132 Prince Louis

Postby jeffbert » 9 years ago

This is the story of a mother's desire that her rather humble son become great. Specifically, Prince Louis is a fully prosthetic cyborg in a rather plump, goofy-type body, who wants to be cool.
Image
Among the guest stars are Haf-Wey / Knobby Knobody (of 43 His Highness Dead Cross / 43, Ditto),

Image
and Hanako-sensei / Miss Ann Thrope (of 69, Rebellion of the Dinosaur People / 59, Dinosaur Dilemma); she is the short one, the Queen is the tall. In the 1st image, Louis is in the background; apparently, he thinks his servants were slacking-off.

Image
It appears that George Jetson, after his series was canceled withonly 1 season (though a 2nd was made in the '80s), found work here. He is a TV news guy, who not only comes out of the screen, but is in both places at once. He announces the theft of a powerful robot,

Image
Shadow II.

Image
So, the queen having stolen Shadow II, has her son's electro-brain transferred out of his goofy body & into Shadow II.

Image

Image

Image
As far as I can tell (guess) they swapped brains.

Image

Image

Image
What's this, a loose button?

Image
Ah-- who needs it?

Image
But that button is VERY important!

Shadow II (in the goofus body) has run away, and been taken in by the good doctor.
Image
:lol:

Image

Image

Image
Another guest star makes an appearance. Here, he portrays ‘Shadow-hakasen,' the scientist who created Shadow II. Earlier, he portrayed Dr. Guiness / Prof. Jingo (80, Humanoid Bill / 71, Mighty Minute, in the English version).

He also portrayed ‘Zeman-hakase’ / Prof. Angus Muse (in 94, Angel in the Alps / 85, Angel of the Alps).

Image

Image
Uh-oh, Shadow-hakasen has just given us some rather bad news.

So, now Atom & Shadow II (in the fat body) must travel to the kingdom & replace the button before the nuke in Shadow II's cool body explodes.

Image

Image
Anther guest appearance, though Boon has to accept minor roles to escape typecasting. :lol:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Is this an offensive missile? no, just more fuel for the hero.

Image

Image

Image
Now that the prince knows his body contains an armed nuke, he must act.

Image
He decides to fly into space and explode.

Image
All hang their heads in solemnity.

Image
Atom decides to risk himself

Image

Image

Image
O.k., does anyone familiar with the 2003 series see any familiar element here? :lol: :astro:

Hi, Jeffbert! This is your best work yet! I especially liked the comment about George Jetson moonlighting from his series because it's been cancelled :lol:

Since I have not watched an episode of 2003 Astro Boy in a long while I won't hazard a guess and just wait for the answer! I am sure this episode would be great to watch in its entirety.

I :heart: :astro: :)

It appears Atom can't use his legs in a series of these -- is it just coincidental he's on his tummy, or is something wrong?

Another great look into an episode I hope to see some day! Thanks, Jeffbert!

GOOD GUESSES, but all are wrong. Notice how the one robot is about to explode, he flies away to save the others. The thing he is holding, AstroBoy03, is the electro-brain of Prince Louis. In '03 DENKU, Skunk had strapped a bomb on Denku, and it was about to explode. Atom grabbed D, flew high into the air, there was the explosion, and fears among the people, who concluded that both A & D were gone. Then, Atom flew into view, cradling D in his arms. Happy ending; I think that element may have been inspired by this ending. :p

Thanks, ASTROBUDDY! I actually made a similar comment about Rock losing the role in IVAN THE FOOL the the ribbon girl. What exactly do you find so pleasing about this thread? Is it the text?
