Flint the Time Detective,known in Japan as JikūTantei Genshi-kun (時空探偵ゲンシクン,Space-Time Detective Genshi-kun),is a Japanese anime television series directed by Hiroshi Fukutomi. It was based on a manga by Hideki Sonoda and Akira Yamauchi and was published by Bros. Comics in Japan. A second manga by Bom Bom Comics was also produced and was released as a special promo for the anime. The anime aired from 1998 to 1999 in Japan and ran for 39 episodes.
In the United States,Flint the Time Detective aired from 5 March to 5 November 2000 on the Fox Family Channel as part of the "Made in Japan Sundays" block.Reruns were also seen on Fox Kids.
The series also aired in the Philippines via GMA 7 and dubbed in Filipino language which runs from late 2000 until mid-2001.
Sanrio,the company perhaps best known for creating Hello Kitty,holds the license to Flint the Time Detective in Japan. It is the only title in the company's roster to date to be aimed at elementary school boys.
The series is centered around the adventures of Flint Hammerhead,a boy from the prehistoric era who was resurrected from his fossil prison and became a Time Detective for the Time Police,although his competency as a detective is dubious. Much like Inspector Gadget ,much of the heavy thinking is done by Flint's friends Sarah and Tony Goodman who accompany him on his adventures. Flint,however,pulled his weight in battle when he would fight with the aid of his father Rocky Hammerhead whose partial resurrection left him a sentient talking rock with a face. Rocky,fashioned into a stone axe for Flint,served Flint as both sturdy weapon and adviser,the latter both in and out of battle. Flint's job as a Time Detective was to go back in time and convince Time-Shifters,cute,collectible creatures to ally with him to protect the timeline.
Usually,he fought against Petra Fina and her cronies Dino and Mite (very reminiscent of Marjo,Grocky,and Walther from Time Bokan ),servants of the Dark Lord. The Dark Lord himself sought to use the Time-Shifters' powers to invade the Land of Time,the creatures' home realm from whence he had scattered them. Similar to Pokémon or Digimon ,Time-Shifters originate as small,cute creatures who can "shape-shift" into much stronger forms for a time before reverting. This usually took two forms:an evil form (induced by the Petra Stamp,Uglinator's mark,or Dark Lord's magic) called a Con form and a good one brought forth by Flint and his team called a Master form.
The Great Four are Dark Lord's own Time-Shifters,created from flowers. Just like the regular Time Shifters,all four can transform,in the Japanese dub this form is called "Super" despite being a form of bad transformation,whereas the English dub changes it to "kon" to match the other Shifters bad transformations. In the finale,the four decided to revert to their original selves on their own.
Time Shifters (時空モンスター,JikūMonsutā,Space-Time Monster,usually shortened as Jikūmon (時空モン)) are creatures that help the Old Timer to run the Land of Time until the Dark Lord came and scattered most of them across time and space. Each one has its own special powers and can transform into Con forms (バッド変化,baddo henka,bad transformation) or Master forms (スーパー変身,sūpāhenshin,super transformation). Most of the Time Shifters' Master forms have a humanoid appearance (notable exceptions are Lynx and Unita),whereas their Con forms have a demonic appearance.
