I vaguely remember the 60's version. I never did see the 80's version until I bought some of the tapes. One of the strongest memories was at the opening song where Astro knocks the row of bad guys down and then catches them in the cage.

It was rather oblidging of them to huddle together in a nice square so he could drop a cage on them that fit just perfectly! :lol:

That image was one of the few I remembered. Oh, to be a little kid again. :blink: :blink:

When I was younger i remembered watching the 80's series on tv. Later after I saw the movie metropolis I began looking up anything on Tezuka Osamu and found out more about astro boy and his new series. :wahah:

I remember watchin Astro Boy when I was about 6 or 7. I LOVED it. My dad used to tease me about Astro having to replace his energy casette, I used to get so mad and upset at him about it!!! I remeber the epside Lily of Pedigro Island, I ran to the laundry and cried and cried when Astro got his head chopped off!!!

Hey Dr Frag would love to see some photos of your cake!

My photo albums are at a different house right now, but I'll try to remember to get them. It was a great cake, the picture had Astro flying and there was a candle stuck right where his leading fist was so it looked like he was holding it! :)

everything astroboyish that's around.

I was about 12 when I watched this great anime the first time. it was on a
french TV-Channel called TF1 around 1986 to '87. At this time I couldn't understand
one french word but nevertheless it was my favourite animated cartoon.
I remember well the ending scenes of ev'ry episode as Astro made a summary of his
adventure :wub: . Even the opening and ending songs in french were a joy listen to.

I'm glad I've rediscovered this wonderful anime - every episode makes me feel warm
at heart :wub: :wub: .

(I hope you guys don't mind my funny english since this is not my mother tongue, but
I think you'll let me live. :D :D :lol: )

^^ This has been my first forum entry. I cherish those days... :wub:
