Fantastic series to show your kids.
16 April 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I grew up watching this show religiously. I'd get up before school at 6.00am and be awestruck at the animation and mature themes. There was an overriding feeling of darkness and despair whilst sitting there with the morning sunrise coming through the curtains of my home. The show had its lighter moments for sure, but scenes of robots with seemingly human like appearance getting destroyed (violently) was something of an awakening to me, especially since I was more familiar with the more kiddie friendly "Thomas The Tank Engine". "Astro Boy" was also very intelligent and philosophical for a show basically aimed at the young and this is why the show has held up very well.

A great series which has now been transferred to DVD in an excellent box set! Long live Astro!
