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

A kids series by Frank Miller?
25 October 1999 | by Kai-18See all my reviews

It's true. The guy who wrote the Dark Knight Returns (a great story about an aging Batman) and Sin City has created a show aimed for kids. And it rocks! It has strong stories, likable archtype style characters (Rusty is based on Astro Boy, Big Guy looks like a robot from an early 60s cartoon) and a fun atmosphere. And it's not just for kids. I watch it every week and enjoy the action packed adventures with tongue in cheek dialogue from Big Guy. It's theme song seems kinda cheezy at first but it grew on me with it's patriotic overtones (and I'm not even American) if Fox Kids shows more Cartoons like this I'll never get out on Saturday Mornings. Oh, and note that Jim Hanks (Tom's Brother) is the Voice of Big Guy's Alter ego.
