Astro Boy

I was reminiscing with an old childhood friend about the plethora of Japanese programming we watched while growing up in Philadelphia. We not only had the traditional stations representing NBC, ABC, CBS and PBS... but loads of UHF stations...

  • Channel 17
  • Channel 23
  • Channel 29
  • Channel 48
  • Channel 57

One of our favorite programs was Astro Boy, a space-aged Pinocchio of sorts. Well, with all of the good and (mostly) bad remakes of old programming... perhaps this will be one that they finally get right?

Check out the trailer, below:

You true fanboys can follow the promotional materials being developed at The Astro Boy Movie Web Site.
