:cry: There are 2 episodes to my knowledge whose video has been lost, this one & 125th Episode: Find the Bacteria. However, that one at least has many still photos & even some crude animation, while this one does not. Both are included as extras, rather than being in their proper sequences among the other episodes. :(

Anyway, this one was impossible to follow, because I do not speak or read Japanese, while that one was at least comprehensible.

Yes, I know the ones you mean. You're right ep. 127 is hard to understand, but 125 is and it's one of my favorites, especially at the end where we see Astro holding a huge serenge needle, smilling at the crooks who stole the bacteria and now are infected with it and need the antidote. :Next!. :wahah: :lol:

Could you post that pic, please? :D

I will, but right now I am trying to view the rest of set 1 before set #2 arrives (It shipped today). I must verify that all discs play properly. :D

Hi Eileen Sobora,

Have you ever seen the Astro anime of the 60's or read the manga from the 50's and 60's? He was pure hearted then too and so was the man who created him Osamu Tezuka. Astro was not smilling evily in that seen. It was meant as a joke and I don't think he really used the giant needle. ;)

I just watched an episode from the 60's last night called Vampire Vale. It was Astro's version of the Dracula story, perfect for halloween. Astro had to do battle with a vampire who used to be a friend of Dr. O'shay's, but now is evil. Astro almost lost to him, but managed to win. :lol:

Please don't hate the 60's version too much until you've seen it. It's actually the funniest version because it has the manga humor still intact. Also it has Astro's sister Uran, his brother Cobalt and baby brother Chitan. :lol: So give it a try. ;)

You should give a chance to the old ASTROBOY series :)

it's the old series, when I was younger, that make me a fan now :D
( I have a little amount of the vintage episode and still they are the greatest, from my point of view)

Hi Goldo 101,

Welcome to the forum. Yes I agree the 60's Atom's are the best and funniest in my opinion too. I have all the Japanese episodes plus some of the English dubs. I never get tired of that show. :lol:

Now that character wouldn't have been Don Dracula? I think Tezuka created him a bit later though.....
