Trivia

Although originally intended only for the US airings of the show, the name "Astro Boy" proved to be popular among Japanese viewers as well, and so the names "Astro Boy" and "Tetsuwan Atomu" are interchangeable in Japan. See more »

Goofs

In the first episode, it's the year 2000 when Dr. Tenma/Boynton starts building Astroboy. One year passes as Dr. Tenma builds Astroboy, and several years pass as Astroboy is supposed to be growing up. However, later episodes in the series say it's still the year 2000. See more »

Astro Boy- entertainment for kids but not anyone from Minn
31 October 2009 | by (Central Coast, California) – See all my reviews

"Astro Boy" the original series not only broke ground but was a fun and a much loved series for kids at the time, much more so than what passes for "animation" or cartoons now days. It and "Gigantor" apparently just zoom over the heads of people that need to be hand fed all aspects of cartoons, etc. These were entertainment that kept the viewing child's mind involved instead of hypnotized by blatant meaningless tripe like so much on Adult Swim. The new movie, which approximates the overall intent and background story of the series is somewhat fun, with a good look. I do however recommend the series to new viewers. It is something I would introduce my kids to.
