Télétoon Rétro adds UFO Robot Grendizer aka Goldorak
The French Teletoon Retro feed will be adding Go Nagai’s Grendizer this September. The third entry in the Mazinger franchise dates back to 1975 with the show’s 74 episode run concluding in 1977. A French dub of the show began broadcast in Quebec in the 1980s under the title of Goldorak. Carole Bonneau, Vice President Programming at Télétoon Rétro has said that the show was often requested for the network. Grendizer follows Duke Fleed, a survivor of the Vega Star raised on Earth as he fights back against the Vega invasion with his titular robot.
Just last year the Quebec based Imavision released the series on DVD:
