Really? Time for more research. I thought Ultraman 2 was an English dub of the 1979 Japanese Ultraman series (can't remember the precise name).
I know the original Time Fighters (aka Time Bokan) was released in Japan in 1975. Although it was released as a dub in the USA in the 80's, it's not really from the 80's. Later sequels were released through the 70's and into the 80's in Japan, but not under the same name and I don't believe the later sequels were the ones released in the US.
Can anyone clarify the info for me and show sources? I just packed my paper references, but not my Anime Encyclopedia. I'm certain they didn't appear in my main reference, but my Anime Encyclopedia doesn't give me any more info than I already have.
I'm trying to come up with a policy for cartoons like this. I used to say that if it was not originally produced in the 80's, it wasn't eligible, which would mean that even if something was produced in the 70's and later dubbed and re-aired in the 80's, I wouldn't post it. I'm reconsidering it, but I'm not sure about changing it or not. I might later add those, with notes about the original release, after I feel like I've done enough on the other cartoons already there.
