Discotek Gets Dr. Slump

Screen Shot 2013-06-12 at 6.01.43 PMDiscotek Media has acquired the first five Dr. Slump movies and plans to release them in a single, subtitled DVD collection ‘soon.’

Dr. Slump is a comedy about a man who invents a little girl robot named Arale. The two live in a world filled with anthropomorphic animals where Arale’s stupidity often gets her into trouble.

The series was the first major hit for Akira Toriyama, who went on to create Dragon Ball Z.  The TV series ran for 243 episodes (with a ’90s remake running an extra 74).  The five movies Discotek has picked up were originally released between 1981-1985.
