In the year 2000, robots are commonplace and in many cases, have replaced human beings in the workplace and in other roles. Dr. Tenma used to be the jovial head of the Institute of Science; but once his son Tobio was killed in a tragic accident, he turned his attention to building a robot to replace his loved one. Named Astro Boy, Tobio's replacement was intelligent and thoughtful; yet he didn’t age, and ultimately Dr. Tenma resented his creation and sold him to a cruel circus manager. Luckily for Astro, he was soon liberated by the current head of the Institute of Science and given a new life. In addition to learning how to become a better "person," Astro uses his nerves of steel and superhuman strength to put a stop to evildoers and withhold justice for all!

one of the greatest artworks of all time and history is tezuka osamu's momentous tetsuwan atom, which not only birthed the star-forming nebulae of "anime" and "manga," but also constructed a necessary barrier between the west and east (disney and tezuka, respectively) read more

Astroby 1963 is not to bad for a black and white cartoon. Gives a nice futuristic touch but at the same time it could of been better. Wasn't a huge fan of it. read more
