Robotech – a bri​ef history:
 
Robotech producer Carl Macek was recruited by Harmony Gold to adapt Macross for the US market. To meet television syndication requirements of the time, Carl deftly edited three Japanese anime series (Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross and Genesis Climber MOSPEADA) and created the concept of Robo-technology to tie them together into one epic​ ​
85-episode saga. Robotech introduced a whole new generation of Western fans to anime, and audiences grew to love Rick, Lisa, Minmei, Roy, Claudia, Gloval, and many more.
