Super Hard TV/Movie ID: I am trying to ID an animated film/tv show I saw in the 70s. I recall it having an anime look, like Speed Racer or Star Blazers, but I am reasonably certain it wasn't either of these.

I remember watching it on tv on a weekend afternoon in the mid to late 70s. It would have been on regular broadcast tv (we didn't have cable back then). All I can remember is there was a girl and a boy, and there was a climactic scene near the end where, after running from bad guys, it is revealed that whatever it is the bad guys are looking for/ the key to the puzzle / some important piece of information was in this ankle bracelet the girl was wearing. The ankle bracelet looked like a watch to me (I thought it was odd she would wear a watch on her ankle) or perhaps a locket. The scene takes place at what I remember being the edge of a volcano or crater of some kind, and there is a dramatic scene where (I think) she takes off the anklet and throws it to the bad guy, who falls into the volcano while trying to catch it... or something happens to save the day, I can't recall exactly what. I remember the girl was wearing a purple dress of some kind and had short, dark hair.
Not much to go on, but worth a shot!
