Anime I remember from my childhood

I remember watching all of these at some stage on French TV in the 1980's. Amazing what got past censors then eh? (Cat's Eyes, I'm looking at you) I haven't rated these unless I have gone back and watched them again in their entirety recently, cos my memories are rather vague in some cases, and in others all I can recall is how much I looked forward to the next episode. Anyway, is it any wonder I got back into anime?

She had the same name as me, and I had devoured the book the anime is based on.   No brainer that I loved this as a little girl, right?
