The very first movie adaptation of the manga was actually a live-action film. It is a cross between the over-the-top physical comedy from the manga and the campiness of the Adam West Batman TV show. It has a minimal plot serving to only introduce all of the characters, sans Goemon. Discotek released it in the US on DVD on 2006 February 28.
