History

The series was produced by SEK Studio starting in 1977. Prior to creating the series, they had created films such as the anti-USA propaganda film Time Bomb, animated films based on Korean fairy tales, and the animated series Clever Raccoon Dog which focused on subjects such as road safety and scientific information. Over a period of 35 years, 32 episodes were produced with a notable gap in time in which a new episode hadn't aired between 1983 and 1997. The series has stopped airing new episodes since 2012 and reruns have not been broadcast since 2013.

An English dub of the first 26 episodes was released by Italian production company Mondo TV titled Brave Soldiers, which featured voice talent such as Dan Green and Mike Pollock, and edits out aspects such as North Korean propaganda, though it remains to be seen if the other remaining episodes will be dubbed.

On IMDb, the show has received a 4.6/10 rating from 89 users.

Writing for The Daily Dot, Sherry Tucci described the series as "Breaking Bad as a cartoon."
