Heya all!

Maybe someone can help me with this:

About 11 or 12 years ago, when I was only 5 years old,
there was on TV an animated series
which (I think) was a Shoujo Anime called "Gigi".

I don't remember much of it 'cause I was only 5,
but I do remember that it was about a pink-haired girl
named Gigi, who looked a little like Chibi-Usa, and had
a transformation-"something" (I don't think it was a brooch
like the one that Sailor Moon has, but it was very close to it)
that allows her to transform to anything sho wanted to
(She also yells something like Ha-riki Ba-tiki... ).

I'm not sure it's a Shoujo Anime, 'cause I'm not sure about the
origin. It might as well be french animation, but the language it
was in, was English.

So, if this series still airs on one of the channels you have,
or if anyone of you knows something (anything) about that series,
PLEASE SPEAK UP!

I still haven't found anything about it, so please help me.

"Gigi" = "Magical Princess Minki Momo"

(From the people who turned Nausicaä into "Princess Zandra"...)

If she had pink hair, it might be Minky Momo. Beyond that, I dunno...

Gigi was the translation of the first Minky Momo series (1983).

oav a series. She also co-starred in the two oavs for the second series.

I mean, was the dubbed "Gigi" a series?--I'd been trying to find some
of the early and later "Minki Momo"'s, and yes, I'd be that desperate...

Gigi was a magic girl, she was the daughter of the king of the Dream planet.
Well the story begins when the Dream planet was available for all the humans.
But the king went to sleep, (he was very tiny and the queen was tall) but
tha panet started to move out of earth. Se he sent Gigi (his daughter) to
earth to make people to believe in dreams. She lived with a femily without
kids, and with her magic, make them to beleive hat she was their daughter.
She came with three pets, A big dog, a bird and the other i dony remember
very well.

She used a magic stick to convert herself into an adult with a proffesion,
at the words of "Magic Diamond, give me the power, a police officer I want
to be" or something like that. She had to do good things to people, so she
coud earn the jewels needed to make the dream planet come back to earth.

She also had a car with a trailer, that converted in a kind of helicopter.

That's what remember, because they showed many years ago.

Well, I've done a little research in the Web and found out that the
"series" I talked about was the 1st Minky Momo series ('82-'83) which
has been shown in English dub on Israel TV in 1985.

I think that what you are talkin' about in the 90 min OVA
"Yume no naka no Rondo" of Minky Momo from 1985 which was shown
in Israel (in English) in 1990.

True, I was only 5 years old in '85 and didn't understand English, but I'm
sure that the original Minky Momo serise was dubbed to English as
"Princess Gigi".

Anyway, the thing I'm looking for in particular is a sound file
or lyrics of the opening (or ending) theme of the English dubbed
OVA or the dubbed seires (if there was one...).

Does anybody knows where I can get it, or can make a sound file??

I think that a couple of OAVs have been made since the end of the second part
of the series.

Recently, Minky Momo was remade (1991). I've watched few episodes
of the new series, though, the "original" Minky Momo guest starred
in some episodes. While "original" Momo came from the Fenarinasa
( dream planet ), "new" Minky Momo came from the Marinnasa ( dream
land in the ocean) .

FYI, original Momo was played by KOYAMA Mami ( who played Esmerodo
in Sailor Moon R ), and the new Momo was played by HAYASHIBARA Megumi
( one of the most popular anime voice actresses in Japan)
