Storyline

Created by the government to fight of world threatening peril Big Guy was the world's first artificially intelligent robot... or so the government wanted us to believe. But Big Guy is really just a super-suit with a man inside posing as Big Guy's mechanic. The world was not to know Big Guy wasn't A.I. because they couldn't tell society the technology wasn't ready yet. Years later Big Guy finds himself being replaced by an enthusiastic young robot named Rusty who actually has A.I. as well as the mind and personality of a ten-year old. But when saving the world proves too hard for Rusty Big Guy is called out of retirement. But now he must show the young robot the ropes. Written by Kai-18

Patriotism at its Best
11 September 2001 | by (Norfolk, VA) – See all my reviews

The show "Big Guy and Rusty" was deceptively interesting. Upon first hearing of it, I thought it would be off the air within a week. Of course, I had never read the comic, mind you. Little did I know that one viewing of one episode would lead to me become an absolute fanatic of the show. Not only has it inspired me to buy all the comics relating to the show, but has also inspired me to be a better American and to show respect for my country. That's right, folks. A kid's cartoon show has compelled to salute the flag and recite the pledge of allegiance.
