The very first anime ever produced, Osamu Tezuka's original Astro Boy delighted children around the world with its touching stories and compelling characters. In a future where science fiction is reality, Dr. Boynton creates a super-robot in his deceased son's image. Named Astro Boy, the robot can swim oceans, leap over mountains and even fly into space, but he can't replace the doctor's son. Abandoned and disowned, Astro Boy is soon befriended by Dr. Packadermus J. Elefun of the Institute of Science, and together they embark upon amazing adventures. With super-strength, rocket-powered flight, a selfless heart, and a kind demeanor, Astro Boy fights a never-ending crusade against the forces of evil!
