The 2003 animated TV series is what I’m most familiar with. That’s the one that I was raised on as a 2000 born baby.

1. Astro Boy’s first appearance was in 1951 in Captain Atom in which he held a supporting role, before being given his own series.

2. Astro Boy originally started off fighting crime with seven powers: jet powered flight, analytical skills, multilingualism, super hearing, headlight eyes, hidden weapons in his back and the ability to tell if a person is good or evil. Since then though more powers have been added to his repertoire.

3. There have been three different Astro Boy TV series (all animated) from 1963, 1980 and 2003.

4. Astro Boy has robot relatives! These include his sister Zoran/Uran, his brother Cobalt and his robotic Mama and Papa.

5. Osamu Tezuka (the creator of Astro Boy), is also the creator of the manga/anime series Kimba The White Lion and Black Jack!

Come for the pop culture. Stay for the bad grammar.


  1. That was a very good list. I’m mainly familiar with the 03 remake, too. That’s right about Tezuka creating Black Jack and Kimba the White Lion. I watched the latter for the first time a few years ago because I wanted to know how much The Lion King ripped it off.

      1. Nice! Black Jack was good even though I was mainly familiar with the 00s TV series. I heard the original OVAs and movies were great, too. Kimba is the one I’ve been more immersed to over the past few years recently.
