Superbook (Anime Oyako Gekijo) is an anime television series produced by the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN)in conjunction with Tatsunoko Productions in Japan. The series chronicled the events of the Bible's Old and New Testaments in its 52 episode run. The first 26 episodes aired from October 1, 1981 to March 29, 1982. The series began at the home of a young boy named Christopher Peepers (original name: Sho Azuka) who discovers the magical Bible "Superbook" (Timebook) that speaks and sends him and his toy robot Gizmo (Zenmaijikake) back in time to the early events of the Old Testament. Gizmo can walk and talk, but only for the duration of the adventure (and he still needs to be wound up regularly). Chris' best friend Joy (Azusa Yamato in Japanese) accompanies him on his adventures into a time and place that only "Superbook" can help them see for themselves.
