            While I don't have the information on Kimba right at hand, I do
know that it is available on video (that or I was seeing bootlegs). Try
Dicken's video at 1-800-228-4246 or your local Japanese Animation store (look
in the yellow pages on comic books--frequently there will be a store that
specializes in Japanese comics and anime).
If you still can't find anything on Kimba and you have access to USENET news
post to the anime newsgroups your request.
If all else fails I can try calling around to some anime fan clubs for you.
Kimba is considered a "warm fuzzy" anime series so many anime lovers don't care
for it (instead prefering such horrors as "Fist of the Northstar"). Be prepared
for some derrision when asking about it at various clubs or stores.
Good Luck,
