The year is 1532. Esteban, a young boy, which loses his father, in the beginning, is told that he was saved by Mendoza, a navigator on a Spanish ship from a shipwreck in a storm at sea. The only clue however that we get in the beginning is that his identity is a medal that Esteban wears about his neck. Esteban joins Mendoza on a trip from Spain to the new world. They goto the Americas – where on a route he and Mendoza meet two other children. Zia, which is an Inca girl and Tao, which becomes the last member. He is from a highly advanced race.
All three are looking for different things. Esteban is on the journey to find his father and his identity, Zia for her father and Tao for the remains of his race. Together they explore and get this unique friendship together. The Mysterious Cities Of Gold is for sure a cartoon that can teach both young viewers and adults a few things. The clues for all three quests, however, all point to The Mysterious Cities of Gold and so the children, Mendoza, Sancho and Pedro. The two last ones are just funny and clumsy sailors and friends of Mendoza start searching in a massive treasure hunt for the Cities Of Gold.
Same story but the totally different intro and outro songs for the Japanese version of The Mysterious Cities Of Gold
The story and everything is the same as in the European version of this cartoon. However, as you see this is the official Japanese opening of The Mysterious Cities Of Gold. The intro and outro are totally different. I also noticed Godzilla at the beginning of this episode that is on YouTube. Interesting add-on to a series.
The Mysterious Cities Of Gold was aired on TV3 in Scandinavia and it is one of those cartoons that you never forget.
