I always liked the Karolia Tetsujin colors. Also, does anyone know if this episode was one of the 52 episodes of Gigantor? And if so what was Karolia's english name?

Yes, the Karolia episode was transferred to Gigantor (as well as the doppelganger Tetsujin episode that took place right before that led up to the Karolia episode). They are episode 28 and 27, respectively, and you can watch them on Hulu for free (if you're weren't already aware).

The name used for the country of Karolia in Gigantor was Keenymeanie, as in the country of Keenymeanie.
I mean, they both start with "k," so. . .

I'm sure it was among the same reasons that got us names like Dick Strong and Bob Brilliant.
That and it's possible that Keenymeanie sounded just goofy enough and fit the mouth movements to warrant the replacement; I mean, it was then an American kids' cartoon, so things had to sound silly and fun.

I suppose so. Maybe because I'm spoiled from watching Johnny Sokko where the nations names sounded realistic but I guess whimsical is fun too
