Storyline

Johnny Sokko is an ordinary kid, whose life took an extraordinary turn on a voyage when he meets a young man who befriends him. The boat is suddenly sunk by the minions of the terrorist organization known as the Gargoyle Gang who have a penchant for giant robots for their attacks. Finding themselves on an island base, the pair meet up with a scientist who has constructed the most advanced and powerful robot of all. Upset that his creation will be used for evil, the scientist shows the pair the robot and the wristwatch voice controller, set to imprint the next speaker as the sole person who can command the robot. Impulsively, Johnny speaks into it and becomes that controller. With the robot's power, they escape and Johnny learns that his new friend is an agent of the worldwide intelligence and anti-terrorist organization, Unicorn, which is dedicated to opposing the Gargoyle Gang. With no alternative, Unicorn recruits Johnny as a full regular agent. Now, Johnny has a vital role in this ... Written by Anonymous

My favorite show as a child!!!
25 November 2004 | by (Kansas City,Missouri (USA)) – See all my reviews

This was one of 3 shows I first remember watching, from the age of 2-6 years, and was my absolute favorite. The other two shows were Speed Racer and Batman.

I have not seen an episode of Johnny Sokko and His Giant Flying Robot, (as I remember it called), since I was about 8 years old. Through the years,I have mentioned it in conversations with others and surprisingly have never run across anybody who remembers it. Sure was cool to find it on this sight along with a couple positive comments! Let's hear from more!

P.S. Batman was campy and Godzilla's special effects were just as dated as 'Johnny Sokko' but look at the legends they've become. In my memories, Johnny Sokko is right there with them.
