Cartoon Production Information:


This TV series ran for 52 episodes.

The series had its genesis in an 80-minute 1968 Toei theatrical film of the same name. Kimio Yabuki directed; writers were Hisashi Inoue and Morihisa Yamamoto. Reiji Koyama was the designer, while Akira Okuwara was the animator. Seiichiro Uno, the composer, would have the same role in the TV series.

The movie used several of Hans Christian Andersen's stories, particularly "The Red Shoes" and "The Little Match Girl." A 73-minute version was dubbed for American release in 1971 as "The World of Hans Christian Andersen."

In the TV series, some Andersen tales were each told in one episode, while others were told over several episodes. A girl named Candy was used as a framing device.

The many different staff members were encouraged to vary their styles. Several episodes were serious, others light-hearted.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
