“Bad Seed in the Big Apple” (Beyblade episode, 2003)

Beyblade is a line of spinning-top toys originally developed by Takara. Beyblade: V-Force was an animated television show.

“Bad Seed in The Big Apple” was the title of episode 29, and it originally aired in Japan on July 29, 2002, and in the United States on November 15, 2003. (The IMDb date of February 21, 2004 appears to be incorrect.) According to a YouTube description by BEYBLADE Official: “Max is entered in a tournament in New York City and as luck would have it, his first opponent turns out to be Alan!”


Wikip[edia: Beyblade
Beyblade (ベイブレード, Beiburēdo, diminutive Bey, from the diminutive of beigoma) is a line of spinning-top toys originally developed by Takara, first released in Japan in July 1999, along with its debut series. Following Takara’s merger with Tomy in 2006, Beyblades are now developed by Takara Tomy. Various toy companies around the world have licensed Beyblade toys for their own regions, including Hasbro in Western countries, Sonokong in South Korea, and Takara Tomy for Eastern countries.

Both the toys and their names were inspired by beigoma, a traditional spinning top. The concept is similar to Battling Tops, a board game developed by Ideal Toy Company in 1968. The toy line was introduced with an accompanying manga series of the same name in 1999. In 2002, Hasbro began to sell Beyblade toys internationally (under license from Takara) along with a coordinated country-by-country release of localized versions of the TV series.
