Saturday Evening Cartoon: Sam the Olympic Eagle anime

All right...building on the mascot theme...

One of my favorite mascots during my formative years was the symbol of the 1984 Summer Games, Sam the Olympic Eagle:

I even still have the little PVC figures of him that I got when I was a kid...

It's only recently, though, that I discovered that Sam starred in a Japanese TV series!  Or...a TV special.  Or something.  For some reason, we never got this in the USA.  Which...well, it seems like we'd be a great target audience, doesn't it?  Here are what seem to be the intro, outro, and something else (a clip? a commercial? a cold open?) for the Sam the Olympic Eagle anime.

You can also catch a complete episode at Dailymotion!
