It's animation may be inconsistent, and they barrow a lot from the disney strategy, but Alakazam the Great was a big step forward for japanese animation and with a morally strong story at its core.
Give Alakazam the Great credit where it is due. Yes Alakazam was the first Japanese Anime to make it across the Pacific to our shores but Alakazam is a crude (not in the vulgar sense) demonstration of what anime would become years down the line. Alakazam feels more like on old Disney cartoon preachy humility storyline and all. The characters are likable enough but the plot is more for young childern as adults will find it very simplistic and cheaply made.
