La Vache Qui Rit: Goldorak (1979)

The second Letraset promotion from La Vache Qui Rit (assuming Letraset had nothing to do with "Le Livre de la Jungle"), following "A La Conquête de l'Espace" — nine years earlier.

"Goldorak" is the French name for "UFO Robot Grendizer". It was broadcast in France from 1978.
