The anime was aired across Japan on Fuji TV Sundays at 6 p.m. from 4 October 1981 to 26 December 1982. In Japan, it was one of Tatsunoko’s most successful shows of the 1980s in terms of ratings, regularly scoring around 15-20%, but it achieved even greater success when it was adapted for theItalian TV market in 1983 under the title Gigi la Trottola. Due to the anime’s success in Italy, the complete manga was also released there (keeping the original Japanese title and character names) in 2001.
