Guitarist Buckethead, a big fan of the series, has made several references to the franchise within his music career. This includes naming his 1994 album and early band "Giant Robot" after the titular character. He also uses footage of the show in the background of some of his live events on a large screen behind him, of the venue he's performing at is capable of doing so. See more »

When I was in Kindergarten and First Grade I remember watching these episodes. I think Johnny Sokko was my first crush. I loved all the monsters and that good always won over evil. I also agree that this instilled my love for monsters. I remember going out to a brick pile behind our house with one of my best friends and we tried to build our own Robot out of bricks and wire. I was sooo upset that it didn't come to life. Anyway, I wish they would show these again so I can see how really cheesy they were.
