Looking for the title of an Anime
« on: December 27, 2013, 04:27:16 PM »
Hy.

When i was young, i used to watch an anime series on TV, sadly i don't remember much about it (specially not the title)
Here's what i do remember :
- there where some kids that had a big red car that could transform in all kind of things (i think i remember it transforming into a boat, a plane and things like that)
- they where on an island that later turned out to be a huge ship covered by vegetation
- they had to fight with some "grown ups", i think they where pirates but i might be wrong.

I used to watch it on the german television (Pro7 or Sat1) and I don't speak german, so most of what i understood from it was the action :p
I think the animation style was similar to that of Naruto, but since it was over 15 years ago i might remember it wrong.

So, does anybody have any idea what's the title of the anime ?
Anybody got any idea ?

Thanks in advance.

P.S.
i really hope i'm not mixing up the memories from 2 or more animes into one :)

I'll ask my son when he gets home later.
I think he will know.

Here is a list of anime series from the 80's and 90's:

Maybe there is one title (+short description) that juggles your brain so much that you remember it again :)

I did a DuckGo search on "anime where island was a huge ship covered by vegetation".

Might be:
Thriller Bark
Thriller Bark Arc
Fillers Galore in Naruto Shippuden August 2011 Schedule | Saiyan Island

Looks like these could have been fun viewing.

Thanx for the replies.

I forgot to say that for a long time the kids thought they where in the jungle, then they realize it's a huge island and only later on do they realize that the island is a metal ship covered with vegetation. I think they got on it by mistake, their "transformer car" broke and they never managed to fix it well enough to be able to leave. Also, the kids looked more like the buncs from Peter Pan as there was a big fat one, a tall one, a small kid and a few girls, in total i think there where like 10-12 kids.

On the other hand, looking at the list provided by Shades i just realized how many animes i watched as a kid (i think i had too much time on my hand :p ), so ... i'm starting to doubt my memories, what i think was 1 anime might be the memory from many animes that i saw back in the day.

P.S. the people from Thriller Barc Arc and OnePiece are similar to what i remember, but the island doesn't look like what i remember it.

Thanx for all the help, i knew it was kind of a stab in the dark specially since i remember very few details.

Thanks to the link provided by Shades I've found another archive of 80's cartoons, it's huge, i'll look over it maybe i can find something similar to what i remember.
In case anybody is interested the address is http://80scartoons.net

If i do manage to find it i'll post another message here.
