In kid life I was a huge fan of the Manga/Anime classic, even though the boy next door, Pauly, laughed at the buggy eyes and weird animation. He said Astro boy was stupid, and it would never come back. He cackled with glee when the reruns stopped. Ha ha, Pauly!
Hmmm…now that I see some of the old clips, I can see Pauly’s point. It’s a kid thing, and now I don’t really understand..
Thanks to Pink Tentacle, we can also see the darker side of superpowered kid-robots
