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!
