AMV [13 May 2011|12:59am]

Well, this community looks like it's beyond dead, but I'll post here anyway. I'm a few weeks late to the party, but the news that the sequel is going to start airing in September 2012 got me so excited that I decided to make an AMV about the original series. I haven't seen many MCoG videos around, so if anyone knows any, I'd love to get links.

MCoG fanfic -- I hope this is okay to post [02 Mar 2006|06:03pm]

Hi! I just joined this community. I'm a huge fan of MCOG, but haven't really been involved in the apparently dwindling fandom. I did, however, write this little story this morning. May not be your idea of how it goes, but I consider it a lost moment from the series.

Title: Children of the Sun
Fandom: Mysterious Cities of Gold
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Discussion of sexuality of underage characters

I've been watching a set of MCoG DVDs I purchased a short while ago, and I have an utterly random, trivial question.

In the episode where the sailors and the children are captured by the Amazon women and taken to be sacrificed to the Amazon's rain god, Zia says something about "oh, all this is my fault", and I've heard fans of the series blame her for their near-miss at being sacrificed before.

I'm lost, though as to why it was Zia's fault that they were captured. I've watched the episode several times looking for some reason why something Zia said or did would have ultimately been what led to their being caught, but I can't find anything. Could someone fill me in?

I just started a community for trading odd outdated shows as media files. I've already posted a few recommendations (my so called life and the mysterious cities of gold) but other shows I'm interested in trading are fraggle rock, the muppet show, muppet babies, any saturday morning cartoons from the 70's, 80's or early 90's, nicktoons, square pegs, get smart..and anything else you can think of.

So, what's MCoG to you? [18 Oct 2005|09:54pm]

[ mood | nostalgic ]

So, this LJ community seems to be going the way of the dead parrot rather quickly.

However, in an attempt to make it last a little longer, and to suppress any more Monty Python humour from yours truly or, even worse, a repetition of Baldrick's masterpiece, "The German Guns", I'll throw this challenge into the ring.

The MCoG fanfic challenge - basically, you all have to come up with some form of short story, from drabble to novel, based on the series. This can be missing moment, future event, past story, whatever you like.

For those of you who frequent the portion of The Archives dedicated to Mysterious Cities of Gold fanfiction (http://www.bitchnmoan.net/fanfic/categories.php?catid=8&parentcatid=8,) you'll know that I like Esteban and Zia to live happily ever after with each other. However, this isn't required for this challenge. The best, at my discretion, will be permanently uploaded to The Archives (the one place that is dedicated to ensuring that MCoG fanfic will live for a very long time.)

So take that hour out of your time to write something. Take that hour to put your thoughts down in words. Is there some event you feel the series didn't cover fully? Did you always want to see Esteban and Zia's wedding? Will Tao ever get a girlfriend? Note it down and give us your thoughts - it doesn't take long to write a drabble or short story, but a lot of people would love to see your ideas. Lets give it a while until we decide whether this LJ is really serving anyone or has just died a natural death - 01/11/2005 is the deadline. GET WRITING!

Does anyone have any of the episodes as sharable files? I have a few and I'd be willing to trade.

This is so cool [17 Aug 2005|04:02pm]

No-one I know remembers this. I've only vague memories. A boy with half a medallion and a man with a swirly cloak with the other half. A girl with a full medallion and a boy with an urn.

It's not fair the dvd isn't available in english!

Feeling all nostalgic.

I'm a librarian, and I was very disappointed to find out this series isn't available on DVD to buy for the collection--they'd frown on unofficial sources up in the top office, ya know. ;)

I was a teenager when this show was running on Nick, but I was totally entraced with it. What a complex, neat, well put-together series. A little heavy-handed in the whole "Weapons of the sun!" thing at the end, but by then, I was mostly interested in Esteban and his past. I wanted to know more! I think I could have watched the series for ages.


Anyone to petition for official DVDs here?

Wow - an interesting find on LJ. I watched the series as a kid, and now own one of the many unofficial English dvds of it, and it still stands out as one of the most innovative and original cartoon series' created.

Something that some of you may find interesting - I'm an administrator at a multi-fandom fiction archive, and we have our own category for MCoG stories that either dig deeper into the backstory or try to continue the series. There's only seven stories there at the moment, but we hope to add to that; and these seven are pretty much the only ones out there on the internet at the moment.

We also have links to a number of other MCoG related sites and discussion boards.

http://www.bitchnmoan.net/fanfic/index.php - just click on the categories link and you'll find some stories you may find interesting.

I'm so excited that there's a community for Cities of Gold! It was my favorite show growing up, and I want it to come out on DVD soooo bad. If you guys don't know yet, you can vote for tv shows to come out on dvd here: http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/showinfo.cfm?showID=5227 That should lead you right to cities of gold. You have to sign up to vote, but it's free.

today i found a copy of Les Mysterieuses Cites D'Or 'Les Series Cultes' on DVD in a DVD and CD market in China. It is DVD 2 of 4, featuring episodes 9 to 16 and looks to be the official French release. unfortunately there are no English dubs or subs, but I bought it anyway for Y10 (about 65p) because it's such a cool and random thing to find! The artwork is different to the one on amazon.fr and I'm going to go back next week to see if i can hunt down DVD 1, 3 and 4.

Brilliant! [10 Feb 2005|01:29pm]


Hey, all. I was thrilled to come across this community when doing a random search for Cities of Gold.

I adored this series as a child. The theme song still gets me excited-- I think Cities of Gold was all that was best of cartoons from that era; good plotting, good animation, a mixture of folklore and imagination that you don't often see in serialised cartoons these days.

I know that they have recently released Dungeons and Dragons on DVD in the UK. I'm waiting for the day they release this. I've only ever seen it on sale in France, and I think I'll buy the French version next time I go back.

Anway, huzzah for this community!
