Astro Boy Teaser Trailer!

November 24th 2008 12:11
Astro Boy manga cover

I think it's safe to say that many of us grew up watching Astro Boy, and hoped desperately that we could be a boy robot, with the strength to beat up much bigger robots.

Sure, his weird, pointy hair was discomforting, as was his tendency to fight evil shirtless, but that dude fired lasers out of his ass, man. Seriously - ass lasers.

This cat was decked out with lasers, in his fingers, and flashlights in his eyes. You couldn't get one up on him, even if you were an insane villain. Still, though, all he wanted was to be accepted as his school for children with impossibly large eyes.

The teaser trailer for "Astro Boy" shows that's it's all CGI, and it's coming out in 2009 - people are already complimenting the trailer for suggesting that the movie will be true to the original cartoon.

Luckily, Astro Boy never grows up, and never puts on weight. It was only a matter of time before I grew up, I guess, and started to think about asking his human sister out. She grew up to be a fox, man.

In case you've forgotten just how hard Astro used to rock, here's the opening sequence from the 80s cartoon:

An epic I hope.

Atlas was the ultimate tragic villain.

Good to see they don't look like tampering with the wheel . . .

Fond memories of Astro from the late 60's - he's certainly an enduring cartoon hero.

Damo, Atlas was the man! Did he ride a robot horse, too?

MNG, wow, Astro has been on TV for a while, eh?
