Candy Candy

Who remembers Candy Candy? Just this morning I pulled out an old video that had two episodes of Candy Candy and another show called Little LuLu. I have such fond memories of watching this video tape and I was an especial fan of Candy. I loved the pretty drawing style and the nice stories filled with morals. Plus, gotta admit that Candy had a cute factor about her. She was like a combination of Anne Shirley and Pippi Longstocking.

Candy Candy was originally authored by Kyoko Mizuki and illustrated by Yumiko Igarashi. Later the story of Candy was retold in an animated television series.
