    Don’t know if we could possibly track that down as there’s so many anime to exist, and the concepts may very well originate from live action shows of the time. I know that Mobile Suit Gundam (1979) does both those things, and I believe Space Battleship Yamato (1974) does as well. So if you wanted you could just keep going back a couple years at a time looking at the major shows of the 60s and extrapolate from then.
