Astro Boy TV show (2003)

Years before the movie with Freddie Highmore, Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, Samuel L. Jackson, Kristen Bell, Bill Nighy, Eugene Levy, Elle Fanning, David Bowers, Nathan Lane, and Matt Lucas, there was this anime version of “Astro Boy” than the black and white version. This was on YTV for sure!!

The scientist builded and created a robot son after he lost one. He named it Astro than Toby. Not only it can play with toys, but it can fly with rocket boots, shoot a laser from his finger, have blasters on his arms, and have green glowing eyes in the dark.

He met friends along the way like cop with a hairbrush moustache under his nose in a dog like cop car, his fathers doc friend with the big nose, a girlfriend of Astro, and two warrior friends of Astro that looked different.

I liked the way they are, even when they fly with him in the opening intro as they looked like purely human friends to Astro.

There were two episodes that I only saw in this TV anime show. One where he saves the city and the other a full episode, was when he saved a town from a natural disaster. A flood rushing from the mountains.

This TV show was cancelled from YTV later then, as there was no merchandise. It was a great show, as I didn’t want it too predictable. For a mad super villain that might do in this TV show. 9/10 stars and a “B+” for this.
