I just finished an interview of Fred Ladd in the 1965-01 issue. Sadly, there was not much to it. He did mention that moms were present to watch with their kids, and had a positive feeling about the one with baby elephant Pura.

Here is the splash page of Part Two of the manga adaptation of "The Moon Monsters!/Earth Defense Squadron!" episode from the April, 1965 issue of "TetsuWan Atomu Club" magazine. Note Atom is drawn with a weapon in his hands; something that does not happen in the story.

Below are the covers for the issues that feature the above three part episode, plus the splash pages for the first and third installments respectively.--Astrobuddy

Great! Now can you give us details about the story of the girl robot, "Elina" and who is that man with the crazy beard?-Astrobuddy

The man is Dr. Garon; Erina is his robot that he sent out to defeat other robots. Sadly, using google and MS translators for dialog leaves much to be desired. The item that Atom gives to the Dr. was inside Elina, & she removed it after her fight with Atom, & asked him to give it to her papa. 30 seconds later, she exploded.

"Good thing too."

"She was my best friend."

Thank you for filling in info on this story. My assessment above is accurate in that "Erina" or "Elina" meets a sad ending.--Astrobuddy.

Hi, Jeffbert! I forgot to ask you if you know what that rectangular device that Astro Boy gives to Dr. Garon is? I know it came from Elina, but what is it? What is it for?--Astrobuddy

Without looking, I would say it is her electrobrain. She removed it from her chest panel.
