Osamu Tezuka


        During the 60's, the world knows the first anime TV series: TETSUWAN ATOMU (Iron-Arm Atom), rebaptized ASTROBOY outside Japan.  The successful comic strip in the 50's, was created by Osamu Tezuka (1928-1989), and animated in black and white from 1963 to 1966 through his own company: Mushi Productions.  Tezuka, was an excellent medicine doctor (like his father) but more interested in drawing, and a big fan of American animators like Walt Disney or Max Fleischer.  Astroboy becomes a worldwide hit, and another anime series, like Prince Planet or Gigantor.  Tezuka drew his character with big saucer-like eyes, style adopted like standard by all Japanese animators.  It is for this reason, and not because of a distorted perspective of the occidental eyes appearance.  193 chapters were produced buy only 104 were shown outside Japan.    The themes of all his work are 

"Love all creatures!" 


"Love everything that has life!" 

with these themes he gave us big messages.  

"Preserve nature"

"Bless life" be careful of a civilization that puts too much stock in science" 

"Do not wage war"
