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.
