Cartoon Production Information:

Based on the original manga character from the popular comic book series of the 1950s.

Air date reflects first airing in Japan.

Astro Boy tells the story of an atomic-powered robot, Astro, who becomes a reluctant superhero fighting for justice and peace for humans and robots alike. Created in Metro City, Astro lives in a futuristic society populated by both humans and robots.

Astro is a new development in evolution. He possesses awesome abilities, including super strength, jet rocket feet, arms which allow him to fly at extreme speeds, and the most advanced artificial intelligence in the world. However, the secret to Astro's victories is not his super-powers, but the fact that he is the first robot with "kokoro." This Japanese word encompasses the concepts of heart, spirit, intelligence, and human-like personality and emotions. He's clever, resourceful, and has a strong sense of justice, always attempting to reason with his adversaries.

Originally intended to be a secret, Astro was built by research scientist Dr. Tenma, once head of the Ministry of Science, who modeled the robot in the image of his deceased son. Never able to fill the void that Dr. Tenma felt over the loss of his son, he shut down Astro, burned down the Ministry and fled. Years later, Astro was discovered by the new head of the Ministry, Dr. O'Shay, who powers him up and takes him in, serving as his mentor, providing a home, enrolling him in school, and creating a robot family for him. Also driven by the belief that robots and humans should be friends, Dr. O'Shay becomes Astro's greatest ally.

Occasionally aiding Astro in defending humanity is his robot sister Zoran, along with other robot and human friends. Mankind's only hope to surviving the onslaught of rebellious robots is a robot himself: the fearless, selfless, incorruptible champion known as Astro.
