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
with boy/young man(?) as the hero.

Maybe a version of,..

The Fool of the World
and the Flying Ship

Wow thanks for getting back so fast. The story wasn't like baron munchausen just the characters in this little group. The boy met them one at a time on his quest. I really thought this movie played on tv around the same time as The Mouse and Motorcycle[b].
Maybe even on the same channel and in the same time slot. Maybe a Saturday morning movie?

The Brothers Grimm wrote a story
that follows the Munchausen mold

Possibly,..

The Six Who Went Far

it was an episode of
Grimm's Fairy Tale Classics

I knew you nailed it as soon as I heard the intro music. Thank you thank you thank you!! I must have had several episodes mixed up into one in my head. You r totally awesome. I can't believe you found knew that which I have been searching for for years. Thanks for proving that I am not crazy just a bit senile. I started thinking about this show after me and my son got really into Miyazaki's movies. The animation reminded me of this show I saw when I was a child. I was also surprised to find out Miyazaki worked for Nippion animation, who made the Grimm Fairy Tales cartoon. THANK YOU...again! I can't wait to show these to my son. I know he will love them.
