Toei Openly Shopping “Dr. Slump” Rights
Published by 10 April 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

It is a very loose connection to be drawing for a news update, especially on a site where we so strictly focus on just one of Toriyama’s series… but we will make a slight exception since there are crossovers with Dragon Ball.

According to ICv2, Toei will be shopping the rights to at least one of the Dr. Slump TV series at MIPTV in Cannes, France next week. At one point in time in the 1980s, the series was briefly held by Harmony Gold, who also did a brief test-run of the Dragon Ball series and movies. Since then, all we have had in North America has been a censored manga release from Viz.

Us fans of 1980s-1990s anime might have a lot of good things to be looking forward to in the near-future!
