156, Robot Mayor

Postby jeffbert » 6 years ago

Image
This episode will show how Cobalt got his new hair style. :lol:

Image
Upon the invitation to a certain nation's celebration of a robot Mayor (which is not a big deal, since#43, His Highness Dead Cross (Ditto) saw the inauguration of the 1st ROBOT PRESIDENT, but anyway, it is a great honor.

Image
The car is automated, but Atom's siblings are bored with the leisurely drive, so, press a button for a steering wheel.

Image
Since it is a flying car, why not take a shortcut?

Image

Image
:lol:

Image
Everything is high-tech, & computers have automated nearly everything.

Images I omitted show traffic flowing smoothly, etc.

Image
The Mayor at left, & his aide, ‘Margarito’ at right. She is portrayed by Yuriko (Maria) of #85, Demented Beltway (76, Mad Beltway); it was the wiggle in her walk that Fred Ladd & Co. cut from the ELV of that episode. :heart: Her 2nd appearance was in #111, Robot Polymer (--, --).

Image

Image
Raymo, the robot Mayor is malfunctioning, as indicated by his eyes flashing. He may have inspired the appearance of the Sphinx in the Atom Returns manga.

Image

Image
The man's name, as near as I could tell, is Dr. ‘ISAACA’; who created Raymo.

Image
:blush: I know I have seen these guys before, but cannot recall which episode.

Image
Hanako-sensei of 69, Rebellion of the Dinosaur People ("Miss Ann Thrope" in 59, Dinosaur Dilemma) lost her job to a much younger chaperone in 2003's Franken. :lol: Hanako also appears in 132, Prince Louis (--, --). In this current episode, she is a mere extra.

Image

Image

Yuriko is showing the kids around the city, here, & in the next few images:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

These next few remind me of the film version of WIZARD OF OZ:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
I have all the frames needed for an animated GIF; just ask!

Image
I did not know that robots had ear wax. :D

Image

Image
:hyo:

A commotion had started outside.
Image

Image
Raymo has gone berserk & everyone blames his creator.

Image

Image

Image
This appears to be the city's central computer; it may have inspired the one in URAN'S QUEST.

Image

Image
Margareito leaves the kids in a posh furnished hotel room, but--

Image
It turns out to be a gilded cage.

Image

Image
:o hmy: You just know Ladd would have cut this.

Image

These next two seem rather funny, unless you know that Atom is trying to break out, but failing.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Uh-oh! Escaping will not be as easy as it seemed.

:astro: More to come!

Someone already posted a few scenes from this one before, I remember Cobalt's hair styling and Sporkiar is already using that as an Avatar!

*Casually invades thread* I see I have been summoned~ vwv

Aah, yes. I have waited for a thread for this episode for awhile. This one is definitely one of my favorites for a number of reasons.
But that hair though. It never fails to crack me up. :lol:

I think Robot Mayor's name is more accurately translated as "Reymon" or Raymond or Ramon.

The slap on the face of the girl would very probably have been cut by Ladd as he knew what was acceptable to Standard and Practices of US broadcasters of the day. Although they could also have probably just edited it in such a way that you could see the slap, but not the full impact.

I have also waited for you to get to this episode.

Thank you again for posting another of the 89.
Can't wait for the concluding part.



I :heart: :astro: :)

In #183 'Japanese People from Space', Astro slaps grown-up Tobio in the face for disintegrating the outer space double of Dr. Tenma with the downsizing gun. The scene startles me each time I see it, like, "Astro hiting a human? And if that alone wasn't enough, it's actually Tobio he's hitting?" :eek:
Not sure if Ladd would have left that scene uncut as well...

Well a slap is different than a punch. The former is almost like a gesture rather than a physical blow in anger and not really intended to cause harm.

True, Tetsuwan Penguin, but he did knock her to the ground. Most of the American kids watching the dubbed episodes likely had been spanked rather than slapped on the face; thus the two spankings that passed censorship in the earlier episodes, while face slapping rarely, if ever did. I think I will make a thread about it.

While Raymo or 'Raymon' or Raymond or whatever his name is pursuing the kids, the cop robot next to him disagrees with him--

Strangewings: what does the booklet say about his name?

Image
The robot Mayor flips out, & becomes homicidal.

Image
:cry:

Image
These flying robots have no such scruples as that police robot had.

Image

Image
:o hmy: This is gonna hurt!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Must be double-jointed elbows.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
That one woman resembles one on Star Trek's Charlie X

Image
One man in this pic seem to have either a growth on his face, or an enormous wad of chewing gum in his mouth. :p

Image

Image

Image
As far as I can tell, the Mayor had told his people that Atom was a dangerous robot.

Image

Image

Image
:hyo:

Image
Is that the MACH 5 in the background? :p

Image
I thought this was cute, so I have frames for a GIF.

Image

Image
:tezuka:

Image
:tezuka:
In a later episode, this fleeing crowd will be dressed as soldiers, including the babies. :p

Image
A new hairstyle?

Image

Image

Image
:lol:

I'm sure that there is a cultural difference here. It may not be politically correct, but in some countries face slapping is rather accepted as 'normal'. I recall there once being a contest in Russia where the contestants slapped each others faces for hours on end. Rather bizarre I'll admit!


I posted that same image of Atom's cowlicks blown back in flight before in another thread. http://www.astroboy-online.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8212&highlight=windswept&page=5
AprilSeven mentioned she'd seen that same effect on him before, but viewed from the back, never from the front! His 'hair' in that shot reminds me of MY long hair when I was in college! (Almost shoulder length). I rather like that, it looks good on him!
