I loved this show! I lived in S. California around 1969-1977 and remember watching this as a young boy. I was born in 1969. I would LOVE to see this show again to bring back the memories..... Sci-fi channel maybe??

Well, today I posted a iso with all I could remember from the show onto a message board. Here was what I remembered & typed...

"Growing up in S. California in the early 70's, I remember a TV show for kids. It was a Japanese or Korean show about a boy and his family who could turn into little rockets when someone blew a whistle. They would fight the evil guys...who would turn into green (?) slime when killed. I recall the boy had antenas on his head. Remember, I was like 6 years old and this is what I remember..... I just have NO idea on the name of the TV show.

Anyone remember this show??????"

- Not bad memory for 25+ years! Thankfully, a guy gave me the name and I did a google search. Tada! I felt as though I struck GOLD! Ahh the memories of my FIRST favorite TV show as a VERY young child.

> Glad to see that some other people remember this show. I have thought about it from time to time in my television reminiscing. When I was a teenager I watched this show on a channel out of Philadlephia (channel 17). I would have given anything to have been Miko. In fact I liked the program so much, I went out and hunted for a supersonic whistle like the one Miko had. The most recent reply to your message was very accurate as far as I can remember. I believe I watched almost every episode that was aired here in the US. I made it a priority not to miss this program. I would love to get videos of the series if they are available. Anyone out there know of any resources??
