Taro the Dragon Boy

1979 NR

A selfish boy learns the importance of helping others in Kirio Urayama's family-friendly adventure anime. After gaining magical powers from a wizard, young Taro soon learns that he can put his special gifts to use only if he's helping those in need. Toward that end, Taro undertakes the task of freeing his long-lost mother from a spell that's turned her into a dragon. The story is based on an ancient tale from Japanese folklore.
