There are so many that I can't do everything at once so this time is volume 4!

1. Goku's Great Adventure

ProductionDate Released

Goku's Great Adventure 1967 (source: internet)

This one as probably you have guessed or thought sounds familiar, but Yes the world most popular anime DragonBall's Goku was spired by this Goku. In fact the first Goku from DB has the extensible stick as this monkey Goku has and many characters and items are very similar that you can tell how Akira Toriyama got ideas from older anime series.

Tezuka Osamu's "Boku no Son Goku" is a manga based on "Saiyuki 西遊記". 
Based on this manga, Mushi Production created this work as a slapstick gag anime.
The characters and the content of the story are satirized in a modern style, and most of them have been remade except for the basic setting that Sanzou Houshi goes to Tenjiku to get the scriptures. As for the characters, a female character named Ryuko has been added.

The monkey Son Goku, who was trapped in the rock because of the rampage, is finally released and becomes a companion to Sanzou Houshi heading to Tenjiku. The companions along the way are the gluttonous pig Hakkai, the old man Sa Gojo who is obsessed with the treasure hunt for a lot of money, and Tatsuko, the daughter of the wizard who occasionally show ups. Goku's adventure journey continues while defeating youkai and gangsters.

This one the first hero in all history started in 1931 as Kamishibai or Paper story shows in Japan. It's been broadcasted in many countries including Brazil, Italy, South Korea etc with different names so even though Toho was showing this anime as well as movie of it, it has lost media for more than a couple of times. Strange..
Well, nowadays, you can see many cartoons and animes got some inspiration from this super hero.

A TV animation of a mysterious hero who has been active in paper-story shows since before the war.


The monster Nazo, who is in the air tower Nazo Tower armed with super weapons, plans to conquer the world. Well-meaning scientist Dr. Yamatone opposes Nazo's ambitions, but his enemies are mighty. However, when Marie, a girl around Yamatone, makes a wish for a golden bat, a monster, a golden bat, appears out of nowhere with a high laugh. He was the ally of justice who revived from the sarcophagus of the ancient Atlantis era!
