Isao Takahata's 3000 Leagues in Search of Mother (, Haha o Tazunete Sanzenri) is a 1976 Japanese animated television series directed by Isao Takahata. It is loosely based on a small section of Edmondo De Amicis' novel Heart (Cuore), namely a monthly tale (racconto mensile) From the Apennines to the Andes (Dagli Appennini alle Ande), which was expanded into a 52-episode epic. The series aired on World Masterpiece Theater, a long-running animation series that featured an animated adaptation of a different classic book or story each year. From the Apennines to the Andes was the original title. Cuore was adapted into a second anime television series by Nippon Animation, the producers of World Masterpiece Theater, in 1981, but this second series was not part of the WMT. In countries like Iran, Portugal, Brazil, Peru, Spain, Venezuela, Colombia, Germany, Chile, Turkey, Malaysia, the Philippines, the Arab world, and Israel, the series was dubbed into several languages and became an instant hit. The series is known in Hebrew as HaLev (), which translates to The Heart (the title of the novel on which the series is based, which was widely read in Israel in the 1990s). The series is simply known as Marco in some European and Latin American countries. The series was a huge hit in Arabic, and it was dubbed Wada'an Marco ( ), which means Goodbye Marco.
