1968? Yikes, this is older than most series that have been redone save for anime like Astro Boy and Osomatsu-kun which are a bit older.

I guess if something this old can be brought back for a new series, there's always hope for that subsequent season of anything.

There seems to be a trend of remaking old animes. I'm all for this though, since I love short animes and all things Sugita. Plus I've enjoyed the recent remakes that have come out.

I wonder if this might make the older series easier to find, I tried recently and it's very hard to find any copies of them or any translations. Looking forward to the new short since it means at least that will probably be translated!
