25th Anniversary

Twenty-five years ago yesterday I watched an incredible Japanese anime robot movie. At least I remember it being incredible, I was ten years old. It was on right before the Chicago Bear’s victory in Super Bowl XX. I remember wanting to watch the lead-up stuff to the Super Bowl, but I saw this movie on channel 32 and it really captured my attention. Every year during Super Bowl season, I am reminded of this movie. It is my wish to find out what movie this was. It’s possible it was Robotech, but I’m not convinced. I don’t remember there being too many humans in the movie.

Here’s a bit.ly link that does an ebay search for: “tv guide” 1986 “joan collins” http://bit.ly/ebaytvguide

Are you ready to get your mind exploded? The Chicago Public Library responded to my answer. ——–artdude75, We indeed have the TV Guide on Microfilm and was able to assertain the answer to your question. The afternoon of 1/26/1985 Channel 32 showed two movies before the Super Bowl was broadcast at 4pm. 1) At Noon — The Three Stooges in Orbit (1962) 2 hours.2) 2pm — Robotix (1985) An animated children’s series chronicaling the robot wars. 2 hours.
