Kimba and Simba

August 13, 1994

To settle the simmering Kimba-Simba controversy ("A 'Kimba' Surprise for Disney," July 13), I have a suggestion. Why not resurrect and restore the classic "Kimba, the White Lion" episodes and air them with reasonable fanfare on, say, the Disney Channel?

Then everyone can decide whether Disney owes animator Osamu Tezuka appropriate screen acknowledgment. At the same time, Tezuka's groundbreaking series (and its equally engaging, rarely seen sequel, "Leo the Lion") can be exposed to a whole new generation of youngsters and animation buffs.
