Storyline

Astro Boy tells the story of a youthful robot boy - Astro - modeled after the deceased son of a research scientist, Dr. Tenma. Originally intended to be kept a secret, the atomic-powered robot becomes a reluctant superhero who fights for justice and peace for humans and robots alike. Created in Metro City, he lives among a 'retro-futuristic' society populated by humans and robots. His creator Dr. Tenma, head of the Ministry of Science, builds Astro in his son's image. Astro never can fill the void that Dr. Tenma feels over the loss of his son. Tenma shuts down Astro, burns down the Ministry of Science and flees. Some time later, Astro is discovered by Dr. O'Shay, the new head of the Ministry. Dr. O'Shay takes in Astro and serves as his mentor. Driven by the belief that robots and humans should be friends, Dr. O'Shay is Astro's greatest ally. He provides Astro with a home, enrolls him in school and creates a robot family for him. Astro possesses superb strength, including jet-rocket ... Written by Anonymous

Great 21st century remake of a classic!
1 May 2004 | by kingjimSee all my reviews

This new cartoon "Astro Boy" (two words) is the 21st century remake of the popular 80's cartoon "Astroboy" (one word). "Astro boy" is a pretty good modernization of the Astroboy we know and love. It is obviously set in the future which looks more futuristic than in the 80's "Astroboy". The animation is improved, which is obviously done with computers in some parts whereas the original "Astroboy" was all hand drawn. But story-wise, "Astro Boy" is not quite as good as the original 80's "Astroboy". Where "Astro Boy" is pretty good, the original "Astroboy" is excellent! But the new "Astro Boy" is still recommended viewing for all Astroboy fans out there. The new "Astro Boy" gets a 9 out of 10. The original "Astroboy" gets 10 out of 10.
