Actually, he gets slapped a few times by the fin of the seal in very Looney Tunes-esque fashion.
I find Little Astro Boy to be a very entertaining series, despite the target audience for the show. The slapstick humor is pretty funny, the characters are all unique and interesting, and the animation is great. I really like the art style too. The only downside of the show, in my opinion, is some of the English voice acting; while some of the English voice actors are pretty good, some of them are downright awful.
It's kind of sad that the series never got much recognition, but at least the Japanese DVD of it is available now. For a while, none of us were really sure that Little Astro Boy was even going to shown outside of Nigeria at all.
EDIT: After listening to it some more, I think Astro is actually saying "pipo", which would sound like a robotic onomatopoeia. I'll indicate this when posting Episode 2.
