In 1984, the Italian RAI channel approached Astro Boy-creator Tezuka and asked him to make a series of Bible stories for this international coproduction that were closer to the originals than the apocryphal Superbook: Video Bible. Tezuka threw himself into adapting his earlier manga version of the Old Testament, even to the extent of working as a humble animator on the Noah's Ark episode. The series was not completed until 1992, long after the death of its creator, and though it was soon screened in Italy, Germany, and the U.S., it did not receive a Japanese broadcast until 1997, when it was dumped on the WOWOW satellite channel. Coro, a sloe-eyed fox, acts as the viewpoint character for the entire series, witnessing the Fall of Man, the Flood, the rise of King David, and other major events. There was simply no time to allow for the many minor stories included in Superbook.
